  • Cam Newton is John Elway

    And maybe even Michael Jordan and Wayne Gretzky.

    Did anyone else see Mike Wilbon say that on PTI?

    Athletically, it's a fair comparison. We'll see how his career goes. He has all the measurables, that's for sure.

      $Cam Newton is Willie Beamen.

      Wait until reality hits. The honeymoon will come to a crashing halt.

        Nope, John Elway is John Elway. Nice try though Wilbon, they don't even look alike!

          Look at the list of QB's that has done what Cam has done in their first 2 games as a rookie.

          On that list, only one actually did something in his career. Warren Moon.

          Cam Newton is closer to being another Tim Couch, than Elway or Jordan or Wayne.

            I'm biased because I didn't like Wilbon before. But is this not the least bit crazy? I'm asking a neutral thinker.

              What makes it crazy is he's comparing a guy who's played two games to a guy in the HOF with 5 SB appearances.

              Athletically, it's not crazy. Newton is big, fast, and has a cannon for an arm. He might not have quite the arm Elway did, but he's close enough. Physically, he's bigger and stronger than Elway was and faster too.

                  It's really not crazy to compare the two. Both are very similiar.

                    The weird part is saying it so early. It's a cliche that you have to wait a while before judging a guy to the good or bad.

                      ....as sensitive as some are about Tebow being compared to Elway I'm surprised this thread hasn't turned into this...

                        I know . . . at least Tebow is on Elway's team. They just mean "he'll be the next QB that is the face of the Broncos."

                        Wilbon is basically saying Cam is as good as Elway.

                        Who knows? The guy can sure play (which I thought was quite obvious last year).

                            That's just dumb.
