Look what former Ducks coach said.

 

Now, Newton has erupted over the last three weeks, re-establishing himself as one of the most talented young signal-callers in the NFL. But former Oregon head coach Mike Bellotti, now an analyst for ESPN, says he thinks current Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota will be better than Newton at the next level.

 

 

Bellotti said Mariota is a "better student of the game" than Newton, and that Newton -- a 6-foot-5 and 245-pound physical marvel who ran the 40-yard dash in 4.58 seconds at the combine -- has been able to rely on his natural gifts to get by.

"Cam has never had to work as hard, and I think he is finally now starting to get it and spend time in the classroom with the coaches," Bellotti said. "A lot of things come really easy to Cam. I think he still thinks he can just go out there and do it.

 

 

Depending on one's perspective, this is actually a good thing. Cam must be doing something right (even though Bellotti doesn't fully realize it).

One man's opinion. Not the concensus. Don't care

I don't generally listen much to college coaches (or former ones) comparing their guys to NFL players.

Not exactly the best source for objective information :unsure:

Mariota is a weaker version of Manziel.

I know it's the middle of the week and there's nothing to talk about but was his opinion necessary to read about? I really don't care what he has to say.

How the hell would this guy know ANYTHING about how much time Cam puts in studying film, the playbook, working with coaches, etc.?  Seems I recall hearing Cam had a pretty damn good work ethic.  He even went over film with his father and brother in the off-season to address his sideline demeanor.

 

You know what they say opinions are like...and everybody has one...and sometimes they stink.

Well we might as well tank the season now guys. Trade Cam for a 4th and draft Mariota.

Actually, no, it wasn't necessary.

 

So why did you click on the topic again?

Unless Mariota has been at Oregon a really long time, he is not Bellotti's QB.
