Captain Munnerlyn sees “night and day” difference in Cam Newton’s arm

AP

Cornerback Captain Munnerlyn was on a familiar practice field on Tuesday, but he wasn’t on the same side of the field as the players he knows best.

Munnerlyn signed with the Bills last weekend and he joined his new team on a trip for joint practices with the Panthers this week. Munnerlyn spent his first five and last two seasons with the Panthers and spent much of that time facing off with Cam Newton during practices.

Munnerlyn got a chance to see Newton on Tuesday and shared his thoughts on how the Panthers quarterback is doing after reworking his throwing motion in the wake of last year’s shoulder injury.

“It’s like night and day,” Munnerlyn said, via the Charlotte Observer. “His arm looks a whole lot better. You can tell he’s been working. I’m expecting big things.”

Munnerlyn isn’t lacking for company in Carolina on that front, but final judgment on how it all came together for Newton won’t come for quite a while.

  1. He still backed away from a fumble in the Super Bowl. Never Forget!

  2. It’s great to see Cam healthy. Look for a big year from him guys! I wouldn’t be surprised if we get another Superbowl again this year with Superman leading the way. It would be wise for all the bandwagon fans to grab on to Supermans cape now before the season starts so you’ll look smarter when we’re in the Superbowl. Fly Panthers, fly!!

  3. It looks like the haters are out in full force still crying about the fumble in the Superbowl. If Cam would have picked up the ball when it was at his feet, he could have got hit on the knees and tore his acl. The Denver defense was trying to hurt Cam that game. Don’t worry about the haters Cam. You did the right thing. We need you healthy. We’ll get em next time!!

  4. Cam’s arm was never the real problem.

    No, it’s that space between the ears.

    Speaking of ears…

  5. Let’s face it, the guy’s a big time QB, but any issues I’ve ever noticed about Cam didn’t have anything to do with his arm. But there’s only one Tom Brady, and the other 31 QB’s are kind of in the same boat. No use singling out one guy. The main problem with Cam, if you can call it a problem, is that he has as much physical ability as anyone who’s ever stepped onto the field. The QB position is less about pure physical gifts, like arm talent, and more about preparation and mental toughness. But like I said, Cam’s pretty much in the same boat with the other 31. It’s kind of like when Michael Jordan played basketball. He kept a lot of great players from winning titles. That’s what Brady’s doing. Cam Newton has won a lot of football games.

    He gets paid a lot of money to FALL ON THE BALL AND TRY TO WIN THE – wait for it – SUPER BOWL!! There is no defending that non-effort. And what is this “fly Panthers fly” stuff. Panthers don’t fly. Come up with a better analogy.

  7. The average starting QB takes over 900 snaps per season. But hey, let’s continue to judge someone’e entire career on one single play back in the 2015 season. You guys must be really fun at parties.

  8. Cam couldn’t throw last year and should have been put on IR. How the team kept him playing was negligent and could have been career ending. It’s good that he’s able to throw now and seems to be recovered. Now if he can make quicker decisions and throw accurately, they might have something.
