Cam will have to learn how to read defensives. He has to be quick enough to check down. He just does not have that going for him. Lastly, he must be QB smart. I see talent in him to escape the pressure, but that's not playing the position.

I like the sleeper in Andy Dalton. Please, no more Auburn QBs.
I've been high on Dalton for a while, guy is a winner and very underrated arm

Newton seems like another VY to me

I agree with that but I think VY is almost worse. Cam just seems flashy to me. VY is almost skitzo with multiple personalities or bipolar or something.

I think he's definitely a burrito short of a taco stand, if you catch my drift.

I hear you,but the potential upside for Kolb is a lot different then Mcnabb,so much so i dont think the Eagles would do it.As far as Vince goes,i know he's a head case,but whos to say he cant mature like Vick.But knowing vince,he probably thinks he needs to be the starter somewhere and want a lot of money and wont settle for a backup role

Re: IF We Take A QB At #10...Who Do You Want?

It's pretty doubtful that Newton is a good fit for Kyle's system. Many of us (and analysts) are hung up on what Mike's QBs have looked for but Kyle is calling the plays. Based on some of the McNabb issues, it doesn't seem like Kyle is much for an improvisational QB or one whose strengths are creating their own plays outside the structure of the offense.

I love Newton's long term upside and even though I voted for him in this poll, the more I think of it he's not the best fit for us.

Let me make this clear: I don't want Cam Newton to be the starting quarterback for the Redskins. Not now. Not next year. Not in seven years, provided McNabb's incentive-laden contract expires. Newton is Vince Young in training: a big, rangy kid with a national championship - and more baggage than will fit in the overhead compartment. Let him be somebody else's project.

I don't really think Cam is the right choice for us, but I don't buy all these VY comparisons

One scout's summary of Mallet: "Jason Campbell talent with Jeff George attitude"

Um.....

Hey SS why would you say no to cam? I'm not disagreeing with you just want your input on him..

Would you rather have locker or Gabbert?
I'm still open for a QB via trade (Orton)

Yeah!, you'll find his quote on page two, last part of the article.

Mike Wise - Even in wide-open NFL, the Redskins need to start over

Look at the first Nebraska gm this year. Locker couldn't do anything throwing against a good defense. and Even in their bowl gm they won, but Locker throw something like 5-16. He ran for more yards than he threw.

He is below .500 for his college career, and I can't recall him ever making a gm winning drive.

He is a better leader than Clausen but not by much. And true they don't have the same style of play, but they both lose confidence fairly easily.

Time needed to sit before ready to start: 1-2 seasons.
Yeah, if we did get him I think we should keep NcNabb even with the high price tag. McNabb can help for a couple years though we probably won't win a super bowl with him (an lets face it, it would be alil shocking with the current roster if we won one in the next couple of years anyways). McNabb can teach Cam, who seems like he may be somewhat immature, how to be and handle being an NFL QB like being the first and last person in the building and how to handle all the positive and negative attention.
