2012 Pros and Cons

(+) The Rookie of the Year winner had a record-breaking season, scoring more rushing TDs than any other QB in NFL history while also breaking the rookie mark for passing yards as well

(+) Cam had over 4,700 combined passing and rushing yards last season…

(+) …yet says he hasn't reached his ceiling yet

(+) Is the bona fide leader of this team – he owns the Carolina huddle

(+) Threw for at least one TD pass and ran for at least one rushing TD in the same game EIGHT different times last season. THAT’S RIDICULOUS!!!

(+) Combined for 3+ TDs in a game (combo of Pass/Rush) SEVEN different times!

(+) Had three games where he tossed for 374+ yards

(–) During his last 12 weeks of the season, Cam didn't have a single 300-yard passing game and averaged just 222 yards/game

(–) He called himself a "bad teammate" for being selfish with the ball, so look for his rushing touchdowns to take a major dive

(–) The league seemed to catch on to the passing side of Cam's repertoire… a trend that may continue

(–) Even though he was just a rookie, he’ll going to have to show some improvement on his 17 INTs and 35 sacks taken from last year to get to the next level

Newton could have new faces to throw to in 2014

Newton took his game to a new level in 2013, establishing career bests with 24 touchdown passes, a 61.7-percent completion rate and a quarterback rating of 88.8. He also became the only player in NFL history to have 50 of more touchdown passes (64) and 25 or more rushing touchdowns (28) in any three-year span. It just happened to be his first three years.

For all the numbers, the most impressive one was Carolina's 12-4 record. Newton and the Panthers won six games his rookie year and seven his second year before becoming a playoff team in 2013. During the breakout season, Newton led four game-winning drives – twice as many as he directed his first two seasons.

As for the receiver spot, it should be an interesting offseason (as so often it is). Three of the team's top four wide receivers in terms of catches – Brandon LaFell, Ted Ginn and Domenik Hixon – are all potential unrestricted free agents, and difficult decisions regarding trio will shape what the Panthers do next. In addition, Smith isn't getting any younger, though I'm not sure based on his level of play that he's getting any older.

Carolina has drafted 16 wide receivers over the 19 drafts in team history but has picked one in the first round just once. Outside of the three drafts in which the Panthers didn't have a first-round pick, their No. 28 overall spot this year is the latest first-round choice they've entered the draft with and is a spot that could lend itself to considering a rare first-round wide receiver.

Pyro's take: Newton had a fantastic season, leading the Panthers to a 12-4 record, although he did not have as many huge fantasy games in 2013. Part of the problem is that he does not have great weapons in the passing game.

Steve Smith is a great receiver and has been one of my favorites...for a long time. He just is not the dynamic player he was early in his career. The other receivers on the team have been inconsistent, which has hurt Cam's ability to post big passing games. The fact that Greg Olsen was the leading receiver on the Panthers last season should tell you all you need to know. If the Panthers get some real help for Cam at the receiver position, there is no doubt he will have a stronger campaign in 2014.

Newton looking to prove Panthers offense is dynamic

"There's not a game that goes by, a practice that goes by, a meeting that goes by that we all don't think about how we have to do something for us to make the playoffs, quarterback Cam Newton said. "The reason why we play this game is to give ourselves a chance to make the playoffs.

"But each and every game, you have to be ready to put your best foot forward. We don't have the luxury of saying, ‘Well, we're going to beat the Jets,' and just look forward to New Orleans (next Sunday). This Jets team is a very good team. We have all our energy on this game."

Rivera believes the Panthers might have even a little extra energy given their last game, a 31-13 loss at New Orleans that snapped an eight-game winning streak.

"A lot of guys took it personal. They were really disappointed," Rivera said. "Guys kept saying, ‘Boy, I wish it was Sunday.' You want to get that taste out of your mouth, get back on the field and play your best."

Pyro's take: You can bet your bottom dollar that Cam Newton is one of the players that took the loss to the Saints personally and will take that out on the Jets.

Newton is a must start this week, as he should lead a Panther domination of the Jets. Cam knows he needs to bounce back and gear up the offense this week, so that his team is better prepared for the rematch with the Saints in week 16. Cam is going to make a lot of plays with his arm and legs in this game.

Newton looks to be a true leader for the Panthers

I asked Newton how it felt to finally go into December as a quarterback playing games that matter, like the one Sunday night at New Orleans that will be for the NFC South lead. He good-naturedly batted the question aside.

"Your question is great,' Newton said, "but your question is trying to make it a 'me' thing. We all wanted this. As a writer for The Charlotte Observer, writing about a 2-14 team is not going to get a lot of views. You know that and I know that. ... Yeah, it's great to be around this type of atmosphere. But to hell with it if we don't continue to keep going and keep challenging ourselves."

Newton has learned to trust his teammates during this 9-3 season. And while he hasn't stopped the "Superman" touchdown celebration or the first-down point, he is far quicker to credit teammates than he used to be. He doesn't necessarily believe that, but it's true.

