    Who doesn't love Football and I think its time we profile today's star players of the gridiron. Of course some would say Flag Football League but that's another topic for another debate. There is plenty great NFL players

    Cam is more talented, but Russell is the better player.

    :lmao:

    Let's see. This year both RG3 and Luck broke one of Newton's records, yet neither one was able to break his passing [on 250+ less attempts] and rushing record simultaneously in the same season.

    How's this for overrated, Cam didn't turn the ball over in five games (no other QB in league has accomplished that feat all season long). Imagine that.

    Oh, guess who's leading the league in yards per attempt... and it's not even close. You guesses it. It's not Brady, Ryan, Peyton, Brees, Rodgers, etc. It's Cam Newton. FYI, he's also leading the league in yards and TDs when corners and safeties blitz.

    Cam has done all this behind a s***ty O-Line and virtually no running game (did I mention he's also the leading rusher on his team). So one has to wonder, is this just Cam-Hate or are you ignorant? [Rhetorical question].

    Hmmmm, that can't be right. Cam is overrated. He's Vince Young 2.0. :o

    It's definitely still between Peyton and Brady. Followed by Brees, Rodgers, Ryan and Eli.

    This is by popular vote and hopefully Brady does not win but then he may. Believe it or not many don't like Giselle's husband.

    Just off the top of my head, I'd vote for Adrian Peterson, J.J. Watt, Aaron Rodgers, and Darrell Revis over Brady.

    I think Rodgers will have more rings then Brady and think they have a good chance getting to the Superbowl if 49ers are takien out and Giants don't make it in.

    And his team is under .500 and he would rather celebrate a touchdown when down by 28, sorry overrated might have been the wrong word. Selfish or there for himself might be a better term. Yeah your stats are nice, but look at his attitude. Him and Cutler can make every throw, but they can't handle adversity.

    And all of his "rookie" records came in garbage time. It's easy to complete passes against a cover 4

    How many times has your boy led his team from behind for a victory? 2 in two years I believe.

    A QB is judged by wins and losses homeboy this ain't fantasy football.

    Now you're stretching, and it's pathetic. You talk about demeanor, and yet where was your judgemental ass when The Redskins were on a three game skid? Guess who was sulking on the bench alone? RG3. And where were you when Luck celebrated a 35 yard completion to Reggie Wayne being down 20 points to The Patriots? Selfish. :o

    :lmao:

    Wow. And I'm sure the Cover 2 is any better when the safeties are average to mediocre, huh?

    Hmmm, Cam has had nine "game-winning" drives erased by the defense (which has featured rookies, UDFAs, reserve and practice squad players).

    You're right, I guess Peyton Manning, Troy Aikman, Dan Marino, John Elway, etc were busts.

    Complain all you want but Cam is the only reason why the Panthers' offense moves. It ain't because J-Stew and D-Will are having a great season. He places the team on his back and moves down the field. Now does he make mistakes here and there? Yep, what QB doesn't but when your O-Line is filled with injuries and tackles/guards playing center (who would rank a 45-60 rating in a Madden) what do you expect?

    But who I am kidding? You don't care. You'll hate Cam even if he wins a Superbowl.

    How about we just vote for who is in the current battle and just have faith that am well aware who the best current players are.
    Wilson is leading but Cam could still win

    #'s 1 & 3 on the all time wins list, with mediocre defenses for most of their careers.

    I get it your a Cam fan and I admire your defense of him, I truly do. I'm sorry I raised your ire with my comment. Never in any of my comments did I mention Luck or RG3. But you can't deny the fact that Newton played most of last year from behind, and as a Bronco fan who had to deal with watching Kyle Orton pile up stats while losing and at the end of the day stats mean nothing when you don't win. I just don't believe Cam Newton is worth all the Hype he receives yet, thus making him overrated. Win some games before you Superman celebrate and sign your Under Armour deals. Same goes with any young player in the league. If I see Wilson all over my T.v this offseason before he's earned it, I'll call him the same. Trust me I spent two years at ground zero of "Tebowmania" I kinda have a grasp on overrated hype.

    For now, let's just agree to disagree.

    And Cam isn't dealing with a mediocre defense? Sure, we're a Top 10 defense now but it's only because Rivera is a defensive wizard and Luke Kuechly, Greg Hardy and Thomas Davis are playing their hearts out.

    Our secondary is subpar. We have three rookies (two of them were late round picks and one went undrafted) starting back there and they're not fast.

    There's a difference. Cam Newton isn't being overhyped. Haven't you been paying attention? Since RG3 and Luck arrived on the scene, the media is practically labeling him a bust and tearing into him. Dude, the NFL Network claimed that Newton was struggling this year because he was jealous of RG3. Have you even read his draft profile? It's basically just two pages of outright slander and criticism. Cam Newton before playing a single down was played in the NFL was declared a bust.

    So again, how has he been overhyped? He's the most criticized QB in the league today.

    Dude I'm done with this argument. I said my peace. I'm not gonna convince you otherwise, and you aren't gonna make me change my opinion. When he wins I'll label him a winner and deserving of the praise he recieves. Until that point he's just another starting QB in the league. I don't care what the Networks say, I've been watching football for 28 years I can formulate my own opinion. He's a top 20 Qb in a league with 32 teams. He's above average, I simply said he needs to do something before he can act and do the things he does. I understand it's a media driven world anymore, and everybody wants the flavor of the week. He just hasn't earned my praise yet.

    But fine, so we don't have to keep doing this back and forth..., YOU ARE RIGHT, I'M SORRY I CALLED HIM OVERRATED. I hope he has a productive offseason, I'll be cheering my team on in the playoffs.

    Call him what you want, but if he's average then so is Luck and RG3 then. I don't care how many years you've been watching football, I'd advise you to pick up a dictionary and look up the definition to 'overrated' because in order for Cam to be overrated and/or overhyped, it would require fans and analysts everywhere to proclaim him a Top 5 QB.

    Good luck to your team. I know I'm looking forward to the off-season. Ross or Gamble could be our new GM, and that makes me very happy about our future.

    I'd argue that Cam is chastised more often than Cutler but I'll you give Romo.

    Dude it sounds like you are just bitter because both the skins and the colts are in the playoffs while you guys are sitting at home. You keep bringing up Luck and RG3 when no one is even talking about them. The battle was between Wilson and Newton, and it looks like Wilson will have almost as many wins in his rookie year as Newton has. I really don't mind Cam, or the panthers.

    I hope the pathers figure their team out, and I wish you guys luck next year. :) thank you for the discussion.

    Yeah, I'm sure possessing a Top Three defense has nothing to do with that, huh?

    I'm not bitter, I'm just a Panthers fan setting you straight about Cam Newton. Like him or not, he has a bright future. Even his detractors and critics know that now. As for me mentioning RG3 and Luck, it's warranted. Cam is constantly compared to both, Luck especially. In fact, Luck, in alot of ways is Newton. A smaller, slower, and less athletic version but both Luck and Newton are gunslingers who at times force plays and hold onto the ball too long.

    I hope we do too. We still need two more drafts before we can be a playoff contender but I'm feeling good about the strides we made this year after such a rough start.

    Good luck to you guys again. :up:

    Take him out of the line up and you'll have a 1-15 team. Guaranteed. Remember, that's how we got the opportunity to draft him in the first place.

    Anderson and Clausen? Win, with that O-Line? Whew! Good luck selling that to any football fan.

    Time will tell, I'm pulling for the guy. I'm sorry I called him overrated, I should have chosen my words better.
