Cam Newton's media session today was entertaining, to say the least. Reporters asked Newton, who was held out of the Panthers' Week 1 game with a rib injury, about his health and a possible contract extension. Taking a page from Arian Foster, the Panthers quarterback pretty much ignored them.
Newton's delivery varied slightly, but his basic repeated statement was about focusing on the Lions, and staying protected from Lions defensive linemen Ndamukong Suh—whom he called "Donkey Kong Suh"—and "my fellow Auburn teammate" Nick Fairley. Good talk.
