    I would start him from day one. Rams did that with Bradford, Ravens with Flacco and the Falcons with Ryan. Steelers almost from day one with Roelisberger.

    If they think enough to of a guy to draft him that high then play him right away.

    then leave now... if you're going to "unfan" a team that easily due to a certain draft pick, you're not a fan to begin with

    as for newton... i myself wouldn't touch him with a ten and a half feet pole... but if we draft him (which i hope we don't), I'll disagree, but support it and hope for the very best...
    who knows.. he may be our next mcnair.... we never know... but he has a very long way to go...

    FYI to those half baked fans. The Titans are 15th in tv ratings among all NFL teams. 2X the ratings of the Texans. Bigger ratings than the Ravens or Packers this decade.

    Some fans seem to think they are doing the team a favor pretending to be fans like we desperately need you or something. We don't!

    We sell out our stadium even in lean years and people want to watch our team. Maybe even more so now with a new coach.

    We don't need you.

    Jamarcus Russell vs Cam Newton..

    Rushing yardage..

    Russell 3 seasons LSU 79 yards..

    Newton one year Auburn 1400 yards..


    Gosh maybe something is different there. Duhhhhhhh..

    Newton's passing rating was 182 this year. Come up with a QB who had a better passing rating than that.

    People are comparing him to Jamarcus Russell for the sure-fire bust that he'll be... not actual numbers/style.

    Dude... he played at the end of the season when nothing mattered against terrible teams.

    Had he started all season he wouldn't have cracked a 75qb rating... you can bank on that.

    Why is everyone clamoring over a workout by a guy who has a strong arm going up against air? He won the Heisman trophy for Christ's sake, he should look good in shorts and no defensive pressure.

    A ball didn't hit the ground, awesome. You mean he can get the ball within reach of a receiver when the QB isn't being rushed and the WR doesn't have to worry about getting hit? AWESOME!

    The workout is being overhyped. He just further reinforced his strengths, and he didn't answer his weaknesses. He doesn't always keep a good lower base, which affects his short accuracy. His biggest problem is anticipation. If he fails in the NFL, that will be the reason why, I guarantee it. He doesn't anticipate his WRs getting open. He waits until they are clear, then uses his strong arm to fit it in. Unfortunately, with zone blitzes, hidden coverages, etc., he will struggle unless he learns to anticipate.

    I'd rather trade for Josh Johnson than draft Cam Newton
