Can we trust Newton? Remember when Cam Newton burst onto the scene in 2011 and topped 400 passing yards in each of his first two starts as a rookie? “Wow, let the good times roll!” thought his owners. Then he went on to post either mediocre or disappointing weeks until … well, pretty much now. He threw for 308 yards and no TDs against the Cardinals a couple weeks ago, then threw for 242 yards and three TDs yesterday. Hmm. We’ve seen these outbursts from Cam in the past, but is it finally time to start him on a weekly basis? A lot depends on what you’re expecting from him on a weekly basis, but if you’re going by history, the […]

Let’s open it up: Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said he was too conservative with his playcalling in a 12-7 loss to the Seahawks. Carolina led for a good portion of the game, but they were done in by a late fourth-quarter Seahawks touchdown. Newton had 125 yards and one touchdown, and while he was going against a tough defense, his owners undoubtedly expected more from him. It will certainly be good news if Carolina wants to open up the passing game, although a number of questions exist about which of their WRs would be capable of stepping up. The Panthers travel to Buffalo next week, which may present a decent opportunity for them to rediscover their passing attack. DeAngelo […]

1. With Redskins QB Robert Griffin III’s win at Saints in Week 1 and QB Kirk Cousins’ Week 15 win at Browns, the Redskins became the first team in a non-strike season to have two different rookie quarterbacks win their first career starts in the same season, since rookies John Elway and Gary Kubiak won their starting debuts with the 1983 Broncos. ————————————————————————————————————————————– 2. Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw a game-winning touchdown pass in the final two minutes of regulation or overtime three times this season, the most ever by a rookie since at least the 1970 merger. ————————————————————————————————————————————– 3. Colts QB Andrew Luck led seven game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime, which ties the highest single season […]

Much like Clark Griswald in the holiday classic, Christmas Vacation, many NFL players and coaches are in need of a few relaxing days all to themselves (and that Christmas bonus!). Whether from a disappointing season, injury, poor performance or single-handedly carrying their team through the first 15 weeks, these players and coaches could use a little respite. And probably a large glass of egg nog.
