Career wise, yes. But Cam Newton's 1 dominant season proves he was better. Plus the fact that he's actually a good NFL quarterback as well. As much as people like to joke on Newton for being a head case (for reasons I've yet to figure out), Young was a true definition of a head case.
I don't disagree with Young being a head case, but Newtons hate is well deserved because the dude is a bitch. Good NFL QB is a stretch, he's middle of the pack to me. He had a great start to his rookie season, and the second half was mediocre.
I called him having a sophomore slump, and I'd say he did. He also has less than or exactly at 60% completion for both seasons. His threat as a runner is what makes him dangerous, and defenses caught up to that. 19 tds 12 INTs/ 21 tds 17 INTs in his 2 seasons. Gimmick bull shite only works for so long in the NFL, the consistent quarterbacks are passers, Newton isn't that.
Lets also take into account that he hasn't been a winner in the NFL, and he doesn't know how to handle losing. He's been spoiled with being the best in college and never having anyone to stop him. Go Cam, you look really cool doing the Superman move, as you're down by 30 points.
