It is very hard to screen with a qb like Cam as the defense will have players spying on him on all plays, those spies will also be in great position to get to the screen receiver.
No screens == less YAC.
Same reasoning with quick throws, Cam can buy himself time so no need to use them (of course unless your RT is named Bell and Mario Williams are on the other team...).
That, and the strongest arm in the league.

I think we need some more games played to draw any conclusions

RG3's stats are just fluff, especially three games into this season as garbage time rolls around. He completes a 2 yard competion and it turns into a 25 yard play.
I'm glad he's getting the Cam Newton treatment now. Washington fans have been insufferable.
I said from day one he wasn't anything like people said he was. All you had to do was watch him play in college, it's like these analysts heard someone say something once and then they all just repeated each other.

It's a lot easier to read and listen to the garbage they spew about Newton after a win.

I hear you. But as Jarhead said "it's still early. Let's wait and see'?
It's also safe to say, that Carolina's receivers aren't the toughest or shiftiest in the league as far as YAC is concerned. Carolina's receivers, don't even fight for, over defenders (on imperfect throws) as you see so many other receivers do all the time.
Of course, KBarner, may have something to do with that, when he comes back, and if Cam/Shula runs screens for Ted Ginn.
