The Carolina Panthers saw their undefeated season come to an end Sunday, but former Miami Dolphins great Mercury Morris was not celebrating.

Morris, a member of the undefeated 1972 Dolphins, tweeted his support of Cam Newton and the Panthers after their first loss of the season. Morris has a history of commenting on undefeated teams, even appearing in an NFL commercial after the Patriots’ unbeaten season ended in 2007.

Sunday, Morris said he does not “toast” to teams’ losses, and was effusive in his praise of Newton and the Panthers.

Morris was not the only former Dolphin tweeting about the Panthers. Former head coach Don Shula, whose son Mike is Carolina’s offensive coordinator, also tweeted a photo in support during the game.
