Newton: "It's About Trusting The System"

186 posts in this topic

first off, most quarterbacks have to throw off their back foot when they are getting pressured. They also have to side arm it, toss it, and other things to make a play. He doesn't do it when he has time and can step up in his throws. Too much is being made of it.

What he is talking about is knowing where a receiver is going to be and throwing to a spot trusting that the receiver is going to be there to make a play. If you watch his throws many of them are arriving late because he is waiting for the receiver to get open before he throws. By the time the ball gets there, the defender has closed on the receiver and can easily make a play on the ball. You could see that with smitty on several occasions in the last game. Smitty was open for a moment but by the time cam found him and threw it, he wasn't open anymore.

That is what he means by trusting the system. It was also the main issue with newton at the combine where he was used to throwing to a receiver not a spot on a timing route. That is a much bigger issue for cam at this point. Plus if he throws on a timing route instead of holding the ball until someone clears, he is much more likely not to be pressured which results in many of the back foot throws.

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.

But Cam is a bad person Kurb! You have to see that in what he said here!!

:rolleyes:

Cam definitely had the most upside.

He was nowhere near the safest pick.

He is the poster child for risk-reward pick.

U mean the way the media made Mike Vick the posterchild for animal cruelty? BTW, who determine who gets to be poster children for anything?

And by what criteria? Cause all I remember during the draft was nothing but fear mongering as far as Cam was concerned. I even remembered reading an article where some Panther fans were going to show their protest for Cam by wearing Anti-Cam t-shirts if he did get drafted by the Panthers. I was like...WTF..

I'm glad during the draft that many didn't share those ignorant sentiments but it does show the real power of our media's ability to play to the fears and prejudices of the fans.

he was a high risk high reward prospect. he wasn't a safe pick.

not sure that is a criticism. tone it down a little.

Oh please...Enough with the false rational of why Cam is under the microscope. Cam was under the microscope ever since he announced he was entering the draft and something tells me he will never stop being under the microscope. No matter how good he plays, someone will be sitting there finding something to make a bigger deal out of and make it the main focus.

What I find so funny is, with all the media brew ha-ha about The Golden Calf of Bristol dropping to the #3 spot on the QB list due to his inaccuracies and footworks, there isn't one article making a big deal about it or telling him how to fix them. Instead, many of the articles are either blaming Denver or the coach.

Sadly, there are many who feel without much proof, that Cam needs to be told what to fix on a daily basis cause I guess those around him aren't doing a good enough job.

And yes, I follow football, not just Cam Newton. So I pay attention to how all team and every QB, especially the new ones, is being handled by the media.

Cam has been under the microscope the day Auburn became #1 on the BCS, and the Alabama Crimson Tide media folks launched a smear campaign against him.

:mad5: What an absurd statement. Michael Vick made Michael Vick the posterchild for animal cruelty when he held puppies underwater and drown them.:mad5:

I can see Cam being the NFL quarterback risk/reward posterchild. Spread quarterbacks don't typically do that great in the NFL. He does have the athletic ability and he has been working his butt off. I've seen several times I know he could have run for a first down and I hope the coaches don't stifle that part of game. But the passing game being there is a wait and see, for me, right now.

I don't recall The Golden Calf of Bristol being the 1st overall pick.

His mechanics are atrocious when there's not a nice, clean pocket and he's got to fix that for the rest of it to matter.

Every player in this draft was a reach at #1. Newton was the smallest reach by a long shot.

Oh good God, that comment alone is a huge reach.

Not that I disagree with you but the point still stands...The expectations are, and should be high. He will, and should, live under a telescope. Everything he does will be analyised to death...and it should be.

HE WAS THE NUMBER 1 PICK IN DRAFT; not some 6th round "prospect". #1 overall draft picks are drafted to come in and make the team better, not for the team to make that person better. If we had a good team we wouldn't be getting the #1 draft pick to begin with...so while on a better TEAM things may be different may be true...fact of the matter is, he isn't and his job is to make the team better...not blame his faults on the team he is here to help

Shouldn't his really be microscope? I can see why KT used telescope( cam is heavenly) I guess either one is correct depending on the way you look at Cam.
