Personally, I look at football in a much more philosophical manner than trying to only use stats especially when the stats are gathered from someone who said many times they they just didn't like Cam. i think football is more akin to chess as it's more about anticipating an opponents moves than simply overpowering the opponent. So first I'll refute your preconceived notion of "Scam Newton" . His brush up in Florida was possessing stolen laptop. He didn't steal it and in my mind had no idea that it was stolen. This being based on that I like Cam and that no one will ever know the truth. See how I admitted that I am basing this on opinion. Second, the pay for play scheme that his FATHER tried to implement. I'm pretty sure everyone has had a family member do questionable things or try to take advantage of a situation that there could be a monetary gain. If you look at what his teammates say about his leadership skills than pundits on nfl.com you might have a more accurate representation. I'm not sure if this is true but a friend of mine that used to work with James Dator told me that at the end of preseason of his rookie year that members of the Panthers petitioned the nfl to make Cam a captain although they had already voted at the beginning of preseason. His second year, he deferred to the veterans Gross and Smitty. James will have to confirm that in the comment section but it must be true because it supports what I already think of Cam. No he didn't make the playoffs or have a winning season in his 2 seasons, but after he failed to make the playoffs he continued training all the way through the playoffs and super bowl as if he did make it to the playoffs. I'd say that would take some leadership skills. Is he arrogant? Arrogance: Having or displaying a sense of over-bearing self worth or self-importance, marked by or arising from a feeling or assumption of one's superiority towards others. I believe if you watch some of his interviews that he stresses the importance of self-improvement and limiting his mistakes. He also gives the football to a child after every td he scores at home. I don't think that characterizes arrogance. Is he overly confident about his abilities and his need to sometimes carry the entire offense on his back? In a word yes, is he arrogant, in a word no. I guess you could say his celebrations characterize arrogance but I have to argue that every human celebrates after accomplishments. I guess you don't celebrate after your child is born, get a promotion or some other major milestone. Also, he doesn't call out his coaches or teammates for their failures. Instead he shoulders the blame by saying he needs to improve and limit his mistakes but clearly this comes from his extreme arrogance. Personally, I like to have more of a reason for disliking someone than "seems arrogant", or made a bad decision, or had a family member make a bad decision. Maybe you should have all your dirty laundry aired nationally before judging. I believe Tom Brady left his pregnant wife and all but abandoned that child and Rg3, a multimillionaire, recently had fans buy out his wedding registry and then tweeted pictures of it. I think these actions would qualify as arrogance as opposed to Cams superman celebration. You can stick with your "stats" and I'll stick with knowing I'm biased and trying my hardest to not be.
