      It took almost eight years Youth Cam Newton Jersey , y’all, but Cam Newton has finally become a good quarterback. for the ages against the Dallas Cowboys and has pulled his season average completion percentage up to 65%. As we all know, completing 65% of your passes on average is the absolute benchmark for good quarterbacking. It’s a black and white standard.I assume that is the story of the season. I assume that everybody who spent years claiming that Newton was overrated during his 2015 NFL MVP season, who was clamoring for Derek Anderson to start, and who has, for months, been trying to buy passage on the Taylor Heinicke bandwagon has now been quieted. That their support has been thrown unequivocally behind Cameron Jerrell Newton , efficient passer of the football, as the quarterback of the Carolina Panthers for now and hereafter.Never we mind that Newton has averaged almost 40 yards a game on the ground. Never we mind that those yards often came on critical third and fourth down opportunities. Those yards and those plays aren’t valuable when produced by a quarterback and neither are the 55 touchdowns he has rushed for since entering the league.The Panthers stuck by their first overall pick for longer than many franchises would have. His ascendancy to being a good and relevant quarterback in his eighth season qualifies him as a late bloomer. Other first overall picks didn’t receive as much as time as Newton has to prove that they were good quarterbacks. Alex Smith only received seven seasons in San Francisco, which is mathematically less than Newton’s eight. David Carr, meanwhile, was released after four seasons by the Houston Texans.Ironically, both of those quarterbacks became good in their last seasons with their original teams. They posted 70% and 68.9% completion ratings respectively. Maybe that is the sign that this is Newton’s final year. Maybe the Panthers are just letting Derek Anderson rest for a season so that he can take the league by storm in 2019.It will be a tough call for general manager Marty Hurney, to be sure. On the one hand Womens Torrey Smith Jersey , Newton is now a good quarterback. On the other hand, the Panthers probably have a better chance of making the Super Bowl without him. It’s not like he ever proved capable of carrying their entire offense — kicking and screaming — through the playoffs all by himself.As for 2018, Newton will probably try to maintain his performance as a good quarterback. He can do that if he keeps his season average completion percentage above 65%, I’m told. That will probably mean he has to stop running so gosh darn much. Smiling, too. That’s OK, though. The Panthers have never been hurt by leaving a few first downs on the table, letting drives stall out Womens Shaq Thompson Jersey , and not scoring in the red zone.Panthers 2018 season opener countdown: 11 days to go There are just 11 days until the Panthers kick off the 2018 regular season. Today’s player is wide receiver Torrey Smith.Torrey Smith, Wide receiverBioHeight: 6’0”Weight: 205 lbsAge: 29College: MarylandNFL Experience: 8 yearsSmith came to Carolina in a trade that sent cornerback Darryl Worley to the Eagles. Since his arrival, Smith has made an impression for two different reasons: making plays in practice and being out spoken on issues about which he is passionate.He was acquired by the Panthers for much the same reasons as new teammate Jarius Wright. Since then, he has stepped up in training camp and earned the No. 2 receiver spot. Both Smith and Wright provide a boost of speed and a solid veteran presence in the wide receiver’s room. Smith had a bit of a down year last year, numbers wise, with an Eagles offense that was happy to spread the ball around, but don’t let that fool you. He is only 29 and not too far removed from his days as a top wide out in Baltimore. There is no guarantee that he will hold on to the starting job opposite Devin Funchess for the whole season Womens Dontari Poe Jersey , but he has shown the skill for it in the past and — for now — it is his job to lose.Off the field is a much easier story to tell, if new owner David Tepper doesn’t batten down the hatches on his team’s public communications the way his predecessor did. Smith is trying to move the player’s movements for social justice from protests on the field towards actions in the community through his work with the Player’s Coalition. He has also taken the time to explain the simple difference between protesting during the national anthem and protesting the national anthem. A clear and passionate voice speaking to common issues is exactly what sports should elevate. Torrey Smith is that. I, for one, am hoping that he plays well enough this year on the football field to merit keeping his voice in the Carolinas for years to come.
