You say that quote in a good or bad connotation? Is he making a perfect throw or is he throwing it to the other team? Lol


Considering that Rodgers is top dog, good connotation. Newton had a few throws last year that were pin point, perfect lasers. If Cam continues to work on his mechanics, footwork, checkdowns and short game, he'll be a top five QB in no time.

IMO he is a more accurate John Elway.

Ridiculous talent, but needs to harness it a little more.

The only real thing missing from Cam's games is consistency.

I opened the thread and jumped to the sentence in bold. Then almost puked. Jim Kelly? OMG there couldn't be any QB with worse attitude than he had while he was playing. The man was a pompous a$$. Would throw his teammates under a passing bus, rarely gave credit for wins to others. And btw back then he was considered a "gun slinger". Glad Favre changed that definition.

What he had was Marv Levy, a Hall of Fame head coach, and Bill Polian as GM and a swarm of talent around him. If it wasn't for Frank Reich being his backup, the Bills would not have been as successful as they were. Every Bills fan knew it didn't take Kelly to win games.

There's no comparison for Cam Newton. None. Nada. Zero. He will be who he will be and we have the distinct pleasure of watching it happen.

This illustrates why Cam may be the most underrated player in the NFL.

His rookie season was so amazing that it made his 2nd season seem like a disappointment, when infact it was equally amazing given the challenges QB's encounter in their 2nd season.

I can't wait to see what year 3 looks like for this kid...

Actually, I did read the full article. Stats don't mean much and even less when you pick & choose what numbers are used. Comparisons mean even less.

Just giving a first-hand account of how Kelly was viewed by Bills fans. I don't get that Cam is thought of the same way by Panthers fans.

I don't jump, let alone to conclusions.

I think McNair more preceded Rothlesraper than Cam. Cam, with all due respect to McNair, is more dynamic.

McNair was a better passer than Newton is.


Cunningham 87-92


Newton is a better passer than Cunningham was.

Style wise he's a better match to Brett Favre.


I've been making this comparison for a while now. When I see Cam I see Favre.

I know this is premature, but, even if Cam only averages his first two years. He will be HOF. He may fall a tad short in passing stats. But the rushing yards and total TDs, which is big by the way, will put him in a totally new category.

He is still the prototype. He will always be first to accomplish, or do, something amazing. Let's hope SBs are in his future, cuz if he wins some of those it will be hard to dispel his legacy.

Been a Lions fan a looooong time. Finally have a franchise QB. Still a crappy team. Been a Panther fan since day one. Have had 3 Franchise QBs, with their current one leading to a bright future. Talk about two sides of a coin.

Newton is a better passer than Cunningham was.


Even when he was throwing 20+ TDs each year between 87-92? (1 year being 30)

As a side note he also ran between 500-950 yards each year between 87-92 as well.

There's no other QB that I can think of that can closely resemble Cam as much as Cunningham back then.
