But, no, don't let facts get in your way of judging him - that would be ridiculous.
Cam is not a joke, but other than his age you gain no advantage with him over Ben in fact you lose. Example Cam is so far a 59.2 percent passer while Ben is a career 63.1 Cam QBR of 86.2 and Ben career of 92.5, Ben throws a TD on 5% of his total passes while Cam 4.1% and they both throw INTs at a rate of 2.9%. Cam has had only 1 NFL 4th quarter comeback while Ben has 20 And Ben had 7 in his first 2 seasons. Cam is a good QB but I think you along with others are reading too much into this last season as the decline of Ben.
