Either way it is "clearly obvious" Newton isn't ready. I mean they are going to work on his mechanics so CLEARLY he sucks :rolleyes:


I never said Newton was ready...he won't be (most aren't). But he will be a better option than Clausen (which is all I have said).

Cam needs a lot of work in the passing game. But he can already do some very good things. Clausen is more consistant with certain throws.....but he has shown virtually no ability to create any offense with those throws while with Carolina (camp, preseason, games, and back to camp again).

FWIW, here's this dummy's 0.02 :

Clausen:
-accurate
-better under center
-poor posture...stance too wide, 3/4 delivery, plays smaller than his 6'2" frame
-very conservative with progressions and decisions
-lacks consistency with 20y+ routes to run the offense, as designed
-lacks confidence in his own ability to make throws in tights windows

Newton:
-not very fluid from under center
-not stepping into all throws
-still struggles with multiple reads
-nice touch on corner, post and fade routes
-excellent vision and size
-can make 20y+ throws under duress, in and out of pocket, with relative ease
-not afraid to take risks

Anderson:
-gives good pressers in Arizona


Lot of questions will reveal answers over the next couple weeks. It's definitely a heated battle. My edge goes to Newton.

only thing I disagree with is you need to change that from 20y to 10y+ for Clausen.
