Cam Newton silences his critics

Recommended Posts

This sentence probably better articulates what I was trying to explain to the haters all season.

Newton played at such a high level as a rookie that maybe we should treat a step back in his second season not as an invitation to rip him mercilessly, but as a simple example of regression to the mean.

until he wins a ring some will never be quieted.

nor should they.

let that be his fuel. let them keep providing those mental bullets.

i don't know if i want him all that respected by those outside the panthers until he wins a ring.

for most, that will be the definitive proof of what he can do.

I don't know what I did to the guys over at PFT, but they delete literally every single post I make in the comments section. Every damn one.

Did anyone else notice that he started off strong when they were mixing it up with pass and run. But when they went to more of a heavy passing attack he struggled until they came back to the run?

The First half was really balanced which I like since it keeps the D on their toes. But in the third, they seem to want to pass more than run.

And heres another thing. If the run is not working all that well in a game why do we not throw more HB or WR or TE screens? Anyone?

I like the fact they know we are going to have a brand new squad entering the 2013 season.

Lately it seems that Cam starts the game really strong, goes into a little rut, then picks it back up again. Seems like every game he'll start 8/10, then go 2/8, then finish 9/12 to be around 60% for the game. I don't know if its Chud over thinking the play calling, Cam not recognizing the defensive adjustments, or Cam getting amped up and sailing balls high. Maybe a combination.

I personally think that at this stage of his career, the game hasn't completely slowed down for Cam yet, so he gets into mini-funks during the game where he isn't planting his feet correctly or reading the D correctly. The good thing is he seems to adjust after a couple of series. He only played one year of real college ball, and is only in year two of the pros, but I feel like he just now might be starting to turn the corner. Guys like Rodgers got to sit behind Favre for three years before getting thrown in, and Eli didnt get it down til year four or five.

So Cam had a lights out rookie year and everyone expected that to be the bar set. He's gonna be just fine, and the past 4-5 games has been his best stretch as a pro by far. He is progressing exactly as anyone should/could hope that he would.

A quote regarding the Panther Org.... "But one problem they don’t have is a question mark at the quarterback position. They answered that question for years to come on the day they drafted Cam Newton"

Hell yeah... at least this time around we arent rebuilding with David Carr, Matt Moore, and then Jimmy Clausen.

Read the article, then the comments. Some of the ignorant comments on there boggle my mind. One guy said something referring to Cam's celebrations then said he should be more like RG3 and not act like a 5 year old. RGIII falls to the ground and raises his arms after every touchdown pass.

Didn't the NFL penalize Cam for unsportsmanlike conduct for going to the ground on a TD celebration in his very first game?

Imagine if we hadn't gone to read option as our base after that Cam TD run. Stupid playcalling almost cost us another one.

Yes they did. Maybe the rule is you cant go to the ground in the endzone?

I thought it was for using the ball as a prop, but I could be wrong.
