Are the Panthers going to get Cam Newton killed?

Postby KeithJ » Mon Oct 10, 2011 12:14 pm

I saw a bunch of the Panthers game yesterday and what they're doing with Cam doesn't get done in the NFL for a reason. Cam may have been able to take hit after hit on option plays in college but he's gonna end up seriously getting hurt in the NFL if they keep running option plays for him.

Yeah he plays in the same style as Mike Vick as in they run a lot and can get knocked out at any time. Tim Tebow is in the same boat too.

He does play in the same style but I don't think Vick is running option plays to the outside.

Oh ok, yeah if that's the case Newton is even more prone to getting hurt.

Well, I have seen Vick run option plays to the outside but it is true that he is more likely to get hurt playing that way in the NFL but a lot of that is just the kind of QB he is and you need him playing like that. He is different than Vick in that he is a much bigger guy and he has the size to absorb a lot more hits than a QB like Vick does. I think that is showing this year in how he's been able to run and take hits without going down with an injury yet but we'll see how long it continues to stay that way.
