The NFL MVP debate has been raging on for quite a while now. With multiple candidates performing at a high level, the race to win to coveted award this season is a fascinating one. Players such as Dak Prescott and Brock Purdy are having terrific seasons and are in the hunt to win the award. Non-QBs such as Christian McCaffrey and Tyreek Hill are in the race as well.

However, the award is likely to go to a quarterback this season as well and the two surprise candidates for the award are Prescott and Purdy. Their performances have garnered a lot of praise from the football world, but there are some doubters who believe that these two don’t make a major difference to the outcome of the game. One such player is former NFL MVP Cam Newton, who called Purdy and Prescott as nothing more than game-managers.

A lot of media houses and pundits blasted Newton for that assessment. The former MVP clarified his comments on the latest episode of his podcast. Newton clarified what he meant by the game-managers and game-changers. He captioned that video: “I’m just going to leave this here..”

Another player who agreed with Newton’s assessment was Dez Bryant. The former Dallas Cowboys‘ receiver took to Twitter to agree with Newton’s statements. Bryant has criticized the media a lot this year and he did that again in his tweet. He retweeted the former Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton’s video and said:
