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.
