Is A.R a smaller C.Newton in the rough?


Recommended Posts

Question...I know he has raw ability and potential much like Cam did back in the day.

Not saying that he is as talented as Cam was, but do you think he has enough raw skills to develop (with proper coaching) into a decent QB.

What you got?

That's an easy comparison for average fans. They do have a lot of similar traits. AR looks like Cam when he takes off and runs down field. Not sure about his scrambling, or leaping abilities. I don't believe his arm is as strong as Cam's was coming out. There were a lot of intangibles with Cam that made him special. Not sure you can replicate it.

The only way a running QB should be compared to Cam is if they can match his size. Anything less can't be the same kind of runner. The other running QBs in the league are already not lasting a whole season. He's the only one who could withstand the running for a long period of time.

Well you can't coach size. And as far as the running comparisons time seems to have made memories fade some. Cam Newton debuted throwing for almost a thousand yards in his first two games. He also helped Greg Olsen break some receiving records for TE's. He could sling it with the best of them in his prime. We want a QB with some mobility but we aren't going to find another Cam and we don't need that anyways because it is a passing league. Move forward with that mindset accordingly.
