To his credit, football-wise, Cam is coming off of one of the best games of his career: 26-of-33 for 355 yards, three touchdowns, no interceptions against a very good NFC team on the road. Green, Patrick Peterson, Tyron Smith, Julio Jones, and Marcell Dareus, Cam has helped some great Carolina defenses reach the playoffs, including a Super Bowl appearance in 2015.
The Panthers improved to 4-1, in legitimate contention for the top seed in the conference for the second time in three years. He did win MVP that season, but I think that his performance against the Denver Broncos in the championship game, as well as his underwhelming follow-up campaign in which he had a passer rating of 75.8, proved that the people who saw through the gaudy stats for what they really were – advantageous opportunities against awful defenses – were right all along.
But if you thought that Cam's apology issued on Thursday seemed disingenuous, like it was scripted, rehearsed, over-charming, and only intended to save him from the ongoing "goodbye" letters from his sponsors, well, Cam confirmed that you are right.
Cam managed to double-down after his apology, claiming after Sunday's 27-24 win over the Lions that he was only being sarcastic and that he was actually complimenting Rodrigue.
No reporter who asks Cam a postgame question about football is typically questioning his aptitude for knowing about the game, but that didn't stop Cam from getting snarky last week when Jourdan Rodrigue from the Charlotte Observer asked him about receiver routes.
"It's funny to hear a female talk about 'routes,'" sounds like something you might hear from the mouth of Archie Bunker in an All In The Family episode about men not needing driving directions; instead it came from Newton in that press conference.
And in regards to past excuses from Cam defenders such as a perceived lack of weapons, the Panthers have used first round picks on Kelvin Benjamin and Christian Mc Caffrey, plus second round picks on Devin Funchess and Curtis Samuel.
So while Cam Newton may be very knowledgable on the game of football, a guy who was a five-star recruit out of high school, a national champion, a Heisman winner, a first overall pick, an MVP, and has a recent Super Bowl appearance, I just think the idea of him mocking a reporter for asking questions about passing is …
And while you're at it, why don't you smile more?Nevertheless, there is little research on the efficacy and safety of the full range of CAM modalities used by women to alleviate NVP.Furthermore, there is little information about the types of CAM treatments that are being used by women experiencing NVP, as well as how they obtain information about potential CAM therapies Finally, the degree of supervision of CAM use in this population is not well defined.Our primary objective was to examine the prevalence of CAM usage by women suffering from NVP.Our secondary objective was to ascertain if women had any supervision in the use of these treatments. 61% reported using CAM therapies, of which the three most popular were: ginger, vitamin B6 and acupressure.That being said, if I could pick a single quarterback in 2017 whose opinion on routes and passing seems a tad overrated, it would be Cam Newton. As an overall weapon, Cam does have exceptional talents.
