    Analyze: Cam Newton

    First post/thread, whatever you wanna call it, so don't kill me......But I want to know what other people's thoughts are on Cam Newton....Is this merely a sophmore slump? Or was last year a miracle, and it's only gonna get worse?

    *Personally, I beleive that A) Cam does have some growing up to do. B) Ron Rivera is lost in the sauce and C) The panthers defense is abismal.....However, I honestly beleive that with a new head coach, and some added peices on offense (WIDE RECEIVERS), Cam will regain his thunder and in a couple years be considered an elite QB. He has all the potential in the world. From a cannon for an arm, RGIII-esque scrambling ability, and a 6'6'' stature.

    What are your guys' honest opinions on the future of Mr. Cam Newton?

    Cam has a lot of talent, but lacks the mentality it takes to be a good Qb in this league. He's all about flash and not about brains. He's not smart enough to be an elite Qb

However, currently I am helping train with Derek Carr from Fresno State get ready for his pro day and the draft. I am also working with Cody Kessler, the USC quarterback.

    I have never thought of Cam as a QB that is anything more than a gimmick. He will put fans in seats much like Vick, but he is not a QB you build a franchise around. Look at his W-L record. There are QB's who have less than Cam offensively and defensively that have a better record than Cam. Cam preys on the weak teams and gets beat up by the top tier teams. Grab him in fantasy, but in real football I would rather have 20 other Qbs

    Huh how does win loss make you an elite qb? Eli won the superbowl with a barely 500 team. josh Freeman had a bad year last year and the team got talent around him with a rookie running back who is playing lights out and a stud wr in Vincent Jackson and a great te also. A qb is only as good as the talent around him.

    He DOESN'T play from behind. The Panthers are almost always in the lead in the 4th quarter or not far behind. They don't get the luxury of garbage time stats because they're always within a TD of a win. There've only been TWO games this season that didn't finish within 8 points (regardless of if Carolina won or lost).

    So if he goes into the 4th why is he losing? If you say defense I will ignore you. Having a lead going into the 4th gives most QB's a pretty big edge. Can he not compete in the 4th? Why is he always losing these games? Sounds to me like the defense struggles and so does the O.

    Define "really good".

    Are you saying that he will be a top ten Qb...or better?

    I don't know if I can ever seem him becoming an elite Qb or anything like that.

    Well, for example i'd take him over RGIII long term. And I liked RGIII better than Luck coming out. But after seeing his playing style...he's going to get killed if he keeps it up.

    If Newton was in a 1 read and run offense he'd look much better statwise. Instead he throws deep more often than most QBs in the NFL.

    (RG3)He takes maybe 5-10 hits a game. He is built to take those hits. His one concussion came off an illegal hit. Cam struggles with touch passes, it has been that way since he played college. Big arm, great athlete, 2 cent mind.

    He will never be a top 10qb. He lacks that thing good qbs have......talent. He has a mid-level arm and relies on athletic ability. That is an equation I have seen too many times.....Kordell, VY, Vick, etc.
