Cam Newton is no stranger to the limelight. People have been talking about him for a while now. His star has begun to shine well beyond the game that made him famous. His dance moves, his fashion sense, everything about Cam Newton just works, which is probably why the NFL Lines always seem to favor him. Considering his actions after the Super Bowl, is anyone really surprised that he has been named the third most important person in the NFL? And according to USA today, he might very well be the most important player in the game.

Cam Newton is to the Panthers as Batman is to Gotham City

USA Today did what it does best and ranked the people in the NFL based on their importance. And among all the names that made the cut, Cam Newton stood out from the crowd, the Carolina Panthers Quarterback ranking as the third most important person in the NFL. He lost to Jerry Jones (Owner of the Dallas Cowboys) and Roger Goodell (the NFL commissioner), but number three is a decent position to occupy. Cam Newton is not only popular but highly polarizing, which explains why he has been so thoroughly discussed and analyzed. Cam Newton is the perfect amalgamation of size and athletic prowess. The first rookie ever in the NFL to pass for four thousand yards, the 6-5, 245-pound player just might beat Hall of Famer Steve Young for the position of highest number of career touchdowns by a quarterback.

This isn’t even taking into account his record as the player with a TD through the air and on the ground. Granted, Newton is barely tying with Young for these accolades. However, impressive as Young might have been, Newton is clearly the superior player by far. Whereas Young achieved his records after fifteen years in the NFL, Newton is already set to surpass him in his sixth year in the league. Cam Newton has done wonders for the Carolina Panthers. In the previous season, not only did he become the first player to pass for more than thirty touchdowns but he also rushed for double-digit TDs. This has never been done by a single player in the same year.

Yet, if anyone was going to knock such records out of the park, Cam Newton was always the guy. As far as athletic NFL players, Newton is the rare individual that has actually thrived with a read option attack. That being said, Newton is always evolving, becoming a more competent pocket quarterback. He is the kind of player that only falls back on his physical talents when a play breaks down. Fans barely remember Newton in his earlier days, that sulking guy with a towel draped over his head and who could hardly stand amid the poor performance of his side. Today, Newton has substantially marked the franchise quarterback label with his signature. This Panthers player is something new and unique, the sort of quarterback the NFL has never seen before. The fact that Newton’s personality shines just as brightly off the field has allowed him to truly thrive, often seen attending children’s parties and holding kickball tournaments.
