The Best Deep Ball QBs of 2014


Ricky Spanish

To the good part that we care about on page 2:

 

 

 

Cam Newton is an interesting case. He got screwed over by his receivers dropping some excellent passes or not being on the same page, yet has been able to stand on his own in spite of this. While not an excellent deep ball passer, Newton’s film was a nice surprise.

 

Nothing we didn't already know, but it's nice to see we aren't crazy in thinking the guy just needs a little bit of help. Interesting look for all the QBs

 

Talk amongst yourselves.

Yep, Cam throws a very good deep ball, we just had no one to go get them last year.  I think people underestimate just how big it is for us to get Ginn back.  Not only for returns, but also as a WR.  I'm not trying to oversell Ginn as a WR.  He's never going to be a great WR, but the one thing he does well as a WR is the biggest thing our WR corps lacked last year.

 

I do think that we're looking for a field stretcher to pair with KB.  I really, really, REALLY like Jaelen Strong, but I think we're probably looking for a guy like the above mentioned Devin Smith to put opposite KB.

But but but! Drew Brees is regressing! His arm is a wet noodle! He can't get the ball deep!

Don't worry, they'll draft another receiver in the first round again. Instead of worrying about their real problems like defense and their awful offensive line.

id rather them keep getting offense when their defense is a huge problem

It's really a mixed bag with Cam. I can't always tell if he's throwing the ball away or if it's an errant deep pass. KB caught a few balls out of bounds that looked like Cam just ran out of room to put the ball. Maybe KB didn't give enough room but I'm no scout.

I've always said Cam is an inaccurate deep ball thrower. When I say deep ball, I'm talking receivers running a 9 route type deep ball, not balls of 16+ yards. I'm talking 20-25 or more downfield when I talk about his inaccuracy. Nice to know this year he was at least better than average.
