Right now, both these guys are pretenders. They only get to start, because their ownership/head coach think that they can be better than they are right now. If they can't make the playoffs within a couple years, they will be backups.
Not even remotely close to being true for Newton. The burden on offense is all on his shoulders considering the amount of injuries they have had at RB and OL. The running game isn't there for them this year like it was in years past. Williams and Stewart have blown this year. Not to mention, they were ahead in 5 games this year in the last quarter and their defense let them down. Newton is plenty good enough to start in this league.
