#2898312 What do you guys make of the Cam haters still out there today?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 19 August 2014 - 01:31 PM

Yes. To talk at length in an inflated or empty way. What better word to describe Steeler Mark or Eagle Eric or Browny Bob or (insert transplant fan nickname here).

 

Oh, I know what it means, and it was used appropriately.  I'm just not used to seeing it here :lol:

I agree with his outstanding sense of balance - I will never forget that one game he was playing in a rain deluge and did a sommersault and wound up on his feet and kept running somehow - but he is also a powerful runner and blocker and probably has one of the best stiff arms in the league when healthy.

 

All true.

 

You could argue the only thing really keeping him from being talked about as an elite runningback is his health.

My answer to the 'sexiest woman of all time' question has long been, continues to be, and will probably always be...

Even into her sixties - and now seventies - she stayed foxy.  Walter Matthau and Jack lemmon weren't the only guys who liked seeing her play in the snow in "Grumpy old Men".

I want to see him score a touchdown in the regular season.

 

That way I can hear what it sounds like when 70,000 people all go 'waka waka waka waka' at the same time :)

3 things still fuel the hate IMO.

 

1. Cam's narratives were set by ESPN and the like, and lazy people will continue following them

2. People simply can't admit they're wrong.

3. Sadly, race. It will always be a factor for some idiots. 

 

I don't think you can leave 'preferred college or pro team' out of that mix, and I'd probably put it high.

When it comes to Stewart, his best quality has always been - and I would say still is - his ridiculously good balance.

 

Stewart is like a human gyroscope.  It's no exaggeration to say he's got the balance of an elite gymnast.  And I'd say you saw that demonstrated pretty clearly on his touchdown runs in the last game.

 

If you're a defender and you try to take Stewart down with just a shove or a hit, chances are he'll turn and wave to you on his way to the end zone. If you want to stop Stewart, you have to wrap him up.  And frankly, given his speed, power and stiffarm, that's not so easy either.

 

Have made the comparison many times but it's still valid: Trying to knock Stewart off his feet is like trying to knock down a Weeble.  He may wobble, but he won't fall down.

 

A healthy Stewart is a definite asset, so I'd love it if he could stay healthy this season.

I think the mistake of NFL Europe was the 'Europe' part.

 

I love the idea of a minor league, but it should be in the US.

 

The NFL really needs to let go of this 'world wide' fantasy.

Good.

That's the kind of attitude that makes a good work ethic.

#2897811 Could you imagine if Cam had done this?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 19 August 2014 - 08:45 AM

If Cam flipped off the opposing bench, any s--t he got for it would be deserved.

But then Cam wouldn't flip off the opposing bench now, would he? So all in all this is a pretty dumb hypothetical. Quite possibly the dumbest of these 'what if Cam did this' threads yet.

"If you don't have Haters then you aren't doing something right."

 

If you give them relevance, or significance, you're doing something wrong.

Can't help wondering why the guy from the chain crew has a 'holy s--t' look on his face :blink:

 

Great job, Zod.

Oy :unsure:

 

Yes, there are racists out there, but I think it's pretty lazy to assume everybody who doesn't like Cam is a racist or a closet racist.  That's just silly.

 

For one, a pretty good contingent out of the "hater" parade are Alabama fans, Saint/Buc/Falcon fans, other NFL team fans, etc.  To be honest, I don't really give a rat's ass about their opinions because they're always going to be slanted.  Ask a Panther fan for a fair assessment of Matt Ryan and you'll get the same.  Big deal.

 

Panther fans though?  Based on what I hear from them, I'd say some are probably just pricks, but the majority of what I hear screams one primary thing:

 

Lack...of football knowledge.

 

First off, you've got a guy playing in his first preseason game after ankle surgery (a big deal for a QB, even one that doesn't run like Cam does) alongside teammates with whom he's only minimally practiced.  You seriously expected him to look good under those conditions?  What the hell were you thinking?

 

Beyond that though, and arguably more important, his performance last night was a sign of progress.

 

You heard me...Progress!

 

Why?  Because the Cam Newton of his first two years (you know, the one with crazy stats but a lousy win-loss record) was a guy who'd start games like a house on fire but then fade the longer the game went on.  He wasn't a finisher, and his record showed it.

 

The Cam Newton of last year?  Whole other story.

 

That Cam Newton might have started his fair share of games cold (most gunslingers do) but the longer the game went on, the better he got.  Hence, way more game winning drives than you'd seen at any time in his prior years.  And yeah, lesser stats, but a significantly improved win-loss record.  And that, ladies and gentlemen, is progress!

 

Heck, given the conditions, I wouldn't have been surprised if Newton had played his entire game like he did the first quarter.  But he didn't, and I'd argue that anybody who doesn't see that as a positive probably has a lot to learn about real world football.

I agree with the idea.

 

Frankly, if it were up to me, the active roster limit would also be increased (to 55).
