Cam Newton faced the media, after his Carolina Panthers lost a close game to to the Dallas Cowboys, and gave another glum assessment of his and his team's play on the field.

 The Carolina quarterback's post game speeches have become such downers, they should be called depressing conferences.

He looked like a scolded child when he greeted the media after the 36-7 loss to the New York Giants and didn't look much better after Sunday's 19-14 loss.

After the game, Newton at least managed to keep his eyes open and his head held a little higher when he told reporters that everyone on the team "had to do better ... including myself."

It sounds like the second year time bomb is ticking away and he warned the media to bring a suggestion box because he's out of answers on how to turn things around.

"This taste.  This vibe.  I'm not buying it, man.  I don't know what it is," he said.  "But some thing's gonna have to change.  Something's gonna have to change fast."









The Cowboys (3-3) rallied after the Panthers (1-5) took a 14-13 lead late into the game but two late Dallas field goals sealed the deal for the visitors.

Newton passed for 233 yards but the offense was sporadic and was held to a frustrating eight three-and-outs.  Newton had a critical first down pass to Greg Olsen called back after Dallas called a dubious time out.





A lot was expected from Newton after a sensational rookie season but it looks like both he and the team  are having a hard time delivering.  Call it a sophomore jinx or just NFL defenses catching up to him.  Either way, the close losses are taking a toll.

Panthers guard Jordan Gross was a little more cheery.

"If you want a bright spot, we're a fourth-and-one away from a lot of wins here," he said.

Oh yeah, at least Newton rocks the brown sweater.

  • Ya know, for a guy as big, strong and talented as this guy is....he sure is a major crybaby. Grow up Fig Newton, did you think the NFL was gonna be like college. NFL stands for 'Not For Long' if you keep acting like this.
