"Next question," Newton said, before walking out during the next question.
Cam Newton didn’t feel like talking following the Panthers’ 41–38 loss to the Saints on Sunday, deciding to cut his postgame press conference short after just over a minute.
Newton replied to six questions with very brief answers before saying, “next question,” in response to a reporter asking about his frustration level. After one more, he was asked again about his level of frustration, and said, “next question” again before leaving in the middle of the next question.
The veteran quarterback was widely criticized for walking out of his post-Super Bowl press conference early.
In his return from a concussion, Newton completed 27 of 47 passes for 322 yards and two touchdowns, with two interceptions. He ran twice for a yard and a touchdown.
Carolina is now 1–5 on the year.
