  1. I don't think any intelligent fan or NFL talent evaluator is "fixated" only on 40 times in the evaluation of receivers. That being said, everything else being equal, a wide-out who runs a 4.40 40 yard dash is almost certainly going to be a better player than a wide-out who runs a 4.55 40 yard dash. But the shuttle run and 3 cone are also important drills to determine real, usable "football speed". Track speed does not necessarily translate into football speed. The bottom line is that 40 times are simply a piece of the puzzle.
  2. Don't forget about Wilson's 98.6 or Foles 94.2 or Kaepernick's 90.6 or Griffin's 90.6 or Bridgewater's 85.2 or Austin Davis' 85.1 all QB's with less experience than Newton and better/equal passing numbers. As far as Newton is concerned, I maintain what I have been saying about him for the last 2 1/2 seasons. He is a mediocre passer with good mobility. I stand by that assessment. I realize 3 1000 yard receivers and a top 10 rushing attack are not good enough weapons for Cam to put up big numbers---that's what the Panthers had in 2013...Cam just needed MORE "weapons" in order to finish
  3. Sorry, dude. I have been waiting 30 minutes for you to pull my cap gun out of your ass. I guess it must be stuck somewhere up there. Later.
  4. Since you seem stifled, read this brief article. There are many more like it. http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/page/hotread141217/nfl-statistics-quarterbacks-devalued-era-favoring-offenses Did you know that of the top 50 completion percentage seasons of all -time, fully 37 of them have come in the 2000's? Golly, I had no idea Chad Pennington was better than Joe Namath !!!
  5. I am fully aware of the changes in the NFL game which have essentially made statistical comparisons of quarterbacks who played even 6 or 7 years ago completely irrelevant to those of today's players. Ironically those same stats are what Camophiles hide behind in order to "prove" Newton's worth relative to the all time greats.. When Roger Staubach retired in 1979, his career passer rating of 83.4 was the best of all time. An 83.4 last season would have placed Staubach between Andy Dalton and Cam Newton at 27th in the NFL. Here is the reality: the statistics of today's players can
  6. Are you sure you want to go there? Over his last 4 starts in 2014, while playing against the 14th, 31st, 23rd and 32nd best defenses in the NFL, Newton completed 58.3% of his passes for 183 yards per game and a 87.4 passer rating while suffering only 6 sacks. Extrapolated to a full season, that would put him at 29th in completion percentage, 20th in passer rating, and 32nd in yards per game. Meanwhile, over the last 4 games of the season, the Carolina defense gave up an average of 10.75 points per game. Extrapolated to a full season, that would be number one in the NFL by
  7. Miami offense vs. Carolina offense, a breakdown: Pass Blocking QB Sacks + hits Mia 144 Car 109 Significant edge, Panthers Run production from non-QB's: Mia 343 for 1561 4.6 avg Car 370 for 1497 4.0 avg Slight edge Mia # 1 Wide out: Mia Wallace: 67 catches 862 yards 12.9 avg (traded by Dolphins for a 5th round draft pick) Car Benjamin 73 catches 1008 yards 13.8 avg (would you trade Benjamin for a 5th? Me neither.) Big edge, Carolina Tight End Mia Clay + Hartline combined: 98 catches for 1079 yards 11.0 avg Car Olsen by himself: 84 catches 1008 yards 12.0 avg Huge
  8. The interesting thing is to look at Tannehill's numbers last season with a terrible roster... and compare them, not with Newton's horrible numbers last season, but with Newton's "magic" rookie season when he played with an absolutely loaded offensive roster (Smith, Lafell, Olsen, Shockey and two running backs who averaged 5.4 yards a carry)... Tannehill was better. And if you look around at what the talking heads are saying, almost every unbiased observer is saying that Tannehill is better. Now.
  9. In 2013 we had 3 receivers who went for 1000 yards last year: Smith as the true number 1 for a very good Ravens team, LaFell as a hybrid 1/2 for the Super Bowl champion Patriots and Pro Bowl caliber tight end Greg Olsen. Throw speedster Ted Ginn into that mix and we had a damn good receiving corps in 2013.(Yes, yes, I know: Lafell was not good enough to make any NFL roster outside of Carolina, period, much less as a number 2 wideout. But I am sure JO JO would let some of you guys kiss his Super Bowl ring if you asked nicely). That 2013 team also had a productive DeAngelo Williams, Pro
  10. Actually, Harrison said: " It is time for the Carolina Panthers to switch quarterbacks". That was the quote.
  11. Newton is a disaster under pressure...he had at least 5 seconds to throw the ball,,,baloney
  12. Another great GIF opportunity...right into the officials back
