Cam Newton ready to move on from careerworst passer rating

  • Cam Newton says he has already moved on from one of the worst starts of his career. The Panthers quarterback put up some bad numbers in Carolina22-10 loss Sunday to the Atlanta Falcons, but the 2015 NFL MVP isnt too concerned. The playoffs are about to begin, and Newton sees no reason why the Panthers cant make a run. Right now, we need to turn the page extremely fast, and Im going to do that and focus on the next opponent, Newton said, looking forward to next weekwild-card game at New Orleans. Dissecting his performance against the Falcons wont be much fun. Newton had a 31.5 passer rating, the lowest of a seven-year, 109-game career. He began the afternoon missing on his first nine attempts and threw three interceptions in the second half. His 41.2 completion percentage was the fourth-worst of his career. But as badly as the day started Robby Anderson Jersey, Newton appeared to have taken the gamemomentum late in the second quarter as he engineered a 16-play, 78-yard drive that lasted over eight minutes. He converted third downs with a 16-yard scramble, a 10-yard pass and a spectacular 27-yard pass that wiped out an 11-yard sack on the previous play. After connecting with Devin Funchess for a 4-yard touchdown https://www.panthersteamedge.com/163-Panthers_Derrick_Brown_Jersey, Newton was confident knowing that Carolina would get the ball to begin the third quarter. Instead, the Panthers went three-and-out to begin the second half and misfired the rest of the way. We had too many blunders, Newton said. Thatnot us. Fumbles in the backfield, miscommunication in the pass game, just things that are easily corrected. Thatthe optimistic approach to this whole thing. Newton and tight end Greg Olsen both tried to move on from a forgettable third-down incompletion early in the fourth quarter with the Falcons leading by nine. Newton had overcome his own fumble on the second play of the drive to connect with Funchess for a 44-yard gain Carolina Panthers Authentic Jerseys. Three snaps later, Olsen ran a route to the right side, but didnt cut back toward the sideline. Newtonpass bounced out of bounds. Olsen, a three-time Pro Bowl selection and Newtonteammate for seven years, said Newton didnt see a hand signal he gave before the snap. We didnt play well enough to win, Olsen said.

We cannot rush to conclusions, Newton said. We cant panic. Sometimes itjust good to step back and analyze the situation and even breathe throughout the mayhem of whatgoing on https://www.panthersteamedge.com/146-Panthers_Brandon_Greene_Jersey. I didnt think we did a good job today. There were a lot of guys pressing, including myself at times, and just knowing that everything is A-OK at the end of the day. When we panic, thatwhen our production goes down. We just have to stay smooth sailing and well learn from this. Newton was lacking a strong supporting cast. Hehad a revolving door with his starting receivers, and the offense was absent running back Jonathan Stewart, who was held out with a tight back. The accuracy is something needs to be in place as well, he said. I just cant overlook myself. There were some errant throws that Ive got to be better at and I will be better at.
