I'm a huge fan of Cam Newton, but let's face it, he sometimes loses his focus and isn't as accurate he should be and he tries to throw into tight coverage too much.
It's SOMETIMES okay to throw into really tight coverage ... but only IF you are SUPER ACCURATE. If Cam wants to try to make spectacular plays where he's throwing into tight coverage then he's going to have to work harder on his ACCURACY. The DBs in the NFL will show up "out of nowhere" and burn him. They are a lot smarter and faster than Cam probably realizes at this point in his career.
If Cam gets SUPER ACCURATE, he will drive DBs in the NFL crazy ... especially because of his other things he has to threaten them with like his running ability. Cam should work on getting the quickest feet in the NFL.
Cam needs to learn to slide to the very best part of the pocket to throw the ball and then set his feet perfectly for a textbook throwing motion. Drew Brees is very good at this. Drew HAS to be since he's only 6'0". Cam should watch some game film on Brees and other guys like Brady and Peyton Manning.

Cam seems to be spending too much time with his posse in the hood. Some of those mistakes are a clear indication of a lack of preparation.
