The Newton play is telling of one of his abilities. It looks tailor made for a QB who struggles to misdirect defenders. His first look is to the reciever to his right (either that, or Auburn only had ten men on the field and Newton is insane). Second look is to the center to a crossing reciever. Third look is to his TE, who is his only real target. When he looks right, the TE is faking a block and would be in his periphreal vision; when he looks to the center the TE is also crossing. It works too because the TE is underneath single coverage in the end zone.

I just think that if you watch the route combination from the replays when they show the wide view, you can see that those aren't routes meant to get open. Those are routes to pull the coverage to the right. The receiver at the bottom ran a half assed fade route and the receiver at the top ran a dig in the middle of the endzone right at the LBers, almost like a pick play. Couple that with the fact that the TE pretended to block then snuck out I think it's pretty obvious.

How can you say it's his only real target but not say the play is designed for him?

I'm curious as to how the TE can be anything higher than a 2nd read at best when only 2 people went out for a pattern?

I'll agree the plays were designed for the TE

Maybe I didn't say that. I don't know.

BUT, there is the chance that one of the recievers beats their coverage and is wide open making the TD easier and sooner. Newton is set to throw every time he looks, so I'd say they are valid reads.

Hard to tell on the Cam Newton vid because you can't see the rest of the receivers, but the TE was definitely not the 1st read on the play.

If you watch the entire video you can see the whole route combination.

You can see how the top receiver almost picks the linebackers making the TE more open.

Didn't mean to hurt your feelings BlackCat

No hurt feelings. I just think you're sort of making an ass out of yourself on a stupid point.

People have had that opinion before, minds change eventually ;)

I'm just getting a better assessment of posters I'm dealing with here.

Here's the thing though. Over half, or about half of the people see it the way I did.

At best, you MIGHT be right, but you carry yourself like you are 100% right.

You're wrong to assume that he's a one-read QB, which was my point all along. :)

I gotta go, I'd love to argue with you some more, but I have an hour long drive ahead of me. Later!

CAM NEWTON #1 OVERALL BABY!

I'm not the only one that has said that though, that he's a 1 read QB.

The video you posted did nothing to bolster your case that he isn't which got me started on it.

Also, look at the results, It's Not Alright said he is the first read but voted 3rd, also, you voted twice and so forth.

To each his own I guess.

The TE is the eventual target of the play, but is the third option in the progression of the play for a successful completion.

Look, I know watching the Panthers the last few years could teach you other wise, but plays can be designed with more than one outcome in mind.
