I think, and I suspect NC Skins would say the same, Cam has been absolutely outstanding through his first six (or is it seven?) games. But we've seen many players, at different positions across all sports, get off to hot starts only to fade. So to say let's see how it plays out over a bit of a longer sample size is not hate. Not at all.

I'm going to hire SS as my agent. In the immortal words, a great mod once said...."Preach".

That was the point of the Zorn example. The first part of the season, he was new and there was no game film on his offense. Remember that Zorn for NFL coach of year and Portis for MVP talk at the half? The second half (and following season) the defenses had caught up with him and stuffed anything he put on the field. EVEN THE ELUSIVE SWINGING GATE!(following year)


Kid has been outstanding this year as a rookie, and even more impressive because it's at the QB position. He made all the throws he needed to yesterday and ran when he had to. I'm not going to sit here and say......."Well, Smitty is the reason.......or Haslett didn't do this or that on the defensive scheme". A bunch of bullshit woulda/coulda scenarios there. In the end he tore us a new asshole.

Lots of stuff NC Skins and I don't agree on off-the-field, but on-the-field we agree far more often than not and certainly on this issue. Let's not annoint Cam yet, he hasn't played half a season. Has he exceeded my expectations for him in the passing game, so far certainly.

Without a full rehash of where I stand, just do a search on my user name and Cam Newton. That'll give you all the facts you should need.

Really? That's a bit of a stretch, especially after he just said he would like to eat crow on Cam because NC is his home state.

Edit: I see the brigade has come to NC's rescue.

Agreed. He's completely changed my opinion about him in just a few short weeks. I thought him and his dad were in on it the entire way with the pay for play scheme. But he's said and done all the right things in his short time in the NFL so far. And he actually comes across as genuine, unlike Michael Vick since he got out of prison.

Re: Mad props to Cam Newton

Cam is a class guy, the way he dress and speak, and without the tatoos, yes he will have a great future.

I don't understand the hype about tattoos. Having a tattoo doesn't make him a bad person. I understand there's kind of a double standard, we all think Pryor is a pos for trading memorabilia for tattoos (but that's different, I see Pryor as a young punk simply because he acted like he was above the law at Ohio State), but even if Cam did have tattoos it really shouldn't be that big of a deal. Tattoos don't change people, and I say this knowing I'm slightly biased because I have one of my own, with plans for more.

Ok, lets stop this shit about "Cam is a class guy". Guys with class don't cheat in school and steal laptops. Guys with class don't knowingly let their dad pimp their skills out to the highest bidder and deny ever knowing it to the NCAA and reporters.

Say what you want to about the on the field skills, but lets stop this bullshit about being a "class guy". THAT much he's already proved he's not.


Bert: Not sure where you get this idea about tattoos, but I would probably guess that many of those Wall Street guys that stole from the US citizen didn't have any tattoos. Guess that makes them "class guys" right? /facepalm The logic on some people.

Adversity reveals character, on that note I am leaving this thread. The vitriol from my fellow tarheel is beyond football.

I'm not the one up here calling a guy who's been caught cheating, stealing, lying, and breaking rules a "Class Guy". Vitriol? I'm sorry you don't like hearing the truth, but what you are in fact trying to do is polish a turd. Don't confuse the guys skills with his off-field issues, which was heavily criticized during the draft period for a reason.

If you want to say he's the real deal? Fine. At least the games can back that up so far. Just don't say he's a class act when in fact his history has proven the exact opposite so far.

Re: Mad props to Cam Newton

I would argue that he played his best game against the Skins. He was mistake free, and surprisingly made great throws to very small windows, not to mention the damage he does with his legs. In the first quarter, he converted a 3rd and 13 deep out to Steve Smith against very good coverage, and at that point, I had a feeling that we were in for a long day.
