Kyle Allen’s value, Part I: Production from a young gun

Many of us as Carolina Panthers fans have been analyzing and debating Kyle Allen in the wrong way. Too many of us are simply comparing Allen to Cam Newton and arguing about which quarterback gives the Panthers the best chance at winning. For me that answer is easy: A healthy Kyle Allen should play over an injured Cam Newton, but once Cam’s fully healthy he’s superior to Allen by multiple degrees.

Rather than debating “Kyle vs. Cam” the best way to evaluate Allen is by comparing him to his peers, quarterbacks in their first or second seasons who are playing meaningful snaps this year.
