Cam Newton vs. Tim Tebow: Which Heisman Winner Will Have the Better Career?

The two most polarizing drafted quarterbacks of the past two seasons without doubt are Cam Newton and Tim Tebow.

Both are considerable talents. Both are national champions. Both are Heisman winners. They seem to have everything that a team would want in a quarterback but were they products of the teams around them or do they both have what it takes to excel at the next level?

Most agree that neither Tebow nor Newton possess "prototypical" quarterback qualities, meaning they don't take a five-step drop. Both came out of versions of the spread offense.

With all these similarities it would seem that both would go on to great careers and yet there are skeptics at every turn over these two. Newton is too self absorbed. Tebow did that weird commercial with his mom. Both have a weird hitch in their throw. Both don't know how to read progressions and take to their feet too often.

With two similar styles one should end up being better than the other be it pure athleticism, force of will, teammates or coaching staff. So which one will it be?
