Cam Newton: Best First Two Seasons Ever

158 posts in this topic

honestly I have to give those first two seasons to Dan Marino... I don't think wins are solely on a QB but I don't think you can just ignore them completely, either. What Dan did in those first two seasons - given the nature of the league - wow.

I love Cam and I think what he has done is simply amazing, and I don't think it detracts from his accomplishments to say maybe he's second best.

I would take 2003-07 Jake over rookie and soph Cam in the 4th Q. Call him lucky, but he got in done. So will Cam with time, but we are in the playoffs thia year with Jake.

This is quite possibly the most overlooked situation on the team. What an absolutely brilliant point! Jake would toss those wounded ducks to the heavens and when Smitty couldnt make a play, the Mighty mighty Kasay would step to the plate and crush it. Mare, Medlock, nor Gano can hold Kasay's jock.

Matt Moore and Clausen had Kasey...and Smitty..

Have to disagree. With no running game and an o-line playing like crap? We would have been seeing a lot of bad Jake. Like maybe 25 interceptions and a half dozen sack/fumbles is what I would envision.

clutch play also has a lot to do with being put in great position to be clutch and help...

A lot of games Cam winning opportunities have been pooty scenarios.

Plus Delhomme couldn't even get to the 4th this year with as much on his shoulders as Cam has

Matt Moore had a winning record 2 out of 3 years his number was called

Clausen isn't a NFL QB

still think Marino had the better 2 first seasons overall, even if purely based on stats one can make an argument for Cam... there is more to the game than just stats. That's not to say that Cam hasn't had one of the best first two seasons ever, he has - but I don't think his two seasons are as good as those Marino had.

Jake had an old Stephen Davis and Deshaun "my acl hurts" foster. The running game from those days was so overrated. The line...well...I wont argue that..

One note about Marino: he was drafted by a Dolphins team coming off a Super Bowl trip. Cam went to the 2-14 Panthers.
