22 of 30 top high school prospects choose Cam

25 July 2014 - 07:50 AM

After being asked "Of Cam Newton, Johnny Manziel, or Jameis Winston, who would you want as your quarterback?"

Choosing Newton:

ESPN 300 No. 2 Martez Ivey: You could pick Manziel, too, but it’s what Cam brings. He always has that smile on his face. I remember watching him when Auburn was down to Alabama, he still had a smile on his face and went out there and won the game. He wins.

No. 10 Tim Settle: He can be locked down and not be able to throw, but he can run. And I’m trying to tell you, he doesn’t get just 10 yards -- he can get 15 if you want 10. I also think he was more mature than Johnny and Jameis.

Is it a good sign that young kids actually show greater wisdom than our media?

 

 


Falcan'ts ship off a former starting LB for a backup QB

Dent was a 3rd round selection for them in 2012 and started a lot of games for them in 2012 (less so last year).

Curious move considering the Weatherspoon injury and they're lack of depth at the LB position moving to a 3-4.

Maybe they just figure that Matty Melt is just bound to get hurt behind their OL and they need a potential starter behind him?

Doesn't make much sense to me.

Falcan't defense takes a hit

Atlanta Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon ruptured his Achilles tendon and will miss the 2014 season, the team announced today.

Weatherspoon was working with the Falcons medical staff when the injury occurred.

“During Sean’s run today with our medical staff, he suffered an injury,” head coach Mike Smith said. “We sent Sean to the doctor for some additional testing and evaluation and unfortunately the results showed that he ruptured his Achilles tendon.

 

 

 

 

You rupture it while working WITH medical staff?

 

Pro tip: Keep anyone on the Falcan'ts medical staff the hell out of Charlotte.


Excellent article on Cam Newton and dissection of a great play at Pre-Snap Reads

It’s easy to point to the defensive side of the ball and suggest the Panthers are only good now because of a better defense and not because Newton is a good quarterback. That is the wrong angle to look at this young quarterback and his franchise.

 

The real question is why were the Panthers bad during Newton’s first two seasons. He has always produced statistically and been ahead of the curve in terms of his development. A limited supporting cast on offense and an underwhelming defense simply held the franchise back from team success.

 

Now that the team is good and the nonsensical P.R. attacks based on body language have been eradicated, we can really focus on what Newton is.

 

Newton is a developing quarterback who is quickly becoming one of the best in the NFL at his position. Last season, he affirmed that idea by becoming less of a risky playmaker and more of a refined quarterback.

Nice story on Jerricho Cotchery

Life-changing moment

In the spring of 1998, shortly before his 16th birthday, Cotchery and his mother got into an argument one evening after he said he was going out with his friends for the night. His mother told him his family was going to church the next day.

Cotchery left the house angry and in a bad mood. The last thing he told his mother was he wouldn’t be joining them at church.

The following day Cotchery was returning from an AAU basketball game in Tuscaloosa with several friends, including Brian Talley and Karlos Dansby, the Cleveland Browns linebacker who is also from Birmingham.

Talley was driving when a tire blew, causing the vehicle to flip several times.

Cotchery suffered cuts on his arms, hands and head. There were so many glass fragments embedded in his wrist, doctors couldn’t remove them all, Cotchery said.

But he and Dansby escaped serious injury.

Talley, who Cotchery said was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the vehicle and died at the scene.

“That kind of changed everything for me,” Cotchery said. “And helped me see beyond myself.”

Cotchery said he began attending church regularly and tried to be a better son and brother. He also started spending less time on the streets.

“That’s when things kind of slowed down for me,” he said. “You look back on it and it’s like, it’s by God’s grace. I’m not here in this place for myself.”

 

 

 

 

Didn't know he was friends with my man, Dansby either.
