Recommended Posts



the article was dumb to compare it to vince young but it did have some good comments from Bill Polian.

the season is not even half way through and Cam has struggled.

Lets see if he can bounce back through hard work and film study before we call Cam Newton Vince Young.

I have a bad feeling about this.

I do too man. If the national media starts hating a guy and having the whole country jump on his back everytime something goes wrong, he will have a hard time making it. Vince never had Cam's arm or accuracy, but he did have that ability to carry a team. He was okay until his mom and Fisher said that they thought he went crazy. It seems like Cam has lost his ability to carry the team because when he did do it last year, the defense pulled him back down with them. Nobody is talking about how we tried to win an NFL game with the four plays on Tecmo Bowl Sunday, two running back fumbles, the probowl reciever dropping passes, or the already weak o-line playing with injuries. It is all Cam and he is taking a step back and he is the reason we lost. He is a beast, but when the beast is in the middle of the arena with on-lookers in the stands and trained assassins in the ring, it can be killed. In Cam's case if they mess his mind up, he will never be any good to anybody. It pisses me off, because our fanbase has started to agree with national media and that never happened here before.

Bill Walsh used to say that it took 30 starts to evaluate a quarterback. Thank God the national media has replaced that archaic system with one that can declare someone a unanimous rookie of the year after 16 games, and then a soon to be bust in the next 5.

really? just one bad game? hmmm i guess we differ on the definition.

My bad, there was the Giants game (where everybody sucked, mind you). So, my mistake. Outside of that, Cam hasn't played terribly. He's done what he's been asked to do, and unfortunately, Chud is screwing him over every game with stupid play calls.

Newton and Young's quarterbacking talents are, of course, not completely synonymous, with Newton's passing skills as a rookie far exceeding Young's, and Newton's running game setting a new standard for quarterbacks of any era. But in a big-picture way...

Lol.

"I can't back up my statement with statistics, but if you look at the big picture (i.e. broad strokes painted with the fact that they're both black dual-threat QBs who struggled in their sophmore years) you can kind of see what I was going for."
