Carolina Panthers new offensive coordinator Norv Turner has established quite the reputation for his work with quarterbacks throughout his career and his next duty will be to help Cam Newton take the next step.
Turner wants Newton to be more consistent and is aiming at helping him make the steps necessary to do just that.
“But the one thing that I think when you look at it that we’re going to work hard to help him is, he has a large number of games where his quarterback rating is as high as anyone’s is,” Turner said, during an appearacne on Sirius XM NFL Radio with Alex Marvez and Bill Polian.
“It’s in the high 90s, low 100s. But in the middle of that, of a 16-game season, he has four or five games where that rating is not very good. And that, obviously, makes your average not as good as you’d like.
So what we’re going to try to work hard for is eliminate the peaks and the valleys and try to, on a weekly basis, make it more consistent. And I think that’ll help us, offensively, be more consistent and certainly will help him.”
