newton vs wison

Newton, one of the NFL's most electric players, but his childish sulking in defeat is a serious issue that does not seem to be going away.


Wilson, who helped lead the Seahawks to their first-ever championship in just his second NFL season, was lauded by PFWA for his “qualities and professional style in helping pro football writers do their jobs.” He is well known for his dynamic on-field persona — equally able to beat opponents with his arm and with his legs — as well as his community work off the field, including his weekly visits to Seattle Children’s hospital.


Both quarterbacks put defensive coordinators in a bind. Do they try to prevent

Wilson and Newton from leaving the pocket? Or blitz to try to produce pressure?


This one goes hand in hand with the category above and helps explain why both guys have been so good this year. Often when quarterbacks use their athletic ability, critics assume they can't operate from the pocket. But that's not the case with Wilson and Newton.


Both players are among the best in the league at escaping pressure, but since they move around, buy time and scramble, they'll also take some sacks.
