  1. That’s a hilariously pathetic thing for a guy like alex smith to say…for a guy like him to take a personal public jab at a guy who is guilty of what he could never do –be worthy of a first round pick –is ridiculous. It’s insulting to his own teammates and his fan-base.

    This is a dude who became a multimillionaire just to choke for many years and then 2011 happens: he has one season that isn’t too terrible…and most people figure that he finally gets it; he has finally arrived. He has matured; learned from his mistakes. He has finally grown into and reached the ceiling that is the same floor a franchise quarterback stands on and builds from. And he feels compelled to rag on a guy like Cam?

    Cam Newton is not like Alex Smith because he actually earns a living. And he would never stoop to that guy’s level. And he can punish a defense. And he isn’t a petulant jerk. That’s probably the biggest difference.

    Cam has only had one good season out of one season. Alex Smith had one after a handful of seasons and now he’s the stat wizard who hates stats.

    The people in sports who don’t like stats and think they’re for losers are usually the guys who have a resume of bad stats trying to get a paycheck or fans rationalizing an irrational loyalty to someone or some thing.

    If Alex Smith were the QB of Carolina last year would they have won at least 6 games or even make the playoffs? I don’t know. If Cam were the QB for the 49ers they would’ve had a damn good chance at winning a superbowl because of the QB, not in spite of the him.

    Right now, as we speak, Cam is working out and probably studying game-film. Alex Smith should be studying Cam in order to figure out what a starting NFL QB looks like. Instead, he is memorizing Cam’s stats during his off-season.

    Alex smith is a loser.

  2. “Eagles coach Andy Reid’s standing among his peers seems to have slipped.”

    Well, to be fair, the larger Andy Reid grows in girth, the further away from him people need to stand.

  3. What has Cam proven in only 1 year, other than he can run the ball? Reminds of a former QB in Denver, now with the Jets.

    Only time will properly evaluate Cam.

  4. I don’t see height bothering russel Wilson at all

    We all love watching drew Brees people say he’s a replica of him comming out of purdue

  5. Hey project dude ….wins are wins and that’s the only thing that matters ..unless ur a fantasy football fan that don’t care about wins as much as u do the stats ….I luv my Niners all day everyday or lose that’s my team..and no I don’t play fantasy football .
