Cam Newton is very good at playing football, but very bad at picking hats.
The reigning MVP has made nearly as many headlines for his postgame fashion choices as he has for his superb play. On Sunday, it happened again.
The Panthers rolled over the 49ers, 46–27, for their first win of the season, behind Newton’s 353 yards and four touchdowns through the air. All anyone wanted to discuss afterward, though, was his terrible throwback hat (coming in at No. 3 below).
That inspired me to rank Cam Newton’s six very worst hats. There are some bad ones here.
6. The glasses don’t help
5. Totally unnecessary feather
4. The hat that made Pharrell realize he wore a bad hat
3. Barbershop quartet
2. Totally something a dude with a bleached goatee would wear
1. That same terrible Pharrell hat, in purple
UPDATE (Sept. 25): This one is might be the worst, man.
