Quote of the day
"When we go back and really get to watch the tape, we'll see [Cam Newton] missed a read here, he missed a throw here, but for the most part, he handled himself with the type of poise and composure you would not expect." -- Panthers coach Ron Rivera, after Cam Newton passed for more than 400 yards in a loss to Green Bay
It’s hard to figure how Cam Newton morphed from a rookie who seemed overwhelmed during the preseason to a composed QB with more than 850 passing yards in his first two NFL starts. Admittedly, the Panthers are 0-2, and Newton has 4 interceptions compared to 3 passing TDs. But if you ventured a late pick on his in your fantasy draft, you have to feel thrilled. He’s obviously no Ryan Leaf!
At the other extreme, Jamaal Charles owners – who undoubtedly used a 1st round pick to get him – are certainly less than thrilled. Charles tore his ACL and his 2011 is done.
In GuruGolf, Cyberwahoo2 claimed a 2-stroke victory in best ball competition with a -47, while a pair of teams posted a +60 in worst ball scoring. The GuruGolf season closes after the upcoming Tour Championship. The races for both the bestball and worstball championships look to be pretty securely in hand, but the FedEx Cup Contest is still up for grabs in both scoring formats.
