excerpt:

 

Because of 2012's quarterback class, Cam Newton and Andy Dalton became forgotten men. Last year's "class" flashed in in the same vein as 2004 and 1983. Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson emerged as viable superstars, Ryan Tannehill appeared to be potential franchise quarterback material and Colin Kaepernick -- technically a sophomore but lumped with this crew anyway -- nearly won a Super Bowl.

 

This year, though, the 2012 rookies of note are taking the power back. Specifically Dalton and Newton, who are having breakout seasons midway through 2013. Neither guy "struggled" in 2012, but the perception that they fell behind the Lucks and Wilsons of the world was definitely out there.

 

None of this is to say that last year's "Big Four Five" (I'm adding Tannehill for my own selfish purposes; he belongs there anyway) aren't good. Luck and Wilson are having particularly strong seasons. But as you can see in the table below, Dalton and Newton started to establish themselves over the first half of this season as premiere NFL quarterbacks.

I would take the 2011 class over the 2012 class right now.

Kaep, Cam, and Dalton are better than Luck, RG3, and Wilson.

yeah, i kind of get an idea that may be some long time debate over which class is better.

 

no doubt which one was hyped more.

RG3 is slumped for sure.  While I think his knee definately hurt his progression for this season, I think he has been figured out as a QB and won't survive in the NFL imo.

Can the media stop comparing and judging new QBs.  They're just doing this so fans of these young QBs can argue over whose wangs are bigger.  No one did this every week QB judging with the past QB classes.  People used to wait whole seasons before they'd critique individuals.  Nowadays its on a week to week basis.  You can't judge QBs who don't play in a vacuum, on a week-to-week basis.  Some have good teams, play weak schedules, have moronic OCs, have injured players/lack of talent, etc.   

 

Just wait, Newton will be one of the best, I believe it, but at the same time, I don't have to put down the other QBs to believe this.
