Gus Malzahn Thinks Cam Newton Can Be Best NFL Player Of All-Time
Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports
While on ESPN's “SportsCenter” onnTuesday night, Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn talked about how he believe Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton has a chance to be the best NFL player of all time...

“He’s got a chance, and I said this when he first came out, he’s got a chance to be one of the best to ever play or the best that ever played,” Malzahn said, per Brandon Marcello of “He’s got everything. He’s got a work ethic, he’s just a great competitor, he’s very coachable, he can run, he can make all the throws. He’s got everything it takes. Everybody is seeing that now and it’s going to be fun to watch.”

“That’s the it factor,” Malzahn said. “The special ones have it and he definitely showed that year that he had it. As the games got bigger, he played his best. He’s got the it factor."
Remember, Malzahn was Cam's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Auburn when he lead the Tigers to a national championship in 2010.

Best of all-time? Lets pump the brakes a bit. Cam is a huge talent IMO.

I dunno. I don't know if his body will hold up with his playstyle long enough to claim that title.

He has a chance to be one of the best of all time. Absolutely. But that would have been the case regardless of where he played college ball. I'm sure Meyer and Gus will both jockey for who gets most credit for Cam. I say the credit goes to Cam. Dude is unreal talent.
