Cam Newton Sets Another Rookie Record!

Maybe Cam had a so-so day but he still got the win which will go a long way in his development.

The first two weeks of Carolina Panthers rookie quarterback Cam Newton’s career have been pretty exciting after back-to-back performances with over 400 passing yards–but the former Heisman Trophy winner entered Week 3 still searching for his first career win. On Sunday, Newton accomplished his main goal against the Jacksonville Jaguars and even set a new record in the process.

While it may not have been another 400-yard performance, Newton completed 18 of 34 passes for 158 yards with one touchdown–setting a record by becoming the first rookie to throw for over 1,000 passing yards in his first three games. Through three games, Newton has already thrown for 1,012 yards with four touchdowns and four interceptions.

The best part is, Carolina is 1-2 and each of their two losses have been by just seven points–so this team has definitely improved from their 2-14 finish from one year ago.

It may be early, but it’s safe to say the Panthers made the right decision when they used the No. 1 pick on Newton last April instead of giving Jimmy Clausen–who threw for just three touchdowns in 13 games as a rookie last season–another chance to prove himself. Newton has progressed quicker than anyone expected and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he sets a few more records the rest of his rookie season.

Not so impressed by all the records yet. Cam is talented but is still a rookie with lots of work to do. The best thing he's done all year imo is winning ugly. He had a bad day yesterday, missed a lot of passes, probably should have increased his int by 2 but still found a way to win and made the right plays when it really mattered. He had similar chances against AZ and GB but came up just a bit short. Not this time though.

That is the stat that will define him as a player

"He had a bad day yesterday, missed a lot of passes, probably should have increased his int by 2"

My impression was that (as a result of the weather conditions) that the number of missed interceptions at least was equaled by the number of receiver drops.

You know it really went both ways in terms of turnovers. Cam should have had a few picks but how many fumbles did the jaguars recover...a few that seemed we had someone right there. And if Newton is on target with a few of his throws early in the game I think this one would have been a blowout.

We picked a GOOD day to have a BAD day.

Football is a sport...Sometimes u have to find a way to win even when ur not having a bad day...

And even on this bad day of play the panther fans looked like they were having a ball in the rain. When last did u guys feel such exhilation, while biting ur nails?

3rd game in a row where I'm sitting on the edge of my seat the entire time and I'm really impressed how much the fans are getting into the games now!
I'm hoarse today (as usual)

It's never going to be a great passing game with drizzle and rain the whole time. Playing in that slop is going to inhibit offenses. The ball is slick, it's humid, your sweat doesn't dry from your hands. You can go through towel after towel and you still can't get your hands to dry. That's just the way it is. It's just like driving your car in the rain. You have to slow it down and avoid trouble. The wet conditions effected both teams, so neither put up big numbers. We played cautiously and came out on top.

I'm not really sure how you can't be impressed with a ROOKIE setting ROOKIE records.
