Stop using the term "haters" it is getting really fuging annoying, and you are not even using it properly, no one here who does not want Cam is jealous of him. How about using "People who do not want Cam" as more of an accurate generalization.
You are using ghetto speak improperly, and that is hard to do.
As many of you know, I have not exactly been totally supportive of Newton, however after watching games last night (all of em) and watching Newton very closely, he certainly brings excitement.
My second team is the Denver Broncos (I have lived in Colorado my whole life and watch every game), they drafted The Golden Calf of Bristol, when he came out in the game against the Raiders while watching Orton and his mediocrity for the whole season, The Golden Calf of Bristol just slammed everyone in Colorado with excitement that game. The busting off of huge runs, the huge arm that made miracle passes, his will to move the ball downfield, it was amazing and something Denver hadn't had since Elway.
I believe Newton can bring that will to win, and that excitement that no one in Carolina has had the opportunity to experience yet, it's kind of like "This is our franchise qb...this guy is gonna win us some rings" and you can look forward to football even more every Sunday.
The question is with him is does he have that will, and is his football iq smart enough to be able to execute this stuff.
One thing is for certain, we might not get another chance at a player like this again.
So many have stopped posting and contributing here since this process began, I wager half the Huddle will move on to new teams after Thursday. JOAT will be a Falcon fan next week. All you will hear is how great that Matt Ryan is. Anything is better than rooting for Cam Newton. ANYTHING. I'd root for Khadafi first!
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
