I said he can only be fairly evaluated with a QB who can throw downfield....
Campbell era isn't the time frame to judge him...he was a rookie/sophomore with a QB who struggles going to WRs.
Again, if Campbell went DOWNFIELD so much more than Palmer and was good at it....the WR corps numbers wouldn't of doubled and tripled under Palmer. Which they did.
Going downfield POORLY....and having pass attempts to nowhere b/c you suck.....doesn' t mean anything.
Here is your arguement.....Jimmy Clausen launched 10 balls downfield. Cam Newton threw 7. Jimmy throws downfield better than Cam.
I never made the argument that attempts means your better. Feel free to show the post where.
I used attempts to counter your argument that he doesn't throw the ball downfield. Furthermore I said attempt percentage. ( How many attempts deep per dropback ).
This would be the equlivent analogy:
Newton throws a deep attempt percentage of 16.6. Clausen throws 7.8 percentage . Therfore Newton throws the ball deep more often then Clausen.
I said Campbell was more successfull because he had a higher completion percentage on deep throws then Palmer.
The equlivent analogy:
Newton completes 66.7 percent of his deep throws. Clausen completes 60.7 of his. Therefore Newton is more succesfull at throwing deep balls.
