When he passes I expect a completion now, before I feared for an interception.

What I love is even though he is playing "smarter" in those pressure situations, he still stays aggressive. It would have been easy to throw it short of the goal line on that last drive after that penalty, but he just kept plugging at the endzone. Now, that one to Smitty where he had Lafell, his aggression may have gotten the best of him and wanting to put the game on ice with another TD, but I'm OK with that. As long as he can maintain this play and continuously improve some facet of his game, we will be set for years to come.

The staff is coaching with more confidence too. Running a 2 minute drill? Madness!

He's gonna improve, and he's gonna be a great QB for years.

No next step. He was an animal last year. he's still an animal. Just confirmation, no next step.

This is a side note...i'm reading this thread and I look up to see the football score. Verizon has a Microsoft HTC 8x commercial on..Who should be one of the pictures in the phone, none other than your QB. I literally had to take a double take tomake sure. too funny.

Didn't know Cam had a Microsoft HTC deal...Low and below, yes he does...[url="http://wmpoweruser.com/microsoft-gets-cam-newton-on-board-for-htc-8x-promotion/"]http://wmpoweruser.com/microsoft-gets-cam-newton-on-board-for-htc-8x-promotion/[/url]

Back to the regular schedule comments.

There is a huge difference over the last 6 games. It's so obvious. Everytime he is rushed he now checks down. he knows when it's coming and knows how to get rid of the ball. He's been playing like a top 10 QB for several weeks now.

Was just thinking the same thing. Looks like the game slowed down for him again.

The big plays have always been there. What's been missing has been consistency.

Today, he's been a lot more consistent. That's what I've been hoping for.

Would feel[i] a little[/i] better if it were against a better team, but I'll take what we get.

it doesn't hurt when you run a more traditional offense, utilize his strengths on bootlegs & things like that.

I don't think the game ever "slowed" down for him last year, he was just reacting to what he saw. The first couple of games he was indecisive this year and it lead to mistakes, but now the game is finally slowing down for him.

I also really like his body language and the way he is interacting with his team mates and coaches. Maybe the early season struggles and criticism by the media will be a blessing is disguise.

As most of us knew he would.

Our football team as a whole have elevated their level of play out there, does wonders for a young QB.

The future is bright boys.

it kills me that rivera and chud's attempt to stay "one step ahead" had taken us two steps back and ruined our season before we even had a chance IMO... hopefully JR realizes this is just fool's gold (like gantt said)

He has been playing very well for the last 5 or 6 games.

Of course, the next next step is to play this way when we still have a shot at the playoffs.

He's playing well for a player that we all know wants to win championships; at a time where we have no shot. I am hopeful he will get out the gate next year on fire.

I'm glad to see this team coming around as a team.

Hopefully next season winning will become more frequently and Cam won't have as much pressure placed on him to do it all.

He will have the same amount of pressure next year as he does this year. Learning to be a QB in the NFL is about learning to handle that pressure. Cam appears to be learning to handle it.

A win is a win no matter when you get it. And winning one on the road is even tougher. This team is hitting on all cylinders and if for only a few weeks, their play lets us peek into our potential future. Instead of finding things to bitch about, I am going to enjoy the wins as they come. Plenty of time to whine once the regular season is over.
