Cam Newton calls for 'suggestion box' after frustrating loss to Cowboys

After the Carolina Panthers suffered another narrow defeat at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys, a frustrated Cam Newton said that "something's going to have to change" in a postgame press conference.

"The past couple of games have been the same script, by the same director," Newton said. "It's kind of getting boring."

"This taste, this vibe — I'm not buying it, man. And I don't know what it is, but something's going to have to change. Something's going to have to change real fast."

The Panthers fell to 1-5 with a 19-14 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday, as Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey kicked the go-ahead 28-yard field goal with 3:25 remaining.

It was the Panthers' fourth loss in a row, three of which came by slim margins. Overall, the Panthers have lost four of their five games by a combined 17 points.

"We just find a way to keep the game close just to see what happens at the end," Newton said. "I'm getting tired of it, and that's not a formula to win. Domination is a formula to win."

The increasingly frustrated Newton said he would implement a "suggestion box" to fix the Panthers' issues.

"I'm going to bring in a suggestion box. And I want your suggestions in that suggestion box, because I sure don't know. I really don't," Newton said.
