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

44 posts in this topic

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.

They just said RG3 will come back stronger than ever next season

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.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
