CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Cam Newton downplayed the criticism he received last week from Panthers teammate Steve Smith, saying he and his Pro Bowl receiver are still ``on good terms.''

Smith told reporters he chided Newton on the sideline last Thursday night for sulking during the closing minutes of Carolina's 36-7 blowout loss to the Giants.

Newton says he didn't read anything into that, saying he views the 12-year veteran receiver as ``a big brother'' who's always giving him advice on football and life.

Newton believes it's ``bogus'' to single out one instance of Smith offering advice to him and make it a big deal.

Newton says ``Steve Smith talks to me every day.''

Smith says in hindsight he probably should have kept what he said to Newton between the two of them.

I definitely think they're cool and their little tiff is the least of our worries.

It's more....

1. Coach saying no mind coach...

2. Organization leaking mind coach

3. Charlotte observer F'ing with that cartoon

4. Chud's read option fetish

Really, the relationship between Cam and Smith was the least of my worries concerning this situation. I constantly stated that the "locker room division" story that some were trying to make was contrived bullshit.

All of this has been put in his "mental chamber" just in time for a much needed win against a division rival.

Don't care who says what to who. Sideline drama is for women. Go win some games.

So we are completely humiliated on Thursday night and people really think Cam is worried about the media headlines.. Guarantee his concerns are making sure that doesn't happen Sunday.

Smith's comments were spot on, just really wasn't anybody not collecting a pay check from the Carolina Panthers business.

They are good for each other. Cam resurrects his career in exchange Smitty helps make sure the boy becomes the man.

Football is a team sport. Cam can't win them by himself.

People would be shocked if they heard what guys say to each other in the heat of battle on the sidelines.
