The Myth of Cam Newton under pressure dispelled

117 posts in this topic

Yes and the teams who can actually do that have quarterbacks named Brady, Rodgers or Manning. Or maybe a defense like the Bears. And even then, it happens rarely.

Teams don't win regularly in the NFL when they lose the turnover battle. Never have. Never will. They get lucky sometimes and come back, but most of the times, they end up just like the Panthers. Losers.

Btw, not throwing an interception, doesn't mean you played perfect or mistake free. It just means you are doing what you are supposed to do. There's a big difference between quarterbacks who pass 40-50 times a game and throw an interception and quarterbacks who manage to throw 2 while throwing less than 30 times a game.

The guy with 50 passing attempts can get away with it and still win.

Changing the stat.....now you are referencing losing the turnover battle. Your stat was the Cam throwing a pick stat. QBs win all the time throwing a pick.

Lets use Andy Dalton as the example, he isn't Peyton Manning nor does he throw 50 times a game nor does he have a comically high scoring D.

7 wins in his short career throwing at least 1 INT. One shy of Newton's 8 total wins.

Difference is, Bengals play 3 phases.....not 1. QB can make mistakes.

And yet he still doesn't understand why he isn't taken seriously and why he got banned. -_-

Throwin A pick and having an efficient turnover % are two completely different things.

And just for the record, Cam was at 3.3% interception to pass efficiency last year averaging 32 attempts per game. He's at 3.7% this year, averaging 30. So less attempts, even worse efficiency. He also has 1 more fumble already than he had all of last year.

You just cant win with that kind of turnover problem. Especially when your touchdown to turnover ratio is negative.

And go ahead and look at Andy. Last year he had a 2.5% interception %. They had a winning record and made the playoffs. This year he's having similar issues like Cam. He's averaging 3.5%. They're 4-5.

It's just a fact of football.

You can't beat that one unless your defense's name is Pittsburgh, Chicago or Seattle. No balanced or offense driven team can win like that.

Giants this year. Play 3 phases.

4 of 6 wins Eli has at least 1 INT. 3.0%. There are more examples as well....

Carolina plays 1 phase.....2 are dormant a game. Can't win in the NFL like that unless you have a HOFer in his prime.

But again, I was responding to your Cam throws a single pick we lose stat.....

After a certain level of bad play the specific ranking shouldn't matter. The fact that its only the around 28th best and not 32nd is a pretty small point to make. Most people are not arguing that its literally the worst, but bad enough to be a big factor in poor offensive performance. Which given the stats is true.

The fact is Newton is a 2nd year Qb dealing with a lackluster line and underachieving ground game. That doesn't mean he's blameless. But with context like that its not hard to see why few think Newton is the biggest issue.

Can you post a link to your numbers? They are not checking out with NFL stats that are available from other sites...Especially your rankings...

in 2007 Eli Manning won a Super Bowl with a INT% of 3.8%. Soooo you want to rethink "fact of football" statement?

And that's about the limit CRA. Just about every winning team has a QB with an interception % between 2.5, and 3% at the most.

And let's not act like the Giants don't have an elite defense. They do too. Not to mention, Eli also has a postive TD/TO ratio.

Heck even teams with great defenses need that to win. Look at Joe Flacco:

He's hardly considered elite. But he is one of the winningest QB's in the NFL because his career int% is 2.3%. One of the best there is. Look at any consistently winning team. That's what you will see. Brady, Manning, etc. They all have that stat under control. That stat will be at 3 or under. Most of them hover around 2.5% because in today's NFL, thats where you have to be.

If you were at the game, you would realize it is a combination of line play, quarterback play, and receiver/tight end play. The line needs to hold up, Cam needs to be more away and get the ball out quicker, but most importantly we have to run good routes and get open. There were very few times that I saw a wide receiver open this past week, it was embarrassing.

Those stats mean jack compared to the game we just witnessed. I live in the now. They sucked Sunday. I can care less what the average is of the season, because the average of every thing is that they lose.

:D

Years in which Brett Favre had INT% over 3.5% while in GB:

1993: 4.6% 9-7

1998: 4.2% 11-5

1999: 3.9% 8-8

2003: 4.5% 10-6

2005: 4.8% 4-12

Giants have an elite DL.....not elite defense. They are a matchup nightmare for a few teams. Often teams, have little issue with that D. See this year and last year for your examples.

Eli has 12 TDs and 11INTs. A pick away from being even. Just like Andrew Luck, who has only one more TD pass than INT (and just like Eli the bulk of his winning record has come from games he has a pick).

One game can flip that ratio the opposite way.

Also, when evaluating Newton last year it is intellectually dishonest to ignore his 35 TDs vs 19 turnovers. He plays the game too differently.
