Jason Taylor: Chalk up last year as a sophmore slump for Newton

2011: TD - 35 (21 passing), INT - 17, Comp% - 60%, QBR - 84.5

2012: TD - 27 (19 passing), INT - 12, Comp% - 57.7%, QBR - 86.2

Cam had a massive rookie season. The best by a rookie QB. And still ended up with only 2 less passing TDs and 5 less INTs in 2012 compared to 2011. Yeah his completion percentage took a little bit of a hit, but his quarterback rating went up by 2 points. And if they are looking at wins for QBs, he had 1 more win in 2012 than 2011. His numbers are almost identical to his rookie year. The only big difference is he had more rushing TDs his rookie season than last year. So is that the phantom slump they are talking about?

I wonder how many people will predict, like they did for Cam last year, to have the sophomore slump when mentioning Luck, RG3 and Wilson. My guess it only applied to Cam.

I agree that the bar has been set very low for NFL analysts. What irritates me is they can create any bs story they want and then the public begins to believe them.

FTR, I hope last year was a slump, because if it were, once he gets out of this "slump" poo is going to get real! Not only that, just shows how high he set his standards.

If that's a slump, he'll be a sure hof if he gets over the hump.

He had a very rough start, that's about it. I wouldn't call this a slump though.

And what's also irritating is if some *** like Luck had a total of 27 TDs overall and 12 INTs, ESPN would be all over his jock calling him the best QB of all time.

Nah, they would just say how lucky he is or that the defense or some other crap that has carried the team.
