Cam Newton's "Flop" and "Acting" Is What Got Us The Win -- Today in Yahoo Sucks

Carolina quarterback Cam Newton is a heck of a football player. Turns out, he's not a bad actor, either.

Newton led another thrilling game-winning drive in a 20-16 win over Miami, hitting Greg Olsen for a 1-yard touchdown with 43 seconds left. One of the biggest plays of that drive was Newton flopping out of bounds.

 

So we're winning now, right? And the common phraseology over the past 4 years whenever someone would post a bad article about us was "the respect will come once we win," right? And now the common phraseology is "who cares what they say, we're winning!!"

 

All of that is true, but damn. Give credit where credit is due. Seven straight wins doesn't come because of two penalty flags near the end of games. It's 60 minutes of football, not "one play to win the game" football.

Ok we'll give back that flag if they give back the minute and a half on the clock from the incorrect challenge ruling.

He slipped and fell out of bounds on that synthetic surface they use on the sidelines.  Plenty of folks have goten hurt on that surface  as well.  It was hardly intentional.

They're not saying that was the play that gave us the win; if anything, it's a sign of Cam's savviness. But here's the reality: the defender hit him late, and Cam sold the penalty. Nothing wrong with that, the defender has to be smart enough to know he had no reason to even touch him.

 

I think it's a passive-aggressive way to take a shot at Cam. The whole "look at his smile after he sold the penalty" just makes it seem as if they're making him out to be sly and sneaky but in a bad way.

If you all have been paying any attention Schwab has been on the Panthers bandwagon from even before the start of the season. And Cam absolutely sold the penalty (or flopped, call it what you want.) But guess what, the defender made it easy. Any QB with half a brain was going to take full advantage right then, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.

i actually thought the opposite was going to happen. i thought people would dick ride hard when we started winning.

we are genuinely a hated team and i think it all starts with our starting qb. the reader comments on some of these articles with backhanded comments like, "cam is just like jamarcus russell, the defense wins them games" stuff like that makes me realize Cam will always be a polarizing sports figure. nothing is going to change that.

i guess i shouldnt have been so naive.

Nah, most people like us it's just that Yahoo has a shit ton of racists in the comments

Edited in this picture that leads to the article, which is much worse than the article itself.
