I'll take the word of a guy like Warren Moon who's actually played QB in the NFL and lived thru the experience vs. a guy like Jerry Rice who never played with one in the NFL. Respect his opinion, but he's in a dream world if he doesnt think the identity of a QB doesnt play into his perception. The QB position is basically the tool the NFL uses to market the game to certain fans. Change that dynamic, and the NFL is basically the NBA.
Huuurrrr anyone who even slightly says anything negative about my secret lover Cam Newton is wrong and stupid duuuur Jerry Rice not know nothing bout qbs hurrr dream world durrr mental chamber bluurrr duuur Cams mentor said he is good cuz he is black durrrr
The Panthers are irrelevant and boring. Jerry Richardson will not live forever. 10 years from now he more than likely wont be the owner of the Panthers anymore. So thinking we're just gonna continue with the status quo forever is very naive. How long do you think we can survive with the "just happy to have an expansion" mentality? 16 years in? People in the city and state dont care about this football team right now, and while that might not bother some people, some of us fans who have pumped thousands to millions of dollars into this baby want to see it be the best it can be. Why would you not want to sell tickets? Why would you not want to be exciting? Why would you not want to be relevant to your region and your sport? I think JR has done a disservice to this fanbase by conditioning so many of us to be OK with losing and being totally irrelevant. I dont see this with the Bobcats fanbase, they want to win, and get the big stars, and sell out games and all that. But it seems some of us Panther fans just want this to be "our team" with a bunch of mid tier to no name scrubs representing us and forever be that small market club no one ever thinks about or takes seriously.
You and I may only post gifs as our posts until the draft, if Newton is selected then I will be banned for posting to many gifs, if he is not, you will be banned for posting to many gifs. It is now a contest and you must accept.
horrible comparison. Alex smith dreams about having cam newton's arm. Accuracy is yet to be seen you act like cam threw 40 picks last season. As far as athletic ability, yes i know alex is looked at as a mobile qb but,really how many highlights have you seen of him dodging the pass rush and picking up 20 yards?
I think your still hurt the pick isn't gabbert.
You are kidding right? Alex Smith is the perfect comparison.
Alex Smith had a huge arm coming out, maybe not as big as Newtons, but damned close, go read his scouting reports. Also, Jamarcus Russel has a bigger arm than Newton.
Cam Newton has very mediocre accuracy, I watched him play, I have watched highlights, when he hits those deep throws they are to wiiidddee open receivers 90% of the time. Maybe you missed the combine where he overthrew just about every pass without pressure, no pads, and non covered receivers. Or his pro day where he missed 10 passes also under the same circumstances, only more scripted, I could make those passes without pressure.
As far as highlights of him breaking college player tackles and running away, I can't find any for Alex Smith due to the limited amount of college video of him on youtube, but I can find you Vince Young, Pat White, Troy Smith, and plenty of other shitty nfl qbs who did.
Just about every scouting report says the same thing about Alex Smith and Cam Newton. Except Newton gets knocks for attitude, and character issues, where as Smith does not. Not to mention Smith was the better passer.
