Cam Newton proving a quick study in the team’s offense

Cam Newton signed with the Panthers on Nov. 11. He played nine snaps three days later and started and played all 51 snaps Sunday.

The quarterback has completed 24 of 31 passes for 197 yards and three touchdowns. He also has 60 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 13 carries.

Newton has proved to be a quick study.

But he isn’t interested in discussing what has been, only what’s to come.

“I’m done talking about what it’s been like, and I’m all about what talking about what it’s going to be. Or what I’m doing moving forward,” Newton said Friday, via Darin Gantt of the team website. “We’re here. We have an issue in front of us right now, and that’s the Miami Dolphins, and we’re going to need all hands on deck moving forward.”

Newton echoed coach Matt Rhule from earlier in the day when the quarterback was asked how he could improve.

“It’s just a constant reminder each and every day to get better,” Newton said. “Coach spoke beautifully today about competitive stamina, and holding yourself to a standard each and every day, not just when it’s going good, not just when it’s going bad every single day. So that’s been my mentality with pretty much everything.”

  1. 1 game, with a couple of snaps in another. I will wait for a bigger sample size before calling him a quick study.

  2. But…but…Cam wears funny clothes and didn’t jump on that fumble that one time…

  3. Learning the offense and actually throwing the ball accurately more than 6 yards past the line of scrimmage are two entirely different things.

  4. Miami’s defense has been giving QBs big problems over the past few weeks. I do not see a good outing for Cam.

  5. These Pat’s fans crowing about offensive calculus seem to forget that even Brady on calculus fell to a great four man rush.

  6. As long as CMac is healthy and run and catch the ball, Newton will look good. Cam can’t throw like he used to, and he can’t continue to scramble, he’s an injury waiting to happen. A short term fix on a team with Sam Darnold as their QB alternative…..need I say anymore why Cam looks like a good option.

  7. Oh my God some of these comments about Cam Newton are just ridiculous… Cam ran the offense that Joe Brady game planed against WFT. Cam’s play was better than I expected for his short time back with the Panthers. The TD pass to CMac was a thing of beauty and one of the best throws of the season by any QB. And the TD run by Cam shows he can still run with the best of them in the NFL.
