Well, it isn't worth arguing this point much, as neither side can prove anything. I would say there is no way this team wins with the way Newton played. Maybe if he was forced to be conservative like Tebow. This defense is still pretty bad. It can't handle the offense turning it over and throwing it all the time. This defense needed the run game we had. You can see what turnovers did to this team early and late. Newton turned it over far too much and didn't score enough for as much as he threw it. We also don't have the recievers they have. That all said, no one knows what he would look like in a conservative offense.
Tebow ran a game plan meant for winning with an inexperienced QB. Newton ran a game plan geared towards long term developement.
