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.

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 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

he plays nothing like Ben tho besides shedding defenders. young cam > younger big ben IMO Cam reminds me now of a 2010 Vick

RG3 reminds me more of Brees wit Vicks durability and Luck is like a bigger ARod

The favre comparison might hold weight remember Brett loves cam yall remember the interview with Deion Sanders this year? he said he'll take him over any young QB in the game..he maybe sees some of himself in Killa Cam.

I have no idea how young Elway looked lol ima youngin

exactly fug a hater if young killa cam plays anywhere close to young Vick or a 2010 Vick wit his arm & will to win/be one of the greats we'll be in a great position.

how can anyone hate on the comparison when he gave us and the entire league fits Vick was a problem and he ain't the problem now in Philly but that's another story.

Bens had the best football organization in the world around him. We all hope That our organization can be half of that round Cam. Only thing Cams got to work on to be a better version of Ben is accuracy. He does that, easily top 10 QB in the league. Possibly top 5. But it's obvious he has to work on that.

Sometimes I wish Cam was more like Vick only in the regards to running. Unlike Vick, Cam seems to stay in the pocket way to long instead of just taking off running. I think there have been plenty of times where the pocket just collapses or the DE is coming around the edge and Cam could just take off but doesnt. THAT being said, I understand why he doesnt, because he doesnt want to be nor is what Vick ever was in respect to being a running QB. That is all Vick did was drop back and take off running. Cam barely does that unless its a designed run play. In addition, Cam is a much better passer than Vick ever was.
