Talib calls Newton 'probably the most dangerous QB'

The Broncos have finished off Ben Roethlisberger and Tom Brady in back-to-back weeks, but their biggest challenge lies ahead.

That's according to Aqib Talib, the Denver cover man who called Carolina signal-caller Cam Newton "probably the most dangerous quarterback in the NFL."

"He's throwing the ball amazing right now," Talib said Monday. "And then you know what he can do with his legs. So he's the best of both worlds, man."

When they face off in Super Bowl 50, Newton will present a unique problem for the Broncos. While Denver has piled up 14 wins this season, they haven't played a double-threat quarterback like Newton, who looms as a sure-fire bet to nab MVP honors.

Kansas City's Alex Smith and Indy's Andrew Luck can run -- and both beat Denver this season -- but Cam is playing on another level right now. He shredded the Cardinals on Sunday with 382 total yards, including 47 yards on the ground as Newton stiff-armed his way through Arizona's confused defense.

"Super unique," said Talib. "I've never seen nobody that size. You look like the typical NFL quarterback. You can sit in the pocket and throw it. And then you can run with all ... you probably could play any position in the NFL that you wanted to. So he's definitely a unique player. Like I said he's probably the most dangerous quarterback in the NFL right now."
