Carolina Panthers: MVPs for first half of the season
Kyle Allen has done a great job filling in for the injured Newton. Leading the Carolina Panthers to four straight wins, he has more than got the job done.
With 901 yards and seven touchdowns on the season, Allen has averaged 7.4 yards per pass attempt. Leading the Panthers to one game-winning drive on the season, he has shown some maturity as a second-year player. With a 65.6 completion percentage, he has been on the money for most of the season. His best game was undoubtedly the one against Arizona. He passed for 261 yards, and four touchdowns on the afternoon.
Things haven’t always looked pretty at times, but Allen has got the job done. He is a great game manager who seems to have tremendous situational awareness. He is definitely a first-half MVP. Although the player in the next slide will get the majority of the credit, he has been the one out there directing the offense. Something definitely has to be said for that. I’m not sure how many times he will start in the second half of the season. It all depends on the health of Newton. Nevertheless, a tip of the helmet certainly has to be given.
