What are you talking about? The defense failed Cam plenty of times these last two years. Granted, Newton hasn't been perfect but there's games where he has orchestrated a great 80 yard drive to bring them The Panthers back but then the defense can't stop the opposing offense and hold on.
• RG3 benefitted from the Eagle, Giant and Cowboy implosion. I doubt he'll be leading that squad into the playoffs next year.
• Wilson and Kaep pretty much landed on teams that already featured an elite level defenses and great OLs.
• Luck had a soft schedule (deserves credit however). The AFC is where the NFC was in a couple years back. Had Big Ben been healthy, I don't know if The Colts would have gotten the final spot.
Cam made his share of mistakes but his surrounding cast didn't do him any favors either (that includes Special Teams and the coaching staff).
