Greg McElroy On Cam: I Have Issues With Him, He Quit On His Team (Audio)
Former Alabama QB Greg McElroy, co-host of First Team on SiriusXM had strong words for Carolina Panthers QB & former Auburn star Cam Newton after he refused to dive after a fumble in the 4th quarter.
“I have big issues with the way Cam handled himself, not only on the field but in the post-game as well,” McElroy said, via SiriusXM College Sports. “If you’re going to act like Superman and call yourself Superman, well, you better be able to answer the tough questions. He wasn’t able to do so. I don’t have as much of a problem with the post-game press conference as a lot of people do. I think the media at times feels as though they’re more important than the game itself.
“What I have issues with is the way he did not jump on the fumble after he dropped the ball. He jumped away from the ball when the ball was on the ground. I have never, not one time in my life, seen a player do that, especially a quarterback.”
