I also take the 300-400 yard games with a grain of salt, since everyone is putting them up. I have heard some interesting theories about how a lockout could actually help offenses. Limited contact practices were a by-product, which hurts defenses due to minimal full contact reps. Not saying that is a fact, but interesting theory.
W/out question the defenses are just awful. Throwing for 300 yards isn't a big deal anymore. But still, Newtown made some great throws yesterday and 2 of those picks were just outstanding plays by Woodson.

Re: Mad props to Cam Newton

It's been 5 games now for Cam and he continues to prove idiots like me wrong... Seriously

10 Total Tds and 1600 passing yards is incredible for a 22 year old rookie.

Re: Mad props to Cam Newton

I think Cam fell into the right situation. Small market team with not many expectations due to the team being in full on rebuild mode. Even if they have a losing record this year, with another round of draft picks and free agency (and avoiding the sophomore slump), the Panthers can become in the NFC South next year.

Good situation or not, rookie QBs did not throw for yards at the pace Newton is throwing at. Sure, some of it is his coordinator being really good, but the QB has to still make plays, and Newton has been making them.

Besides, I think Carolina looked really bad because of poor QB play and their prior offense being rather simplistic. The rest of the team might not have been THAT bad talentw-se. They now have a more dynamic offense and seem to have found their QB.

I guess I was talking more in regards to the off the field. Because of the whole scandal involving his dad, he was pretty much under a microscope throughout the end of his college career and during the offseason. Had he gone to a big market team, he would have continue to be under that microscope, and who knows how that would have affected him.

Newton has a ton of ability and is very gifted physically. He has obviously shown the commitment that many pundits thought he would not. And I feel that being in a small market has freed him from some of the outside pressures and allow him to focus on the game.

Re: Mad props to Cam Newton

I'll eat another slice of Cam Crow pie, but I'm not really going to believe anything until about year 2 or 3. I'd say the same thing with any QB really. I think the real test will be the last half of this season or the first half of next. New coach, offense, so there isn't game tape on them. Yet.

Yeah, um I'm gonna disagree with you on this one.
I don't think the spotlight gets much hotter then not only being a SEC QB at Auburn but being in national spotlight for pay for play scandal while en route to an undefeated national championship season.

I'm gonna wager a wild guess and say that Cam handles pressure pretty okay.

Re: Mad props to Cam Newton

Cam has definitely far surpassed my expectations of what I thought he could do right away as a rookie. He's far more polished as a QB than I expected. Carolina seems to have a bright future with him.

Re: Mad props to Cam Newton

He is a pretty good talent. I definitely thought he would be a dud. He is a great personality and has the game on the field to back.

And he has awesome pearly whites. Weird that I notice that? Perhaps I was a dentist in a past life.

Re: Mad props to Cam Newton

I am from Charlotte and getting caught up in the Cam Newton phenom. He is a pleasant surprise. Now waiting for Tebow!! Go Tebow!!! I am begining to think these so called pro system college QBs are being hurt by running a pro style offense in college. The difference in speed between college and the pros makes their so-called pro style offense experience a moot point.

That's actually not a bad point, I still think college players who play in pro style offenses in college have a better chance to succeed in the NFL....but playing in a pro style in college is so different from the pros because of the speed that maybe its not that big of an advantage.

The spread offense is beginning to show up in the NFL now, so the "pro style" offense is not necessarily a requirement any more.

The Lions are a team who runs it very well at the pro level.
