Supercam Led All Qbs In Broken Tackles And Houdini Acts Last Season.

Cam Newton easily led all quarterbacks in broken tackles for the second straight season, going up from 20 in 2012 to 25 last year. There are two kinds of broken tackles for quarterbacks: standard broken tackles on runs past the line of scrimmage, and what Bill Simmons calls "Houdinis," plays where a quarterback escaped a possible sack. Joe Flacco, oddly enough, makes the top ten after we recorded zero broken tackles in 2012.

Only because Vick & Peter Griffin's nephew were injured.tongue.png

F*** that. if I had to depend on a qb in the open field to get things done when he has no other options........

I'm going with Cam over RG3 and Vick. Cam knows when to get down or run out of bounds. It's why he still makes exciting plays, but has never missed a game.

That's because RGIII was injured.

Cam's like a fat slower RGIII.

Reading is fundamental.
