Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is fun, exciting, the best at his position this season and will play in the Super Bowl in two weeks. He will very likely take the field against the Denver Broncos as the new NFL MVP thanks to a regular season that saw him compile 4,500 total yards and 45 total touchdowns.
None of that will prevent the next two weeks from being a concentrated garbage fire of bad takes about Newton’s personality, demeanor and need for humility. We are virtually guaranteed to see the internet turned into a nuclear wasteland of Hot Cam Takes because that’s what happens whenever we get something wonderful like Cam Newton in our lives.
Don’t believe me? The trash was already being dumped on our lawns before NFC Championship beatdown was completed Sunday.
