The Carolina Panthers have been making some noise in the NFC South this year, and a big part of that has been Cam Newton continuing to do awesome things like this on third and long. Cam’s like a perfect storm of Ben Roethlisberger and Michael Vick except without all the, you know, stuff.
People made a big deal out of Newton’s “sophomore slump” last year, but Cam’s been on fire since last November- throwing for 26 TDs, only 9 INTs, and adding another 10 rushing TDs. Prettay prettay good. If Steve Smith can make it through the rest of the season without killing a defensive back, and Mike Tolbert doesn’t lose any weight or speed, the Panthers could find themselves in a playoff race.
