If not for the VY drama, would your opinion on Cam Newton be different?

    Running is the problem because our QB's stay hurt. Leave the running between the tackles to the running backs. On the rare occasion I'm good with pulling it down and running, but not to a scheme. Or last 2 QB's have been perpetually hurt because of it.

    I don't disagree with the last statement though; had VY put in the time he might have been more effective.

    Newton takes 1 sack for every 12 attempts. Gabbert takes 1 every 21. Locker takes 1 every 18. Mallett takes 1 every 16. Thought it was interesting. Side note, Newton's rate is similar to Roethlisberger's.

    I agree with what you're trying to say. Big difference between a running QB and a mobile QB. Our last SuperBowl QB's were both mobile.

    Well of course not that, but he could simply not speak up about him if those were his feelings. But he did come out and state his opinion on Cam.

    lmmfao he actually said "I told him I was going to take my talents to Auburn"... Great. That's all we need, a Lebron fan.

    He'll probably be just as much a douche.

    So who is Mcnair? Another black guy? The 2 best QBs in the history of this franchise are black! That's enough for me Cam sucks!

    Here is a little news flash for ya. Cam Newton and Vince Young are not the same person! They are individual human beings! Why would the weaknesses or faults of one automatically be asociated with the other? If Vince commits a crime do we make Cam Newton do the time?

    And why does nobody want to compare Newton to Mcnair a man with character flaws of his own but also a great player. A revered player here!

    Moon is BY FAR the best QB in franchise history. He's also the last true pocket passer we've had at the helm. Coincidence?... I'm tired of "mobile/running" QB's leading this franchise I want a pocket passer now.
