Amen. Just...amen. I was praying we would finally get a well thought out explanation as to why a starting quarterback wasn't super talkative and overly engaging after losing the biggest game of his life. It's been eating at me all offseason and I am not sure I could have truly enjoyed football if I didn't have a totallllllly non-scripted monologue revealing that it's participants actually have imperfections. Seriously, Cam Newton really let it come down to the wire by waiting until the end of August to discuss a six month old press conference. I could fill a pool big enough to drowned out all of his haters with the amount of sweat that was building up under my collar as time ticked away towards the season opener without final word on what was responsible for Cam Newton's frustrations following his loss in the Super Bowl. Thank God the fine folks at 'The Player's Tribune' covered it in such a timely manner or we never would have gotten an opportunity to debate - ad nauseam - how a public figure is supposed to handle disappointment.
P.S. Please God, deliver us another athlete whose every word and action we can dissect on a weekly basis. Someone else - no - ANYONE else who does and says enough things that are worthy of over-analyzation for 5 months out of the year. The Cam Newton hysteria has run it's course and we need a new person to churn out headlines by the dozen just by being himself.
