2011 NFL Draft E-mails - Cam Newton



  • From Chris E:

    How in the world can anyone compare Gabbert to Newton (who has the size and tools to change the QB position). Gabbert attempted 500 or so passes and threw 16 TDs. Meanwhile Cam made the SEC look like Pop Warner football, scoring at will and dominating while his family was being thrown under the bus EVERYDAY... Honestly, someone as athletic as him...how long will it take him to learn better footwork?? His arm and throwing motion are already there and he's a winner... If Alex Smith and Tim Couch are 1st overall pick worthy, how in the hell is Cam not??


    --> The problem with Newton is the mental stuff. Is he smart enough to ever learn how to make multiple reads and recognize the blitz? He didn't have to do that at Auburn because the Tigers ran a Looney Tunes offense that doesn't translate to the pros.



  • From Tad D:

    hey walter! i have a real quick question: IF (cannot put enough emphasis on the if) Cam Newton is available at 10, do you think the Redskins draft him or does he fall two more spots to the Vikings? Thanks!


    --> I don't see Newton fitting Shanahan's offense, so the Vikings would draft him. I can't see Newton falling out of the top three though.





  • From Howard P:

    Now I know why they call it "mock". $cam Newton first overall, to Carolina and their fascist owner? You're out of your goddamn mind. "He's a leader", "he has 'it'". He has 'it', alright, 'it' being $180,000 for playing at Auburn while the Nationally Corrupt Athletic Association scapegoated his old man and looked the other way. Newton is a cheat, a liar, a fraud and a crook. He'll wind up like Reggie Bush, in a few years Auburn will be on probation and $cam Newton will be giving back the Heisman Trophy he didn't deserve in the first place. Newton sucks, he's a tailback taking snaps. He can't throw, can't make reads and can't think. But boy, he's got a great smile and can bullshit the media even when he does tell the truth momentarily "I'm going to be a big entertainer, that's what I really want to do". Hope the a**hole can sing and dance, because he can't play quarterback in the NFL.

    Frankly, Jerry Richardson is such an obnoxious fascist, I'd like to see him get stuck with this creep, the 2011 Akili Smith. But I like the Panthers, so I hope that senile Ralph Wilson gets stuck with this bum. Did I mention you're out of your goddamn mind?


    --> Adam Schefter said the first pick will be a quarterback. All the Charlotte newspapers believe it'll be a quarterback. The Panthers need a franchise quarterback. Whether it's the right move or not, the pick will be a quarterback. And the Panthers may not like Blaine Gabbert.



  • From Xhevahir:

    This mock draft is hilarious. It's almost as if the author kept all of the text from previous mock drafts that explained why Cam Newton was the inevitable first overall pick and then just replaced his name with Gabbert's.


    --> I'll be here all week. When I mocked Cam Newton to Carolina, I wasn't mocking a certain player; I was predicting that the Panthers would draft a quarterback. That's why most of the text still applies.





  • From Brandon:

    Worst Bills draft yet. Worse than if Buffalo actually did it. They wont take Newton. Nix stress's character and doesnt gamble early. Peterson, or Miller there. This whole draft you add a starting TE? Maybe an ILB? man this is just bad.


    --> Might as well copy-paste a Rotoworld report from Thursday:

    Sources tell ESPN 101's Tony Softli that the Bills believe Cam Newton "is the franchise quarterback" the organization needs. The same sources feel Buffalo is a good fit because Ryan Fitzpatrick can be a placeholder while Newton "develops." The situation could be similar to Donovan McNabb's when he broke into the league, often coming off the bench behind Doug Pederson. We're just not sure Newton is going to make it past the Panthers at No. 1. The Bills would probably take him if he does.

    In your face, Brandon!



  • From Justin:

    Just seen that this site has Blaine Gabbert as a round 3-4 prospect in the 2012 rankings, and Cam Newton as a round 4-5 prospect. How have they shot so high?


    --> Those 2012 rankings were updated back in July, so Cam Newton hadn't even played at Auburn yet. Blaine Gabbert's rise has been the product of a weak quarterbacking class and a major need at the position from so many teams in the top 15.

    When Mallett speaks I want to slap him, he sounds like an incredibly arrogant wigger. I do think he'll be a good qb for somebody though, especially if he gets picked between the 2nd and 3rd round as that should put him in his place and humble him a bit. Also, whenever Sanchez opens his mouth I want to slap him too, I bet Claussen wishes he had B Edwards and Holmes to throw to.

    I laughed / felt sad simultaenously at the April Fools' mock when Qalt gave us a Tight End. Because it's true, and it's almost a joke now.

    Haters gon' hate heh

    Who are these pole smokers(not that there's anything wrong with that). The April fools mock was funny as sh!t. There is no proof to show that Mallet isn't dumb as sh!t. And I have no clue who Chris Hope is but if Walter says he sucks then he must be sh!t

    Haha wonderlic scores. Mallet got a 26, which means he'll be incredibly better than Marino, Bradshaw, or Jim Kelly who all had 15s. BETTER PICK MALLET FAST!

    The haters on here are one more sign of the world going to hell in a hand basket. ...And the sad thing is that they can most likely breed.

    Walt provides a great FREE (yes free) service here...Loved the April Fools' draft. Had many lolz.

    Hey TT one name for you. PACMAN JONES, he's the DB that Tennessee drafted 6th overall in 2005. He also spent the equivalent of three years (Slight Exaggeration) either suspended or in jail. He is also the reason why a Las Vegas bouncer can't walk. You want to compare Pacman to Talib. Really if thats what you want knock yourself?

    I actually liked the april fools mock, but thats probably because A) Im not a homer, and B) I can take a joke.

    But kudos to them for loving their team that much.

    Wow. It never ceases to amaze me how many looneys are out there that would take something like the April Fools Mock so bloody serious. It was all for fun. Holy crap guys with all the serious analysts out there arguing strenuously over each mocked pick it's nice to throw a little humor in there every now & again. I look forward to jerks of the week and I'm proud to say I've been following the site long enough to have been here since the first jerk of the week.

    Therefore you angry people who hate on Walter for his site and his humor, you're my jerks of the week.
