    Cam Newton = Vince Young?

    Direct Snap: Comparison of Cam Newton to washout Vince Young a bit harsh - Yahoo! Sports

    Just saw this article on Yahoo! and the comparison makes a lot of sense. Any thoughts?

    Re: Cam Newton = Vince Young?

    Newton has been able to get by on pure athleticism his whole life and visibly shows frustration when it isn't working anymore.

    Vince Young has very real mental health issues that interfere with his ability to be an NFL player.

    I don't think the two are very comparable.

    Cam Newton is better at running, passing, and managing a game. Other than that I can see the comparison.

    Re: Cam Newton = Vince Young?

    Cam has basically nothing to work with at the moment. He's nearly matched the combined yardage of both running backs, his biggest target is a still very good but old Steve Smith, and a below average defense.

    Re: Cam Newton = Vince Young?

    too early to tell. Plenty of quarterbacks have experienced ups and downs early in their careers. the article mentions Eli Manning, specifically and he's a great example. He's had tremendous ups and downs.

    Not fair to Vince Young. He, unlike Cam, actually won in the NFL.

    Re: Cam Newton = Vince Young?

    Cams problem is everyone else is getting paid now as well. Unlike when he was in college.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    I really hope this is supposed to be a joke.

    Re: Cam Newton = Vince Young?

    If cam keeps playing the way he is currently I could see this comparison being more accurate.

    I believe they are both black. So yes. Exactly alike.
