Cam Newton polls as NFL's most underrated QB by defensive players

Recommended Posts

Cam Newton may never get the respect of certain talk show personalities. People in the know recognize that he’s one of the league’s top talents, though. Specifically, the guys who are tasked with stopping him.

According to an anonymous poll conducted by writers at the Athletic, 14 percent of defensive players think Newton is the NFL’s most underrated quarterback, more than any other QB. The poll included answers from 85 defensive players from 25 teams. The always criminally overlooked Philip Rivers came in next with 11 percent of the vote, followed by Alex Smith at eight percent. Apparently, Russell Wilson, Mitch Trubisky, Lamar Jackson and oddly enough even Drew Brees got a share of the vote.

I know it’s a small vote but how the hell would Drew Brees get any vote of underrated?

Cam gets plenty of respect.  It’s not him, it’s his shoulder.

More than a few defenses we played this season flat out stated they weren’t concerned with anything past ten yards, game planned for it, and were extremely effective doing it.

Not true at all whatsoever. The stadium on game day is about 75% Cam jerseys. The fan base I’d say more than doubled drafting him as well...

I can see it when comparing him to say Manning and Rodgers. You don’t here Brees discussed in the elite guys as much as he should be. Rodgers gets his balls licked by every announcer. Rodgers is obviously a good QB but he’s played 4 years less than Brees and would need 8000 yards and 46 TDs per year in the next 4 years to catch Brees.

now if only the FO had the same respect. 

 

some of  you want to bring up racist fans, but the FO has run Cam into the ground more than the few assholes who don't know what they have/had.
