Newton wins another NFC Offensive Player of the Week award

AP

It’s getting to be a copy and paste situation (not that we’re that smart here): Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

That’s three such awards in five weeks for Newton. The last time that happened was 2007, when Tom Brady of the Patriots won three player of the week awards in five weeks while quarterbacking an undefeated team.

The award is the sixth of Newton’s career and came after he threw five touchdown passes in the wildest game of the weekend, a 41-38 win in New Orleans. The winning points came with 1:05 left on a Newton pass to Jerricho Cotchery.

Newton was 28-of-41 passing for 331 yards. He also ran 10 times for 49 yards.

For the season, Newton has 25 touchdown passes vs. 10 interceptions, 2,797 passing yards, 476 rushing yards and seven rushing touchdowns.

  1. “Newton was 28-of-41 passing for 331 yards.”

    And had two other certain TD passes dropped by his concrete-hands “#1” receiver.

  2. It’s gonna be hilarious when they are losing late in their first playoff game by 20 and Newton is sitting on the bench with his SUPERMAN cleats and GATORADE TOWEL over his head with a big pussface on !

  3. BOOM. Finally getting the respect he has been earning since he set all those records as a rookie. Where are all the guys who enjoy bashing him for making one mistake as a teenager? The guys who said he would never be like the QB sitting on the Colts bench? The guys who thought he could only scramble?

    Time to admit Cam Newton is a fantastic football player as well as a true leader on and off the field.

  4. Having a complete team equipped with a weekly 100-yard rushing back is what sets the stage for successful quarterback play. With that said, Newton has the skills to overcome mistakes, take advantage of his team’s solid foundation, and execute at a high level. MVP candidate and Super Bowl favorite/contender

  5. “Against the dead last, 32nd ranked defense… Congrats Mr. Mature
    One and done in playoffs…..again!”

    ———-

    I’m pretty sure they won their first playoff game least year

  6. Russell Wilson had a great performance too and he has to split his prep time helping Santa get all the toys made by Christmas. Most Valuable Elf!

  7. really curious how the “i can’t wait ’til they’re one and done in the playoffs” crowd reacts when they’re wrong. keep hating, more excuses, or deafening silence?

  8. Finally, a Heisman winning QB lives up to his hype. The list of busts since the early 90s is long for this overrated award of the so-called “best” college player. Do not draft QBs from any of the Florida schools (Tebow, Weinke, Danny Wuerffel, Charlie Ward, Gino Torretta).

  9. “Newton has 25 touchdown passes vs. 10 interceptions, 2,797 passing yards, 476 rushing yards and seven rushing touchdowns.”

    I know it’s never gonna be the popular thing to do, but the QB stats should place as much emphasis on rushing TDs as they do passing.

    Add Cam’s running TDs to his passes and he has 32. If you’re not blind, he’s your guy as much for what he does as how he does it. Right now Palmer and Wilson are his only challengers.

  10. Can is MVP and all you haters can’t stand that he plays the position different than you want him to play it. He will win MVP and it will be a long night at all the haters homes as they cry because Brady and Palmer didn’t win. Cam’s brevado is backed by his stellar play. Go Panthers!

  11. They played one good defense all year when the hawks were a shadow of themselves and not playing well at all.

    Then you have Brady, who plays solid defenses all the time, literally willing his team up and down the field w stone hands lafell and chandler, and still beats cam in every statistical measure besides rushing.

    And cam didn’t have to deal with the offseason. Oh yea, and Brady doesn’t have a top 3 defense and top 5 rushing attack. Have the panthers had one big injury since benjamin went down?

    Even is cam wins the MVP, Brady will take the SB MVP once again and hoist the Lombardi. Cam won’t even make the big game

  12. If this trend continues, he’s likely to be the most decorated football player ever. And honestly, with the way things are looking here in Charlotte, I don’t see the trend changing.

    You have still include Brady in the MVP talks.

    He has 34 total TDs, 6 INTs and 3912 yds.

    Wins mean more so right I have Cam ahead, but you can’t ignore 1200 yds more passing. If you want to include Cams rushing yardage then cut it down to 700+ more yds total

  14. Now an MVP and super bowl ring to his case.
    ===========================
    It’ll be funny when both do not happen lol

  15. The hate is unreal. Even if you face a crap defense you still have to perform. Yes, he has help. Every good QB has help in some form. No team wins a Super Bowl on the back of one player. Cam has been outstanding and yes, you do have to still include Tommy Boy in the conversation. The season has not yet concluded. The award is still open although no team’s offense is based so much on one player than Carolina’s. The only number one or two receiver they have is on IR. Every one else is a role player. Stewart has been so strong and consistent this year. The O line is patchwork at it’s finest. Cam is still taking too many hits but they find a way to make it happen. Going into New Orleans is always a tough task in this division and it will continue to be as long as Brees is there. Carolina wins because they play D, run the ball pretty well, and avoid turnovers while taking the ball away. That sounds like a Championship formula to me. Just have to continue to do it consistently.

  16. He certainly should be in every MVP conversation based on the season so far.

    He’s a great talent, seems like a decent sort, just would prefer he leave out the dance routines. Kinda juvenile.

    You just scored a TD, in the NFL, against the best athletes in the world. That IS the dance. Act like you’ve been there before.

    If you want to dance, there’s a different TV show for that.

    The question then becomes,

    Will he restructure and take less to stay with a team long enough to be in TB’s neighborhood?

    Good of the many, or the one? Time will tell which is the real Cam

    Did you forget Cam was Tebow’s backup at Florida before he unceremoniously moved to Auburn?
