It doesnt really bother me that RG3 is getting all this attention. The media loved to bash LeBron too and said he was selfish, poor attitude, handled the whole decision the wrong way, and said he is not a clutch player. Perhaps this was true, but he wins a title and now they are comparing him to Jordan. Its just how the media works. What have you done for me lately is the motto of this league.
Let the media praise RG3. Hes a great player and will be a great QB in this league for years. Redskins gave up a ton for him. We didnt give up a ton for Cam. Cam set records his rookie season. RG3 has a lot of work to do if he wants to match those. Cam hasnt had as good of year this year but the league has had a season to adjust to him and now it appears he is making the adjustments to the league and has played really well the last 2 games. How will RG3 react?
Bottom line is I wouldnt trade Cam Newton for RG3. I think Cam Newton is going to lead this team to a Super Bowl eventually. Sure he pouts and it doesnt look good when he throws a towel over his head, looks like his dog just died when speaking to the media after a loss, and shows off at any chance he can(superman thing, and now the first down gesture), but this is why the media isnt high on him. Its not b/c of talent, but b/c they think he has a poor attitude, isnt clutch and is immature. Sounds very similar to LeBron James to me.
Cam will lead this team to great things, and then people, including us, will get tired of hearing them blow his junk everyday in the media. Just a matter of time. Quit worrying about RG3 talk and the lack of Cam talk. We got ourselves a FRANCHISE QB.
