Re: ESPN Say's Newton To Enter Draft

Cam still gets drafted in the top 10. Regardless of have how p*ss poor his character and leadership issues are...

Re: ESPN Say's Newton To Enter Draft

i just don't see how anyone would touch this guy top ten, or even in the first round. there are so many warning signs, both on and off he field.

all in all it seems like a pretty decent review though. cam is what he is, a high risk high reward kid, and someone could get really luck or someone will lose their job

he played in a gimmick college offense where he was running over and around people. aurburn's passing offense wasn't anything near pro style like it was when campbell was there. he wasn't asked to read the whole field. not goona lie and say i've seen a lot of his games but the ones i did see, like the championship game, i just wasn't impressed with his passing. imo newton has alex smith vince young written all over him.

All other issues aside, I'm often left to wonder why this always seems to find a way into the discussion when comparing QB's in, or about to enter the NFL.

I long for the day to come when it will no longer be an "issue"

The suggeston you make is one I'm sure is shared by many, not just members of this site. It's a universal concern that deserves a final resting place but, somehow manages to continue to raise it's ugly head.

Re: ESPN Say's Newton To Enter Draft

Black athletes can play QB at high levels. I'd take Josh Freeman in a heartbeat. I understand only 1 has won a superbowl and honestly I can't explain it but it's getting old talking about this.

Re: ESPN Say's Newton To Enter Draft

it's an easy excuse to say "attacks" on Cam are racially based...but that doesn't explain when someone says "does he have the demeanor and work ethic to avoid being the next Ryan Leaf?"

Tell it to Warren Moon and any others who share his views. I'm not the message.
