Panthers QB Cam Newton Talks About How Bad His Shoulder Was in New YouTube Docuseries

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton unveiled a behind-the-scenes YouTube docuseries, during which he admits just how much the shoulder issue affected his play as the Panthers season nosedived to the finish line after a 6-2 start, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

“At this persona that we play, you can’t show no signs of weakness,” Newton said. “But I was weak, and I felt so vulnerable. I felt so scared. I felt so afraid because I know I wasn’t myself. I didn’t know what was wrong with my shoulder. I just knew that it hurt, and I knew there was an issue. I couldn’t throw the ball further than 30 yards, no lie. So I was trying to keep up with it as much as possible until the wheels fell off.

“I felt like defenses [were] exposing me because they knew I couldn’t throw the ball downfield. Not being in the position physically to be able to make the throws that you know you’re capable of making, that was the most disheartening thing of the whole year.”

Newton underwent surgery this offseason to clean up the shoulder, which the quarterback hopes will finally put the lingering problems to bed and he can return to his MVP-caliber playing style.

“So here I am, I’m in this position of a lot of people are saying, ‘They’ve seen the best of Cam Newton,'” he said. “F— every single thing that’s been said that I don’t like — straight up. I’m not here to knock on doors, I’m here to kick the motherf—–s down. Seeing the doubt, hearing the whispers of he don’t got it no more fuels me. That’s what makes this comeback even more extraordinary for me. I feel this is going to make me even more dangerous. When it’s all said and done I can look back in my life and I know that this particular time in my life propelled me to that next point. I’m excited for what the future holds.”

Panthers QB Cam Newton Has Surgery on His Right Shoulder

The season was a rough one for the Panthers and more so for QB Cam Newton, and today the quarterback finally put 2018 behind him as he had surgery on his right shoulder.

It was that shoulder that caused him so many issues this season hopefully can be put to rest as he recovers and gets ready for the 2019 campaign.

The QB this past season threw for 3,395 yards with 24 scores and 13 picks, but he simply wasn’t the same QB down the stretch.
The team stated that Newton has “an arthroscopic procedure on his right shoulder Thursday. The procedure was successfully performed by Panthers team physician Dr. Pat Connor. Newton’s rehabilitation process will begin immediately.”

The team shut Newton down for the final two games of 2018, as the team was not going to make the postseason, and Newton was not the same QB as he was earlier in the season.

Panthers QB Cam Newton Trolls the Browns with His Dog Collar Cleats

Despite playing with a sore shoulder and a four-game losing streak starring them in the face, the Panthers (at least quarterback Cam Newton) are not playing around today, as his cleats tell the story about playing in Cleveland against the Browns.

Newton and the Panthers are set on a very cold day at First Energy Stadium to take on the Browns, looking to try and keep their playoff hopes alive with a win.

Game time temp with the wind chill is 23 degrees.

Panthers Pounded by Steelers in Offensive Avalanche 52-21 to Fall to 6-3

The Panthers went right down the field on their opening drive, scoring an touchdown after a 9-play drive that covered 75-yards to go up quickly 7-0 on the Steelers.

The Cats should have warmed the bus up after that.

Pittsburgh needed just one play to tie the game up, and after that they continued what ended up being an onslaught, scoring 52 points, and slamming Carolina 52-21, dropping the Panthers to 6-3 on the season.

The 52 points put up by the Steelers ties a franchise record for the most points allowed in a game by the Panthers.

The problem for the Panthers reared its ugly head again Thursday in terms of its inability to get the job done on the road. They have fallen behind by at least 14 points four times away from home this season.

This time they would not come back, as the Steelers put any thoughts of a comeback away by scoring on their first three drives of the second half, this after building a 31-14 halftime lead.

They were torched all night by the pinpoint passing of Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, who missed on just three passes in the runaway win, throwing for 328 yards with five touchdowns.

Cam Newton was under a heavy Steelers rush most of the night, as he was knocked around, getting beat up to the tune of five sacks, seven hits and too many pressures to count.

Newton did post an impressive QB rating, but forget that and consider that they simply didn’t have any answers to a Steelers offense that did whatever they wanted.

The Panthers put up 75 yards on the their opening drive, and ended the night with just 242 total yards with 18 first downs, and on third downs they were ineffective, going 4-for-11 (the Steelers were 8-of-11).

The one good thing is that the Panthers will have 10 days off to put this loss behind them, as they will get set to take on the Detroit Lions.

Here’s some lowlights from Thursday’s loss.

Panthers Build Big First Half Lead; Stop Bucs to Move to 6-2 with 42-28 Win

The Panthers built a 35-7 lead Sunday at home against the NFC South rival Buccaneers, only to have to do a little extra work late in order to put away Tampa, winning 42-28.

The win puts the Cats at 6-2 on the season, and now they have to quickly shift their focus to a very short week as they will head to Pittsburgh Thursday to take on the Steelers, who won Sunday against Baltimore 23-16 to move to 5-2-1.

Back to Sunday, the Panthers got a big day from running back Christian McCaffrey, as he put up 157 total yards and scored twice.

Second-year wide receiver Curtis Samuel scored on a 33-yard double reverse and hauled in a 19-yard TD catch midway through the fourth quarter to seal the two touchdown win.

Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 19 of 25 passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns in the win.

In the win the Panthers ripped off 35 first-half points after failing to score on their first possession. The 35 points was a franchise record for first-half scoring.

Four of five were rushing touchdowns, including two from McCaffrey, and the fifth came from tight end Greg Olsen.

“We have guys who are so explosive, so dynamic and so good in the open space,” Olsen said.

“We can give them balls on handoffs, throw it to them all — they’re very unique in that regard. I don’t know what we have had this many guys who are that dynamic with the ball in their hands.”

The Bucs came with pressure on D in the second half, and got to Newton, sacking him twice and hitting him four times in the third quarter, putting the Panthers offense in a tailspin.

Tampa rallied, but rookie cornerback Donte Jackson put the game away, as he picked off a Ryan Fitzpatrick pass with 3:45 to play.
