The Next Great?
A great debate is under way on whether or not Cam Newton can become a quality NFL quarterback. Naysayers, who seem to be the majority, claim that Newton is a spoiled, ego-maniac, perp who will never amount to anything. Objectively, Cam is a freak athlete and, in theory, looks like the prototype for future NFL quarterbacks. He does have a police record, but so many other successful, professional athletes do nowadays. Anyway, does it really matter? In sports, as in many other aspects of life, being a cocky a@@hole doesn't necessarily mean that you will be a failure. Sometimes it helps.
Are we hating Cam because we feel inferior in the presence of his greatness (like we do with Lebron)? Why can't he become the next great QB? So many people have already written him off that I would love to see him get drafted #1, be dominant in the NFL, and lead his team to championships.
Expect big things from this man. Why? Because he has the impetus: simply to prove you wrong, hater!
