    Go Panters? Whats a Panter?

    Cam is a physical specimen loaded with natural abilities and an extremely good competitive attitude. He makes mistakes in his offensive reads and sometimes fails to put the right touch on some throws, but not often. His ad lib passing skills are not yet up to par. He executes called plays very quickly and effectively, and he can thread the needle when necessary as good as any QB on the league.

    His wonderlic score was not level at 21, proving he is capable of learning and improving at the position - Jim Kelly and Dan Marino had lower scores. He is bigger than Tebow, quicker, just as tough on the run, but has a much better arm.

    Baring major injury, Cam will have a long and successful NFL career of at least 10 years, maybe longer. He has played consistently better than Vince Young, Mike Vick, JaMarcus Russell, Donovan McNabb, Russell Cunningham, or any other rookie running QB that I can think of. I would say he's on par with a QB like Fran Tarkington, and has better physical skills than Fran and can pick up the offensive pass progressions with a year of off season review and preparation.

    Cam has already had a better rookie year than Tarkington did. If Cam is ever paired with the kind of defense that Tark or McNabb played with - expect equal or better results.

    To say that Cam has already reached his peak and will decline rather than progress in his skills does not jive with his attitude - Cam wants to win and will do what it takes to get to the top and stay there. I was not on the Newton bandwagon at first and thought it was a big mistake for the Panthers to draft him - but it was one of the best draft picks ever - he is the real deal.

    You obviously have not a single clue about the game nor do you recognize talent.
    Suggest you repeat NFL 101.

    P.S. Visit your ophthalmologist for a new refraction. Suggest a new eye doc you are not using bifocals already.

    Cam Newton has done a great job as a 1st year player. The defense has been suspect except in a few games. Newton will be the Rookie of the Year.

    Did you catch his stats this year? He is a great QB, and all of his stats, and leadership carry weight with us that played and coached this great game. He's going to be the Rookie of the Year. Do you think that will keep him hanging until 2015? He's going to be a Pro Bowler one day.

    Cam Newton has no comparison with Vick. He's a lot bigger for one thing....and can certainly run, but similarites end there. He's being used more in the passing game all the time, with some running plays but next season we'll see a lot more passing and a lot less depending on the run. However, there's not ONE team in the NFL looking forward to playing this team....even this year. Just think about next season when he's got a year under his belt and has Gettis back to help out on receiving. If you don't like the guy...you can dial up multiple reasons why ahe won't be around. But, so far, not one iota of talking heads predictions have come true, so I doubt someone who like the rest of us just guesses what might happen states his opinion.

    Hey, Hokie, he should get "sharpest dressed of the year" too. Man was styling in that post game presser. I'm predicting a GQ cover in less than a year!

  • cherokeetomahawk Jan 3, 2012

    Every time I see a blog concerning "the Cam", one thing is obvious. If you say anything against him, you are given the title "hater."

    Some of you guys should learn that negative statements doesn't always translate the "hate" syndrome you attest. After all, we still live in America and are guaranteed the right to speak, (I know this irks some of you) even though you may disagree.

    Most people remember when Cam received "The Heisman", his dad was advised to remain outside the room. What a glaring example of honesty and truthfulness concerning Cam and his dad who aided in spawning him into life.

    Also, I think his grand larceny charge (later dismissed) in Florida doesn't exactly place Cam as a poster boy for "doing things the right way."

    I hope the "camber gear" has learned from his mistakes. However, I'll have to admit he would be welcomed in any of my stores, provided my security people could watch every move he makes.

    So we live in America where you have the right to free speech, but you are no longer innocent until proven guilty. Never convicted or even tried for the larceny charge and all investigations found that Cam had nothing to do with his father's actions. So you judge and condem somebody when nothing has been proven against them. You use America, freedom of speech, but you don't use America, innocent until proven guilty. I guess that part of this country doesn't fit your needs. Yeah, its clear to see in your statements that it is hate and it is clear that you are very hypocritical. So if you are not convicted of something you are guilty and if somebody in your family does something wrong, you are guilty. Yeah, you really make Americans proud. So, next time why don't you drop all the it isn't hate bs and your rights in America and just be honest. You sure don't believe in those rights, only ones that benefit you and you judge and condem people without knowing the facts, even though they might be innocent. Yep, we need more Americans like you.

    Cam has the talent, but if the Panthers lose Chud, he may begin to look a lot more average. But to say he will be out in 3 years is just stupid. The only way he is out in 3 years would be with a career ending injury. Also, I wish you would change your nickname, you could not have gone to Duke and be that stupid. Newton has an entirely different skill set than any of the other quarterbacks you listed.

    Just went back to check on the Panthers. Cam will be the top ticket down there. He isn't going anywhere. His millions will be increased. If they get a D they will win.

    Cam will be the franchise player after next season. He will haul down some of JD's money.

    I was not a Cam fan at the beginning of the season, but after watching him, I am now. What he did for the Panthers is remarkable. Will some teams figure him out? Probably. WIll he have a "sophomore slump"? Maybe. But I will tell you that I had more fun watching the Panthers this year than I have in the last few years.

    Luckily, it looks like the Panthers dodged a major bullet with all the NFL teams looking for head coaches and Chud interviewing for a few of them. Looks like Chud will be back!

    Why all the hate on CAM? I dont understand. He had the best rookie year in history, but Panther fans still dont want him! Forget about what happened in college if thats the reason. Its over. Maybe its the little superman thing he does in the end zone? What else is there?

  • VT1994Hokie Mar 21, 2012

    I see Cam coming back and win some games down there this up-coming season. He will probably make All-Pro too.

    Go Cam wish you all the best. You are a heck of a athlete! Leave the past in the past. I'm a steelers fan, and Ben got two chances. Like Cam Ben was never convicted. Although I think something went on in Ben's case! If Cam didnt have all the baggage coming out of college panthers fans still would find something negative to say!

    With his money, why would he even want to shop in one of your stores. He can probably afford to buy and sell you and yours twice over and never miss a beat. He is not responsible for his father's actions and the larceny charge was dismissed because maybe he wasn't guilty. Your comments are being filed in the "dumb room" filing area.

    Go Cam, go Panthers! Notice he mentioned all BLACK QB's!! WOW!! Doesnt Manning, Brady, Rivers, Doug Williams, rely on there natural abilities? Of course they do, because they cant run. They are pocket passers so they rely on a great offensive line throughout there careers. Ben, Cam, Vick, Mcnabb are athletes. They can extend a play. Thats called natural talent that some dont have. Hater isnt the word!! Go Cam!!!

    ^Who needs to run when you have the capability to stand in the pocket, read opposing D's & pick 'em apart like the Mannings & Bradys of the world. Besides, there is a reason you have RBs & WRs/TEs.

    Manning, Brady, & Williams - 5 SBs between 'em

    The athletes - 2 SBs & BR has both of 'em.

    I was yelling at the TV Go for it!!!!!! If you want to set the tone(FAIL OR FIRST DOWN) you go for it.

    How much are you paying for Cam, Deangelo, Steve Smith, Kalil the center anyway? Its time to turn the corner. 1 yard for the win, and you have all that talent.

    You do NOT give Matt Ryan 1:47 seconds, either at the 45 or 1 yard line.

    Cam is showing signs of a weak leader. Could we have another Kerry Collins??
