Steph Curry Wants to Know Why Cam Newton Was Benched (Tweet)


Last night, the Panthers got absolutely smoked by the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday Night Football, and while no single play sealed their fate, it’s a safe bet that the team’s incredibly brief first drive didn’t set a good tone.

Star QB Cam Newton was reportedly benched for the first series because of a dress code infraction (he didn’t wear a tie.), so backup Derek Anderson was put in the game.

I don’t think any explanation the team gives will be satisfactory to fans.
