After reading that troll post comparing Kaepernick to the rest of the young QB, I thought it would be interesting to compare how Newton and Kaepernick did against common opponents last year. The only common opponents while Kaepernick was starting were Atlanta and Seattle. Carolina played Atlanta twice last year and Seattle once. San Francisco played Atlanta once and Seattle once with Kaepernick as the starter. Below I have listed the per game statistics of both players in these game. Keep in mind this is a very small sample size (3 games for Newton and 2 games for Kaepernick). I will let you draw your own conclusions about what these numbers mean, if anything.
