Mike Tolbert believes the offense under new OC Mike Shula will remain the same, and the "basic scheme of things probably won't change much."
"It's big for Cam [Newton] not having to start new, start over. It's a good transition for Cam," added Tolbert. NBC Sports analyst and former quarterback under Shula, Shaun King, offered his thoughts on the offense, saying, "I think the offense should be based off power running game, the passing attack should be play-action based and sprinkle in some zone-read stuff." According to Pro Football Focus, Cam Newton posted a 109.4 QB rating on play-action in 2012.
