Newton grew big-time as a quarterback in 2013. He was more confident, made better decisions, and showed he could lead his team down the field with his arm instead of just running for his life (which he's still really good at). Offseason ankle surgery, a questionable offensive line and a receiving corps of rookies and also-rans could take the wind out of his sails this season, but I'm still bullish on what Newton can do.
