Champ Bailey: Cam Newton is a bigger Michael Vick

[QUOTE] Regardless of all the national criticism, Champ Bailey knows what he and the Denver Broncos will face this weekend.

"What Cam can do, nobody can do that," Bailey told The Denver Post. "He's big. And when he runs, he's hard to get down. He'll make you look stupid. And he has a cannon.

"When you combine all that, it's like a bigger version of Michael Vick -- but I think (Newton) has a better upside."

"He's a special talent."

In reality, Vick and Newton have very little in common.

Newton bears way more similarity as a QB to Brett Favre or John Elway.

If you want a better version of Vick, look in DC.

I'd take 50% of either one over 100% of Michael Vick.

Newton's already got an advantage over Vick in that he has a functioning brain.

Except for the fact that he's not...Vick is just a pathetic excuse of a human and player all around. Cam actually has something to strive for and has a god given talent

Cam is a young Big Ben if he could run.

Cams got a long way to go accuracy wise to be anything close to Ben.

To be fair, Big Ben was a game manager his first few seasons in Pittsburgh. He didnt pass for 3,000 yards til his 3rd season. They had a nice running game to lean on that helped Ben from having to carry the load. We dont.

Big Ben could throw the short dink and dunk.....that really is all Cam glaringly is off on. Young Big Ben that can run.

And it isn't about systems or what they were asked to do.....of course that is different. It is about how they play

While I wouldn't want to build a team around Vick, Cam has a long way to go to be as good as Vick in his prime.

Mike really has a special arm. I have never seen anyone able to flick a 40 yard fastball like he does. I still like Cam more.

I think most on here are too young to have seen John Elway in his youth, but yes, Cam's abilities and style of play have always reminded me of a young Elway.

That's not to say they will have a similar career path. It's just too early. Cam may surpass anything Elway ever did, or he may fall woefully short, but so far they look like similar players.

Think hes more like big Ben with a dash of Vick. And not because he can run. Because of his elusiveness.

Anyone who compares Cam to Vick losses lots of credibility in my mind.

Cam Newton is more John Elway or Aaron Rogers than Vick. RGIII is the proto Vick with upside that takes shots like Vick as well
