It took almost eight years Trai Turner Jersey , y’all, but Cam Newton has finally become a good quarterback. The former first round pick turned in a performance for the ages
against the Dallas Cowboys and has pulled his season average completion
percentage up to 65%. As we all know, completing 65% of your passes on average
is the absolute benchmark for good quarterbacking. It’s a black and white
standard.I assume that is the story of the season. I assume that everybody who
spent years claiming that Newton was overrated during his 2015 NFL MVP season,
who was clamoring for Derek Anderson to start, and who has, for
months Authentic Kawann Short Jersey , been trying to buy passage on the Taylor Heinicke bandwagon has now been quieted. That their support has been thrown
unequivocally behind Cameron Jerrell Newton, efficient passer of the football,
as the quarterback of the Carolina Panthers for now and hereafter.Never we mind
that Newton has averaged almost 40 yards a game on the ground. Never we mind
that those yards often came on critical third and fourth down opportunities.
Those yards and those plays aren’t valuable when produced by a quarterback and
neither are the 55 touchdowns he has rushed for since entering the league.The
Panthers stuck by their first overall pick for longer than many franchises would
have. His ascendancy to being a good and relevant quarterback in his eighth
season qualifies him as a late bloomer. Other first overall picks didn’t receive
as much as time as Newton has to prove that they were good quarterbacks. Alex
Smith only received seven seasons in San Francisco, which is mathematically less
than Newton’s eight. David Carr, meanwhile, was released after four seasons by
the Houston Texans.Ironically Youth Mario Addison Jersey , both of those quarterbacks became good in their last seasons with their original teams. They posted 70% and 68.9%
completion ratings respectively. Maybe that is the sign that this is Newton’s
final year. Maybe the Panthers are just letting Derek Anderson rest for a season
so that he can take the league by storm in 2019.It will be a tough call for
general manager Marty Hurney, to be sure. On the one hand, Newton is now a good
quarterback. On the other hand, the Panthers probably have a better chance of
making the Super Bowl without him. It’s not like he ever proved capable of
carrying their entire offense — kicking and screaming — through the playoffs all
by himself.As for 2018, Newton will probably try to maintain his performance as
a good quarterback. He can do that if he keeps his season average completion
percentage above 65%, I’m told. That will probably mean he has to stop running
so gosh darn much. Smiling http://www.panthersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-devin-funchess-jersey , too. That’s OK, though. The Panthers have never been hurt by leaving a few first
downs on the table, letting drives stall out, and not scoring in the red
zone.Ask CSR: What’s your favorite Panthers season? The Carolina Panthers have
been nothing if not a roller coaster for their fans since the team’s inception
in 1993. They have been to two Super Bowls out of eight playoff seasons. They
are the only team to have won the NFC South crown in consecutive seasons — even
managing to do it three times in a row from 2013-2015 — and they are also the
team to have won the most NFC South crowns to date. Yet they still have not, in
twenty three seasons, posted consecutive winning seasons. I asked the Cat
Scratch Reader staff to tell me about their favorite season as a Panthers fan
and their responses were about as scattered as the Panthers’ history. Take a
look and then hang out and tell us about your favorite season.Erik SommersEvan

After the tie with Cincinnati Shaq Thompson Jersey , I was able to relax and root for my favorite part of sports: improbabilities. Squeaking into the playoffs in 2014 with a losing
record helped take the sting out of watching an under-performing team each week.
The way I look at it is that I’m not here just to watch the team win it all. I’m
here to be entertained, one way or another. I personally found the NFC South
play tag with their playoff spot, with every team trying to scream “not it!” the
loudest that year, made for highly entertaining television.
