James, remember that time you said Blaine Gabbert was better than Cam? That's why no one takes you seriously.
Not sure I'll ever live that one down. Though it is one of those things that has kind of spun out and away from the truth by several degrees.
If you actually look at what I wrote pre-draft, I said that Newton had far and away the higher ceiling, and the far greater chance to be 'great', but I was very unsure about whether he could correct his mechanics at the next level, and become a true pocket passer.
Thankfully for all of us the organization took a risk that I wouldn't have -- at least playing armchair GM.
FWIW, I still think Gabbert has a future -- just needs to get away from that dumpster fire in Jacksonville. He always needed 1-2 years to sit before starting, and never should have been put in year-one. At least that's the way I see it.
