Cam Newton made his name at the University of Auburn by winning the National Championship and the Heisman trophy in the same season. His professional success has had some high and low moments. In an sit down interview with a local Charlotte broadcaster Cam describe the type of player that he is in the NFL, and how he is unique to the position of quarterback.
“Absolutely not,” he told WCCB-TV, via AL.com. “And I say this with the most humility, but I don’t think nobody has ever been who I’m trying to be. Nobody has the size, nobody has the speed, nobody has the arm strength, nobody had the intangibles that I’ve had. I’m not saying that to say I’m a one-on-one type of person that this league will never see another. No, I’m not saying that. Hear me out. I’m just saying that so much of my talents have not been seen in one person.”
Newton isn’t lacking confidence. Though he opened his comments with “the most humility”, the fact is that Newton hasn’t won enough for others to consider him a legend. He has made 2 pro bowls, won 2 division titles, and missed only 2 games in 4 season; yet the career 30-31-1 recorded and the career complication percentage under 60 can’t be overlooked. Newton is correct is that no quarterback has had the type of skill set that he posses; however, that comes with the burden of truly becoming a legend in the eyes of his peers and fans.
