You don’t want to be on a list with Joey Harrington

While Cam Newton lived up to his Superman nickname in his first two games back with the Panthers, he looked very Clark Kent-like in Sunday’s game against the Dolphins.

After throwing for three touchdowns and running for two more in games against the Cardinals and Washington, Newton got his second start of the year in Miami on Sunday and was horrendous.

The day started well enough for him. He threw a 64-yard pass to D.J. Moore and ran for a touchdown three plays later, but it was all downhill from there.

GamePlan: How Cam Newton's Return Was Emblematic of the Panthers' Culture

  GamePlan: How Cam Newton's Return Was Emblematic of the Panthers' Culture Matt Rhule discusses lessons he's learned about adaptability that have been felt up and down Carolina's roster. Plus, previewing Week 11's best games and top story lines. Cam Newton’s “I’m back” moment on Sunday looked pretty simple on its face. The Panthers first took possession at the Cardinals’ 15 just 1:26 into the game, after a Haason Reddick strip-sack. On their fifth offensive snap, in went the new/old Carolina quarterback. And in with Newton went Panthers coordinator Joe Brady’s play call—quarterback power, a run call that Newton’s executed hundreds of times.

Cam ended up completing just three of 15 pass attempts and threw two picks in the first half, one of which set the Dolphins up with great field position and led to a Tua Tagovailoa touchdown pass.

Newton wasn’t much better in the second half, going 5-for-21 for 92 yards before Matt Rhule yanked him in the fourth quarter in favor of P.J. Walker.

Not only was Cam’s 23.8% completion rate the worst of his career, it was one of the worst quarterbacking performances in recent memory. It was the worst completion percentage for a quarterback with at least 20 pass attempts since Joey Harrington went 5-for-22 for the Lions in 2004.

Anytime you end up on a list with Joey Harrington it isn’t good.

In the history of the NFL, there have been 56 instances of a quarterback throwing at least 20 passes and completing less than 24% of them. The list includes other chumps like Tim Hasselbeck and David Carr, but there are plenty of Hall of Famers on the list, too, like Joe Namath, Terry Bradshaw, Roger Staubach, Jim Kelly and Warren Moon, had two such games.

Why did the Panthers release Cam Newton? Looking back on Carolina's decision to cut ties with franchise QB

  Why did the Panthers release Cam Newton? Looking back on Carolina's decision to cut ties with franchise QB Taking a look back at the decisions that led to the Panthers releasing their franchise quarterback.He was the franchise's first-ever first overall pick, and he immediately turned the Panthers' organization around. Coming in on the heels of a 2-14 campaign, where Carolina was outscored by 212 points by opponents, the new Newton-led offense looked different.

But the game has changed a lot since those guys were playing. While games like Newton’s weren’t uncommon in the league’s early days, the recent advances in the passing game make Cam’s day all the more embarrassing. Of those 56 games, 49 occurred before 1990 (an average of 1.2 per year). There have only been seven such games in the past 31 years.

Newton was terrible, but he had a few things working against him. For one, he’s still getting to know the Panthers’ playbook, which is different than when he left Carolina, and the Dolphins front seven put plenty of pressure on him.

“At the end of the day, we weren’t protecting the quarterback at all,” Rhule said, explaining why he pulled Newton. “It wouldn’t be fair to keep Cam in there and keep getting him hit.”

And Cam wasn’t upset with getting the hook.

“I was fine with that,” he said. “At the end of the day, it’s still about being a professional. At that particular point, I had more than enough opportunities to keep the game in the balance. There’s no need to put up a fight with that.”
