Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is always one to make a fashion statement in his post-game press conferences. Or, something like that. The man’s been known to wear yoga pants and slippers behind the podium while sporting a jacket above the waist. Basically, he’s a living, breathing graduation photo.
Anyway, Newton’s shoe game was on point again after the Panthers’ 38-35 escape over the New York Giants — a physical, chippy game that almost saw the Giants come from behind to win. For serious, those things look like they belong in The Wizard of Oz or something.
Whatever works, though. The Panthers are now 14-0 with at least a first-round bye in the playoffs. Newton is on his way to being named the NFL’s MVP. When you’re the king, you can wear what you want — whether it’s sparkly slippers or robes made from the finest silks.
