At 7-3, Cam Newton sits atop the NFL media throne. One year ago the story read differently. The Carolina Panthers entered Week 12 of the 2012 season with a miserable 2-8 record. Newton had produced four solid performances with a Total QBR over 50, and six forgettable games under 50. After a magical rookie campaign—at least on an individual level—the term “sophomore slump” flew around blogs quite freely.
Robert Griffin III is having the Cam Newton Experience a year later. In the midst of a dismal 3-7 start by the Washington Redskins, RGIII’s leadership has been questioned, his decision-making consistently held under a microscope, and development as a quarterback doubted. He too has more Total QBR scores under 50 than over it this season
Is RGIII simply going through a Newton-like slump, or could this be a sign of his future?
