Former Patriots Coach Weighs In On Cam Newton, Jarrett Stidham Battle

Scarnecchia weighed in recently on Stidham and Newton. Interesting stuff...
“I think [Newton] has a huge edge, because of what he’s done in the league. The guy was an MVP [in 2015]. We played against him a number of times, have a huge respect for him as a player and leader, and the things he’s done. This guy, from a skill set, a lot different from guys we’ve had in there at quarterback over the years,” he told Medow. “[Jarrett] Stidham has great feet and ability to move and avoid the rush, and create and do a lot of similar things. I don’t think he’s to Cam’s skill set, but this guy is a pretty good player. He also has a tremendous work ethic and he’s a smart guy. I know this, you have to be a smart guy to play quarterback in that system. Having said all that, the cupboard is not half empty by any means. I think there is a lot of enthusiasm. The situation looks a lot different than it did two months ago.”

It will be super easy for Newton to win it. Barely an inconvenience.

I’m rooting for Stidham, but I think Newton wins it. IF Stidham somehow wins it, it would be a great sign for him and his future as an NFL QB.

Because of his rookie contract I'm pulling for Stidham to be the GOAT 2.0, but I think that I have a better chance of convincing my wife to move to Utah and welcoming a second wife into the family than Stidham has of winning the QB battle this year.

I think it's a coin flip.

Any thoughts on why Scarnecchia chose to make the observation which is highlighted in red?

We are in the game, I like this post! I'm excited for the competition. I believe Stidham has the slight advantage as he has experience with the Pats playbook. But who knows with BB maybe Hoyer will be out there wk 1 lol.

Good point.

Does this give Stidham an edge in the competition for the starting job?
No, he was giving Cam praise a few sentences before he said that.

Reading between the lines it seems clear to me Cam is QB1 if healthy. No question. They still love Stidham.

Cam is here bc ...
1)the team friendly deal they were able to reach

2)his unique skill set still adds up to a top 10-12 QB when he's able to play

Not bc they don't believe in Stidham. He could use the competition and gets a real "break in" year with a real chance at playing time bc of Cam's history.

Since the merger, eight quarterbacks have left the team where they won an MVP for a new one (Manning, McNair, Favre, Warner, Montana, Esiason, Bert Jones and Stabler). All of them began the season as the starter for their new team. Brady and Newton make the ninth and tenth such players. Cam not being the starter, barring injury, is historically unprecedented and unlikely.

Will be interesting to watch it play out.

If BB successfully subjugates Cam and they can stay on the same page the resulting production could be...

BB saw how this season would be problematic especially for a new QB and went out and got a proven experienced QB in Newton.

Under normal circumstances with a complete practice regimen and all preseason games, Stidham had a legit shot to be the opening day QB. But thats not the case.
