Over the last three games

go back and look at his last 10 games then

19 TDs, 5 INTs....and lead us in rushing most weeks.

If we have had an average run game, OL play and ST.....we would have been rolling. Like last year, not enough play at a high enough level to just help him out.

yeah, that would at least make us not look so crazy when we brag about just 3 games. overall, he ranks 14 in passer rating, better than jay cutler but below tony romo. he's tied for 20th in touchdowns, and 17th in interceptions. past 3 games, yeah, he's been balling. but that's nothing to be jawin' over.

Indeed... showing the trait of submission, be it organizationally or in fandom, is always the path to great success in the NFL.

have some pie, brotha. i never said anything about "submission."

Then maybe you don't understand what "tucking ones tail" means.

That's what the submissive member of the pack does when the alpha wolf is around.

"tucking one's tail?" be it ignorance or arrogance, it has the same effect when your team has only won 4 games and we are bragging about how good our qb has been in only the past 3. that has nothing to do with "tucking one's tail."

YOU are the one suggesting that we do so.

and your hubris is telling you go out and start bragging about how we're world beaters, and no team can stop us. get out of here with that poo. you seem to be the only one that gives a damn enough to even comment. "tucking tail" requires there to be a fight; there is none. only thing present is some people bragging. sure, cam has done well, but his body of work is middle of the pack. learn how to use common, everyday idioms before coming on an internet message board to insult others with them.

Can't judge him on just a passing scale. Can't erase 7 TDs from the discussion and the fact he leads us in rushing. He is 8th in TDs.....not 20th if you look at what players are doing from the position. He probably is higher than 8th individually .....he is 8th vs others teams collective QBs.

He actually has been very good at not turning it over this year considering what is asked of him. A couple were mainly if not all on the WR as well.

don't get me wrong, i'm not criticizing cam. i love what he does. but 3 games isn't an accurate reflection of overall play. i was more-so just trying to inject a sobering though, and didn't mean for it to turn into a 10 post argument.

I don't really believe all of Cam's slumping was just due to poor coaching. When you think about it, he took the league by storm last season and teams didn't know how to defend him. Toward the end of the season they started to figure him out minus the Tampa game. This season he struggled still with how teams were defending the offense, and it seems, where most young QBs turn the corner in their third year, Cam has done it half way through his second. I don't expect 10 tds and 0 ints to continue, but I do expect this is the Cam Newton we will see for the rest of this season, and going forward. He has adjusted to the league adjusting to him. Now they are f#*%'d.

You cats ain't seen nothing yet! Just wait until we can get some coaching that will teach Cam to throw with anticipation. He will really set the league on fire once that happens. So far, Cam has been depending on raw arm strength.

Quote from an NFL article on how Cam is turning it around:

The coaches spent much of the summer trying to diversify their option package, in an effort to stay a step ahead. However, after that rough start, they decided to revert to what they'd done well in 2011 in those looks, which helped Newton play faster. By taking some things off of Newton's plate, offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski and quarterbacks coach Mike Shula could focus on quickening Newton's decision-making and refining his footwork.
They took things off of Cams plate to let him play faster.

Some nfl qbs over the past three games.

Cam: 10 tds, 0 ints, 1,071 yards

Brees: 4 tds, 9 ints, 962 yards

Brady: 9 tds, 1 ints, 857 yards

Rodgers: 2 tds, 2 ints, 678 yards

Ryan: 4 tds, 2 ints, 860 yards

RGIII: 7 tds, 1 ints, 945 yards

No one has even been that close to Cam except Brady, he has been easily the most dominant qb in the game the last three games. It is kind of crazy how he turns out when he is hot.

Wow thats crazy when you look at it that way. Cam also has more games with a QB rating of 100 or better than Rodgers does this year btw
