In the Starting Line-Up
Why does everyone want the corpse of Cam Newton? Yes he USED TO BE a good quarterback. THREE YEARS AGO he was a good quarterback. And you have to stretch the word "good" pretty far to make that true because he was maddeningly inconsistent and his Panthers teams were the most unpredictable/undependable squad in the entire history of the NFL.If we're going to bring in someone, bring in Cam who is a much better QB and patsfans.com will run a lot faster because certain fans will quit watching the team for some reason.
Right now you aren't even getting a shell of his former self, just a guy with a surgically salvaged arm who can run a little but not like he used to, and never had the skill or the smarts to succeed without an elite arm.
Like I said, I'd happily sign Newton as a 3rd string RB, asking for a big league full time QB out of the guy is just begging for trouble. It's the last thing Bill Belichick would actually do. He might or might not sign Dalton, the man isn't touching Newton with a 14 1/2 foot pole.
