Cam Newton is a Magician

Recommended Posts

    That certainly was an amazing play. It totally fooled almost everyone. Including the cameraman who followed CmC.

 

   Yeah, it took multiple replays for everyone to figure what the heck just happened.

I second iamhubby’s assessment. Took a couple replays on the big screen before we figured out what had happened

Can needs to get more plays like this and we just may start killing teams with them especially the Saints to cause them some grief and a loss in a big way. With making plays like this we could own the division and get a spot in the SB and possibly win it all. Down side would be teams would eventually catch on and end our domination fun.

Cam has always been good at selling the fakes, I think he is one of best I have ever seen at fake hand offs.  Most QBs just do a motion , but he actually puts the ball in the belly and holds it there a sec and then pulls it out.  He also fake throws a lot on handoffs which you very rarely see from other QBs

I think its because his hands are so big. He can jerk the ball back from the rbs gullet when alot of qbs would prolly fumble.

It was a good play but I saw it pretty easily in real time and it's clear the defenders knew what happened, Samuel just outran them to the edge. Good design and Cam faked it as well as anyone can but it really wasn't anything all that special.

Gee whee whoop. This is a very beautiful thing. 

Just keep your eyes on what Cam Newton does.

When I was watching this replay, I had to rewatch to see where my eyes were tricking me. The Panthers execute a very beautifully designed misdirection play to perfection, down to the point it even threw me off.

Cam Newton ultimately ends up handing it off to Samuel, which for most people it would've taken a few more replays to finally see how he does it.

Good stuff.

 

Plays like that, and it was perfectly executed, are what make me think we are just now hitting our stride. Better days are ahead.

That play is special and it did in fact delay Falcons reaction time to deal with it.

I wouldn’t be so sure. 

Notice all the linebackers biting hard when Cam threw to the left. Throws them off and out of sync, and Samuel outruns them for the first.

34 was just staying with his assignment in Samuel, not really because he knew exactly where it was going.

Looking at that replay, the only defender who knew what was happening was #34 (Poole).  The LBs followed the fake throw.  The LDE stayed in place covering the "read option" with Dickson.

If it hadn't been for #34, that play would have gone for much more yardage.
