Cam Newton for back up QB?


Recommended Posts

Our new backup more than likely has familiarity with Arthur Smith's offensive system.  It makes more sense to bring in a guy with this knowledge for two reasons.  One, it speeds up MR2 learning curve of terminology and overall scheme.  And two, if Matt gets hurt, the backup rolls in with knowledge of the system and hopefully can still be successful.

Cam won't get any offers to be a starter but could go to a competitive situation like potentially Philly as they will probably bring in someone to compete with Hurts.  It wouldn't shock me if he had a reclamation season.  Sometimes hitting rock bottom will light a fire under you see Mike Vick.

Ryan has missed three games his entire career.  He’s started 205/208, or 99%.  I think it’s humorous how concerned people are about the backup QB spot when they more than likely won’t even see the field other than preseason and garbage time.

But, isn’t it all garbage time for every game Matt Ryan has ever played in? /s

Please don’t ban me! :ninja:

Prior to the Jets game in week 17, Cam had 5 passing TDs his other 14 games. I’ll pass on him. Unlike Ryan, Cam is an actual example of a QB who is done. 

Ryan cannot get us over the hump wakeup. We need a watson or a mahomey

Well in one case you’re asking for the most talented QB in nfl history who got pummeled with no help in the SB and then in the other you named a QB who lead a team to a 4-12 season but will somehow be the difference for this team turning into a SB contender.
