Cam Newton Can Learn From Russell Wilson’s Post-Game Presser After Super Bowl XLIX Loss (Video)

Russell Wilson Super Bowl press conference

I’ll be honest.  I’m not buying all of this hoopla regarding Cam Newton and his lack of class and sportsmanships because he didn’t want to stick around and answer the same stupid questions after losing Super Bowl 50.

The dude just lost the biggest game of his life, not to mention the fact that there was a Broncos player sitting just a few feet away from him, gloating loudly about how they shut Cam down and dismantled the Panthers offense.  How do you expect Newton to feel?  Happy?  Should the Panthers quarterback have simply sat there with a smile on his face and pretended everything was cool?

He did his job.  He showed up to speak with reporters after the game.  And when he felt he’d had enough of the meaningless back-and-forth with the media, he respectfully stood up and left.  He didn’t insult anyone.  He didn’t blow a gasket or go on an epic tirade.  He just got up and exited the room.  But trashing Cam Newton had become a recurring theme this season, so everyone decided to take advantage of this one final opportunity to attack Cam’s attitude before heading into the offseason.

However, with all of that being said, there probably was a better manner in which Cam could have handled his Super Bowl 50 post-game press conference.  If he’s looking for an example of exactly what that manner may be, look no further than Russell Wilson‘s post-game press conference after he threw the interception that cost his team last year’s Super Bowl:

Seems like the entire world wants Cam Newton to be more like Russell Wilson, but I’m perfectly cool with Cam continuing to be Cam.

Never change, Cam.
