Cam Newton: Best First Two Seasons Ever

158 posts in this topic

The question of whether Newton or Marino had the best first 2 years in quarterbacking history is academic.

It is just spectacular that Cam is either #1 or #2.

exactly... did any of you guys who wanted Cam realistically think that 2 years in we'd be trying to decide if he had a better first two seasons than arguably the best (or one of the best:P) pure passers ever to play the game?

I was dumb... I am glad I was wrong about him... but even once I got on board, even when he was playing well early on, I really didn't imagine that two years in he'd have amassed this kind of body of work

cmIm just glad members of the huddle that hated Cam, and the idea of drafting him 2 years ago can admit he is awesome. Marino, and even Delhomme played in a different time. I just think Jake was the best QB we have ever had, and until we win something, that will remain my belief. QBs are judged by what they win. People hate on Peyton because he "only" has 1 ring. Peyton Manning, the greatest QB of all time.

Jake was a better leader, emotional sparkplug and "professional".

Cam is by far the better QB and once he irons out a few things he still struggles with he could be legen...wait for it....dary.

At last check Brady is still throwing temper tantrums on the field and screaming at his receivers when it's clearly his fault. No one is questioning his maturity and professional skills.

We need to find silly faults to offset the taent. I get it.

And please remind me again, why is Cam being compared to a QB who was already a Vet when you got him?

Jake was backing up Aaron Brooks. Some veteran. Really, what did he learn, from Aaron freaking Brooks?

Jake did more than that....he was a championship team playing professional football in Europe. Backed up Kurt Warner on that Championship squad and Warner has good HOF odds bc ya know....he could play.

Jake was a vet and had been a professional for yearS. He didn't just back up Aaron Brooks for a season and then suddenly become our guy

Cam was spiralling down during the losses and I was beginning to think he would get his head on right, but he did. Everybody better watch out cus this dude is learning fast and once he can close out games, he will be a force to reckon with.

i've been watching some of cam's games from last season and early this season and he does look very, very different at this point. better footwork, quicker decisions, fewer "what the fug was he looking at" moments. he just looks more comfortable in general.
