What A SAD NEWS: Auburn Tigers Just Announced The Departure Of Fans Most Favorite Top Experienced High Profile Player Due To……

The Auburn football program hasn’t had at least seven wins in a season in four years, which is a long way from their heyday in the middle of the 2000s and the beginning of the 2010s. But, there is hope and optimism for the future as Auburn prepares to embark on the second year of the exciting Hugh Freeze era next fall, supported by a strong recruiting class and a plethora of elite transfers. But this offseason, Cam Newton, the 2010 Heisman Trophy winner, and Tommy Tuberville, the former head coach who is now a senator from Alabama, have also drawn a surprising amount of attention.

One month after Tuberville came under fire for an old horror story about recruiting from his time as an Auburn football player, Newton is now making the rounds on social media for his outspoken defense of the NFL’s most criticized quarterback. On Friday, during his podcast 4th & 1, Newton took a batting turn for Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, who is about to start the last year of a four-year, $160 million deal. When Newton left the NFL in 2021, he was a struggling player for the Carolina Panthers of the NFC South, who finished with a 5-12 record.

Former Auburn quarterback Cam Newton expressed his opinions about Dallas Cowboys franchise quarterback Dak Prescott without holding back. After a graphic showed that Prescott’s numbers (last 50 starts) are uncannily similar to those of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, a three-time Super Bowl champion, Newton expressed his respect for Prescott on his well-liked podcast 4th & 1.

Regarding the statistical parallels between Mahomes and Prescott over the course of their previous 50 starts, Newton remarked, “If you got the same stat line as Patrick Mahomes, something is clicking.” Over their last 50 starts, Prescott and Mahomes have identical numbers of passing touchdowns. Despite having one less pick, Prescott has a marginally higher passer rating.
Newton, meanwhile, suggested that Prescott’s upcoming salary should be higher than many of his contemporaries by comparing him to the ten highest-paid quarterbacks in the league. “I’m looking at a list of guys that don’t even have playoff experience or a playoff win, so if you’re going to sit up here and judge Dak Prescott on playoff success, then so be it.” Newton went on, “Dak Prescott is my choice over Kirk Cousins. Dak is better than Kyler Murray in my opinion. Dak is my choice over Jalen Hurts. Justin H. Herbert? Dak. Lawrence Trevor? I’m going with Dak.

In 2010, Newton finally established himself with the Auburn football program after beginning his collegiate career with the Florida Gators. During his one-year tenure with the Tigers, Newton passed for 2,854 yards, thirty touchdowns, and seven interceptions while leading the SEC team to a perfect season. In addition, Newton was an absolute beast on the ground, amassing 1,473 yards and 20 touchdowns while running for the Heisman Trophy and helping Auburn win its first championship since 1957.

After going first in the next draft, dual-threat Newton scored 35 touchdowns and won AP Offensive Rookie of the Year. Despite his brief career, Newton had an incredible prime that included a 2013 MVP season and a trip to the Super Bowl.

In the meantime, during his four seasons with the Mississippi State Bulldogs from 2012 to 2015, Prescott demonstrated his dual-threat ability, just like Newton. Prescott passed for almost 10,000 yards and scored a healthy 41 touchdowns on the ground. The Dallas Cowboys didn’t select Prescott until the fourth round of the 2016 NFL draft, despite his enormous success in college. Similar to Newton, Prescott’s rookie campaign saw him win the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year award. Although Prescott received MVP votes the previous season, he was not able to surpass Baltimore Ravens’ Lamar Jackson.
