Cam Newton\'s In A Class Of His Own?

Cam Newton just began his first year as a NFL quarterback. Unlike most rookie's Newton is showing pose and experience like a veteran quarterback would. Although, Cam still has a long way to go to becoming a top rated quarterback. He still has shown he can handle the pressure's and execute at a very high level. In college, he showed us how talented he is with the football. Newton is very athletic and it shows on the field, especially when he's forced out of the pocket. He turns on the afterburner's and takes off down the field.

Newton is 6'5'' and 250 pounds, a significant size for a quarterback. When he rushes with the football, it's an amazing sight to watch him blaze by defenders like they are standing still. With his tall stature when he runs down the field it is like he is galloping and he features such a long stride for a fast runner. Usually, conventional NFL quarterbacks rarely feature the skills like Newton has because they don't run often. Ordinarily, most quarterbacks can pass and they can't run and vice versa, but Cam can do both very well.

In fact, this year he has rushed for 606 yards, averaging 5.3 yards per carry. Impressively, he has 13 rushing touchdowns on the season. Combine that with his 17 passing touchdowns and it's very formidable. Although, his completion percentage is lower than normal at 59.6%, it's not bad for a first year rookie.

There are some imperative skills that Cam needs improvement with including his 16 interceptions on the year. His 82.3 quarterback rating could be a bit higher and I am sure with time it will improve. However, he does have 3,722 passing yards on the year, which is very respectable for a rookie.

The Carolina Panthers have a record of 5-9 on the season so far. If the defense was not so horrible, the Panthers would probably be contenders this year. There has been many games this year that the Panthers had the game in the bag with the lead that Newton provided for them. Unfortunately, their defense was unable to hold the lead and they ended up losing the games.

In my opinion, Cam Newton is having one of the best rookie season's I have seen in a while. With just 18 more yards, he will break Peyton Manning's record in his rookie season of 3,739 passing yards. If he can continue playing at this level in his rookie year, then I can not wait to see what he can do in the years to come.
