    I know he threw a few INTs which is what really matters. Just commenting on his ability to sling the ball. No way I would have thought he would have back to back 400 yards games. Just did not think he was a good passer but he is changing my mind.

    If you asked me what is more likely:
    Cam Newton throws for 400 yards+ in each of his first two starts
    Cam Newton throws for under 800 yards in his entire first season.

    I would've picked the second option.

    He has really surprised me. I never saw anything like this coming at all.

    He turned the ball over a ton today. The Panthers aren't even trying to run, they are just calling pass plays on every down. Throw enough, you are going to pile on yards.

    This. The panthers seem content to let Newton go out there and throw it 40+ times per game. They aren't going to win many games doing that, though, it'll at least allow him to pile up yards.

    Those 3 nasty INT's kind of overshadow the yardage, IMO.

    Replace Cam Newton and insert Mikes Austin

    He picks the first option

    I thought he'd be benched by week 4 if he started, guy didn't look like an NFL QB to me. Time will tell but it looks like I was wrong.

    He is probably the first rookie QB of all time in his first 2 starts to go over 400 yards, so that is not a radical mental opinion.

    The man has a whopping 10.3 yards per attempt!

    His yardage isn't simply due to throwing a lot.

    I don't think there's a "probably" about it lol...I think I read somewhere that only 6 QBs in NFL history have ever had back-to-back 400 yard games...and that Newton is the only one to do so in the first two games of his career.
