The "Cameron Newton" bandwagon starts here!!!

 

 

I like to consider myself open minded about decision making and when I was asked recently by a non-Panther fan as to who Carolina should draft, I quickly said Andrew Luck.  Why I bought into the hype with what everyone else was saying and what ESPN was putting out about him.  I even went as far as to pull up highlights of Andrew Luck on you tube.  Basically I wanted to see what everyone else was raving about, and I definitely liked what I seen.

 

I heard about Cam Newton and seen a few highlights and footage of him on TV, but “oh well” I thought… another scrambling quarterback.  Later I went see who would be great insurance (QB prospects) should Jimmy Clausen not get it done for the rest of the year, and two names continued to arise Andrew Luck and Cam Newton.  So on a recent BLOG I listed him down at #2… Wrong!!! I was soooooooooooo wrong, and I’ll be the first to say it.

 

Studying their measurables, watching footage, and reading stats (dare I say it on this website) but Cam Newton projects head and shoulders above Andrew Luck.  I know that you’re probably boiling over in your seat as you read this, but so was I when I read it.  I was mad because I felt that I was lied to about Andrew Luck.

 

Viewing game footage on Luck he’s cool as a cucumber out there, but a closer look shows you that his offensive line is a beast… the guy has only been sacked 5 times all season… sounds like Brady years back.  His passer rating how he’s so precise but looking closer you find that he’s been playing against average at best opponents with the exception of Oregon… which he lost that game (oooh I’m sorry… not him but the  defense did).   This guy is a great QB don’t get me wrong but when you view the stats… it will alarm you.

 

Cameron Newton on the other hand (not saying that he’s better, just saying on the other hand… Geez).  Cam has shown through his tough schedule all year long that he can get it done.  Accounting for 78% of the teams offense with zero fumbles, less interceptions, and overall poise to get it done.  Carolina is at the bottom of the NFL when it comes to offensive stats… this guy would be a tremendous addition.  I have heard people saying that we should have gotten Michael Vick and look at what Vick is doing now, Cameron Newton is the new Vick.  Clausen has fumbled continuously all season.  This guy has carried the football for 1409 yards 20tds with no fumbles… 

 

I think I said enough read the stats… bring up character issues if you want, and say that stats don’t tell the truth about a player.  People say that when they nothing else to say.  I was all for Luck as well but NOW THAT I KNOW THE TRUTH… I’m starting the CAM Newton BANDWAGON!!!
