Newton Gets Ripped

leave a comment »

Every year before the draft, Pro Football Weekly is released written by Nolan Nawrocki analyzing the potential draft picks. In this years edition, Nawrocki discusses Cam Newton and how he will fair in the draft. Aside from talking about what the former Auburn quarterback brings to the field, he went into a deep evaluation of what he believes are Newton’s personal fallouts, which is atypical of the publication.

His criticism consisted of the following, “Very disingenuous — has a fake smile, comes off as very scripted and has a selfish, me-first makeup.  Always knows where the cameras are and plays to them.  Has an enormous ego with a sense of entitlement that continually invites trouble and makes him believe he is above the law — does not command respect from teammates and will always struggle to win a locker room . . . Lacks accountability, focus and trustworthiness — is not punctual, seeks shortcuts and sets a bad example.  Immature and has had issues with authority.  Not dependable.”

Definitely a VERY critical review of Newton personally. Newton has been known to be a minor version of a few of these things but I mean, why wouldn’t he be? He is a good-looking, successful, talented college student athlete who is about to be drafted into the NFL. I would be a little cocky too. Many of these criticism are not relevant to successful Newton would be as a quarterback for a team and do not impact his potential success whatsoever. To personally rip apart a 22-year old man on his personality when writing about his potential as a NFL athlete is completely unnecessary and taking it too far.

How much is too much? This is.
