IFWT_Cam Newton dab

Cam Newton has always been criticized even back when he was a college quarterback.  As he prepares to play in the Super Bowl on Feb. 7 against the Denver Broncos, Newton says his response will remain the same; he doesn’t plan to change who he is or what he says.

“I’ve said this since day one,” Newton said. “I’m an African-American quarterback that may scare a lot of people because they haven’t seen nothing that they can compare me to.”

Newton has been a lightning rod for criticism for much of his career. He was called immature and moody during his first couple of NFL seasons because he sometimes sat alone on the sideline with a towel over his head when the team was losing.

He’s been questioned for a lack of leadership. He’s been questioned for his dabbin’ and dancing after scoring touchdowns, for taking photos of teammates at the end of a blowout win. But Newton said he’s the same person now as he was when the Panthers made him the first pick of the 2011 draft.

“The only thing that’s changed is we’re winning,” Newton said.

“Find any way — any way — to win a football game,” Newton said. “Cause when you win [he chuckles], that’s going to give them something else to talk about.”
