“He’s Wrong”: Stephen A. Smith Proves Cam Newton Wrong Citing This Game Manager’s Deep Ball Accuracy

As a veteran quarterback, Cam Newton recently provided insights into the distinct responsibilities carried by quarterbacks in the NFL. Newton highlighted the contrasting roles between elite signal-callers and game managers, shedding light on each group’s unique burdens. Moreover, he identified a quartet of current star quarterbacks as the game managers.

He categorized Dak Prescott, Tua Tagovailoa, Brock Purdy, and Jared Goff as falling into the game manager role rather than the elite category. However, this wasn’t approved by the media personality Stephen A. Smith. He also focused on Purdy, who has showcased deep ball accuracy in his recent games.

Stephen A. Smith believes Cam Newton is wrong

Cam Newton recently said: “If we were to put that in its own right as ‘game managers,’ Brock Purdy, Tua Tagovailoa, Jared Goff, and Dak Prescott, these are game managers. They’re not difference makers.” However, Stephen A. Smith responded straight-forward, saying, “I just think he’s wrong.“

On First Take, Stephen A. Smith clarified that in no way he thinks that Dak Prescott and Jalen Hurts are game managers, especially the way they’ve been playing in the league so far. At the same time, he said, “Brock Purdy, to some degree, could be perceived as that, but the level of accuracy with which he’s been throwing the football and how he’s been spreading around, you can’t say enough about him.” So, Smith believes in Purdy’s deep ball accuracy.

With 37 attempts behind the line of scrimmage this season, Brock Purdy has showcased a strategic approach to his game. What stands out is his notable frequency of throwing the ball beyond 20 yards, a remarkable 30 times. Even when the play unfolds with a shorter pass, Purdy’s apparent inclination toward seeking the deep ball is evident. Moreover, Smith pulled out Cam Newton’s records to disprove his ‘game manager’ statement further.

Smith calls out Cam Newton on his completion rate

In the same episode, after Smith heard Newton ridiculing the efforts of Dak Prescott and Tua Tagovailoa, he pulled out some stats to draw a contrast between the styles of the plays. Smith pointed out that if a quarterback like Dak Prescott seems to be a game manager to Newton, then he took it as his obligation to let the fans know about the game rates of Newton during his time as the NFL QB.

Smith said, “In terms of Cam Newton, I have an obligation to let the audience know this. Of 31 quarterbacks with a minimum of 3,000 pass attempts over the last 20 years, only two have completion percentages below 60%. Cam Newton is one of them.” Then he mentioned that Donovon McNabb is the other quarterback, but the world saw McNabb go to five NFC championships throughout his career.

Smith remarked, “Cam running with the football instead of throwing the football efficiently, I believe respectfully when you’re calling somebody a game manager if they are, what did that make you?” So, he didn’t hold back as he tried to defend the modern-age quarterbacks against Cam Newton’s statement.
