It was a big Sunday for the Panthers, who beat the Falcons 20-17 and stayed a half-game back of the Saints for the NFC South lead. It was also the first game without WR Kelvin Benjamin, who was surprisingly shipped to the Bills last week. Cam Newton rolled with it, and compared it to something like rearranging deck…
NFL rules stipulate that star players must hold court with the press each week before games. Cam Newton skipped out on his press duties this afternoon, and the NFL has apparently decided to investigate, according to a spokesman for the league. Neither the Panthers nor coach Ron Rivera said why Newton didn’t speak to…
Because of his sexist remark in response to Charlotte Observer reporter Jourdan Rodrigue’s question, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has lost his sponsorship with some yogurt brand.
At today’s press conference, Charlotte Observer beat reporter Jourdan Rodrigue asked a routine question to Cam Newton. The Panthers quarterback gave an answer, but only after saying, “It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes.” Oh?
For the second week in a row, Tom Brady was down at home to a team that New England was favored to beat. And for the second week in a row, a comeback seemed inevitable, especially when Brady converted a late fourth-and-goal to tie the game.
Welcome to Bad Quarterback Performance Of The Week, a recurring feature in which we celebrate the worst quarterback play the NFL has to offer.
The Buffalo Bills were getting after Cam Newton all game, and unfortunately, one hit finally did some real damage, with two defenders smothering Newton and forcing him to leave the field with an ankle injury.
The NFL is back this weekend, bringing with it the highest concentration of takes from media members and star players since February. Inevitably, a bunch of them are about whether or not Colin Kaepernick deserves to be on an NFL roster.
Hey, has anyone else had a problem keeping their brain matter from oozing out of their ears and nose over the past few days as your body suffers a physical response to the demise of American democracy as we know it? Anyone?
Michael Lombardi is a former football executive with the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Oakland Raiders, and Cleveland Browns; now he writes a football column for his good buddy Bill Simmons’s website The Ringer. If you would like to know why he failed in the former career, look no further than the article…
Carolina Panthers Quarterback Cam Newton fractured two bones in his back in 2014, when he was involved in a crash in one of Charlotte’s most treacherous intersections. Two years after he and hundreds of other residents called for it, it’s finally getting a traffic light.
The latest edition of What Will it Take for Cam Newton to Draw a Flag? aired on Monday night, when a scrambling Newton slid—maybe late—and got hit helmet-to-helmet—maybe glancing—by Washington LB Trent Murphy. There was a flag thrown on a play: a taunting call on Newton for flipping the football at Murphy. Yesterday,…
Defenses have been abusing Cam Newton all season, and NFL officiating teams have continued to keep the flags in their pockets. So when the flag came out after Trent Murphy’s blow to the Carolina QB’s skull after a third-down rush tonight against Washington, it was a short-lived sigh of relief for Panthers fans—because…
In what will, assuming God is merciful, be the dumbest NFL story of the week, it turns out that the reason why Cam Newton didn’t start for the Carolina Panthers last night against the Seattle Seahawks was that he wouldn’t dress like a clown.
The Panthers’ offense lasted exactly one play in its first drive against the Seahawks tonight after Derek Anderson threw an interception on his first pass attempt of the game. For some reason, Cam Newton was benched, and it’s unclear why the much better QB wasn’t on the field.
After he took a hit to his knee that wasn’t flagged on Sunday, Cam Newton went off on the NFL. “At times I don’t even feel safe,” Newton, the reigning league MVP, said at the start of an extended rant about calls he frequently doesn’t get. “And enough is enough.”
The NFL and NFLPA have released a joint statement explaining why Cam Newton wasn’t removed from the game to be evaluated for symptoms of brain damage after taking multiple blows to the head in Week 1. What the statement says, essentially, is that the things that millions of people saw happen to Newton on the field…
Corner a Panthers fan today and press them about their team, and they’ll likely react not dissimilarly to Cam Newton in his postgame press conference. Deep sighs, terse answers, and if you ask what it’s like to sit there and watch Carolina’s defense get burned again and again, they’ll probably make a break for it.
