The entire quote was accurate at this point in Newton's career. He will continue to improve. He is a great quarterback currently. He does miss some wide open receivers. He threw the ball badly in a few games for a couple of quarters, then came up big late in the game. It is still early in his career and when his knowledge of the offense and experience on the field catches up to his incredible physical skills . . . watch out! To say that he will be in the Hall of Fame is a compliment. The made up portion is accurate, he does tend to throw high. That's not being critical, it is being objective. Newton is a great player though, no doubt.
Hoping for serious answers on two things I've noticed:
1) Why does he do press conferences in kind of scrubby clothing rather than a suit, with headphones around his neck and a hat on backwards? Why doesn't this come into criticism by anyone including media? No one even mentions it really. Is it because he wins? Why does his organization allow that? Have they just accepted that the suit thing is not his bag and don't care? Is it just because San Fran is a liberal ass city and they don't care that their face of the franchise has a conservative look?
2) Why does he always do his presser with Frank Gore sitting on his lap? I've seen this now three times... it's odd. Frank talks like he's taken too many head shots too.
