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 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.

I like this comment:

"Shut up, Don."

Oh wait, that was me.

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.

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.

It was actually a good premise, but the comparison was lazy and sloppily researched.

VY went into strip clubs beating people up, Cam just sulks in the locker room and has composure issues (from an unbiased fan standpoint)

Espn first take had the audacity, actually Stephen A. Smith, to say that Cam was Vince Young as well...This is getting ridiculous.

When in doubt, compare the supposed "mentally unstable" african american QB to Vince Young.

Works everytime.

Agreed. It's clearly too early to damn him, but the anointment was early too. He has to lead the team to his first victory over a good team before the ticker tape parade begins...

Wait a minute. Did you just cite ESPN First Take in a serious football discussion?

...Wait...Did you cite Stephen A. Smith at all...ever?


I think that's a bannable offense. Or should be.
