The Jay Graves Report

“If You Don’t Know Now You Know!”

"I got this bruh!"

The debut single for the late great rapper “The Notorious B.I.G. back in 1994 was a hot joint called “Juicy” and in the chorus he kept saying, “If you don’t know, now you know!” Well there were a lot of people that didn’t know last summer! A writer for Pro Football Weekly, Nolan Nawrocki, wrote an article on the positives and negatives of Cam Newton. Although he had some positives to say about his mechanics, he completely blasted the most important aspect of the kids life, his character.

He says in his summary of Cam: “Very disingenuous—has a fake smile, comes off as very scripted and has a selfish, me-first makeup. Always knows where the cameras are and plays to them. Has an enormous ego with a sense of entitlement that continually invites trouble and makes him believe he is above the law—does not command respect from teammates and always will struggle to win a locker room. Only a one-year producer. Lacks accountability, focus and trustworthiness—is not punctual, seeks shortcuts, and sets a bad example. Immature and has had issues with authority. Not dependable.”

I’d like to be sitting next to that clown right now. All of his observations of Cam were in my opinion, a personal bias formed as a result of the NCAA investigation of the kid which didn’t find him guilty of anything. I mean, is this guy a writer or a psychologist? Either way, Cam’s got him and every other idiot in the media that didn’t give him a foo foo dogs chance in the hood looking stupid.

They were and still are lining up to say how the kid won’t make it in the NFL and my man Cam has done nothing but use it as bulletin board material. He passed for 432 yards against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, the most ever in a single game by a rookie. He has 854 yards passing through two games, another rookie record, and for a few hours that stood as the most by any quarterback in the first two weeks of the season. Then New England’s Tom Brady broke the mark again later in the day with 940. The previous record was 827 by Kurt Warner in 2000.

He’s stingin’ boyz right now and all I keep hearing is haters in the media saying he‘s not impressive. I heard Colin Cowherd say that he’s got more picks than touchdowns and he hasn’t won a game. What? The kid is completely destroying defenses and that’s the best you can come up with? He’s a rookie quarterback on the worse team in the league with one weapon, Steve Smith. How do I know it’s the worse team in the league? Because they drafted him with the first pick in the NFL draft that‘s how. Seems like you would know that if it’s your job to know sports. The worse team get’s the first pick that’s how it works bruh! How many games did Troy Aikman or Peyton Manning win their rookie year? I can count that on my little hand, 4 total (Aikman 1 and Manning 3)! Now, I’m not saying that he’s going to be a Hall Of Famer like those guys. However, I am saying that he shouldn’t be expected to win anymore games than they did as rookies.

Let’s see, they’ve been playing pro football in this country since 1920 that’s 91 years for those that can only criticize and can‘t add or subtract. Cam Newton has in two weeks done what no one else in darn near 100 years has been able to do and your saying that he’s got too many picks? My motto has always been, “If more than 50% of the people in the room aren’t hating on you. Then you need to step your game up!”

Cam I think you’re doing exactly what you’re supposed to be doing young bruh and that’s increasing your number of hater by 20% every week. The more you keep showing up on Sundays the more we can watch the haters pile up and come up with ridiculous arguments as to why you aren’t any good. I love it! The entertainment is in waiting to see what these guys are going to say next.

I even heard the Colin say, well Tom Brady is on pace to break Dan Marino’s single season passing record by 2,000 yards. Really bruh, did you just say that! That’s like saying that after the first 75 meters Husain Bolt is on pace to break the 200 meter world record by 4 seconds. It’s like saying that when Kobe scored 81 points against Toronto in 2006, he was on pace to become the all-time NBA scoring leader in 3 seasons! That’s called I’m mad that this kid is making me look stupid in front of my audience because I’m supposed to be the sports authority.

Well bruh, Cam is proving that he belongs in the league and as he learns from his mistakes he’ll only get better.

 The kid has been so good over the course of his life that he simply doesn’t understand that there are people that possess the same amount of talent that he does. Can you imagine going through life and being the very best at what you do everywhere that you’ve gone until you were 21 or 22 years old?

There are very few people that can say that and he’s one of them. He shouldn’t feel bad about throwing two interceptions against Green Bay because he got picked both times by Charles Woodson! As Charles was pulling those boyz out of the air he was saying, ” I won a Heisman too young bruh, don‘t get it twisted!” The old timers always say that experience is the best teacher. Now Cam knows that he’s in the NFL and that there are other people that are just as good and in many cases even more gifted than he is.

It’s like all of a sudden waking up in the Matrix because everybody in the league was the man growing up. When the game finally slows down for him, he’ll be the man all over again. He’s just being reminded right now of when he was a kid  teasing the neighbors dog that finally breaks the chain and bites his boy. At that very moment someone rode past bumping that Juicy, “If you don’t know now you know!”
