Cam Newton rated least consistent passing
QB in NFL A new NFL.com Photo Essay lists the five most consistent and 5 most least consistent QBs in the NFL by passer rating. Note that in the head line for this piece I added in the word ‘passing’ QB rather than leave it general as the anonymous author did. It’s a valid change because the only measure used in the ‘analysis’ is QB passer rating. So obviously passer rating isn’t everything considering the Panthers went 11-5 last season.Cam Newton has a 61-47-1 record as a starting QB in the NFL.He also has a 3-4 record in the NFL playoffs. I expect Newton to improve both of those marks in 2018 in spite of this inconsistency.Yes even the staunchest Panthers fan has to admit Newton has been inconsistent as a passer. He is a career 58% passer with a season high of just under 62%. Yet those of us that have watched him play since he was a rookie know it is a little deeper than that. First off Newton is a very good deep ball passer. But the deep pass game is not kind to QB passer completion rates. Actually CSR’s Jon Delong laid out this argument last year.So to call Newton the most inconsistent QB in the NFL without the context is very misleading. Newton obviously brings much more to the table Color Rush Shaq Thompson Jersey , a power running game from the QB position never seen before by the league. Yet he still has to make good decisions, protect the football and execute plays, even if they are more run than pass. Newton may be inconsistent as a passer and maybe he always will. It doesn’t mean there aren’t 2 dozen teams out there in the NFL that wouldn’t jump at the chance of adding him to their roster. The truth is if Newton should get his passer rating up over 65% look out NFL! He averaged just under 60% when the Panthers went 15-1 in 2015. Of course that was bolstered by his running ability but still. The less reliant on Newton’s legs the Panthers offense is the more successful I think they can be. That way when they truly need Newton’s legs to get that last yard, whether it is for a first down or a TD, Newton can still get it. The 2018 is setting up to be a banner year for Cam Newton and the Panthers offense imo. They have released the ‘Shula shackles’ (a reference to former Panthers OC Mike Shula) and replaced them with the genius of Norv Turner. I think if anyone can unlock Newton potential as a passer it is Turner. What I’m alluding to here is that the final factor affecting Newton’s passing has been the play calling. We’ve had some real head scratchers in the past. One week the offense looks well oiled http://www.authenticscarolinapanthers.com/cheap-jarius-wright-jersey , the next it sputters. Much of that can be attributed to game planning. Again, I expect Turner to change that.So tear him down if it makes you feel better Mr. Anonymous NFL writer. In the end it won’t make you sleep any better. Unless of course you get on the Newton train now. It’s good to be a fun ride.Panthers are expected to put Daryl Williams on injured reserve The story of the Panthers’ offensive line continues to be a sad one. According to Ian Rapaport of NFL Network, the Panthers are expected to put offensive tackle Daryl Williams on injured reserve. The designation would sideline the All Pro tackle for at least eight weeks. The caveat withat is he has to be on the final 53 man roster at the end of the preseason to be eligible to return, so this designation likely won’t become official until the first week of September. If his health allows it, Williams will be able to start practicing with the team again after six weeks and eligible to return to the active roster for the Panthers week 9 tilt against the Buccaneers. It’s unfortunate that the Panthers will be without a key piece on their offensive line for such a significant portion of the season Youth Greg Olsen Jersey , but it opens the door for Taylor Moton to get experience and show what he’s got. The presence of the second year pro marks the beginning of this new thing the Panthers are trying out called offensive line depth, and it’s coming in handy now. Look for Moton to get extra reps in the preseason to get him up to speed in time for the Panthers regular season opener in just over a month.
