Okay let me say I'm a big no a huge fan of Cam Newton and I see too many people wanting to hating on him so if you don't like The ICON don't comment this is a Cam Newton lovefest fanpost. Here I go and I'm going to show my brass balls on this one Cam Newton had a total year QB rating at 182 Andrew Luck 170.2 he was better, quarterback efficiency he was better can't find the stats but I know I remember reading that, against Oregon Andrew Luck 341 total yards 2 tds 2 ints 63 % and a 130 qb rating in a loss but The Icon 329 total yards 2 tds 1 int 58 % and a 137.82 qb rating in a championship win while having back spasms he was better, last comparison which really isn't a comparison thier conference competion Newtons was alot better his conference including him has won the last five National Championships so if people liked Andrew Luck I can't understand why they are not in love with Cam the dude is better.
The Icon had a 73.5 completion percentage against the blitz in conference games thats almost 3/4's of the time getting the WR, RB,, or TE the ball agianst the blitz wow you can't do that against the most talented defences in college without knowing how to read the defenders pre-snap. And by the way Gabberts stats in this category is 44.8 The Icon is 28.7 points higher than him. I love making CAMperisions people say the knock on the Icon is character issues yeah he is cocky, yeah he thinks he can beat anyone, yeah he is just like Brett Favre who was the same, Tom Brady cocky got that fine woman pretty hair thinks he is better than any QB, Peyton Manning cocky got all those TV spots wants to be the greatess, Arron Rodgers really cocky always doing that championship waist move, Drew Brees cocky who dat thinks he is a drill sergent before games, Phillip Rivers do I need to say it cocky, Big Ben cocky, Mike Vick cocky, Matty Ice a sly cocky, lets goe back and look at the greats of all time John Elway cocky he didn't like the colts was going to play baseball, Joe Montana cocky thought he was the greatess as he played hard not to everyone was comparing him with Micheal Jordan ( also cocky ) as meaning no one can be better, Dan Marino cocky real cocky the first LeBron James ( yeah I know I'm getting carryed away with the basketball metaphors ), hey for fun lets goe back a long way to the near beginning of the NFL Bart Starr class act but cocky no team could even try to be close to as good as his team was he loved Green Bay and you couldn't tell him different, Joe Namath I guarantee lol he was cocky, Johnny Unitas cocky the guy had a right developed most of what we know as pass plays my point is you have to believe not just believe but the greats convince themselfs no one is better and that is what Cam Newton was trying to do when he said he was a Icon which personally I love I hope it catches on cool nickname for him and fun to say if you understand it the right way.
Is he a leader hell yeah not even a question won back to back Championships talent can get you a ring in junior college by yourself but not in the Big NCAA you have to lead your boys and he did brillantly amist problems I won't get into cuz this is a HOMER FANPOST. Pocket Presence better than what people give him credit for has a 67.6 completion percentage. We have to draft this guy he is perfect for our team we won't have a chance for Luck next year from what I been reading not to many possible franchise QB's other than Luck in the next few years coming out and free agency come on yeah thier is some half-beat guys out there but no one we can bring in to win us the superbowl NEXT year so Cam will have time to develop if us the Carolina fanbase doesn't hackle him with presure. Back to him being great for us I read a post awhile back on this site when we first hired our coaching staff stating we are going to a coryell system this if I'm correct this is a pre-read on the wideout, passe's to RB's, and a good TE to use well this is virutally how Auburn ran thier system quick read to the wideout if not open dump the ball to the TE or RB if not run which he is great at. Like it or not the spread is making it's way to the NFL collage recuits for that and the NFL drafts those players. New rules are helping with the transition Sam Bratford was a spread guy too.
Cam Newton also has Warren Moon backing him and there is no telling what Mr Moon could have done if he would have had his whole career in the NFL Moon see's himself in this guy and he knows what Cam is. Jarmarcus Russell was lazy, fat, and only cared about the money he got so I know haters are going to read this and say he is this guy and your racist if your white and dumb if your black no comparising Cam is ripped his coach's brag on his work ethic. He has great leadership skills and boosts to much to be a failure. My last point which is to the Big Cat and my headline Mr Richardson has been very brass in this CBA he has to be he represents a great deal for all the owners but in doing so he may have shyed players from wanting to play with us we know this because even our own Charles Johnson had unkind words about the Big Cat. Drafting Cam Newton I believe could change players stance on that Jermany Shockey had good things to say about him so drafting Cam is in Big Cats best interest to get players back on his side. Ticket sales, adding new fans, and seperating Carolina from the field is a huge plus businness wise. When we hired a minority coach we added new fans and a great hire I believe it was Tom Flores was the last latino coach and he was good no great he got people to play for him and Rivera shares this same traits. Drafting Cam would add to this so if we as the fanbase cry out to Carolina we can make this happin we have the power we just got to get it out there so if your down with Cameron Newton rec this post so all American's can see and so we can finally get our Franchise Quarterback!
