Does Cam Newton Still Have His Deep Ball?

Questions About QB's Arm Continue After Loss To Rams

Cam Newton isn’t worried about proving he can still throw the deep ball. The Panthers quarterback says he doesn’t care about the perception after Sunday’s loss to the Rams. He just wants to beat the Bucs on Thursday night.

“Man, I just want to win. I just want to win in the worst way,” Newton said. “I don’t care if I throw a ball at all. If I’m handing the ball off to C-Mac or whoever, I just want to win.”

“But, if it’s going to hinder us from winning, I don’t want to throw it. But if it’s going to make us win,” Newton said in his best impression of offensive coordinator Norv Turner, “‘Oh, baby,’ you better throw some doggone deep balls.”
