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.

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

    • Christian McCaffrey is a special athlete. His ability as a runner and slot receiver make him one of the most dynamic football threats in the league. His contributions to the Stanford offense have been tremendous, and he's had a big workload to boot. However, many of the naysayers talk of McCaffrey not being able to handle an NFL workload. They say his body would not be able to handle the rigors of what the NFL will throw at him.  A look into McCaffrey's workout routine shows he just may be able to handle it. http://www.stack.com/a/how-christian-mccaffrey-built-his-body-to-withstand-one-of-the-biggest-workloads-in-college-football McCaffrey seems to put himself through super workouts to keep himself in shape. I have no doubt McCaffrey will be able to enter the NFL with his body ready and tested to face the rigors of the NFL. What do you think? Will McCaffrey be ready for the rigors of the NFL?
    • I know right? People wasting their breath when Gary Johnson was the superior candidate last election. 
    • There's a lot of Wilson supporters from State so I don't want to get them all riled up, but Wilson is OVERRATED. He always has been, his style of play is fundamentally unsustainable because it relies on getting lucky when things completely go to poo. You know what usually happens when things go to poo in the NFL? You get sacked or picked.    Further adding to my dislike for Wilson is the fake persona he has built. He's a shill that stops at nothing to protect his golden boy image. That's just a personal pet peeve of mine. Say what you want about Cam but at least he's himself.
