Greg Olsen to Cam Newton after the loss to the Bears; Good Game"...Newton's response; "Fu#k You!"
“You’re not supposed to be smiling and giggling after you lose,” Newton said Sunday after completing 27 of 46 passes for 374 yards in a 34-29 loss to the Bears, dropping the Panthers to 1-3.
“I’ve never had the mentality of losing in my whole life. For a person to tell me you can’t win them all, that’s a loser’s mentality. I play the game and I want to win every single game I play. Obviously it hurts when I lose.”
“As the rest of us catch up to what’s happening with Cam — because I think some of us aren’t growing at the same pace — when the rest of us catch up with him, I think we can be a better football team,” Rivera said.
“This falls on me, first and foremost, as the head coach. We had a plan and we felt good about the plan and unfortunately we didn’t execute the way we needed to,” Rivera said.
I agree with both Cam and Rivera. Olsen shouldn't have said "good game" to Cam knowing Cam's will to win and the fact that Cam didn't really have a good game, by Cam's standards. And also Rivera should take responsibility.
Like I said earlier this week, I expected a lot of people to be upset/offended by Cam Newton. I love his attitude.
