David Newton: Shula Proving To Be The Right Choice

I enjoy reading David Newton's stuff, but the man may as well be writing for Panthers.com, as big a homer as he is.

 

Count me in with those who feel he needs to do his thing against a good defense.  I have been loving these past few weeks, but I miss the absolute confidence I had in my home team back in the early Fox years.  I think that Cam Newton is talented enough to make anyone look good, and if Shula can just bring that out then that's as good as he needs to be.  But it needs to come out against the great defenses, and so far we haven't beaten a team with one of those.

 

Of course, Atlanta doesn't have one either, which means Sunday ought to be a lot of fun. :)

 

Honestly, if the choice is between that and what we used to get on ESPN, I'll take it.

I think Shula has finally taken Newton by the hand and spent that one on one time with him that he needed. Cam is not staring down receivers and his FW has improved. I'm happy with his progress and am surprised as well. One foot on the bandwagon.

Finally taken him by the hand? He was Cam's QB coach the past two years... They have been and still are pretty tight. Never have been concerned about that relationship.

The fact they had a great relationship and Cam wanted him was a factor in why he was hired.  Now if the statement that Dorsey took him by the hand and worked with Cam showing how to dissect film and defenses before and after the snap, then it might be correct.  I understand Cam crediting Dorsey with some of his progress this year as well.

While Cam struggle the first 2 weeks, the Offense still moved the ball. Since Cam's revival against the Giants, we have moved the ball with aggressive precision. Shula has this O dialed in nicely. And he deserves the credit for doing so.

Shula got the job by convincing Rivera that his plan for the O would work. His relationship with Cam was a factor. But his plan won him the job. And his plan is coming together very well.

It would be almost impossible to draw up an easier offense to defend with this group of players. Horribly predictable and uncreative. Seems designed to mak the quarterback look as bad as possible by minimizing his strengths and accentuating his weaknesses. Just awful.
