Actions speak louder than words and in Carolina Panthers’ quarterback Cam Newton’s case, his body language during the fourth quarter of games speaks volumes. So much so that two of his teammates even talked to him about it. “I have a bad tendency of showing my emotions on my face. I have to change it, and I’m trying to change it…You’ve got to be that same leader from the first quarter to the last quarter.” – ESPN.com To his credit, Newton hadn’t lost many games before he became the Carolina Panthers’ starting quarterback.

  • This article hits the nail on the head. Newton just doesn't yet get it when it comes to real leadershiip. It just doesn't seem to be in his personality to lead. He continues to be arrogant and lacks engagement with his teammates. He needs to watch films of Brady, Brees, Manning, and Joe Montana and get his act together.
  • Glad I am not the only one that notices this.Sitting on the bench with a towelk over your head is not how you lead a team
  • This is ridiculous. Have any of you watched anything more than ESPN highlights? Cam is a complete leader. Yes, he has had his hiccups and bad moments, but who hasn't? To flat out say he "lacks leadership" is erroneous and unfair. Have you seen/heard any of his games when he is Mic'd up? Have you seen all the charity work he is doing around the Carolinas? He is a All Star in the making with a huge target on his back. Yes he isn't perfect, but lacks leadership?!? Come on, back it up with a lil more than "towel over head"!
  • He is a JOKE! Over rated, over paid. He will never win a Super Bowl!
