That 1st year was pretty brutal for him and people on this board wanted him gone, and thought the Texans had "another blown 1st round pick." Don't give up on Newton yet. He still has a lot to learn. As for the 2 guards, well that's another story.....
I totally agree. I see a lot of potential in Newton, and to me, he's a better pass blocker than Winston. We definitely need to replace Wade & Caldwell. I'm really hoping Brooks will step up next season and challenge to start, like what Newton did this year.
