Why Cam Newton's arm isn't done and how to fix next year

Recommended Posts



I'll give you the benefit of the doubt here and say I believe you. The Cam info really doesn't sound good, neither recovery option is enticing. 

The OL stuff is all pretty much as expected. Kalils gone and we'll try to upgrade at G and C, with Van Roten and Larsen the backup plans. Williams back on a 1 year deal to reestablish his value and at RT with Moton at LT. If we hit on a G or C in draft or FA we could have a great OL if Williams and Moton stay healthy.

Works for me, I’m fine signing Williams to a 2-3 yr deal incentives loaded contract to see how he recovers. Bottom line is figuring out the best solution to getting cam healthy

I really hope we give Moton an entire off season and training camp knowing he will be a left tackle. He should have stayed at left tackle all damn season. I get Clark is a better left tackle than right but we could have just passed on him and found a serviceable right tackle since they are way more common.

Just hurry up and get Ron and Hurney the fug out of Charlotte before they can do anymore damage.

why are you hashtagging?  are you a 13 year old girl from 5 years ago?

Yes, but he was not a 13 year old girl 5 years ago.  He was a 13-year old boy five years ago.  And we are all OK with that--just not the stupid posts.

My experience (shoulder surgery twice and I watched HOUSE for several seasons) is that the surgery to repair the scar tissue does not usually create more scar tissue--but I am not sure (obviously).  It can usually be scoped (again, speculating based on my experience)  I can't imagine, however, a $20m QB not knowing the source of the problem, if that is accurate. If all it was is scar tissue, would Cam and RR not say so?

So normally I share my insider information in preseason and try to shed light on a few things that are about to come to pass like last year and Newton and his progression and Samuel and his time table. Sometimes it's not 100% thing because players respond differently and heal differently. Well here's my not so prophetic information on Newton to date.

1) Is his Sholder in need of surgery or is he done. Well that's a tricky question and my friend had this to say. Medically Newton is dealing with scar tissue and there are two choices. Go in and clean it out or try to loosen it by time and training. From my friends point of view it's a hard decision because surgery could lead to more tissue build up or more range depending on how his body responds. While therapy could permanently solve the problem but take more time. Either way Newton isn't Hurt per say it's just he hasn't fully healed.

2) The second problem comes from his inability to step up and drive through on his throws. It's well known in the locker room that Van Roten isn't great and Kalil one and two are both done. Ones probably retiring and the other has it on his mind. Williams on the other hand is expected to recover well but is willing to sign in Carolina because his recovery will push past training camp. Word was originally he was ready to become big money somewhere else.

Well that's all I have for now. Hope it helps shed some light.

Idk who your friend is but he’s a smart guy. Choose PT, all day, every day, every time. At least conservatively before even considering surgery. You can’t just repetitively cut into muscle, fascia, etc and expect the tissue to heal the same. Newton needs time which is unfortunately a sparce commodity in professional sports.

Because he didn't take a helmet directly to the shoulder? But even in the first 8 games, we never threw it down field

I know nothing about his shoulder or scar tissue ,,   but he has not thrown a long pass all season..  Even in the Ravens game they brought in T Heinieki to throw the hail mary at the end of the half..   Heinieki didn't and threw to Olsen setting up a FG .. but Cam hasn't been Cam all year,,  it's been short passes all year,  and the weeks have gone by , they've been shorter passes..
