    I don’t think people realize the lack of NFL talent cam had compared to Burrow with what might be multiple first rounders

    After seeing 2018 Burrow being unable to complete a forward pass against Alabama, I'm still not entirely convinced 2019 Burrow wasn't a body double.

    Or Coach O made a deal with the devil, and is now paying for it tremendously.

    Not to take away from Joe but I feel like the change in scheme mixed with all that talent was kind of a punch in the mouth that most defensive units couldn’t recover from.

    Cam was basically a one man show that was brilliant to watch. Dude led like 8 or 9 second half comebacks and drug that otherwise 6 win auburn team to an undefeated title.

    I'm just taking Burrow because that was the most impressive passing season I've ever seen in CFB history

    I voted Cam but it all depends on the team.

    If I'm loaded with WR talent and have a good OL, give me Burrow.

    If my WRs aren't that good and I need a guy to carry a subpar team, Cam all day. Cam in college was one of the most singularly dominant things I've seen at times.

    Newton and Fairley were arguably the two best players in cfb that year. The rest of the team was ridiculously average. Cam wins imo.

    Cam was a man among boys (both his opponents and his teammates).

    Burrow was a god too but the difference in personnel and perhaps coaching (although Gus at that particular time was probably the best coach for Cam) are stark.

    Alternatively:

    Joe Burrow in 2010 or Cam Newton in 2019?

    It’s Burrow because he was absolutely stellar for every game he played in, can’t remember even a bad half he played. Their defense was also well below what the CFB punditry had considered NC-worthy to that point

    Both set a high water Mark for QB play in the SEC in their own ways IMO

    Agree that Burrow had a wayyyy superior supporting cast

    Cam also had to overcome having Gus as OC. Menelaus sorry missed your post above. I know Brady wasn't technically OC but he is a much better coach than Gus.
