Who would you choose for the next 5 years? Russel Wilson, Cam Newton, Andrew Luck, or Ed from Good Burger Aka Bob Griffin

At the risk of throwing out hyperbole like "it's not even close", I will just simply say Cam, without hesitation. Luck has had a great rookie year. Luck's team has also benefitted from a ridiculously easy schedule (still haven't even played the Texans) and also had a huge emotional lift after Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia. Even still, the Colts are still -41 in point differential on the year (don't think this means anything in comparing teams? ask Vegas oddsmakers!). By comparison, the Panthers, with a much more difficult schedule, are only -57!

Cam also has six fewer INT's and leads the league by a wide margin in yards per attempt. As we all know, Cam is still bigger, stronger, faster.

Let's just be patient and be happy that we have our guy. A new regime will do wonders for Mr. Newton.

It's not even close (couldn't resist).

Cam's only like .1 faster according to combine numbers. Just FYI. He is more shifty though. No comparison on that.

Wilson doesn't belong in the conversation.

I like Cam as much as any prospect int he past 20 years.... I do worry a little bit about his intangibles.... his character.... but I still take him over Luck and RG3 I think. All 3 should be HOF caliber guys barring injury.

Cam has the most upside. Not over yet but his rookie year has been better than these guys individualistically.

However I would take the Seahawks, Redskins and Indy's coaching and backroom staff hands down.

I asked this question partially because I went to The Panthers vs Broncos game a few weeks back. Everyone there I asked seemed to wish we had Luck instead. They were Panthers fans BTW.

No they weren't. They were dumbasses. F*ck them.

I'm surprised nobody has picked Bob over Cam or Luck. Based on stats this year. Seems like everybody has rode his dick as of late.

Running in shorts speed is not even close to running on the field speed. Luck has some wheels, but he's not as fast as Cam.

Not really sure you could go wrong with any of these guys really. Cam adds an element that you can't get from the others. Because of his size you can count on him to be a part of the rushing game. It seems like more of a novelty with the others. I love Wilson. Had to watch him destroy my heels for years. I knew he would be good, and he will have a great long career. RGIII is also a special player who should see a lot of success. We all know Luck is about as good as it gets as far as prospects. With all that said, I wouldn't trade a more matured Cam Newton for anything. He's upside supersedes them all imo.

I'm picking Cam. No question, no concern, no regret. He has every single tool, and when he gets a coaching staff that let's him play quarterback instead of glorified fullback he'll be the best in the NFL.

Thats also without pads and in a straight line. You've got to remember that players who aren't natural speed demons or don't have track history generally train pretty hard for the 40 for the combine because it's the single most overrated trait in football and literally makes or breaks your draft stock. Hell look at Dontari Poe... someone had a gif of him being stonewalled by a small running back and his size and combine speed suggest that RB should of been goop on the bottom of his shoe.

These types of threads are pointless. Cam is our QB whether you like it or not. Whether you desire another QB or not.
