In Topic: Is Cam Newton Really A Franchise QB

Yesterday, 08:06 PM

Clearly some you Panther's fans want a white quarterback.  That's what a lot of you guys are really driving at with your idiotic threads, posts, etc attempting to criticize Cam.  All the hatred that gets heaped on you guys is fully warranted.  The same asshats who make excuses for guys like Sam Bradford will be the same guys not giving Cam an inch of wiggle room.  You guys are pathetic.  Seriously, kill yourselves.

 

Silly.
 
Look at Andy Dalton.
 
Last year he threw for nearly 1000 more yards than Newton.
 
He accounted for over 500 yards more total offense than Newton.
 
He accounted for more total TD's than Newton.
 
And he had exactly the same NFL passer rating as Newton: 88.8
 
Both Dalton and Newton were drafted the same year and both have started for 3 seasons.
 
Dalton's career passer rating: 85.7
Newton's career passer rating: 86.4
 
Dalton has led the Bengals to the playoffs all 3 of his seasons as a starter.
 
Newton has turned the trick once.
 
Yet Cincinnati fans fall into two basic camps where Dalton is concerned: about half think he is garbage, the other half thinks he is OK to mediocre.
 
NFL coaches and GM's rated Dalton the 19th best QB in the League heading into this season.

The question is completly legitimate. That's why it generates such over the top contempt among certain Huddle members.
 
Newton was ranked as the 15th or 16th best QB in the league this year by NFL GM's and scouts.
 
He has never finished higher than 15th in NFL passer rating.
 
He has never finished higher than 14th in Total QBR.
 
He is still young and can obviously improve, but the "breakthrough" season as a consistent pocket QB has not yet materialized.
 
Certainly his mobility gives him a boost, but how long will that continue ?
 
He will be 26 next season with a lot of miles on the odometer. 
 
It will be an interesting dynamic as he seeks a long term contract with a ton of guaranteed money up front.

Where this really falls short is trying to make us feel bad about losing LaFell.

 

Of course you are right.

 

The Patriots are notorious for signing guys who can't play.

Gators fan???

 

LOL...actually, I am a 'Noles fan. 

 

I like Benjamin He has a lot of upside and could be a really, really solid wideout...maybe even great with time...but it's going to take time for him to evolve into anything near an elite receiver, IMHO. He tends to get a little lazy in his routes as well. 

 

I have to laugh at people talking about Smitty and LaFell's drops, though.

 

These people must have never seen KB play in a real game.

 

The guy drops a LOT of balls.

 

I believe, statistically, he dropped nearly 10 percent of the catchable passes thrown his way last year. 

 

Of course his size allows him to grab some balls others would like miss.

 

We will see. It is just very unusual for a rookie receiver to come in and put up really big numbers in their first year.

 

Hard to see big time improvement from this receiving group, add the uncertainty on the offensive line and Carolina might be in for another long year offensively.

 

There is one wonderful thing about the NFL, though.

 

History has proven If your defense is good enough...you can win the Super Bowl.

 

Even with a lackluster offense.

and yet you are doing it, even taking time to get stats for your posts.

I am doing it because another member started the comparison and made the ludicrous statement that the Panthers would have gone 8-8 with Manning as their QB last year. I mean, I realize this forum is notorious for the gross hyperbole of its memebers, but some nonsense just has to be answered.

 

Happy 4th of July everyone...I gots beer to drink ...
