Favre would be 'delighted to work with' Newton

One of the big concerns with new Panthers' quarterback Cam Newton is that he might not have the best advisors in the world. That's not supposed to be an affront to his agent Bus Cook or his family or his friends, it's just a statement of fact given what happened during his final year at Auburn.

So how about we give him a mentor? Like, say, Brett Favre???

That's the idea that former Panther and current radio host Brentson Bucker came up with, via USA Today. "What better guy for Brett to coach than the No. 1 overall pick,'' said Buckner. "And what better guy for Cam Newton to learn from than a future Hall of Famer."

Randomly: Bucker's the only NFL jersey I've ever purchased, because his first name and my last name are phonetically similar. But does that little piece of meaningless trivia qualify him to suggest that Favre mentor Newton? Well, probably not.

But the two do share an agent ... and Favre is poking around about a new career.

"Brett has offered to do that before with Cam," Cook said on Tuesday. "He would obviously be delighted to work with Cam. They've met and they've talked."

Bucker makes a good point that it would help Newton because right now, with the lockout in effect, he can't get any advice from people who know what they're doing.

But there's also another problem here: as great as Favre might be, he's been best known in recent years for two things that might not really be ideal for a mentor. The Jenn Sterger issue, and refusing to allow Aaron Rodgers to come of age.

One has to think that if the Carolina Panthers decided to hire or -- heaven forbid -- sign Favre that it might be difficult for him to ever accept a role as a backup.

Lets count the ways he could tutor Mr. Newton, cont'd

10) How to get addicted to Vicodin and go to rehab
11) How to get coaches fired
12) How to throw cheap chop blocks and crack back blocks to try and end others careers
13) How to complain that "my ribs are cracked" as a total lie

Go Bears!

"ok Newton, make sure you throw across your body back to the middle of the field when you're scrambling in clutch situations.."
