In Topic: Huddle Up with Cam Newton

Twas a good post, broseph

 

I agree. Hadn't seen the videos.

 

I do sort of wish OP hadn't included the R Wilson hate. Guy has a ring. He earned it. Cam hasn't earned his yet.


In Topic: So, no one learn anything from the bad call from the superbowl?

Any fool can criticize and most do.

Shula wouldn't have called that play. Remember getting stuffed running the ball against the 9ers in the playoffs last year

What is the point of posting that than? We're talking football

 

Just refuting your minimization of RW's college accomplishments. RW is not a pocket passer because he is short. Cam is physically a better athlete. Put RW's head on Cams body and I bet he functions better in the pocket.

i'm not talking about that. Dude literally said RW is smarter than Cam at the QB position by showing he graduated with a COMMUNICATIONS degree in 3 years and was taking masters classes.

 

All signs point to Cam being a better pocket passer at this point. I've watched RW whenever it doesn't go against the panthers and RW is not a legit pocket passer.

 

Graduating from NCSU with any degree in 3 years is an impressive accomplishment even for a non athlete. It requires discipline and taking many more classes per semester than the normal 5 year red shirt plan football players are on. Its a ridiculous accomplishment given the time requirements a major college football program puts on athletes. RW was a 2 sport player which makes it even more impressive.

 

College is more about teaching you to think and learn than it is any curriculum. Were you hiring someone for your business would you not give more credit to the guy who graduated in 3 years over another who took 5. I am not saying RW is smarter than Cam at the QB position. I am saying RW is smarter than Cam period at this point in time. Its just my opinion without knowing either one so take it for what its worth.

I did.  My caffeine intake in not sufficient this morning!  Does that invalidate my entire post?  Probably not (at least I don't think so, but then again I'm biased!).

 

To look at things differently:  If we'd won against Seattle, and beaten the Packers in a similar fashion, then there would be a very different narrative.  About Cam "growing up" and "maturing" as a QB.  About how he was "finally becoming a leader of men" or some other BS.  I do believe there is a media bias against Cam, but winning will change that around.

 

This is "Amurica," we love winners and stories.  Wilson has the story of being the short, 3rd round, 3rd QB when he came to Seattle.  Cam was the National Championship and Heisman winning QB picked #1.  Which has a better underdog story?  Who's had the bigger wins?  QBs get too much credit and blame.

 

Cam can cure the bias by being the winner.  It doesn't matter how, but if the TEAM starts winning big, and he makes some of these inches throws, then Cam's story changes.

 

We'll just have to wait until next season to see if we are able to make the changes required to change the story for the entire Panthers team.

 

Cam does not come out on the positive end of the spectrum in many comparisons with Russel Wilson. The guy graduated from NC State with a communications degree in 3 years. He took graduate level classes at Wisconsin during his time there. The guy is smart and it shows on the field. Cam is better from the neck down but that's about it. Put Wilson's head on Newtons body and then you will have a "greatest of all time QB" like many here think Newton already is.
