No way I would do that.
Newton has been sensational, no doubt about it, but I really don't see it continuing for the balance of the season.
He's a rookie QB, it's only a matter of time before defenses figure him out. Green Bay provided the blue print in the 2nd 1/2 of the game they played. Jacksonville did too both before and after the rain week 3.
I hate to say it, but I don't think my Bears are very good.
IMO, it is inevitable that defenses are going to start catching up to Newton, there are now 4 full sets of game tape out on him.
There is absolutely 0 chance that Newton finishes the season w/ 5544 passing yards, 532 rushing yards, 20 passing TD, 20 INT, 0 Fumbles Lost, and 16 rushing TD - that's what he's on pace for - 430.96 standard scoring points (26.93 PPG)
By comparison, the following are all in the team photo for best fantasy season by a QB all time -
Mike Vick's 2010 season (12 games played) - 3018 pass/676 rush/21 PTD/9 RTD/6 INT/3 FL - 314.32 standrd scoring points (26.19 PPG)
Tom Brady's 2007 season - 4806 pass/98 rush/50 PTD/2 RTD/8 INT/4 FL = 398.04 standard scoring points (24.88 PPG)
Daunte Culpepper's 2004 season - 4717 pass/406 rush/39 PTD/2 RTD/11 INT/5 FL = 376.28 standard scoring points (23.52 PPG)
Peyton Manning's 2004 season - 4557 pass/38 rush/49 PTD/0 RTD/10 INT/1 FL = 370.08 standard scoring points (23.13 PPG)
I'll be glad to eat a whole lot of crow if Newton proves me wrong, but IMO there is no way he puts up the best QB season of all time his rookie season.
I am of the belief that he won't finish the season as a top 10 QB - I know I'm in the growing minority on this, but historically, the odds are in my favor...viewtopic.php?t=501429
