Inside the Play: Cam Newton to Steve Smith

Recommended Posts

I decided to write up my own breakdown of the post route throw Cam made against Indy to Steve Smith for 30 yards, mostly in an effort to highlight ways in which his passing ability has been severely understated. I hope you guys find it informative.

This is the first time I've tried something like this, so. . .

CAM is regressing

I would disagree: he's simply having to deal with tighter windows and more difficult throws because teams gameplan around covering Steve Smith and taking away his downfield throws (because none of them imagined how deadly he could be throwing deep.)

My entire article illustrates how much he is already adapting to these new challenges, and making high-quality throws to counteract them.

He's not regressing: he's adapting.

Nice work. Does a pretty good job of illustrating just how complex this offense is and how much more we're asking of him than most rookie QB's. It's too bad the major networks don't really go over the x's and o's of football because scenarios such as this illustrate why a QB like Cam is superior to a QB like say... Dalton. Dalton will just throw the ball up for AJ Green to catch, whereas Cam is required to make some pretty difficult throws and make the right read every time.
