Newton is nothing like JaMarcus Russell.
He's a lot like a young Brett Favre.
folks these days forget there was a time when people weren't sure if Favre was going to be a quality starter. He needed some improvement, and he got it. No reason why Newton can't do the same.
I never compared Cam Newton to Jamarcus Russell. I compared an attribute of Jamarcus Russell to that of Cam Newton. That attribute is simply accuracy. Since I was not around when Brett Favre had just entered the league, I have no frame of reference to compare the two, but I was around when Russell was, and it is an apt comparison. Cam has missed so many throws that it gets me very concerned, if this was a new issue I would chalk it up to the preseason. But it repeatedly returns year after year, at no point did I say he could not improve to become the type of quarterback that could take us to the playoffs and potentially to the Superbowl. Some people blew my statement way out of proportion.
