Cam Newton posted a 97.0 Total QBR in Carolina's win over the Falcons. It was the highest single-game QBR of his career and the highest by any Panthers QB over the last 5 season.


Also the highest of Week 14. QBR is still a shitty stat, though.

Heck, go back to week 4...14 passing TDs, 5 rushing TDs, 5 INTs

19 TDs to 5 INTs



.....he had a bad night on prime time TV week 3.....one week isn't a sophomore slump. media jumped on a week 3 game and never let go.


Totally

If we can just package Cam and Kuechly with a non-head-in-the-ass coaching staff, we're set

Add offensive weapons, be smart in fa, move forward, start winning fuggin games

Through week 8 he had 4-5 bad games (week 1 could be debated, had 1 TD and 2 INTs but completed 70% of his passes). More than week 3 that got the media talking.

Also would like to point out that his improvement over the past month or so has come behind a patchwork/poo OL and Chud's erratic playcalling. Get that man a healthy and better OL with another weapon...ooooh wee mayne.

he might not look at 2nd, 3rd options and all that... but I'll tell you what... he throws the ball with a velocity I've never seen and his release is pretty quick. Like Warren Moon-esque....

When you have a gun like that, you're going to make teams pay no matter what your method is going through progressions. Guys in this league will get open and defenses will blow coverages and if you have an arm to make them pay like cam does you are a star, god-given.

Media also overlooked why we were losing those games.....and just went with Cam as the easy answer.

Not disagreeing with that, just disagreeing that week 3 is the sole reason he was said to be in a slump.

Well you said week 1 could be debated as he completed 70% of his passes with literally no run game 0 yards from RBs.
Week 2 - he dominated. 70% completion
Week 3 - media jumped on him
Week 4- great game at Atl - one we should of won.

That was the first quarter of season.....slump talk was in full swing at that point. One game started it and no one paid attention to why we lost just eagerly jumped on the slump talk.

A light came on for Cam the past month or so...

Decision making, pocket awareness, play making....it's all coming together


Maybe the coaching letting him audible more?
