Dear Jason:

Thanks for making it look like I knew what I was talking about in 2003 when I unfairly dragged Donovan McNabb into a controversy I created to hype my multi-million-dollar radio show. Love the NFL Truths. Wish I knew football and cultural issues as well as you.

Rush

(I just thought this part was hilarious.)

Your NFL Truths for Week 9:

10. It’s not a coincidence that Cam Newton made significant progress last week. A competitor is inspired by criticism.

After throwing a game-changing, pick-6 interception in the fourth quarter on Sunday against the Bears, Newton marched the Panthers 53 yards in 11 plays for a go-ahead field goal. Panthers WR Steve Smith dropped a would-be, go-ahead TD catch. Smith also fell down on Newton’s pick-6.

In the postgame news conference after the Panthers' 23-22 loss, Newton sounded and looked like a leader rather than a crybaby looking to deflect blame.

Was he perfect on Sunday? No. When a teammate bailed him out with a fumble recovery in the end zone, Newton didn’t stick around to celebrate. He jogged to the bench and sat alone. Newton is a work in progress.

But you can’t bake a cake without turning on the heat. Shielding Newton from the heat with bogus claims of racism will only stop Newton’s cake from rising. Football, like life, is a game that humbles its participants. Newton needs to be humbled. It will toughen and season him. Humility will make him a better player. It will make him respect the game and add urgency to his preparation.

Everyone needs critics. They keep you honest and alert. They make you work harder. The people without a passionate band of critics are the people I don’t trust.

Cam's press conference > The Panthers losing record

As long as Cam is humble contrite and docile in his press conferences, he is being a leader despite how much our team sucks. LMAO. We're gonna teach Cam HOW to lose. If anybody knows how to, we do!

This doesn't sound right. It sounds positive.

Not a big fan of Whitlock, but he's on the money on this one. I've noticed the same thing, and it tells me Newton is very coachable. When he is criticized, we always see a reaction from him in short order.

That's what makes me wonder what kind of coaching he's getting from Shula. Or maybe he's getting good coaching on fundamentals, but he falls back on bad habits in the heat of the moment. We may never know until we see the results of the inevitable changes coming this offseason.

Only thing he needs to work on is footwork and his attitude after games. He needs to be more humbled. Besides that dude. Its fine. Accruacy will come with good footwork.

Did Whitlock really need to bring up racism yet again?
