    • yeah, no kidding. I think people have gone crazy since Newton put up such good numbers the past couple of weeks...

      I was reading a post the other day where someone wanted to trade Brees because they have Newton as well. Then there are the countless "Should I sit Rodgers for Newton?" questions....seriously people?!?!?! Sure, Newton has done great things, but why would anyone who has either Brees, Rodgers, Brady, Rivers, or Vick honestly think of sitting them or trading them unless they are injured?

      Newton is a luxurious back-up if you have one of those guys or some amazing trade bait that can be used to wrangle away a better RB from managers who lost Peyton Manning or just ended up with less tasty QBs this year, but he isn't someone you keep or play over a healthy top-5 QB....I wouldn't even play Newton over a healthy Stafford.

      I would, however, play Newton over anyone who isn't one of the QBs I mentioned. ^^ This doesn't mean I'd trade Matt Ryan or Schaub, but I'd definitely play Newton over them until he gave a reason to bench him.
