Newton: "It's About Trusting The System"

Recommended Posts

Translate: "It's about trusting the o-line"

He is essentially saying that he throws off his back foot because he doesn't trust the oline enough to step into his throws. At least that's how I interpret it.

Surprised to hear that the system includes happy feet and throwing the ball like a duck. But, what do we know? Could be the next big thing.

He doesn't know what he doesn't know, yet.

Sounds just like his supporters.....

Blame anything and everything except what is actually wrong.

His mechanics ARE a big problem. They can and likely will get fixed. But it will take time.

I think the mechanics should be #1 on his list. Last time I checked, throwing off your back foot and leaning away from your throws isn't considered good mechanics. But what do I know? It's not like I'm a QB or a coach or scout or anything.....

His mechanics breakdown most when the line breaks down.

He is saying he has to execute better, which would encompass all area's of play.

Even mechanics.

Its not a 100% mechanics issues, its a total offensive execution issue.

*In my best Bill Lumberg voice* "Yeah.... We're gonna need him to go ahead... and change that ASAP.... mmmk?.... Great..."

If the coaches are not telling him that his footwork needs improvement, then it will never be fixed. His throwing mechanics are perfectly fine. But, his footwork is piss poor. It sounds like the coaches have not expressed concern about his footwork, but that can't be right.

There is next to no way they aren't constantly working with him to get those feet set.

I thought they limited his media access? I expect this quote to be all over ESPN and NFLN soon, he should know by now that anything he says is open to criticism and nitpicking.

Yea for certain.. but it seems misleading that Cam says that he doesn't think it's his mechanics.. almost like he doesn't trust what the coaches are telling him day in and day out. Because surely they are working on his footwork all the time.

This statement worries me a bit. I hope he takes this footwork business seriously and listens to what the coaches are telling him.

Sounds to me as if he is recognizing he has to get the ball out quicker.

This actually makes the most sense. I think it's about him trusting his 1st and 2nd reads before panicking and hitting the checkdown or scrambling.
