A lot of times on message boards and sports talk, everytime I come out in favor of Cam Newton, it seems like all his critics say the same thing. "Oh hes another Jamarcus Russell in the making, we need Fairley" Look I love my Panthers through and through but they have been stagnate the last several years. We need a shock and awe game changing pick for this number 1 overall pick. We need a QB that draws in new fans, has fresh new energy and can sell jersies oh and it just so happens that this quarterback is also a heisman trophy winner, lead his team undefeated and won a BCS championship/
Sure Jamarcus Russell was hyped and failed, but why not also say he could be a Vick, Mcnabb or Vince Young?, all good quarterbacks all with major hype.
So what if Newton is use to a spread offense. Maybe its time for Panthers to change their playing style?! Because again, how many super bowls have we won again going with the "strong defense, running game offense" play style? thats right 0. Im hoping with Rivera and the new staff and if Newton completly blows it away at the combine that the panthers will finally lossen up the purse strings and get their Michael Vick.
