Carolina Panthers: Cam Newton Should Leave Superman Behind in 2013

Cam Newton

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

I enjoy great celebrations, but it’s time for Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton to leave Superman behind and just play football. Newton had an okay season in 2012, but it was nowhere near his potential and at times on the field, you just got a sense he still had a little growing up to do. His size, strength and speed are enough to make him the greatest quarterback of all-time, but he has to get out of his own head first.

Superman is indestructible, and this season Newton showed that he could be defeated. I am not saying that he has to completely get rid of the celebration, just put it on hold for a while until his team makes the playoffs and starts winning games on a big level.

Another thing I would like to see the Panthers stop doing is giving him the ball on the one yard line to score. Yes, it works almost every time, but sooner or later he is going to stretch out and get popped, and now you have a injured franchise quarterback. The Panthers don’t have a good backup, and them winning games starts and ends with Cam Newton.

This off-season will really tell the tale. If the Panthers can surround Newton with better blocking and one more solid receiver they are going to be a scary team in 2013. The defense can always get better, but if Newton limits his turnovers, there is no reason the Panthers can’t win ten or eleven games and at least be in the playoff conversation.

Von Miller, Josh Norman, Marshawn Lynch Ham It Up On Conan

Von Miller, Josh Norman and Marshawn Lynch made an appearance together on the Conan O'Brien show this week, and it was nothing short of glorious. The fellas played video games, drank what appeared to be adult beverages, and had an overall swell time hamming it up in honor of the Super Bowl.

Watch Goodell Ruin The Dab For Everyone

Although we can't place the entire blame on Roger Goodell in this situation, thanks Robin Roberts, it doesn't change the fact that the Dab is no longer cool. When the most hated person in the NFL does a terrible attempt at one of the most iconic dances, it kills it forever.
