Cam Newton hasn't called it a career yet, although that could come very soon. That doesn't mean that debate about whether or not he is a Hall of Famer hasn't started. It started this weekend and it's a debate that isn't going to be settled anytime soon.
There are a lot of blue checkmarks debating the quarterback's resume and it's safe to say it's a pretty divisive subject.
Does Cam Newton make it to Canton when it's all said and done? 🤔

In a league that now drools over dual-threat QBs who can work outside the pocket and run and also throw downfield, it’s absolute absurdity to wail about Newton being in HOF conversation. pic.twitter.com/5jFCq8nBnb

Can Newton has MORE passing TDs than Troy Aikman/Joe Namath.
MORE rushing TDs than Earl Campbell, Shady McCoy, Eddie George and Thurman Thomas.
SAME yards per carry as Gale Sayers/Barry Sanders.
Plus, a league MVP.
In summary, Cam Newton is most definitely a Hall of Famer‼

The Cam Newton debate on being a Hall of Famer:
- 44th passing yards, right behind Kirk Cousins
- 5,628 rushing yards, 75 TDs
- 194 TD passes against 123 INTs
- 59.9% completion
- 3x Pro Bowl, 1x All-Pro, MVP, no rings
Great player, but HOF? For me, can't get there.

There is a 0% chance of Cam Newton getting in the HOF, nor should he.
Thank you for listening. Enjoy your evening.

He will never even be a Finalist. Which is why I didn't bother engaging with this meme yesterday. https://t.co/Q5ZF8YKico

I loved prime Cam Newton, but if he gets into the Hall of Fame, Matthew Stafford is 100% HOF-bound.
Since 2011 Stafford has:
Higher completion percentage
15,000 more yards
110 more touchdowns
Higher passer rating
*Also, higher playoff numbers in the same amount (7) of games.

It’s almost shocking how quickly people already forgot how dominant Cam Newton was (and is) as a rusher. The best rushing QB in NFL history
Should that qualify him for the Hall of Fame?

There's no doubt about prime Cam Newton being Hall of Fame worthy. The problem Cam is going to have when it comes to whether or not he's a Hall of Famer is his prime was too short. If that's your argument I 100% agree.
I have the feeling that's why some say he isn't a Hall of Famer, but if I was a betting man I would say there are a few Big Js voting no because they don't like the celebrating that is part of the Cam Newton package.
