Move over Lombardi, Heisman, Nagurski, Thorpe or any other football human that has an award named after them. There is officially a new king in the football awards community. I introduce to you the Clausen, Tebow, Gabbert, Sanchez, Schaub, Osweiler, Leaf, Russell, Dilfer, Boller, Leinart, Weinke, Harrington, Carr, Couch, Peterman award. Each week I will be handing out this award to the QB that displayed an extreme proficiency in being terrible.
This weeks nominees are:
- Baker Mayfield and all 3 of those pesky interceptions, one of them being a pick 6.
The NFL is SOOOO good at keeping people humble. Last week everyone was riding so high on Baker because he bitched Hue Jackson and had a good game against the worst pass defense in the League. Oh how the mighty have fallen. This week the game was over by half largely because of Baker’s 3 first half interceptions. Thats too bad. Hate when that happens to the Browns. Here are the highlights:
2. Cam Newton and his 4 Interceptions against the Buccaneers
Cam is really good, or is he bad, or I don’t know. He’s an anomaly. He’s really good one week, he’s terrible the next. He’s an MVP one year, he sucks the next. I love Cam’s outfit but maybe not after a 4 INT loss to the Buccaneers. My one real constant issue with Cam is that no matter if he is throwing the ball 6 yards or 60 yards he always points that front shoulder to the sky to make it look like he’s throwing a bomb. I could not even imagine how frustrating that would be to watch each week as a Panthers fan. To the highlights we go:
AND THE WINNER IS….. CAM.
Going to give Baker a break because he is a rookie going against a good defense while Cam has won an MVP award and is going against the Buccaneers. Do better Cam, do better.
