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

152 posts in this topic

Shocked to see RW with more rushing yards.

 

Trying to see it through uninterested observer eyes and right now it is a tough question.  But a good problem to have.

 

Interesting that Cam is back in the equation(s) again..... as recently as 2-3 weeks ago it would have been RW vs. RGme or Luck with no mention of Cam at all.

Marino and Cowher's opinions are the only ones that really hold weight with me... and whaddya' know, they both took Newton.  Sharpe as well.

 

They summed it up best:  You have to gameplan for Russell Wilson's offense, not Russell Wilson.  You have to gameplan for Cam Newton.

 

That is what it boils down to.  I will admit though.  Between Luck, Kaepernick, RGIII and Wilson.  I would take Wilson.  Luck to me is more hype than anything.  

 

Wilson has a way of Jaking it.  How jake used to pull it out his @SS.  Wilson seems to have the knack too.

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.

Boomer told a straight out lie when he said Wilson can do what Cam does.

He had 2 games where he rushed for a shitload of yards (over 100 against the Colts I think), but he still isn't half the runner Cam is.  I'd say he's on par with Cam as a straight up scrambler, and a better thrower on the run than Cam.  Honestly, I think Wilson might be the best thrower on the run in the NFL.

if the seahawks and panthers were to replay week one with both teams looking like they do right now and rivera game managing like he is, the panthers win. 

 

i have no doubts about that. 

 

if we face them in the playoffs and have to play in seattle, the only advantage they have is that stadium. you put them in a neutral setting and the panthers win.
