    One hasn't...

    I am all for Tannehill getting love, but I just think he should EARN it first.
    I find it difficult to imagine Tannehill having played in 5 Superbowl's by this point in his career. You have a very odd way of judging rookies.

    1) He stole laptops. Pretty pathetic. Shows his character.

    2) Everyone knows his dad shopped him around to colleges.

    3) The whole Superman thing. That ridiculous endzone thing he does. When he did that trailing by a ton of points late in a game, it just demonstrates how he markets himself and puts that ahead of the team. This may lend itself to going 6-10. Put up nice stats and still lose games on the reg.

    Also, the whole Superman thing is so played. Shaq, Dwight Howard, countless other players, the whole Batman and Robin **** whenever 2 good players are on a team together. Just the whole comic book hero act. Its ****ing played already.

    4) Labeling himself as an "Icon and an Entertainer". Again, points to how he wants to market himself. But, selling himself is not something he ever did before the NFL. Hey, there is nothing wrong with marketing yourself and trying to get your money up, but some wonder if this is sometimes done at the teams expense.

    5) His whole demenor. Towel on his head etc etc.. People dont like a lot of that ****.

    So there you go. Now before anyone else wants to throw the race thing out there just because its so easy to do that, ask yourself why so many people seem to not like Jay Cutler. Has to be because he is black..... right? Cant be about his play or his attitude. Because he has proven much more as a player in this league than Newton has so far. If Jay Cutler were white, he wouldnt get so much hate.

    Edit: Oh, and Deion Sanders dosent help much either. Cam being dramatically overrated by the media also has no effect on why people hate on him.
    I agree that people dislike him for these things. But, him being black kinda adds some fuel to the fire as well. Get what I'm saying? If Cam was white he would be criticized, but not as much.

    The Smith guy on first take went off on a 15 minute rant about racism against Newton over this cartoon



    Apparently black players should be immune to criticism. Though to be fair first take goes off on a racism rant at least once a week so I shouldn't be surprised.

    Ultimately.....regardless of how talented Cam Newton or Ryan Tannehill are, great quarterbacks are in my opinion great primarily because of whats upstairs.

    The intangibles, decision making, how they handle pressure situations is what separates the great ones from the lesser QB's.

    We won't have a final answer for years on just how good one or the other are for sure.

    I will say that I don't give Cam Newton much of a chance of a long career if he keeps thinking he is Earl Campbell running the ball up the middle.

    Most runningbacks have comparitively short careers...a QB just can't take punishment RB's take and expect to have a long career as a QB.
    Jay Fiedler can take his'n and lose to your'n.....or take your'n and lose to his'n.
