Cam Newton another Vince Young? RGIII next?

22 October 2012 - 11:18 PM

Talent aside, neither of these QBs have the head to play the game it would seem. Vince Young appeared to be the next great NFL QB after his rookie season, then faced with tough times, he crashed and burned. Cam Newton, with his current state in NFL seems to be doing same thing. I think a lot of people give NFL execs grief over some of the tests they give these guys in the combine (interviews, Wonderlic), but it is obvious to me that these tests are critical to the success of a player, especially QB. No matter how much talent you have, if you don't have a good head on your shoulders, odds are you are not going to be successful. These QBs come into the league their rookie year and have instant success. I think they believe this is what their entire career will be like. Is that the problem? Success to early? I know it sounds ridiculous to say QBs need to lose early in career, but I think there is some merit to it. Some players, be it QBs or any other position, need to be tested mentally early in their career in order to be great. They all have the physical gifts, but the great ones are gifted mentally. RGIII is having a good year thus far and probably to early to bring him into this conversation, but the potential is there for him to go down the same path. I will say after hearing him talk, and understand his background, I don't beleive RGIII will go down this same path mentally, but just pointing out the potential is there. I left Andrew Luck out of conversation as most beleive his game mentally is one of the best since Manning.

Roddy White vs. Mike Wallace

Dynasty Wide Receiver Roddy White (31*) - Wrong side of 30. Drops a problem. #1 target for Matt Ryan, but Julio Jones will continue to eat into targets/tds. Consistent Fantasy Production. Mike Wallace (26*) - Young with room to improve. Future team in question currently (although expect Pitt). Antonio Brown #1 target for Big Ben? One Trick Pony? Inconsistent Fantasy Production. *Age during season Who you got and why?
