Ron Jaworski thinks Cam Newton is the 18th best QB in football.

Recommended Posts



First of all, Cam did not play that well in the first half of the season due to reasons including but not limited Chud's heavy use of the read option instead the traditional run game. But also, Cam was indecisive on most of those reads to be honest and held on to the ball for too long. He played lights out in the second half tho.

 

I wonder what the ranking is based on. It'll most likely be wins which to me is not entirely rational. Lets take an example of RG3. He threw for 3200yds and a total of 27 TD. Cam threw for 3869yd (on more attempts though) with 27 total TD. Both QBs have similar production (and we even beat the Redskins when we met) but somehow our TEAM could not make the playoffs. That should tell you wins are not necessarily a good metric to use to compare QBs because it is a TEAM effort.

I think 14-18 range is about right, I would like to see the whole list.  But I dont think Cam is a top 10 QB, he is in the middle of the pack.  

 

IMO, a lot of it has to do with what we have on offense and who we had as an OC.... I believe a lot of Cam's woes are growing pains, weak OL and no real #2 WR.....

Jaws is a genius, we are posting about him on a message board because of the way he rated the players and a lot of people here are going to watch it because of reading this thread.  Everyone except whoever's QB finishes number one will be butt hurt and talk about him even more.

Is this where we all get mad about Cam's spot on an arbitrary list again?

 

I don't think so.

 

But it certainly is where those who make their hay whining about what others may post come in.

As a pure passer somewhere between 15-20 is reasonable based on last year. As a total quarterback he is higher. What I like is that he wont be complacent amd if he cares about lists it will fire him up. That is a good thing. If he doesnt then who cares.

Cam is the only QB ever that had to come in and win a superbowl in his first 2 years to get any credibility. This was already understood.
