Cam Newton/Kyle Allen

Recommended Posts

Has nobody given the thought of the Colts potentially poaching one of the Panthers' QB's next year. Ideally, Cam Newton.

 

I know he is injured A LOT, but I think he still has a lot left in the tank. He is better than Brissett, and could get us to the promise land with a great overall team. 
 

If they decide to keep Cam; Kyle Allen? IMO, he more potential than Brissett, so maybe we could swing a trade for him?

Agreed. He is the prototypical "Take away his running ability and what are you left with?" QB.

 

You're left with a poor pocket passer, who is more likely now to get frustrated, (without his mobility) and blame others (diva QB).

And this is precisely the reason I thought an earlier suggestion the Bears should pick him up was a great idea. He'd fit right in with the history of their passing game.

 

Oh, and, I'm not sure Allen is an upgrade to what we're experiencing now.

I don't think he was/is a horrible QB. The guy won an MVP, and has had an average coach IMO. 
 

He isn't an elite QB, but we need somebody who can at least push the ball downfield. If healthy, I think he can do that. Probably won't happen anyways, but we're too good of a team to wait 2-3 years for good QB play.

Von Miller broke him in Super Bowl 50. Before then he was an above average Quarterback.

Rap sheet is reporting today that they will be listening to trade offers this offseason.  Bleacher Report followed up with an article today listing five teams as potential landing spots.  The Colts being a team who they think is a Franchise QB away from being a contender and they think Cam could be that missing piece.  They have us giving up our 1st and a 5th rd future pick.  We have plenty of cap space to take on his contract.  Behind our line?  Interesting thought.

I read and the writer needs to put the bong down. Cam for a 1st Rounder is hilarious.

Yeah, I think it's more plausible he signs as a free agent when his contract is voidable this offseason. I would rather have a healthy Cam than a JB. I like Brissett as a guy, his leadership, and his grit... but he's very slow on his reads/decision making which is hard to teach in the NFL.

So, shift to a QB with a below career passing pct of 60%. Lol

    • Fromm seems like a career backup   I think Eason is a better candidate for the tier 2 QBs 
    • Not sure what you have seen during college or post college to determine that one Qb is a game manager and another other is not.  The physicality prism?     All the Qb can do is to see where to throw the ball, then throw it there accurately. The WRs have to go unscripted too, and find an open spot, or a spot that he can be lead to.      After 5 seconds from the snap of the ball, whether the Qb makes that decision and throws the ball from the pocket or by running to the right hash mark doesn't matter, other than being on the right hash mark provides half as many opportunities to see where to throw the ball and throw it there accurately.   If unscripted means that my $125 mil Qb is carrying the team by making 25 yard scrambles for TDs, and is treated as a runner, I don't want that.  Its pretty to watch and nice to have, but its not really what the Qb position is about, IMO.
    • I believe Reich has shown that he adjusts his offense to his QBs style, Therefore it's most important to get the best QB we can draft, instead of getting the best fit for a certain system   To me Fromm is like Gordon who has a lot to prove (if not more because he had a way more talented team). I keep hearing how smart he is but, Fitzpatrick is one of the smartest QBs to play the game and I wouldn't want him on our team, If we drafted him though I wouldn't trade back into the 1st for him because that would mean at least 3-4 QBs were taken and we could get him with one of our second rnd picks.          
    • The scrambling ability is not why I don’t want Fromm. I want a guy that can put a team on his shoulders when things aren’t going right.  A game manager is not going to give us a team that can compete with Mahomes the next decade. The ability to make plays unscripted though is something that is important in the NFL today with players getting faster. Having a QB that can go off script when a play breaks down is huge.
    • Jones is who I want...even if it's a franchise and trade.   As for DEs...I would look at Clowney. Would step right in and replace Sheard.
