CBS Sports: "Cam Newton or Russell Wilson?" [Video]

152 posts in this topic

Russell Wilson is a stud, I'm not even gonna lie... he's going to be one of the best in the league for a long time... but you can't deny he's got a lot more help on the offensive side of the ball.  Not only that but also have a defense that isn't far behind ours (and in some people's opinions, better than ours).

 

Every Seahawks game I watch for every good Wilson play be it a scramble or what, there's consistent great runs by Lynch and amazing circus catches by his receivers and they get the YAC to go along with it.  Can't say the same for Cam's offensive help... aside from Olsen he has to put the ball right on the numbers every damn time to make a completion, very little margin of error.  I'm guessing that's what Marino, Sharpe, and Cowher are looking at as well.

 

Can you imagine how its gonna be when we get a receiver on the level of some of the best in the league?  unfortunately we are probably gonna have to make some pretty hefty trades to get a pick that high.. I doubt we get a top 18 pick for quite some time.

Cam will have to deal with these haters until he win a superbowl.

Tiny dick man. That's it. Russell is a cornball and that's what Boomer likes. A traditionalist who is blinded by how someone as black as Cam could shine so bright. Too bad he hasn't watched any of the press conferences this year to draw conclusions from.

Am I missing something?

Don't attack Russell Wilson, he carries himself a certain way and I commend that. Boomer does come across a bit like that though.

Crazy thing is, boomer is not the only one of his kind in the media with such rationale, that's why Cam hasn't been given all the accolades he deserves. There is a reason Cam was selected as top 50 player last year even on 7-9 team. I'd take the words of current players any day over those grumpy media types.

This. Wilson is a great player, he's not over-hyped nor under-hyped. He's respected because he's a very good player. No need to belittle the man.

Just saying I think that Boomer sees it that way. I personally respect both of them but to claim that he knows a personality based on pressed conferences....just something about his attitude.

I agree with you about Boomer, there is something personal he has against Cam that is personal. Especially when he references press conferences from last season which in all honesty is a much a do about nothing

The way Boomer went after Cam was very personal. Very Nolan Nawracki like. He didn't bring up his accuracy, he brought up press conferences. He didn't bring up his turnovers, he brought up his Super Man celebration. Boomer knows in his heart that Cam is a damn good player but he's clinging to these personality issues. This is about Boomer, don't be confused. This is about Boomer saying "I didn't have talent like Cam but I was a good locker room guy. I was a leader and gave good press conferences." "The way I did things was the right way". These retired athletes never lose their ego.

I'm not sure this is related in any way but I once heard Boomer tell a story about Cam. Boomer said he was helping out with a QB camp for young men. Cam was 13 years old at the time and had a cannon even then. Boomer was throwing some balls and dropping them in a trash can with accuracy. Cam said to him "wow sir you should have played football. You are pretty good at that". Cam had no idea who Boomer Esaison was...

 

Now I'm not going to sit here and say Boomer was petty because a kid didn't recognize him. But it's still a funny story.
