Where Cam does struggle, however, is with pressure up the middle. This has been his Achilles heel during his first two years. If a defense has a strong defensive tackle presence who can collapse the pocket, Cam looks lost. He's a rare player who would rather a rusher come off his blindside, than be in his face -- and this is largely due to his mechanics. Newton doesn't adjust enough, so when an interior lineman is bull-rushed into his pocket, that's when the back-foot throws, and bad decisions come into play.
