Cam Newton Dishes On Where QB Positions Going, Ray Lewis, R. Kalil SB Prediction, & His Own Panther Playoff Prediction

Cam Newton gave a speech and answered questions at the Big Atlantic Classic Tip-Off Banquet on Sunday (the one where RG3 couldn't make it). And while he was there, so was The Register Herald to interview him or summarize it.

In the article, Cam discussed the Kalil SB prediction/Ad, and the effect it had on the team. The Panthers not making the playoffs in 2012. The current elite "Old Guard" vs the young, potentially elite "New Guard" QB's (I know that's a hot topic here lately); his views on the Panthers, as well as a Super Bowl prediction, and why.

The article also mentions his interaction with the crowd; Stating he sang Happy Birthday to a fan (I'm guessing it was a female one, or little kid, otherwise that would be kinda awkward, don't ya think)? He allegedly signed upwards of 1000 autographs (Yikes/Good Grief!)--before and after the event, and answered about 30 audience questions.

He even caught a fans pass. Wow! They got their moneys worth for sure. I hope Cam did to?.... Just kidding. LOL.

Here is an excerpt when asked about the Old guard Elite QB's, such as Brady, Manning. Brees. Rogers, etc., vs the potential New Guard Elite QB's in himself, RG3, Wilson, Luck and Kaepernick:

“It’s very different,” Newton said. “The picture that people are painting for quarterbacks in this league has to be different. Gone are the days of the quarterbacks who just sit in the pocket and have a big arm. Nowadays, you have to be mobile, to some degree. I’m not saying you have to be like a Robert Griffin and run a 4.4 or 4.3 and be able to scramble out of the pocket. But you have to be able to pose a threat to the defense.

“Just having that one skill set, it’s becoming rare. It’s becoming extinct. You look around the league, you see Russell Wilson. Andrew Luck has the skill set that he still can be mobile at times. Robert, obviously, and a quarterback that is in the Super Bowl (on Sunday), Colin Kaepernick. You see what he did to the league — put the whole league on notice with his performances in the playoffs.

“So it’s kind of changing, but at the same time you still have to be able to throw the football in the pocket. It’s kind of give-and-take.”

I like that answer. And notice how complimentary, thoughtful and inclusive Cam is, when discussing other players? However, he somehow has a reputation--by some for being a selfish, inconsiderate, narcissist-type thug. SMH.

Cam also had a Q & A session after his talk. Here's one of the exchanges:

Finally, a Carolina fan asked Newton if the Panthers will make the playoffs in 2013.

“You know what, we will make the playoffs,” Newton said. “You can document it.”

Not exactly a full-page ad, but a guarantee all the same.

Before others freak out: Telling a Carolina fan this after a paid dinner, doesn't equate to a Kalil type prediction. LOL.

I'm too lazy at the moment to give further highlights or insight. It's a decent article, if it's just to hear Cam's Post Season comments on the Panthers and the NFL (instead of viewing his photo's by stalkers, I meant Auburn classmates posted on the Internet), while waiting for the Super Baugh, finally, and the draft in April. Here's the link.

2 years from now you're at an Applebee's in Charlotte. You hear the quickening pace of "clap, clap, clap" as waiters and waitresses approach your table to sing happy birthday and you're wondering why in the fug you're at Applebee's. You look up and see Jimmy Clausen singing to you. He invites you to SIN night at Bar Charlotte. What do you do? WHAT DO YOU DO?

I go. Probably get some ugly hoodrats Jimmy's posse brings. Get laid for the first time in 2 months. Win. Call him Pickles the entire night.
