Listen: Cam Newton, Matt Ryan And Adam discussed on BGN Radio
"And you know, if you start looking at quarterback situations. Across the NFL. The forty Niners have their guy. The cardinals think they have their guy Seattle and the Rams have their guy. The falcons have to be leery of Matt Ryan as he gets older, but they've got their guy. I don't think the buccaneers have theirs. I don't think either fits or famous. Jamison king crab leg. I don't think either one of those guys on a long-term answer Cam and Carolina, you better start, grooming. Somebody in New Orleans because breeze can't play forever. The lions have got to make a decision on their quarterback long-term Packers. Have there's going to be their coach. The Vikings are renting a guy short term. And then they're going to blow it up in two more years. The bagel or the bears excuse me think they have their guy in Trubisky. The giants it's a very much an open referendum on who the quarterbacks going to be the Redskins. I mean, if Alex Smith doesn't play again, what do they do at quarterback because they're going to be in the middle of the draft. And I do believe there was compensation that was sent to Kansas City that might hinder the Redskins ability to draft a quarterback Beagles have two, but one's gonna come free. And the Cowboys have a guy that you know, Jerry Jones is a brilliant businessman, but he's terrible general manager the Cowboys have guy they're going to get too much money to. So there are coaching questions their quarterback questions and they're just team questions. And let's get to the phones Joe is in. Adam the trucker Adam is in Virginia next on the gresh show, CBS sports radio. What's up, Adam? Hey, man. Always enjoy your show. Listen, I'm calling on the Carolina Panthers. I'm I'm wondering if if there is a culture problem, or I know there's a lack of talent in cheap places special loan office, apply and skin what some fifteen nation your lot. I know cameras hurt. Thanks should be in a lot better position than they are right now, Adam so you identify as a Carolina fan. I would assume is that correct? So let me ask you about. Cam Newton is Cam Newton. Just a great athlete playing the position of quarterback. Or is Cam Newton a leader of men. I'd like to know from you a panther fan. I would say he's Alito man because he's taking to nothing has been put him on his back more than and got at least gotten them into the playoffs and not with much talent around. This guy's home for twenty eight thousand yards and hasn't had a number one received since his rookie year. That's a you. That's a hell of a backup of an argument right there. Adam. Thank you. That's good job by Adam. Right. They're contributing because I see great numbers with Cam Newton. But I don't know. Here's my struggle with Cam Newton. The numbers are really good. But what I don't know is do you guys have to follow him. Because he so amazingly talented. They have no other choice or do the other fifty two players on that roster and the other forty four guys on game day. Do they play for Cam Newton? That's where I struggle. And that's why I think at times you see the Panthers kinda go into these weird walls. Right. Like they were six two. And they've lost four row. I mean, they got it handed to him in Pittsburgh. They lost a one point game to lions they lose a three point game to the Seahawks. And they lost by touchdown at Tampa last week. Like, I just don't I that some dumb, and I want to like Cam like I think his his flavor if I can say that as a honky his flavor is good for the league the way dresses, little edgy Carey's. I like see him not be pooh-poohed button. Pouty? Impress conferences. But I can get over that. I just don't know if. When it's down to two and the rent is due to people say, you know, what that Newton if we we do our job Newton's go. Find way to get us there. I I struggle with that. I really do Ryan is in Nashville on the gresh show on CBS sports radio. What's up, Brian? You raise a great point all of these questions around the league, I'm a Miami Dolphins fan, and I'll give you I'll give you an answer to a question that a lotta teams. Dolphin. Oh, he's been there. Forever. Sixty here, and you still don't know. Guy. Right. Great great. Great choice angles. No. Sorry. Theory. Who's been with your teeth for five years? Going to at least. Conference championship. Traded somewhere else, and they won't be the guy. Don, jacksonville. In denver. Right now. Titans are coming up on that your next. Asking it Nashville. That's fine. At your window true across the board. Ryan that is a great call. And I never thought of it that way. Now, you have to have the team to be able to get there to get to a conference title game. But I and that may be isn't the only metric to us. But Ryan makes a really good point. You see it or you don't within a couple of years. He's right. He's right. Look if the Kansas City Chiefs get beat in the divisional round, are we going to sit there and say that Pat Mahomes isn't the guy why do people thinking? Yep. That's the guy. There we go. That's our dude ten years. Let's invest in him. And he and he brought up the two names that come up the most. I mean, if you ever made a decision on Andy Dalton as to whether he is a world championship caliber quarterback. Then I can't help you can't help you. What I think some would struggle with might be say the Joe flacco of the world, right? So Joe flacco when I'm trying to I'm trying to look up his. His career pretty quickly. Because I thought it was early on. And Joe flacco career, they they ended up winning that championship. It was a couple of years in. So I think that five year rule might work. You know, Ryan you're onto something. Within five years, you either see it or you don't and maybe get there for one reason or another, but you can kind of look at your quarterback. And no, that's an interesting theory. I like that. College football Heisman."
