But KT you're missing something. The first qb selected in 2013 will be black.

But how can you sit in the pocket if your coach is calling spread option plays. I have seen black QBs who played from the pocket in college get called out on draft day because they were slow and weren't mobile. I remember coach Prince at Kansas State saying that he had to have Freeman show off his running skills in games because the NFL scouts thought he wasn't mobile enough and that was a negative.

It seems as though if these black QB aren't able to be dual threats, do amazing physical feats and be super human on the field NFL teams have no need for them to start. If all they can do is stand back there and pass the hell with it.....basically they feel they can get a white QB to do that.


That is the poblem that and coaches needing to win now in college. Look at The Golden Calf of Bristol mobile qb but can't pass to save his life. If he was black he wouldn't have been drafted as a qb. He would have been converted to a te. But a player coming out of college can dictate what position he is being drafted for. White did it a lot of teams wanted him to come in as wr.

Here is a major problem with black qb's coming into the league. Its not their fault but more on the system in college. Most are used to be duel threats and never taught how to play in a pro system offense. Their athletisiam actually hurts their development. I have seen it over and over. Great qb in college but can't cut it in then nfl. Or great college qb but made wr because he never learned the pro system or given the chance. Cam right now on the same road. He needs to sit in the pocket and play qb not rb.


Unfortunately, we're seeing it this year with the Carolina Panthers. This offense is gimmick bullshit. We did just enough gimmickry and option last year to give the D something to think about. This year, it's all we do.

by the way, if anyone wants to see a listing of all the QBs drafted since 2002 who are white I'll be glad to post it. Its well over 100 players and today less than 10% of those guys have winning records or are still in the league. Why cant Cam be compared to or accused of being one of those guys when people want to slam him?


Cam Newton 7-14 as a starter he has lost twice as many games as he has won.

Just one fourth quarter comback.

Will he get better?I think he will, but get over it KT until he becomes a clutch winner and not an entertainer he is going to draw justifiable critism.

Problem is....people are comparing him to current day Eli or Rodgers and not against them 21 games into their careers. Teams records are comparable with Newton's individual performance being better
