So how good is Cam Newton?

This good.

… LSU led the SEC in rushing defense last week, but that was before the Tigers allowed 440 rushing yards in their 24-17 loss at Auburn. Newton had a season-high 217 yards, and Auburn’s punishing performance resulted in LSU plummeting from first (83.6) to seventh (128.1) in the league. [Emphasis added.]

  1. Yikes! Good thing I don’t have to worry about that for another 5 days.

    He’s amazing. I don’t see anyone stopping him. You might be able to outscore Auburn, though.

    Maybe.

  3. Go Dawgs!

    Maybe he’ll wear himself out running all over UT-Chattanooga…

    Me thinks Bama will make Newton even more one-dimensional by containing him and the other backs. I’d love to see Newton beat you with his arm.

    I also like Bama’s offense vs. what has been a very pedestrian AU defense. That’s a significant mismatch imo.

    Auburn hasn’t left J-H and beaten another team silly. Houston Nutt’s team has no business winning this w/e.

    AU is doomed.

    Have to give him credit, he has wiped GPOOE off everyone’s minds. Not that Tebow wasn’t impressive, but this guy is a more dangerous QB to me. Hard to believe that in the very first season after Tebow left an SEC QB is setting new records. Like everyone else I wonder what you can do to neutralize a player of Newton’s talents. Other than hitting him before he builds up any steaam, you just hope to have enough players around him to limit the number of big plays he makes. I am certain CTG will bring a lot of heat to make him think quick and never be comfortable where the opening is.

    I am far from confident about our trip to the Plains but I have a gut feeling if Clemson, SC, KY, and MSU can play them we will find a way also. I notice their fans are beginning to sweat us a lot more these days.

    I hope somebody in the Dawgs organization is taking note as other teams use their QB’s mobility to great advantage. We don’t have to switch entirely to the spread or even the wildcat to find ways to help our offense.
