Have to disagree, a lot of people may not like Newton the person but there's no way he's mediocre as a QB.

I just don't like Palmer in a big game. Cardinals kinda self destructing~

I think Newton is a pretty dynamic QB...would love to have him.

Agree. He has absolutely improved as a QB. Doesn't hurt to have a perfect system designed for him, either.

Palmer's pick there was the definition of trying to "force it." It wasn't there. Nice pick by Coleman, the safety the Vikes didn't want.

@eric_j_thompson We're potentially two weeks away from both Tarvaris Jackson and Joe Webb having rings.

What's up with Brady not having a captains patch?

Edit Apparently it's optional

It's a shame they blew that game against ATL

Others have stated that Cam's not mediocre, and I agree with them.

But their line is very solid. I kept watching Ryan Kalil, Matt's brother, as he pulled and absolutely leveled guys down field opening up huge holes for Newton. That guy can play. I wish his brother played that nasty.

In some alternate universe the Vikings surprised everyone and drafted Luke Kuechly instead of Matt Kalil.

Ryan is a monster. With healthy knees.

Wow Cam is far from mediocre, in fact, his age, his size, his mobility, arm strength, make him, in my mind and many others, the best QB in the entire league.
