Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon believes race is a factor for all the criticism Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton receives.  Newton disagrees. "I haven't heard anything he said. But obviously Warren is a person I go to for guidance and leadership on the field and off the field. … When it comes to (racism) I don't think there is any at all." Said Newton via the Chicago Tribune. Moon thinks Newton should be compared to Jay Cutler over Vince Young, telling Yahoo! Sports: "I heard somebody compare him to Vince Young. It's the same old crap -- it's always a comparison of one black to another black. I get tired of it. I get tired of defending it," Moon told the website.  "If you want to compare him to someone because of his demeanor, compare him to Jay Cutler. There are a lot of guys who whine and moan. Cam's not biting anybody's head off or pushing his linemen (as the Bears quarterback did during a Week 2 loss to the Panthers). He's just disgruntled, and not handling losing well, because, think about it, he basically didn't lose in college," Moon continued.  "I don't think Cam's as bad as Cutler, because Cutler looks like he doesn't give a damn sometimes, or he's yelling and cussing at someone. Cam, he just looks down when they're losing." Everyone can agree if Newton plays better the criticism will stop. "I understand I'm not perfect. I'm striving to be great," said Newton during a conference call Wednesday.  "Whatever people may think, or whatever people may criticize me on, I take it for what it's worth, and continuously try to make myself better each and every opportunity I get."
