        Cam Newton was volunteering at an elementary school once a week all season long; long before he ever started receiving any individual hype and long before Auburn ever started looking like a contender. During the month+ long witch hunt against him no one in the media ever brought this up, ever. Instead it was deemed that him cheating on tests 3 years ago made him a bad person. The annoying thing for me is the general public buying into what they are told to believe by the media; know full well that if Newton becomes an NFL star that these same guys who are now calling him a self-centered egomaniac will be running stories about how great he is for turning his life around or something.

        • The guy is a big personality, wants to be the greatest the can ever be, has made some questionable decisions but so do a lot of young people with a lot of outside influences. He isn't a bad person but he just needs to make sure he doesn't let his ego ruin his career.

            yeah, i mean, he only stole some **** and then possibly did something that could've jeopardized his entire career. why the hell do people think he's stupid!?

            *rolleyes*

            i get it. you think college kids should be paid, and should basically be able to do anything they want. funny enough, they can't. there are rules. and a violation of those rules can result in adrian mcpherson. so yes, ANY player who's dumb enough to risk his entire career on something ultimately meaningless IS an idiot, and while he may not be illiterate, he's certainly not helping his case.

            i can't even begin to count the number of examples of players who broke the rules at a professional level and suffered dire consequences for it. so again, the issue is, 'do teams think that these are one time aberrations by a cocky moron, or do teams think this is a pattern of behavior that will continue at the next level, possibly keeping this guy out of our games.' disagree that team's should care all you want, but the cognitive dissonance required to attempt to just *dismiss* that is incredible.



            oh, you mean the charges that WEREN'T FILED his sophomore year? let me know when you have some vague understanding of what the word 'fact' means.
            Give me a break Sanchez once again got caught trying to pick up a 16 year old girl in New York.

            To me Sanchez had way more questionable character than Newton.

              come on, flail about some more. people always make their point better when they're completely incapable of articulating anything remotely approaching 'fact', while still trying to pass off every single thing they say as absolute truth.
              ya im sure dating a 17 year old is normal for someone who is 24. This guy has to go around taking advantage of underage girls. Sanchez is a scumbag and it all started at USC.

              His character issues are way worse than cheating on some tests and buying a stolen laptop.

              • Yahoo sports' Doug Farrar questions whether Nawrocki has gone to far in his personal evaluation of Newton.

                • I think Newton carries risk, that's a certainty but all those comments by Nolan Nawrocki seems a bit personal to me. How can a QB who almost personally took a team that was unranked in the pre-season to a National Championship carry no weight with his teammates and be described as "non dependable". That is a pure garbage statement and unworthy of a person who does scouting. It sounds like Newton fluffed Nolan off at sometime and totally p-ssed him off. If you ask me I would say Nawrocki lost some credibility in my eyes.
                  Let's look at Scott's statement" would you risk your job, reputation and the future of your franchise on Cam Newton", it is a 2 edge sword IMO. Sure there is serious risk in drafting Newton but if a GM passes on him, he is also risking his job, reputation and his team's future if Newton goes on to succeed and you pass on him. Worse yet, Buffalo has been down in the dumps pretty well since FA came into being and they need a personality to sell tickets and give the fans something to talk about. Empty seats get you fired even quicker than making one bad pick.
                  And proud of it!!!

                  • I doubt Nawrocki just made up that stuff because he doesn't like him. It would be impossible for anyone to make statements about a player's dedication in the film room, punctuality and dependability by just watching his game tape. This information is coming from NFL scouts and people within the Auburn athletic department. Now whether or not some of this is inaccurate information being told to him by scouts to try and damage Newton's value is another thing. But there is no way this is a smear campaign by Nawrocki because he has a personal vendetta against Newton.

                      That's just way off in my opinion. On NFL Network, they have no problem being critical of Newton, Casserly says he wouldn't touch him in round 1 and Mayock has him as #3 on his QB list, yet none of them, and they all talk to scouts and GM's everyday, have mentioned this garbage put out by Nawrocki.
                      This tirade comes across as personal to me.
                      And proud of it!!!

                          Maybe, but the tone had venom... I pretty much agree with everything that Nolan said in his evaluation... However, I think there are about 100 better ways of putting it.

                            Any time someone from a distance attempts to armchair psychoanalyze a prospect and make broad declarations about their character and psyche, the overreach comes across like a personal attack.

                            Many of the negatives he listed about Cam were either assumed or pure speculation.

                                They're both quarterbacks with impressive physical tools but worrisome character/off the field issues. Just because they don't play the same way, doesn't mean we shouldn't be worried about Newton for the same reasons that we ought to have been worried Russell.

                                Doesn't mean we're convinced that Newton will be the next Russell, but "worrying about prospects" is just part of the process.
