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

44 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

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.

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.

Only time I watch ESPN is NFL32 after work. It's usually alright, but when Taylor and/or Bruschi is on, it turns to sh**. Nothing else was on today. Now I regret it.

I wouldn't call it a slump. He stuggled but his OL and the coaching affected his play more than adjustments by defenses. After all, Cam's streak without a turnover was within the same season.

Yea he has identical numbers with Chud running the read option as a base. Just imagine what he would have put up if Chud didn't go full retard.

Agreed. I don't know what the hell Chud was thinking with preventing Cam to audible at the line. His playcalling was headscratching, to say the least.

This is why this draft should be about protecting Cam and getting him weapons. Tired of him getting disrespected

He's always going to get disrespected. There's no point in pandering to haters. Let them believe he's Vince Young 2.0, or whatever the hell they want to believe about Cam. We, panther fans, know what type of athletic freak Newton is at the QB position.

Cam is already the face of the franchise but he brings a ton of criticism from his past and 'diva' demeanor. Who gives a **** what other fans say?
