Cam Newton: "Being An African American QB.. Your Gift is Your Curse"

Cam knows from experience.

A post shared by Bleacher Report (@bleacherreport) on



"I just wanted to be a vessel or an outlet for him," Newton told Rhoden. "I just know being an African-American quarterback in this league, you're facing different things than another quarterback might be facing and a lot of it is, your gift may be your curse. Your running ability may be something that people look down upon."

Of course, Newton and Jackson are both members of the Heisman fraternity. Both players dazzled at the collegiate level with the help of their legs, so they have some similarities in their skill sets.

However, there are some glaring difference in their respective games. Newton was the No. 1 overall pick back in 2011 because of his 6'5", 245-pound build and a big arm. Meanwhile, questions surrounded both the 6'2", 212-pound Jackson's size and arm (57.0 percent completion rate at Louisville), leading him to fall all the way to the 32nd pick in the draft.

Regardless of their differences, Newton believes he can help Jackson adjust to life in the NFL.

"Now I look up and I see—here's another quarterback, a young gunner who reminds me somewhat of myself," Newton told Rhoden. "He may be doing it faster, he may be more elusive, but at the end of the day, I still want to make the road as easy as possible."

"My thing has always been, 'I'm not going to change.' When I talk to Lamar, my main thing is, 'Bro, do you. Be you, and that's what a lot of people are afraid of, because when you're comfortable with who you are, when you have that aura about yourself that nobody can really teach, that's when you're most dangerous.'"

Just win ballgames. Damn what somebody outside of your contractor thinks or looks down upon. If you gotta run, you gotta run.

1) Mobile QB takes off and makes plays with his feet.... 'He's electrifying but doesn't pass the ball enough. Not a true QB.'

2) Mobile QB gets sacked or throws an INT.... 'He doesn't process the game well'

Get it done however you can. Too much emphasis on being a traditional QB which hinders so many guys black and white. It is on the coach to tailor the offense to their QBs strength and should not be the QB being forced to adapt to what the coach is used to doing but too many coaches are too stubborn to change their ways

If there was ever a missed opportunity to race bait, it never happened on your watch

Tough to respect any man who wakes up feeling like a victim every morning of his miserable life
