But the Panthers should stay the course despite Newton having six interceptions and a 79.3 passer rating. The former Auburn star has 26 career touchdown passes, 23 interceptions, 17 touchdown runs and 11 fumbles. Athletic and strong-armed, Newton's accuracy and decision-making still need improvement. Give him time, and he'll improve. In this league, you bet on potential greatness. Newton still has that within his grasp.
