  1. This hit never gets old. But this one is even better because it is a perfectly timed shot. WHAT! A! HIT! And it clearly shows that it was a legal hit. I'm loving this. Still riding high! Hope the rest of the league and media is on notice. Jones/Neal for POTUS/VPOTUS!!
  2. Why is Atlanta Falcons.com promoting Cam Newton, in his Panther's uniform, and marketing his yogurt product? Get that BS out of here. No self respect for a few dollars.
  3. I only made this thread because I was listening to First Take on my break today and they said something about "intangibles vs natural gifts" talking about Dwight Howard and Andrew Bynum. I always bring it back to football, and I realized that if you were to grade QBs based ONLY on Intangibles all lumped into one category and Natural Gifts all lumped into one category, Cam Newton and Matt Ryan would be the poster boys for each category. Coming out of college in 2008, the flavor of the month in February and March on the NFL Network was intangibles. Mike Mayock was always talking about how amazing this Matt Ryan kid's intangibles were, and boy was he right. If you're gonna give Mayock credit for anything, give him credit for being right about Matty Ice. Then, three years later, this physical freak was coming out of Auburn and Mayock wasn't so much a fan. Neither were most people on the NFL Network, but I don't think anybody here looks to them as the end-all be-all of NFL Draft scouting, so it's kinda whatever. Cam Newton is 6'6" 250lbs, has an absolute ROCKET for an arm, surprising speed for a guy his size, and yet he can't seem to pull games out when they matter most. He represents everything natural. The guy has every physical tool you could possibly ask for in a QB. On the other hand, Matt Ryan has a frail frame. He was around 215 coming out of college and has worked his *** off to put on another 15-20 pounds to thicken up and toughen his body up to be able to take more hits and get up from them. He's never had a very strong arm, and even when they did the QB Challenge thing for college prospects, he didn't out-throw the likes of Flacco or Henne. Sure, he out-threw JDB and Brennan, but those were guys who nobody really expected to have huge arms because they were both system guys, what with JDB playing in the west coast style USC offense and Brennan playing in the Run and Shoot style Hawai'i offense that featured tons of screens and short, quick passes designed to get YAC all day. My point is, in the game of physical attributes, Matt Ryan's only real advantage is his height - he IS 6'4, and you can't take THAT away from him. Other than that, one could very easily say he got the short end of the stick. On the other hand, though, you've got Cam Newton. This is a man who has every single physical advantage that a Professional Quarterback could possibly have. His questions coming out of college were simple: can this kid play QB in the NFL? Can he play within a system? Can Cam Newton become a professional STYLE Quarterback with the ability to throw the ball and come back in the fourth quarter when it matters most? I find it strange how two teams in the same division have drafted such polar opposite QBs in the last five years. It's also seemingly re-ignited the rivalry between the Falcons and Panthers, even though the Panthers in the Cam Newton era haven't figured out how to actually BEAT the Falcons. Matt Ryan: 15-8 through his first 23 games Cam Newton: 7-16 through his first 23 games That's somewhat telling about what exactly is most important at the QB position in football, but even more telling is the 4th quarter stats. In his rookie season, Matt Ryan's shining moment was that beautiful deep corner to Michael Jenkins to get us in field goal range against Chicago. He led the previously 4-12 Atlanta Falcons to an 11-5 record and to the playoffs - that's called winning games. On the other hand, you've got Cam. Sing it if you want, Deion. 6-10 his first season after a 1-5 start; 1-6 his second season so far, but also after a 1-5 start. If there's one thing you've GOT to give to Cam, it's that he's consistent. In his second season as a pro, his completion percentage is 0.1% down from last season. His YPA is down .05 from last season. His TD:INT ratio is up from last year - by 0.05. One thing I will give him is that he's gotten better running the ball from last year, with a massive 1.53 YPC improvement and he's done it on almost the exact same amount of carries through 7 games. That's the good. The bad is that in 13 games where he's had the opportunity to come back and win in the 4th quarter, he's 1-12, with that 1 being the fourth game of his career against an absolutely AWFUL Jacksonville Jaguars defense. Cam Newton has every physical tool a QB could ask for, but his intangibles are questionable. Or are they? Matt Ryan has every intangible you could ask for, but his physical tools are questionable. The difference is clear: intangibles at the QB position win you more games than physical tools. The difference is also clear in another category...the Panthers are in for a very rocky ride for as long as they want to stick with the notion that Cam Newton is THEIR GUY.
  4. http://www.nfl.com/n..._content_stream Despite producing perhaps the greatest season in NFL history for a rookie quarterback, it sure looks like the honeymoon phase of Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton's career in Carolina is over. The Charlotte Observer pokes fun at Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton. (Kevin Siers/The Charlotte Observer) The Charlotte Observer ran a cartoon in their paper on Wednesday in which Newton is seen striking his "Superman" pose to reveal a T-shirt underneath ... with a "Hello Kitty" logo. Newton's thought bubble reads: "I like to pretend there's a big 'S' on my chest." This comes on the heels of Newton sulking on the Panthers bench to end last week's game, but this cartoon seems as out of touch as the existence of newspaper cartoons in general. Would we see an Indianapolis paper take on Peyton Manning in his second year or even a New York paper take on Eli Manning like this? Did the St. Louis Post-Dispatch mock Sam Bradford last year? All of those No. 1 picks did less than Newton as rookies. Newton's rookie season is the one that all rookies are now be measured by. Just three games into an up-and-down year, it's clear the locals expect a lot more out of him in 2012.
  5. All I can say is lets give him something to tell his "sports psychologist" about.
  6. http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nfl--2012-ultimate-mock-draft--aaron-rodgers--jim-irsay-make-sweet-music.html;_ylt=AuBZjRafau30nr.FSwNiyx05nYcB 1. Indianapolis Colts – Aaron Rodgers, QB: It seems that, in the wake of a 1-15 season and Peyton Manning's departure, the Colts are having some trouble selling tickets. The presence of the reigning MVP at Lucas Oil Stadium might help remedy that situation. Rodgers, 28, is at the top of his game and seemingly ascending. Last December, on Showtime's Inside the NFL, a Rodgers admirer declared that "it's impossible to play the quarterback position any better than he is playing right now." I don't know about you, but I tend to defer to Tom Brady's analysis on such matters.
  7. You think Rodgers or Brees were unstoppable.... check this out! sorry if already posted....but, this guy is a BEAST!! & he's about to put some real show this Sunday. What will D-BLOCK do to stop him?
