as ugly as it was, the oline didn't play as bad as it looked. on numerous occasions newton held onto the ball way too freaking long. his refusal to throw it away or use a check down is ridiculous. i'm going to assume they're forcing the issue of developing chemistry between him and the WRs and chalk this up to working out the kinks since it's preseason.
as far as run blocking, it is what it is...but there's no way in hell williams can be the bell cow back.
in a nutshell, don't anticipate the world beating offensive line the panthers had in 2008. the current line is serviceable.
