    The problem with Lamar is that with one minute left and no timeouts there are 20+ QB's that are better than him. Cam Newton at his best had the same problem. There are some situations where running ability just doesn't make up for being a below average passer. Those scenarios come up in the playoffs.

    Thatís more Fran TarkentonÖLamar does his dancing behind the LOS here and there , but the read option , one cut and go stuff is his bread and butter . Heís in a class of his own there.

    If Lamar regresses , it wonít be because heís missing Dobbins . I know everyone is holding their breath waiting for him to become a RB or shred his knee, but I see a player whoís already a top talent at the position and has plenty of room to improve

    I'd like to see what 20+ QBs you have ahead of Lamar in a two-minute scenario. 10? sure, but 20??

    He needs more/better opportunities to pass and better decision making for sure, but I don't think below average passers lead the league in passing TDs.

    Fair enough. FWIW, I still have them ahead of the Browns in the division until I see otherwise.

    Off the top of my head Mahomes, Rodgers, Brady, Wilson, Watson, Allen, Stafford, Murray, Prescott, Carr, Ryan, Tannehill, Mayfield, Cousins, Garappolo, Herbert and Burrow offer more than Lamar in a no pass scenario. Maybe Big Ben, Fitzgerald, Goff
    too. Looking at the rookies, Jones, Wilson and Lawrence might be there soon.

    People always talk about how a QB that can run adds a dimension that is hard to defend. But when an offense needs the threat of the run to be effective you have a different set of problems. When you're down 10 with 5 minutes left, or you're down 4 with 1 minute left and 1 timeout, the other team doesn't care if you can get 7 yds a carry. They welcome it.

    Holy shit... I don't think anyone saw the release of Cam Newton by the Patriots coming this morning!

    I bet Cam still has a job with the Pats if he had gotten the vax. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

    Hoyer's been around for a long time and is arguably a better resource for Mac than Cam (based on playing style).

    yep.

    it's also possible BB came to him and said I'm starting the kid, are you ok being a backup, and released him out of respect when he said no.

    Well if Mac doesn't work out, I don't think Fitzmagic has played with the Pats yet, so he might be available next season.

    Most of these guys are available and all have prior starting QB experience:

    This is probably the case. The guy is at the stage of his career where he probably wants to hang onto a starting job somewhere and show that he can still get it done. Playing backup to a rookie probably isn't a good fit.

    Maybe his resume would look better if he hadn't gotten COVID last year and didn't have to quarantine and sit out this preseason. Oh well. He's probably just done due to age and injury history.

    Can we talk about this for a minute?

    I don't follow high school sports by any means but this story is just too bizarre to pass up. A made up online "school" with a football program that isn't recognized by Ohio HS Athletic Association that somehow conned their way onto ESPN against AAU University with what sounds like a 30 man roster? Now the coach has a warrant out for his arrest for something related to unpaid hotel bills for the team? They had a former player's dad on the radio this morning and the whole thing just sounds beyond crooked and dangerous for the kids.

    I'm sure there will be a 30 for 30 on it soon.

    Yeah, that whole thing is beyond messed up. It just raises so many questions about how these "athletics schools" get away with the kids not even really going to school. Then if the kids do go on to college, do they even have a verifiable GPA coming out of these "high schools".

    IMG Academy in Florida is $85k per year tuition. I wonder how many of those students go pro? My guess is not many. I'm having trouble thinking of an NFL player who came from a super wealthy family that could afford such tuition...oh yeah, Johnny Manziel.

    If Cam signs as back up for that team in Dallas, I will be forced to move on. It was fun while it lasted, Cameron Jerrell Newton (well, it was fun for like 3 seasons).

    Not likely.. unless he gets vaccinated. Dallas GM along with other GMs are basically requiring vaccinations. I still think Cam gets picked up by another team and that Cam was released due to being a back up and not covid.

    If gets vaccinated, I hope he signs with WFT. The press conferences would be great: Cam in his shiny $50k suits and Fitzmagic looking like a bearded hobo.

    Yes. This is bizarre and I am definitely watching the 30 for 30. How does this happen in the age of internets?

    I am also all in for this. Go ahead and make this happen please.

    Also, I finally figured out how to multiquote in the app. You should definitely judge me based on the fact that it took me about 2 years to figure it out.
