Cam Newton was one of the greatest college football players, not just quarterbacks, of all time. The Auburn product was also one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL during his prime.

The keyword in both of those previous sentences is ‘was,’ as in past tense.

Newton appears to still be living in the past, too.

The current free-agent quarterback recently made an appearance on ‘The Pivot Podcast‘ and made quite the revelation in regards to where he sees himself among other NFL quarterbacks.

Newton doesn’t think that there are 32 QBs in the NFL today that are better than him.

“There’s not 32 guys better than me. On my soul, on my soul, on my soul,” Newton stated. “At the end of the day, compare apples to apples, and oranges to oranges, certain situations for certain situations, and if you think I couldn’t be on somebody’s team right now, you’re a damn fool.”

I guess you, me, and every general manager in the NFL is a damn fool.

Newton’s overflowing confidence and just overall swagger has helped make him one of the most likable, and marketable, athletes of his generation. While you can’t knock him for believing in himself, the line has to be drawn somewhere.

You could very well make the argument that Newton still has enough in the tank to be a No. 2 QB on an NFL roster today, but him saying he’s still got the skillset to be a starter in the league is beyond ridiculous.
