Colin Cowherd: Stop Acting Like Cam Newton is Still a Great Quarterback

Colin Cowherd: “Don’t get deeply imbedded into beliefs. Be willing to get new information and move off those beliefs, or the perception will become reality. The 'perception' of watching Cam Newton in college, and then watching him up to his MVP year is that he's a great football player. The 'REALITY' is that ever since the MVP season he’s not as good as Tyrod Taylor and that’s why the Chargers didn’t want him… Tyrod has won MORE since that MVP season, has no drama, is 100% healthy, is low maintenance, mature, and is a very easy distributor of the football… I talked to two executives last week that said they think something is messed up with Cam’s arm. He hasn't throw it the last four years like he used to… Since the MVP, Cam is simply AVERAGE.” (Full Video Above)

Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks the Los Angeles Chargers were right to stick with veteran quarterback Tyrod Taylor as their starting quarterback, as it looks like the team is moving towards keeping Philip Rivers’ former backup as their QB1 heading into the 2020 season no matter what happens in the upcoming NFL Draft.

A lot of pundits around the NFL have made strong takes concerning the team going after free agent Cam Newton, not only as a possible stopgap on a team loaded with offensive weapons, but as a guy who could reinvigorate a disillusioned franchise who has had a tough time transitioning from San Diego.

Check out the video above, however, as Colin details why Cam has simply been an ‘average’ quarterback in the four full seasons since his magical MVP run in 2015, and explains why he would rather have Tyrod Taylor, who at the very worst is no worse than Cam at this point in their careers.
