Cams worst problem

He actually connected with like six different targets today.

That first drive he was on fuging fire. That drop in the end zone was a game changer imo.


Yes he did well on the first drive but it was downhill after that.

Cam went 21 for 39 today. Think about this, we had Smitty, LaFell and Barner alone drop 5 passes inbetween them. How can this offense ever be in-sync if our targets can't make keep up with Newton?

Yes, combination of things led to that downward spiral. Started with the drops. Without them, Cam would have been 10/10 with a TD.

Those picks later were definitely on him, but you could tell his confidence took a dip after that first drive. He tried to do too much.

Had Barner, LaFell and Smitty not dropped those passes, Cam would've boasted a 66% completion rate today. Newton made mistakes but he wasn't inaccurate today. Those missed opportunities were confidence killers.

Newton's known issues:

 

- Inconsistency

- Holding the ball too long

- Footwork and mechanics

- Starts well, finishes poorly

- Sometimes stares down or forces the ball to receivers

 

Breaking each one down...

 

Inconsistency: You're never gonna solve that with a gunslinger QB.  You can minimize it, but you'll never get rid of it.

 

Holding the ball too long: That's on Newton.  He just has to learn to make his decisions more quickly.

 

Footwork and mechanics: Coaching issue mainly.  Lack of good OL play will reinforce bad habits and make this worse if you don't fix it.  The longer it goes on the less chance you have of correcting it.

 

Starts well, finishes poorly: Also primarily on Newton, but coaching is big here too.  Most gunslingers are slow starters who get better late in the game (i.e. 4th quarter comebacks) but newton is the opposite.

 

Sometimes stares down or forces the ball to receivers: Another coaching issue.

Cam is surrounded in 2013 by less talent than he was at Auburn in 2010.  That is the problem.  I don't even care anymore.  I am like the guy in the old cell phone commercial.

Cam is an average QB and it's time we all accept that.

Sad to say but Payton and Belichick would have implemented an offense around Newton's strengths and made him unstoppable by now.

And Tom Brady was a game manager until Belichick built an offense around him.

Yeah but Cam can't even manage the game...misses easy throws one game...throws the ball to a double covered Smith for INT's the next..That type of management will put you out of business quick..as Ron is figuring out.

Well, if Cam Newton was as good as Tom Brady you'd have a point.
