nobody coming out of college should be looked at as a star. They havent proven anything other than they can beat the 99% of the ppl that played in college that dont make to the pros.

This is why college football blows, someone with a good talent and ability there is simply average in the pros.

If they put together a playbook utilizing his skill set, i dont see how he cant be successful.

Is he the next dan marino? I dont think so.

I'm not either, but it is such a crap shoot that I suppose the Panthers felt like they had to take him. 

Too many GM's, I think, operate too much out of fear of being "that guy" who passed on someone who went on to be a Hall of Famer and took someone who was either a complete bust, or otherwise didn't live up to expectations.

Carolina was stuck a bit, wish they would have moved the pick.  Cam was an excellent college QB, but I think his accuracy is going to be a downfall in the NFL.

Plus, if he gets even the least bit out of shape, people will start calling him Fig Newton (unless Berman calls him that during highlights...Jeebus that schtick got old fast).

I'm still pissed the 49ers passed on Aaron Rogers and went with Alex Smith...and they've signed Smith to yet another year! I can't believe it, after all this time with a shit qb and now we've gotten at least one more year with him?!?!

Bust.  Awesome physical specimen who can make plays on the run but will not have the intelligence or skillset to be a pocket passer that is required to win in the NFL.  Teams are so desperate to get the next Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, or Aaron Rodgers that they'll draft QBs way above where they should be at like a desperate gamble.

Like what I think will eventually happen to Tim Tebow, injuries will cut his career short...defenseman in the NFL are a lot faster and bigger now.

I can't find it on YouTube, but your quote reminds me of something I saw in the late 70s/early 80s...Tampa had a young black QB in its camp (not Doug Williams)...the coach actually said, "Well, he has the physical tools, but the mental side isn't going to be there, obviously"  Cheesy

I actually saw it on the NFL Network some time ago.  I was shocked that the NFL lets that tape get aired nowadays because people will scream "racism"

Williams tore it up....course as a Redskins fan you would know that he wasn't the starter for the majority of the year......and that he played like a "white" QB.   Timmy Smith was the real hero of that SB...plus Elway was still not sure how to win the big one.

Good old Jay Schroeder...made his debut after Joe T's leg was broken and replayed 76 times.

More than any of the Super Bowl memories (just ahead of Riggins' 4th down td run)...this was my favorite Redskins play of all time when I pulled for them...

Now that I'm older, I can appreciate just how much class Tom Landry showed.  Most coaches today would be screaming obscenities.  He was still thinking about ways to possibly win.

This was also one of those very rare games where the losing team did the "kneel-down" on the last play.  As the game was ending, most of the players ran off the field, but the officials determined there were 2 or 3 seconds to go and made Dallas run another play.  WR Drew Pearson (who had been Joe Theisman's high school teammate and backup QB) actually ran the kneel-down play for the Cowboys.

Really, cam throws for 422/2 td's and know one has anything to say? I don't think even his biggest supporters wouldve imagined what he did yesterday.

Even though the they were playing arizona, it was clear the guy has the tools to play the position.

It was a terrific performance.  I know, of course, that it is just one game, but it was a very encouraging thing to watch.
