I can agree with that statement on accuracy not being easy to improve on and I'm glad to see that you do think its possible that can be. The only problem I have is stating opinion as fact like Merill Hoge did about his accuracy after only one preseason game and two weeks of camp. You seemed to be doing that as well, but I will change my opinion on that as well after your comment.
I've also watched most of his college games.
I don't watch plays for their results.
Glad that you missed the entire point of the original OP. You "expectations" or the standard you are holding Cam Newton to was one that even a two time SB champ couldn't reach last night.
I have expectations that if they step on the field, they should make the throws. Just like in basketball I expect them to be able to make open jumpers and in baseball they should be able to hit the fastball down the pipe and field a ground ball.
I gave him a break on balls that were iffy, where the defense got away with some calls, etc.
My only expectation is that the QB puts the ball in a place that doesn't hinder the receivers ability to make a play.
If it's on the ground in the end zone, who cares. If it's on the ground at the 2, bad ball. If a screen is thrown behind the receiver, slowing his momentum and he gets tackled from behind short of a 1st on 3rd and 5, turrible.
