Cam through 10 games in 2015: 15 passing TD's to 9 INT's. This year through 10 games: 14 passing TD's to 11 INT's

Recommended Posts

Pretty good article by David Newton, comparing Cam's 2015 MVP season to this year. Both are eerily similar, and Cam just might give Brees, Brady, and Wentz a run for their money with 6 games left. as far fetched as that sounds.

EDIT: DAVID NEWTON IS AN IDIOT. 

Please disregard this article due to inaccuracy of statistical data.

It wasn't until Game 10 in 2015 that Newton began his push for the MVP award he won over the New England Patriots' Tom Brady and the Arizona Cardinals' Carson Palmer. He threw five touchdowns with no interceptions in a 44-16 victory over the Washington Redskins.

That started a run of 20 touchdown passes with one interception over the final seven games. He also rushed for four touchdowns during that span.

Newton's numbers in the recent win over Miami are eerily similar to what he did at this point two years ago. He completed 21 of 35 pass attempts for 254 yards and four touchdowns, compared to 21-of-34 for 246 yards and five touchdowns against Washington.

He also did it without Kelvin Benjamin -- injured in 2015, traded to Buffalo in 2017 -- in both games. He did it with Devin Funchess catching at least one touchdown in both.

He also had help from running back Jonathan Stewart in both. Stewart had 102 yards rushing on 21 carries against Washington. The 30-year-old back had 110 yards on 17 carries against Miami.

But now with 14 touchdown passes to 11 interceptions, he's not far off the pace he was in 2015 after 10 games. He had 15 touchdown passes to nine interceptions at this point then.

So if he were to go on another streak like he had in 2015, he could creep back into the MVP conversation -- but he would need Brady and Wentz to cool off to have a legitimate shot. In all likelihood, he also would need to be instrumental in the Panthers' winning out.

But remember, in 2015, Newton didn't have a touchdown pass or an interception in Game 11, a 33-14 victory at Dallas on Thanksgiving Day. So with another Miami-like performance against the New York Jets on Sunday, the first pick of the 2011 draft actually could be ahead of his MVP pace.

Also now that he’s won it, it will be very hard to win it again unless he’s absolutely the clear cut MVP. They’d much rather give it to Wentz if they were neck and neck,

 You know every time I see that stat it pisses me off because I know people are going to see that and just poo on him when some of those interceptions were not his fault AT ALL

Nope. Those stats are incorrect.

In 2015

20 td and 9 int in his first 10 games.

The headline does not match the article

He had more than 15 TD, and that’s not counting the countless dropped TD we had that season which voters took into account.

He had 21 TD's counting his rushing TD's, and this year he has 19.  It's not that far fetched, I suppose.

If we win out and the Eagles drop a few that changes things.

D Newton also noted that in the 11th game that year Cam had no TDs against the Cowboys (Luke and Kurt were hogging the end zone), if Cam has another game like the Dolphins game this Sunday he’ll be well ahead of his pace in ‘15.
