Vegan automatically disqualifies Cam from DC QB1.
Never trust a man that doesn’t eat meat.
Did someone sign him? He's a perfect example of how being a prima donna after age 30 isn't healthy for an NFL player's career. The results have to outweigh the drama.
What a complete and utter moron.
Several pro players have tried the vegan diet while playing pro sports, and all have failed. The ones that come to mind are Bill Walton, Aerian Foster, and incidentally Gerald McCoy. McCoy tried it last year, and finally went away from it when he found he couldn't sustain due to the lack of protein.
I don't think being vegan is his problem. He is inaccurate and he hasn't grown as a passer. The NFL is about constantly evolving and developing. He hasn't. Maybe being a vegan doesn't help with some physical aspects of the game, but I don't think the physical aspects are his issue. He was vegan at the beginning of 2019, so this isn't new. He was pescatarian for a few years prior to that, so he hasn't eaten chicken, pork or beef in a while. I wouldn't recommend a vegan diet for an NFL player. I think the protein gained from red meat is highly beneficial for athletes of that caliber.
However, a vegan diet will compound the physical issues he's already been having.
Cam Newton...New England Patriot.
I suggested.... actually I am being modest. I thought Cam would go to Patriots when he was released on this forum......
Not surprised at all. Belichicks ego is bigger than Brady's. Belichick can win with Cam.
Not a vegan and I'm no expert, but this has a strong scent of BS. If animal meat is the only source of protein on the planet, how in the hell is there an entire market for non-meat protein shakes?
Weightlifters are short on protein? Sure they eat meat, but what the hell are they drinking all those shakes for?
Made from animal products e.g. milk (whey) and eggs
Deal with Patriots reported as incentive laden up to a max of $7.5m.
QB salaries are falling.
Your answer makes no sense. You shouldn't call BS on someone's post, especially one who provided specific examples, and then throw some mindless blather on the paper. Your post is complete drivel. Might help to look up something instead of just spewing nonsense.
Are all powder proteins animal-based? Honest question.
No. Plants have proteins But the particular amino acids best for building muscle are all animal origin. Most of these body building powders are made from by products of the dairy industry. A new market for what used to be a low value, unused by product.
It's because he's 31 years old and has been hurt two years straight. His salary isn't representative of anything in the market.
Wasn't that on Doc Hollywood? lol
I take a hemp powder protein supplement. I'm definitely a carnivore and like to supplement that protein with plant based ones.
I read that Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers are 80/20 vegans. The article referring to them as vegans makes no sense as to the vegan part. You either are or aren't a vegan, but the 80/20 diet seems about right. That is 80% plant based food ingested and 20% meat based food intake. You get a mixture of good stuff.
Whatever he's doing, building muscle doesn't seem to be a problem. He's 6'5'' and built.
I dunno, I guess I'm not a fan of picking players based on their diet. His completion accuracy would be a bigger concern for me.
Also, he’s kind of looney.
Untrue. It is a hell of a lot of work to maintain a vegan diet that provides adequate protein for regular folks. Your statement would likely be true for normal folks.
However, Cam can afford a full time cook and a nutritionist.
Meat and dairy are easy sources of protein but they aren't essential.
