10. Redskins -- Cam Newton*, QB, Auburn

Mike Shanahan loves mobile quarterbacks, like John Elway, Jake Plummer and Donovan McNabb. He also loves QBs with big arms like Elway, McNabb and Jay Cutler. Newton is both. And we think Daniel Snyder can get over the character questions. The big question about Newton is how he'll fare away from a spread offense. If Tim Tebow can go in the first round, Newton will too.


McNugget? He loves QBs like McNugget? I thinks NOT. Plus I hate the use of the word "mobile". When you say "mobile" I'm thinking of Steve Young and Mike Vick, not the others named. IMO anyways.

My only caveat to drafting Cam Newton is keeping his "Jesus Saves For A Fee" father the hell away from Redskins Park.

I wonder how much we'd have to pay Cam's father to draft him????

:lol: That was the first thing I noticed, too, lpj. Maybe they meant he likes the idea of McNabb.

THAT would make me do cartwheels down the street. I would LOVE to see Cam Newton in Burgundy and Gold. Preferably after a season of sitting on the bench and learning from the Shanahans and Grossman, but we can deal with that AFTER we've gotten him.

It would be funny that we would draft our next first-round QB out of Auburn.

Have you got a better, REALISTIC option?

I'm not sure why you are asking.

Mostly because I'd like to hear what your alternative is, if Newton is there at #10. If he's there should we draft him, or because our last QB from Auburn was a total bust, should we ignore all future Auburn QB's? If so, do we also ignore all Tulane, and Tennessee QB's in the future as well?

Did I say I had an alternative? Did I say I would not be happy if we drafted Cam? Did I say anything negative about Auburn or the SEC in general? Where is this coming from?

Maybe I read more into the tone of your comment, but I don't see anything "funny" about anything in sports. Sports are way too serious of an exercise to ever allow humor, pleasure, or fun to be part of them so far as I'm concerned.

Well, "funny" can also mean odd or weird.

To me sports are as serious as a heart attack. Always have been and always will be.

Then you need to heed that advice more than most, don't you?
