supposedly sunday person goes into more detail.
Had a chance to check out Cam Newton's throwing session Thursday at IMG Academies in Bradenton, Fla., with former Panthers QB Chris Weinke.
Newton has the Panthers' playbook, about 90 percent of which Weinke has installed.
When Newton gets together with Weinke, the sessions are designed to mimic what Newton would be doing in Charlotte.
Here's how they work it:
Weinke gives Newton the play call, using the precise Panthers' terminology (including line protections).
Newton repeats the play as he would in the huddle, then simulates a huddle break by slapping the ball.
Newton calls out the Panthers' cadence at the line of scrimmage, then drops backs and makes the throw. (On Thursday he had Giants WR Michael Clayton, Browns TE Alex Smith, Detroit rookie WR Titus Young and a couple of small-college receivers catching passes).
Weinke said he has made only minor tweaks with Newton's mechanics, and has been impressed with the way Newton has approached the sessions in Bradenton.
"He wants to be great," Weinke said.
looking forward to it (esp. considering there isn't much else going on)
