The Misunderstood Cam Newton: Game Manager or Game Changer?

The Content Clickbait King throne is Cam Newton’s. A former MVP, Heisman Trophy winner, national champion, and Super Bowl competitor, Newton feels flack for naming Brock Purdy, Dak Prescott, Jared Goff, and Tua Tagovailoa as game managers. Returning fire at Newton is a fruitless effort. The MVP of 2015, Newton was high-risk, high-reward, until shoulder injuries caused limitations. The quarterbacks he criticized as game managers should be re-evaluated, if compared to Newton or Josh Allen. Most of them put up impressive numbers. The comparison calls for a blind résumé test. Spoiler alert: Alex Smith, Cam Newton, and a young Tom Brady shine through the answers. Newton made vast production despite turnovers. Newton is explosive and highly flammable, like any dynamic quarterback. The perception of Purdy as a Darryl Philbin-caliber warehouse manager is understandable. He is a superhero in a down year of quarterbacks, showcasing a stable and trustworthy steward of the Dolphins’ attack. Game manager shouldn’t be an insult. It’s a badge of honor.
