If you want to use examples, how about Vick and RG3 then? Just because Young was fortunate enough to avoid torn ACLs and concussions doesn't mean Cam will. Get that through your thick head. If Newton goes down on a run-designed play, then our season is lost and the fanbase will erupt in volcanic rage, and question the coaching staff for a bone-headed maneuver.
Neither of them are built to be outside the pocket....that matters. But more importantly, most of their injuries have occurred as passer, in the pocket.
Our season is over if a poo G lets a defender through and they take out Newton's knee. Which seemed to be a legit risk every other play last year. At least as a runner, Cam can make a choice to engage in contact and he never does except in short yardage.
It's football. Poo happens. Cam has taken the most shots while in the pocket....not running. Coaches have been sure to point that out. RGIII popped his knee in the pocket. Vick gets knocked out of games all the time....in the pocket.
The Vick comparisons and RGIII comparisons just don't work....too many differences.