"I hear it all the time," Newton acknowledged. "Maybe I just have the blinders on like one of those horses downtown that goes around carrying the couples. I'm just trying to stay focused. Even though we're having a great season, it could be better.

Pyro's take: This season has been about the maturity of Cam Newton, and that has translated into wins. Cam has also been helped by a very strong defense that has kept it close when Newton has not been at his best. Although, Newton is turning the corner as quarterback.

Cam has been very good in fantasy this season, although there are not many other Panthers that have been factors. That is in part due to the fact that Newton is spreading the ball all over the offense.

This week should be a good challenge for Newton as he faces the Saints on an "island" game for the lead in the division. The Saints are coming off a tough loss to the Seahawks, and will be looking to rebound at home. Cam will have to weather the Saints storm and be the major reason why the Panthers win or lose this game. Get him in your lineup this week.

Newton celebrates win at the Waffle House

Newton admitted Wednesday that he celebrated the Panthers’ victory over the Patriots on Monday night by going out, but it was merely to Waffle House, one of the few local establishments open late.

Newton said he “popped orange juices” but was careful not to eat anything that could alter his preparation for his next game, according to ESPN.

“I order scrambled eggs, hash browns and cheese grits in one bowl with a light waffle … extremely light waffle,” Newton said. “Ah, man, to die for.” Newton said he is “on a first-name basis” with the local Waffle House employees.

Pyro's take: The more I hear about Cam, the more I like this guy. I am not from the South, but when I am I love to get my Waffle House on. Waffle House needs to get an endorsement deal done. I want to see Newton's face on every Waffle House.

Superman needs to be sure he does not have a letdown game, after two big back-to-back wins over the 49ers and Patriots. Cam will be facing the Dolphins, who are currently 7th best against quarterbacks one the season, surrendering just 18.3 points a game.

Newton's growth is the talk of the town

"It's been a growth period," Rivera said of his suddenly surging signal-caller. "He's learned so much – like I have – and he's grown a lot."

Over Newton's last 16 games (the equivalent of one regular season), he has thrown 26 touchdown passes while tossing just nine interceptions. In the 16 games before that, dating back to the middle of his rookie year, Newton threw 18 touchdown passes against 15 interceptions.

But the more notable number - one that Rivera shares in and one that has observers pronouncing that Newton has truly arrived - is the win-loss record. The Panthers are 10-6 over their last 16 games, a playoff-caliber kind of record.

Pyro's take: We have been seeing the growth of Newton in fantasy as well, but we have not seen the best, yet. Newton has a tough schedule coming up, and his accuracy is going to get put to the test.

Although, this is time where Cam is going to use his speed to set up his accuracy. I expect Superman to be in Candlestick this week, and he will be running, and throwing on the run with his new found accuracy. Cam needs to prove himself this week, which I like in fantasy.

Cam Newton focused on week 2, not history

For the first time in the Cam Newton era, the Carolina Panthers will face consecutive teams with quarterbacks of African-American descent after hosting Russell Wilson’s Seahawks and traveling to E.J. Manuel’s Bills on Sunday.

There were an NFL-high nine black or biracial quarterbacks who started in Week 1. One media outlet has dubbed it, “ The Golden Age of the Black Quarterbacks.”

Newton isn’t throwing a party.

“You don’t have a bar mitzvah just because you’re a starting African-American quarterback in this league,” Newton said Wednesday. “Even though I’m a fan of everybody, I can’t say I just root for Michael Vick, (Robert Griffin III), Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick. I still feel like I learn just as much from Michael Vick as I do from Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers or even RG3.”

Pyro's take: I love the bar mitzvah shout out, but it is good to see that Cam is more focused on having a good game this week. Cam only threw for 125 yards and 1 touchdown in week 1 adding 38 yards on the ground, but that was against a stout Seahawks defense. This week Newton draws the Bills and and he should find a lot more open passing and running lanes, and should have a solid fantasy performance.

How will Panthers new OC Mike Shula affect Cam Newton in 2013?

When 2011-12 Panthers OC Rob Chudzinski signed on to be the Cleveland Browns head coach back in January, Carolina decided to stay in-house, promoting QB coach, Mike Shula, to be their new offensive coordinator. Since then, Shula showed throughout OTAs that his plan is to move away from the zone-read/option calls and get Newton to make more plays from the pocket.

Pyro's take: That's all fine and dandy, but we're not totally buying it. Shula may indeed try to infuse a more "normal" rushing attack using his RBs instead of Cam, but with Jonathan Stewart coming off of offseason surgery to both ankles, DeAngelo Williams just turning 30 (in April) and Mike Tolbert more of a short-yardage option, we expect Newton to continue his ways as one of the most dominant running quarterbacks in NFL history. Besides, Shula's recent history would agree with us. In his last six years as a QB coach in the NFL (Jaguars, 2007-10; Dolphins, 2011-12), his quarterback ranked amongst the Top-4 in rushing attempts during each of those six seasons (David Garrard, Cam Newton). Basically, Cam should continue to be graded as a mid- to top-end fantasy QB1 in 2013.
