Greg Cosell's Week 5 analysis: Cam Newton's improvement is clear

07 October 2014 - 02:04 PM

 

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has had to stay in the pocket more this season, because of ankle and rib injuries. And he’s becoming a better quarterback as a result.

 

Ultimately, you have to teach a guy everything about playing from the pocket, if you’re starting from the premise that the game is played at its highest level from the pocket. And to play the game really well from the pocket, you have to learn the subtleties from playing in the pocket. You never get to those subtleties if you leave the pocket at the first flash of color from the opponent's pass rush.
 
 
You can be a difficult player to defend even if you’re erratic from the pocket, but if you’re erratic from the pocket you’re an erratic player. That’s what Newton was before this year. Now, because he is tethered to the pocket because of injuries (and maybe a different approach from the Panthers' staff), he’s developing as a pocket quarterback.

Are we going to completely ignore that Kuechly hasn't been playing well?

I'm not sure what's up with him, but his tackling and coverage has been horrible. I counted at least five missed tackles.

PFF kisses the hand of Luke Kuechly

Linebackers: Luke Kuechly, CAR (+5.5) and Thomas Davis, CAR (+3.9)

The league’s most formidable linebackers. After their awesome 2013 comes an equally awesome start to 2013. Does it get any better than these two?

Both Davis and Kuechly named to PFF week one team.

Is Shula waiting till Sunday to use the double TE sets?
