Default Why is Cam Newton the obvious RotY?

Far be it from me ever to say anything nice about a Bengal, but honestly, shouldn't it be Dalton? It's not as though Dalton's numbers are awful, and Newton has definitely settled down some. And then there's the obvious: Dalton is winning, despite having to throw mostly to another rookie, and without much of a running game.

Quite honestly, if it's not going to be a Steeler, I'd rather it stay in-house in the AFCN.

i agree i think dalton deserves it more. but people will argue that cam newton doesn't win because he isn't surrounded by the same talent as dalton is. the bengals team is pretty solid overall while carolina is well, carolina.

Cincy is further removed from the playoffs than Carolina, aren't they? They've sniffed it once in the past ten years or so, I think that game where Kimo von Oelhoeven snapped Palmer's leg, if memory serves. And they both sucked horrifically last year, right? Carolina has a running game and Steve Smith, whereas Cincy has an actual defense. So much for the theory that it's an offensive game now.

Made it in 2009 when they won the division but got bounced first round by the Jets. It's tough really for me between the two. Cam has the more impressive stats and one can argue his record has been hindered by his defense. At the same time, Dalton has his team in the playoff hunt in a tough division but some argue that his defense has helped him like Cam's defense has hurt him. It's tough really but I think both organizations probably feel a lot better about their futures going forward then they did last year which is more than Jacksonville who got Gabbert can say. I think our division is going to be really interesting especially if Cincy makes smart picks with the picks from the Palmer-Raiders trade. And it will also be interesting to see how Dalton does when more is asked of him on offense too.

We haven't quite gotten to the point where we give Rookie of the Year awards to college juniors. Maybe one day.

Default Re: Why is Cam Newton the obvious RotY?

if one was gonna revise their fantasy football team and had the choice just between cam newton and dalton, everybody would select cam for his rushing td's and passing yards alone.

that is why.

as for von miller, there is no rookie mvp award. cam will most likely win offensive rookie of the year, and von miller pretty much already has the defensive ROTY award sewn up.

the last 2 steelers honored would be big ben and kendrell bell.
