What he doesn't see is another Vince Young. That's a comparison that rubs the Hall of Fame quarterback the wrong way.
Moon spent the first five years of his professional career lighting up the Canadian Football League before finally getting a shot in the NFL. He knows how stereotypes can hurt black quarterbacks.
"If you want to compare him to someone because of his demeanor, compare him to Jay Cutler. There are a lot of guys who whine and moan. Cam's not biting anybody's head off or pushing his linemen. He's just disgruntled, and not handling losing well, because, think about it, he basically didn't lose in college.
"I don't think Cam's as bad as Cutler, because Cutler looks like he doesn't give a damn sometimes, or he's yelling and cussing at someone. Cam, he just looks down when they're losing."
"You wouldn't know if we won or lost when you listen to him talk after a game," Moon said of Wilson. "That's what you want."
Newton is far from a lost cause. And he's certainly not Vince Young. Newton's a 23-year-old who needs to grow up. That makes him no different than 90 percent of 23-year-old guys on this planet.
