I want to see more. Clearly, he is not a texans strength and far closer to a weakness. He may be ok durring the regular season but come the playoffs he'd better have his act together or he will be exploited.
I think Kubes saw Newton as at least comparable to Winston & maybe surpassing by end of season.
