WHY CAM WILL BE OUT OF FOOTBALL BY 2015
dukeblue82 Oct 19, 11:02 a.m.
Cam Newton has had an excellent start to the season. He is relying on his natural skills to put his team in the best position to win (they're not winning). Anyone who watches Pro Football on a regualr basis knows that it's only a matter of time before NFL defenses catch up with Cam. You could see it Sunday against Atlanta. He got by at Auburn by being a better athlete than everyone else. He won't be able to do that in the NFL for long. I see him having a good year this year. Next year, the rest of the league will catch up and he will probably be out of football in 4 years. Look at the history of the league and QB's like Newton. Vick, McNabb, Vince Young, JAMARCUS RUSSELL (ok he won't be that bad) but without a great coaching staff (sorry Rivera) he won't have a good career. Sorry Panther fans.

The panthers would be 5-1, 4-2 if they had any defence at all. No quarterback in the history of the NFL has done what he has done so far. So I'm going to have to disagree in the extreme.

Not a Panther fan, but why the hate on Cam?

towel boy, shame on you, it is SO EVIDENT that you HOPE he isn't playing in 2015, ROFLMAO!!!!

1-5 Panther fans trip me out with their optimism. Don't worry, you will get another top 5 pick this year to help you improve.

I know very well that we have lots of holes to fill, but saying Cam will be out of football by 2015 is a little ridiculous at the moment. The sky is the limit for that kid. But, I will gladly take another top 5 pick to get another piece of the puzzle filled.

True that 22. We may need a replacement for Steve Smith and we need defensive help. Our O line is banged up. This kid is the real deal, his desire to stay in the pocket at just about all costs has sold me and he goes through his progressions. He just needs to get more accurate and up to NFL speed but he is most likely rookie of the year. Young came with alot of mental baggage and I laughed when the Raiders took Russell. Newton has proven he was worth the pick on the field, plus the guys love him. He is also 6-" taller than Vick, just a minor point yunno.
Did you notice the stadium was full? It did not take long for the guys bailing on those PSLs to pull them back and buy tickets. There is alot of excitement around the Panthers. I say he wins a Superbowl before he turns 29, IMHTHO.

I am not arguing that he is good this year. He is. He is a great athlete. Do you honestly think that he could play as well as he is playing now next year, against defenses like the Ravens, Steelers, or Niners? These defensive coordinators live to slow down kids like him. I understand Panther fans are excited. They should be. Let me ask you this. Whould you want Cam Newton for Andrew Luck for the next 13 years? Who, with the right situation, is going to win more Superbowls? If you say Cam, good luck with that. I don't think Cam will ever win a Superbowl, let alone multiple Superbowls. I'm telling you, just look at the history of the game. He is Vince Young all over again. He had a good rookie year too.

The difference between Cam and Vince is upstairs. It takes a mentally tough athlete to play the QB position. Cam is tough as nails. The progression I have seen from him (mind you, with 0 off-season help) from last year, to the preseason, to now is incredible. He gets it. He will only get better in my mind because he is not a head case like Vince.
