Panthers | Cam Newton becoming more efficient
Tue, 22 Oct 2013 17:59:25 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton has completed 35 of his 43 passes (81.3 percent) in the past two weeks, good for 446 yards and four touchdowns, without an interception. Carolina won both contests. He has completed 65.3 percent of his passes and has thrown twice as many touchdown passes as INTs this season. He credits improved preparation, aided by offensive coordinator Mike Shula, quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey and backup passer Derek Anderson.

Among the positive developments for Newton has been an enhanced ability to go through his progressions and get to his third and fourth reads. It's a work-in-progress, because Newton still holds on to the ball too long at times, according to head coach Ron Rivera, but he's seen progress.

As Rivera notes, Newton played only one season of major college football before he declared for the NFL Draft, so it's unsurprising that the third-year QB has taken a couple of years to mature. There are still questions about his makeup, but this is a positive sign for Newton's owners, particularly those in long-term keeper leagues.
