Bo Jackson Compares Cam Newton to Dan Marino, John Elway, Michael Vick, Jerome Bettis, and Jesus

Okay, so we're just kidding about that last one. Contrary to popular belief, Cam Newton cannot—we repeat, cannot—walk on water or turn water into wine. But if you ask Bo Jackson (an Auburn alum like Newton, by the way!), Newton can do just about everything else on the football field. Which is why he went on Jim Rome's radio show earlier this week and compared Newton to a laundry list of NFL legends.

"He has the arm strength and power of Dan Marino and John Elway combined," Jackson said. "He is quicker than Michael Vick, faster than Michael Vick. And he will run you over with the power of a Jerome Bettis."

Bo knows everything. But in this case, he must know something that we don't. Because comparing Newton to Marino, Elway, Vick, and Bettis? Um, no. Sorry, Bo, but no way. [via Shutdown Corner]
