Newton is a stud but these guys need to lay off the media training. The fake just oozes out of his pores. He sounds like a car salesman.

I'm putting the early odds on Jacquizz Rodgers to have an exceptionally low Wonderlic score. He didn't sound too swift in an interview I heard the other day.

The Orangemen are just a rock-solid, consistent winner that hasn't suffered a losing season since 1968-69.

I wonder how fast Julio would have run the 40 had he not been running on a broken foot?

That whacky offense did a poor job of prepping Cam for NFL

For those that questioned why Pryor passed on UM and Oregon, that is why.

Does that broken foot hurt or help Rams chances of getting him at 14 or w/e it is.

I disagree a lil bit on non trad o hurting guys.. hell pats got to be 70/30 from shotgun... the herd said today this season was the first year in league history more plays run from gun then under center..

would be fitting for cam to end up on bengals with all those other high charactor guys...

cant way to see what PP runs at combine tommorow.. talk of mid to low 4.2's possible

Enjoyed this Nawrocki excerpt on Newton:

Under "negatives" for Newton, Nawrocki writes, "Very disingenuous — has a fake smile, comes off as very scripted and has a selfish, me-first makeup. Always knows where the cameras are and plays to them. Has an enormous ego with a sense of entitlement that continually invites trouble and makes him believe he is above the law — does not command respect from teammates and will always struggle to win a locker room . . . Lacks accountability, focus and trustworthiness — is not punctual, seeks shortcuts and sets a bad example. Immature and has had issues with authority. Not dependable."


Haven't been following much, has his stock dropped?

I basically agree with this. If a guy has the physical and mental aptitude to be an NFL QB, he can learn to play in a pro-style offense regardless of what he ran in college (there's a reason every college in the country, including those that ran pro-style offenses, wanted Tebow). There are plenty of reasons to be wary of Cam Newton, but I don't really think that's one of them. That being said, I'm speaking long-term here--if a team needs a QB who can come in and win right away they need to go with a pro-style guy. The guys who play in the spread in college will need more time to develop, but a team who has a couple years to develop their guy has no reason to fear a guy who isn't coming from a pro system. I've said all along Tebow will be a very good NFL QB.

Because that's the #1 thing teams will be looking at when they evaluate him.

it certainly doesn't help his cause

I think Mallet turns out to be similar to Chad Henne. I wouldn't want to take a QB in this draft. Considering you can't even give the guy a playbook.

Mallet will be better than all of them. Trust me.


I'll pass on every spread QB until one of them does anything in the NFL.

Nope. Some option stuff, but it was a "pro-style" offense*. Knock on him was that he wasn't a west coast offense guy because of his accuracy....which was 100% correct.

*pro-style = run up the middle twice then let McNabb pull a horseshoe out of his ass on 3rd down to move the chains, right Mr. X?
