If only Cam Newton had followed Tim Tebow into promise land


All that time sitting on the bench behind Tim Tebow, you would have thought Cam Newton would learn something about class.

Newton was Tebow’s Florida Gators backup for two years before he left UF after getting arrested for stealing a laptop computer and getting accused of academic malfeasance.

As we know now, Newton ended up at Auburn, won the Heisman Trophy, became the No. 1 player selected in the NFL draft, won the NFL‘s Most Valuable Player and took the Carolina Panthers to the Super Bowl. Tebow never made it in the NFL, despite trying for four different teams.

Still, if Newton had only studied Tebow closer in college, he wouldn’t be in the post-Super Bowl PR predicament he is in right now.

If he had torn a page out of Tebow’s college playbook, Newton would be a hero right now instead of a heel; he’d be celebrated instead of castigated.

Newton is now being portrayed nationally as the sorest of losers after his Panthers were dismantled by the Denver Broncos defense in Super Bowl 50.

Understandably, Newton was angry and emotional after such a devastating defeat and didn’t really want to answer questions from the media. He chose to pout, sulk, give one- and two-word answers and then got up and walked away after a couple of minutes.

Likewise, Tebow didn’t want to answer questions after a monumental loss in college and walked away after a minute or two as well. Except he became a legend for it.

    No fan of Cam Newton but I have always thought it was ridiculous to interview players after they have lost a game.

    As far as I’m concerned the press should be kept out of the men’s locker room period. I believe there was a incident this year where a press reporter was interviewing a player and in the background you could see naked players going in and coming out of the showers.

    A room should be set aside so if football players want to talk to the press after a game they can go to that room.
