Cam Newton difference ‘like night and day’ with new throwing motion

first_imgA post shared by Cam Newton (@cameron1newton) on Aug 7, 2019 at 9:18am PDTIn the second half of last season, Newton was obviously unable to push the football downfield. Secondaries pushed closer to the line of scrimmage and Carolina was forced to insert backup Kyle Allen on plays that required a desperation heave into the end zone.According to Stats Perform data, Newton finished 20th in the NFL with only 22 big play passes that went for 25 yards or more.That shouldn’t be the case as the team has made it a point to post one Newton deep ball after another on social media throughout camp.Curtis Samuel doing Curtis Samuel things 🙌— Carolina Panthers (@Panthers) August 13, 2019Quarterbacks coach Scott Turner has described Newton’s new motion as more compact, closed off and efficient. What that means for how Newton approaches the game is still unclear.Speaking to NBC Sports last month, Newton wouldn’t say if he’s lost a chunk of velocity, but he doesn’t think that really matters entering his ninth season. “To see him come back like he’s doing, I expect big things from him.” Bills running back Christian Wade hopes to hinge hype to roster spot While Newton will not make his preseason debut Friday against the Bills as many had expected, according to a report from The Athletic, the 2015 NFL MVP has been sharp through training camp.“It’s like night and day,” Bills defensive back Captain Munnerlyn (and member of the Panthers in 2018) told reporters this week after a joint practice (via The Charlotte Observer). “[Newton’s] arm looks a whole lot better now. Man, to see him come back from that injury, I know it’s been tough on him.

His first tosses and minicamp in June gained a live broadcast by the Panthers on Facebook that’s been watched more the 160,000 times. View this post on Instagram “When you get old, you have to change certain things,” he said. “It kind of keeps you young. I actually look forward to it. I embrace this whole process because it’s made me feel like a rookie again. Learning certain things, learning new mechanics, focusing on the little nuances of playing a quarterback position and trying to master it. So at this point in my career, it’s not about velocity. It’s not about throwing a ball 70 yards. It’s about efficient football that’s gonna win football games.”That’s a mature approach from Newton, regardless of whether or not he was forced into it. Now we wait to see if there’s a payoff.last_img read more


first_imgFROM NEIL DOHERTY IN GLASGOW: With less than 15 minutes left here at Celtic Park today, it was beginning to look as if 2013 was going to bring a losing start for the Hoops.But football can change quickly – and thankfully it did as Celtic overcame Motherwell by a single goal to go nine points clear in the SPL.It could have been so different. Celtic had dominated the game and should have been ahead by the time ‘Well’s Jamie Murphy jinked into the Celtic box and completed a dive worthy of Olympic gold (or even an Oscar!).Fraser Forster was then booked as he complained that Tom Hateley had placed the ball ahead of the penalty spot. Ref Mclean was not having a good day.Forster showed his world class by pulling off a superb save to keep the game scoreless.Just three minutes later Celtic went up the other end and took the lead. Super Gary Hooper broke out of midfield, fed the ball to his left where Samaras went racing up the wing before returning a superb ball back to Hooper who squeezed home a superb winner.Celtic coach Garry Parker was full of praise for his team after the game – and in particular his goalie.“He’s a great goalie – he’s in the England squad and it’s fully deserved,” said Parker.“You always fancy him at penalties, he’s a big lad and he’s a good goalie.“We’ve played very well, we created a number of chances. We just couldn’t break them down – they defended well. “We had 18 shots on goal and we broke them down late on. We deserved the goal and we deserved the three points.”Celtic now go into their winter break – but aren’t taking anything for granted, said Parker.“We just wanted to win the game and go nine points clear,” he added.“We’ve got that game in hand over Inverness and we’ve just got to keep going and winning games. “Everybody’s beating everybody – we lost last week, so it’s difficult.“They’ve played a lot of football, we’ve had a lot of games. We’re in a position where we want to be and it’s a good time to have a break.”THE HOOPS REPORT: HOOPY NEW YEAR FOR CELTS was last modified: January 2nd, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:THE HOOPS REPORT: HOOPY NEW YEAR FOR CELTSlast_img read more
