Cam Newton: Best First Two Seasons Ever

158 posts in this topic

Either way, both are phenoms and I find it hard to understand why anyone would be upset with our QB right now.

well falcons fans who had to watch a guy they all loathe beat the piss out of their team a few weeks ago seem to be upset with cam

You can't compare him to Marino, but Cam sure has the physical skills to become the Marino of the modern QB's.

Hahaha... I stand corrected. well I guess non-Panthers fans might not like him very much. Good catch.

Honestly, it's hard to find anyone to compare him to. I can't think of anyone with his size, strength, speed, elusiveness, arm strength, accuracy (good, but improving).

I think if he improves his touch passing (every pass isn't a laser shot), becomes more consistent with his footwork and stops trying to win games by himself (hit checkdowns quicker - he still needs to learn when to give up on a play), he'll find the wins and late game comebacks will be easier.

there are a ton of guys who are better pure passers than cam will ever be. you'd be crazy to argue otherwise.

it's his athleticism combined with the fact that he can make any throw on the field that makes him who he is. the 15 yard out is kind of unofficially the firewall that divides NFL QBs from your college variety and cam sticks those in his sleep. his mechanics are still a mess sometimes but that's fixable. what we've seen out of him in seasons one and two isn't close to the last word on cam.

Marino and Newton do not belong in the same sentence. Seriously, you guys live in a dream world.

Yeah, we are like totally upset and stuff!! It's just awful watching your team win 13 games. I'm like totally jealous of a headcase quarterback who can't read defenses!!

You nailed it!!! That 15-20 yd out separates great NFL arms from great college arms. And the biggest ***** I see in Griffin's armor, is his inability to consistently stick it in there.
