PLAYERS: Cam Newton
TEAMS: Carolina Panthers
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is having a tough go of it in his second NFL season. Not only are his passing statistics sub-par (2 TD passes, 6 INTs) through three games this season, his off-the-field attitude has been subject of much debate, most of it derisive in nature, especially his behavior on the sidelines [...]

The Charlotte Observer apparently sees Cam Newton as “Hello Kitty” instead of Superman

It’s been a rough week for Panthers quarterback Cam Newton. The Panthers are 1-2 and coming off a 36-7 beatdown at the hands of the New York Giants. In the aftermath of the Giants game, Newton has been criticized for celebrating the Panthers’ lone touchdown when they were already down 23-0. And to top it off, he was seen sulking on the bench, which teammate Steve Smith didn...

Cam Newton gets mocked by Charlotte Observer editorial cartoon (Picture)

The first three weeks of the NFL season hasn't exactly been kind to Carolina Panthers second-year quarterback Cam Newton. After an embarrassing performance against the New York Giants last Thursday night, it appears that one local newspaper decided to take a shot at Cam in an editorial cartoon.

Cam Newton denies he’s seeing a Psychiatrist

Cam Newton is under fire again because of the way he handles losing and how his disposition affects those around him. I wrote in previous articles that no one wants a good loser around them, but a poor loser is even worse. Newton was recently scolded by teammate Steve Smith for the way he handled last Thursday ugly loss to the Giants. There are reports coming out that Newton...

Cam Newton: Will he lead or recede?

The Panthers’ 36-7 loss to the Giants was one of the most embarrassing in franchise history. Still, it’s only one loss – regardless of how much they were outplayed. I have faith that the inferior game planning, poor tackling or shoddy blocking can be fixed. But the real question is, can they repair Cam Newton’s attitude? My fellow Panthers 101 writer DJ Slotkis published...

What’s up with Cam Newton?

After taking the weekend to digest the Giants complete deconstruction of the Panthers last Thursday, there are many things to be concerned about. The defense looked like Swiss cheese against Eli Manning and a motley crew of back up receivers. They also made Andre Brown, a guy who has been on six teams in three years, look like Terrell Davis as he rumbled through tackles all game...

Carolina Panthers: Cam Newton Must Rebound Through Humility

Steve Smith regrets that his conversation with Cam Newton went public

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith told the media on Wednesday that he should have  kept his conversation with quarterback Cam Newton private. “I shouldn’t have said anything,” Smith said, clarifying later that he meant he shouldn’t have said anything to the media, not to Newton, per Scott Fowler of the Charlotte Observer. “So that really falls on me. Hey, sometimes...

Panthers must respond well to loss

The last thing true competitors want after suffering a taste-altering defeat is to have to sit and stew about it for an extended period of time. Most want to get right back out there and eliminate the residue of the pain. The Carolina Panthers had no option following their 36-7 home loss to the New York Giants last Thursday that was actually worse than the score indicates. Thats...

Newton downplays Smith's criticism

The 2012 NFL Season: Year Of The Unexpected

Superman Found his KryptoniteAfter a record-shattering rookie season in 2011, Cam Newton is experiencing what is known as the "sophomore slump" in the NFL.
