Found October 13, 2013 on Fox Sports:
Cam Newton's 4-touchdown performance had him feeling great about himself, and it should. After four games of looking like a shell of his former self, he broke out against the Vikings defense in a 35-10 win in Minnesota. Well, all of that excitement nearly led to an accident on the sideline as he was trotting off the field in celebration and nearly ran over FOX NFL Sunday sideline reporter Laura Okmin. The Panthers' third-year quarterback, fortunately, caught Okmin before she hit the turf. It hasn't been a good season for sideline reporters as this isn't the first incident Okmin has dodged. Bears cornerback Charles Tillman saved Okmin from a moving sideline camera in Week 2: Also, Pam Oliver sustained a concussion after getting hit in the head and was almost run over by The Ohio State marching band in a pre-game report.

Could the Panthers’ future not include Cam Newton?

Much has been made of several comments Dave Gettleman has made regarding Cam Newton and “pocket passers”.

Minnesota Vikings: Week 6 Recap

In my week 6 preview, I said the Vikings had to do three things well in order to win on Sunday; get great play from their offensive line, get good pressure on Cam Newton while containing his running game, and get good play from Matt Cassel at quarterback with an emphasis on zero turnovers. None of these three things happened, and it led to a long day for the team in purple.The Vikings...
