The Football Fan Spot:
Cam Newton had a record breaking rookie season, breaking Peyton Manning’s rookie passing yards record and shattering the all-time single season quarterback rushing touchdown record. He also brought the Panthers back from irrelevance, helping them to a 6-10 record despite awful defense, and giving them a lot of hope for the future. Possibly most importantly, he silenced all the critics who said he had character problems coming off a college career where he got kicked off the Florida football team and then allegedly got pay in exchange to attend Auburn. Well, all the critics except, perhaps, himself.
According to Newton, he was very immature and a bad teammate at times as a rookie. He said he needs to mature and that his pouting and moping was overdoing it. This is the kind of honesty and self critique that I love in young players and I would think I’m not alone in that belief. Newton may have been a “bad teammate” at times as a rookie, but at least he’s conscientious and humble enoug...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
ALL GROWNS UP
Despite having what was arguably the best season by a rookie QB in NFL history, the second year Panthers signal caller says that he still has a lot of growing up to do.
As much as his prodigious natural talent, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has also impressed with his attitude in his short time in charge.
That has carried its way through offseason workouts in his second full season, and evidenced by his unwillingness to get into a bi-coastal war of words. Newton has clearly emerged as the leader of a young team, but to this day defers to others...

After taking his job as Denver Broncos quarterback, Peyton Manning
now has beaten Tim Tebow to the top spot for the best-selling
jersey in the NFL.
It’s confirmed: Jim Harbaugh could sell a ketchup popsicle to a woman in white gloves. Or at least he’d try to if it was in the best interest of his football team.
The 49ers coach spoke to the media on Wednesday and attempted to spin the reports that said the team pursued Peyton Manning in March.
“There’s a perception out there, and it’s an erroneous perception, that...
On Wednesday, two Denver Bronco players — one offensive and one defensive — will be ranked between 41-and-50 on NFL Network’s Top 100 Players of 2012, the network has confirmed.
The two players will represent the fourth and fifth Broncos to make the list (joining No. 98 Willis McGahee, No. 68 Elvis Dumervil and No. 52 Von Miller). That’s a big improvement from 2011, when...
In case you haven’t been listening to the radio, this is a parody of Gotye’s “Somebody I Used To Know.” It focuses on a Indianapolis Colts fan and a Denver Broncos fan dealing with the departures of Peyton Manning and Tim Tebow from their team.
Can’t beat starting your day with a little football humor!
San Francisco head coach Jim Harbaugh claimed Wednesday afternoon that the 49ers never considered pursuing future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning when he was a free agent this winter. Prior to signing a five-year contract worth $96 million with … Continue reading →
