As a sports editor, I feel as if it is my duty to weigh in on the Cam Newton show which took place Sunday. Unfortunately, my Panthers lost the game but something else was lost on that day as well. Many people’s respect for the MVP coming into the game diminished greatly throughout the night.
It wasn’t just the post-game interview but all the factors combined that did it for me. The first sign for me was him not going all out for the fumble. Instead, he steps aside. When has stepping aside gotten football players anywhere? He needs to fight like hell to keep the possession.
