Interesting quote here. Anyone care to guess the date it was written?
"Newton has been a force, a game-changer, and despite the criticism he's faced—some of it earned, some of it not—he will go down as one of the dominant players of his generation. Most people with a shred of football knowledge and an ounce of honesty know this.
Yet it's also true that at times Newton looks spent. He's been hurt, sure, but that doesn't seem to be the problem. More and more Newton appears a bit sluggish on the edges, where he once routinely destroyed defenses. Newton's never been extremely accurate, but some of his passes are shockingly errant nowadays.
It's always dangerous to doubt Newton. He could follow his bad game against the XXX's by torching the Buccaneers. Again, he's not soft.
But he also may be breaking down.
And there may be nothing anyone can do about it but watch."
