Am I jumping the gun by putting Cam Newton 10th on this list?
But Newton has done everything right this season and has really impressed everyone.
From his first two games where he threw over 400 yards in losing efforts, to his heroic performance which led to his first ever victory at home this Sunday in a monsoon, Newton has shown America that he is destined to become an elite quarterback one day.
Sure, having the same amount of touchdowns as interceptions is nothing to write home about, but his big yardage games, along with his heroics this afternoon, put him in the top 10.
Newton is a gamer and he's really shown it thus far. His statistics in Week 3 were not that shiny, but it showed his IQ on the field. The conditions were sloppy in Carolina and he really didn't air it out Sunday. Instead, he settled for short passes and averaged close to five yards per completion. This is definitely a low number, but it's the wise decision to make when the field is being flooded by a treacherous storm.
He beats out Ben Roethlisberger and Joe Flacco, who are both not on this list.
First off, Big Ben has barely beat the dismal Colts on Sunday night. Secondly, his other win came against the lowly Seahawks and in his only loss he was a turnover machine.
As for Flacco, his numbers are really great, but in a league where even Tarvaris Jackson has a completion percentage of over 60 percent, Flacco's is at a mere 54.1 percent. He'll need to improve on that to break the top ten.
