Default Cam Newton's Dad is taking over

Can Newton's dad says "let's go public before the NFL Combine."

Cecil Newton is scheduling his son, Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Cam Newton, to have a workout in front of the media in San Diego on Feb. 10, his quarterback coach George Whitfield told ESPN.

The Auburn quarterback arrived in San Diego over the weekend and finished his fourth day of working with Whitfield on Thursday. Much of the emphasis has been on getting Newton, who had played primarily out of the shotgun formation in a spread offense in college, acclimated to working from under center and throwing in rhythm while improving his footwork. The results have "blown away" Whitfield, as well as the elder Newton.

"Cam is ready arm-wise and footwork-wise," Whitfield said Thursday night. "We've had a heckuva of regimen, but he has really made some giant strides in getting this routine from under center down. His dad is seeing that, and saying let's go public before the [NFL] Combine."

Cam Newton has been working out with quarterback coach George Whitfield. Currently unaffiliated with any team, Whitfield tutored Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger during his four-game suspension.

Jason LaCanfora of NFL Network recently reported that some teams are concerned about Cecil Newtonís involvement in his sonís career. Apart from the allegations that Cecil Newton sought payment in exchange for Camís selection of a Division I school, NFL teams generally donít look favorably on, for example, a playerís dad calling up the coach and complaining that his sonís not getting enough game reps.

I would have the same concern if I had an NFL team looking at Cam. When drafted the coach and owner need to sit Cam and daddy down and let them know that they are now Cam's daddy.

I hope Cam absolutely crushes every workout he participates in. The best possible scenario for us is the Cam Newton hype train starts rolling, and as a result we are able to trade down from 2. This is especially true if Fairley is off the board at 1. Trade back to somewhere between 5-8, still nab an impact front seven player, and net some additional high picks.

I think it is a great deal to have your Dad involved. If you want to cut ties with the son, you can always get the father to turn in the playbook.

Reminds me of Macauly Culkin's dad. Almost looks like Cecil is living vicariously through his son. I feel sorry for the NFL team who drafts Newton only to have his dad attached like a chihuahua in heat.

Cam needs to grow a set and put a little distance between himself and his dad.

Its getting a little weird at this point.

I dont think it is weird. While the pay to play thing is disturbing, I dont know if he will be hands on for his career. There are a ton of fathers not even in their kids' lives and some are but dont care about their extra curricular activities. At least this is one that got involved. Hopefully, he will realize he is an adult and needs professionals around him that have the experience.

He's more than just being involved, he's trying to drive the train.

I'm all for dads being involved. Taking over the thing is different though. He has to want his son to be his own man at some point.

Hopefully the NCAA realizes what fools they look like by buying that crap about daddy Newton doing everything on his own and having no influence on his son in the pay for play matter.

The more daddy Newton stays around, the more it should be accepted that Cam knew what his dad was up to.

Wow...it took this guy only four days to fix his mechanics? He must be some kind of Quarterback guru on a whole new level. McD was supposed to be good with Tebow, but it took him a whole season and he's still working on it. Four days...can we hire him too?

His dad just wants to cash in. I agree, he needs to step aside and not screw things up...
He already has a reputation for being dishonest. Remember the scandal earlier last season?

I think it's great that Cecil is involved, but it does appear that he is too involved.

Makes me think of how involved I am with my high school son's athletic career. I'm guiding him now, because high school coaches really don't get athletes to the next level. They don't have the time or resources. But I don't say anything to the coaches about playing time or what they should be doing. I help my son be the best individual player that he can be, which will get him the playing time he needs. If he does get a college scholarship, well then I'm pretty much done. He'll have top notch coaching for free, so I won't have to do anything but kick back. Hmmm, maybe I'll get a job as a lifeguard in Santa Monica and live right on the beach. lol

Cecil seems like he hasn't figured out that at some point he needs to let go... to a certain extent. He needs to always be an adviser to his son on a personal level. Like making sure he understands how to manage his money and fame. But as far as his son's athletic career, it's time to let go and let people who are paid to do those things do their job.

Yep. If daddy keeps buzzing around the facilities and forcing his way into conversations he shouldnt be in, its going to reflect poorly on Cam. Its just not professional.

It just isnt Pop Warner anymore, and nobody elses daddy is buzzing around the facilities.

Is Cam's dad going to threaten to take his boy to another team if he doesnt get the playing time he needs to get his bonuses?

One NFL front office executive tells CBS Sports that he believes Auburn QB Cam Newton's February 10 individual workout is no more than a "publicity stunt."

It's pretty unprecedented for a draft prospect to hold a pre-Combine workout, and CBS' Rob Rang suggests it may be perceived as Cecil Newton's attempt to "upstage" the NFL and its Combine. Media only will be allowed to watch the workout. Scouts won't be there. Said one NFL scout, "The Newtons would be best to realize they aren't in college anymore. ... They could wind up turning more people against them than for them with this." Jan. 30 - 10:49 pm et
