I was watching ESPN yesterday and they were talking about QB's. Someone came on and talked about how Cam Newton is playing well and running the ball better then any other QB.
That boggles my mind. He is not a running QB. He is a pocket QB who can run.
When he doesn't run, people say he should be running.
When he does run, people say he shouldn't be running.
He's playing at a very high level right now - but his threshold for error is very small in regards to the media. A lot of the mainstream media guys are licking their chops for him to have a poor outing - which he hasn't yet.
At the end of the video they say "Not only is Rodgers undefeated at home in 2014, he holds an unbeaten record against Carolina"
I immediately spit out my drink as I vividily remembered the game Peppers threw Rodgers 15 yards out of bound and Steve Smith caught a Delhomme bomb in the 4th to get the win. How the hell do mistakes like this happen? The people that put it together couldn't have thought "Hey I bet Rodgers hasn't lost to the Panthers lets throw that blurb in there"
I dunno, it just pisses me off.
It's called lazy journalism. Writers/editors not double checking the "facts" that the interns and low level employees hand them.
Obviously, a lot of things happened, and didn't happen that game (called back TD by KB, Cam misses Olsen, Cotch Drops potential game winning TD catch, etc.). But if Gano, simply makes that FG, they win!!
