As if it could be anyone else.
Cam Newton has played at a higher level than even his most passionate supporters could have predicted. He's set a rushing touchdown record, and the season isn't even over yet.
To make things better, unlike Tim Tebow, Newton seems comfortable sitting in the pocket and killing teams with his arm instead of his legs.
It took Vince Young five years to get that part of the game down, and Newton is already better at it than Young ever was.
Newton broke out immediately in Week 1 against the Cardinals, he completed just under 65 percent of his passes for 422 yards and two touchdowns. Since then, he hasn't looked back, throwing for 2,103 yards already and seems to be improving every game.
If Newton keeps on the course he's on, he'll be one of the top quarterbacks in the league in a few years.
