It seems more people are talking about what Cam Newton did after the Super Bowl than what he did during.
The Panthers quarterback and regular season MVP ~made waves~ after Carolina’s Super Bowl loss when he left his press conference rather quickly. Of course, numerous people have since pointed out Newton is far from the only person to give notably short press conferences in tough moments.
Can someone explain how Cam's press conference is different than, for example, literally every Bill Belichick press conference ever?— Matt Helgeson (@MattHelgeson) February 8, 2016
If you, as a fan/reader, want to rip Cam today, fine. But I'll get back with you after Belichick's next press conference, see if it stuck— Frank Schwab (@YahooSchwab) February 8, 2016
We all think Bill Belichick is a terrible leader too right? Because his postgame press conferences after losses aren't different from Cam's.— Jorge Arangure (@jorgearangure) February 8, 2016
Are Newton and Patriots coach Bill Belicheck really all that different? We put them both to the test in this Extra Mustard quiz, using quotes from Newton’s Super Bowl presser and Bill Belicheck’s answers while discussing Deflategate for the first time. Without further ado—Who said it: Cam Newton or Bill Belicheck?
