Re: ESPN Say's Newton To Enter Draft

Newton is a winner. Also, he is fully participating in the combine showing his competitive spirit. This guy is going to be a franchise QB within a few years. we will kick ourselves if he is there at 10 and we pass.

Agreed........... He's a winner. J Russel was / is lazy. I hate when they compare the two. This guy has Tebows mentality.

Re: ESPN Say's Newton To Enter Draft

Sorry guys, but this guy just told the press he is an icon and you know what that means. Unless this guy is the Lebron James of Qbing, he is doomed to fail,as this is the kindof guy the press, etc love to see take a fall. I think we need to pass on this guy, and not just for the showboating reason. We don't have the weapons for this guy to utilize yet. He might pan out to be a very good QB, but only on a team that has players of decent quality around him. By the time we do that, he might get banged up or just plain tired of DC. I still say we stick to a solid rebuilding the lines plan with the emphasis still on the O line.

Well he's young man but I agree with you, stay away from Cam IMO.

Re: ESPN Say's Newton To Enter Draft

Hearing him calling himself an entertainer and an icon makes me very nervous about the prospect of drafting him. When he says that I'm reminded of Charles Rogers Lamborghini Living. Sure it's great that he's going to work out at the combine, but between his "father's" pay to play scheme and wowing media types at a preview of his workout. Well safe to say I feel like he's exponentially more concerned with his payday then he is having a successful career. Or put another way, I feel like his combine and media workout isn't a competitive thing/being the best player he can be type thing but rather a "if I do this I can increase my draft stock enough to get a big pay day" type motive.

I know I've been supportive of him but I can't stop picturing him having a Vegas post-draft party a la Ryan Leaf after these comments.

Jason Reid - Given the Redskins' needs, drafting a quarterback would be indefensible

Re: ESPN Say's Newton To Enter Draft

To take a guy 1st overall, who's played one year in a non pro style offense, that was in shotgun 99% of the time, who's favorite play was to just run the ball up the middle is just ridiculous.

It is concerning and may not be a deal breaker, but these things are RED FLAGS in my mind....

Re: ESPN Say's Newton To Enter Draft

Definitely red flags.

You want your QB to be confident but this kid is sounding flat out cocky. I don't like it.

The 2011 QB class: They all have flaws but at least one is likely to be selected in the top ten. One or two more will probably be chosen later in the round. There is a slight possibility that all could be passed in round one while teams fill other needs.

jmo\ but, I don't think there is a QB in the 2011 draft worthy of a top ten selection.

This guy sounds awfully full of himself for only playing one season of college ball. Let someone else reach for this guy. I hope we don't.

Re: ESPN Say's Newton To Enter Draft

Sure the opening quote of that article isn't good & does scare me, the other quotes he made were astute & pretty mature. I won't read too much into it unless he continues to talk like that or worse.
