I'm a big fan of what Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers have the potential to do, but it just isn't working right now. Something needs to change, and it needs to change quick or this team is going to end up with another high draft pick in the 2012 NFL draft.
The loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday marked the third straight loss for Carolina. Even though the Panthers lost close games to the Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints in the previous weeks, they didn't even look close in the Atlanta game.
There is no run game for Carolina as DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart have combined for just two touchdowns through six games. Sure, Newton is throwing for a ton of yards, but he is also throwing a ton of interceptions (9) and had three on Sunday without a single touchdown.
I understand that it might be difficult to get the ball out of Newton's hands because of how exciting he is, but if the Panthers can't figure something out, they will continue their plummet down NFL rankings.
