Cam Newton Disses Vince Young and JaMarcus Russell
Cam Newton has had a very productive rookie season and if we’re just going by the numbers, his statistics have been phenomenal with 4,000 passing yards, 20 touchdowns. Decision-making is his achilles on and off the field and he recently proved that by dissing JaMarcus Russell and Vince Young.
Sure it would be easy to just say shut up Cam and play ball, but his most recent comments just further affirms that the young quarterback still has a lot of maturing to do. He has had the tendency to stick his foot throughout his short tenure in the NFL, and that will contribute to why he won’t probably win Rookie Of The Year or make the Pro Bowl, unless some other quarterbacks opt not to play.
His intangibles specifically his mouth are out of control. I compare his numbers this season to the 2010 Kyle Orton, which basically means, a whole lot of numbers, that don’t translate into enough victories on the field.
Let’s be honest, it is going to be very difficult for him to ever be the best quarterback in the NFC South, when he is still far behind and likely to stay far behind Drew Brees and Matt Ryan as a leader for the Carolina Panthers going forward.
Here are some of latest comments, where Cam Newton once again stuck his foot in his mouth, “I can’t sit up here and look at it like, oh man, my critics are racist. I blame JaMarcus Russell and to some degree Vince Young. If you have the opportunity to make that kind of money doing something you love to do, why would you screw it up? I’m trying to be a trailblazer. If Baylor’s Robert Griffin decides to come out, I want people to say ‘He can be the next Cam Newton’ instead of ‘He’s gonna be the next JaMarcus Russell.”
The quarterback fraternity is supposed to be sacred and I suppose I can understand criticizing JaMarcus Russell for his poor work ethic, but Vince Young has accomplished a lot more as a starter and won a lot more games in the NFL than Cam has.
Ego is a funny thing and it is pretty clear that Cam has been sipping too much ‘Cam Juice’ lately. It is really tough to root for a guy, who so desperately needs a check up from the neck up.
