Did the Carolina Panthers mishandle Cam Newton's concussion examination?

Did the Carolina Panthers mishandle Cam Newton's concussion examination?

Brees will turn 39 on January 15. I mean there was one time he scooted off for 13 yards and it was very Cam-esque, but at the same time he wanted to be a pocket passer. "You're still trying to find yourself (early)".

Carolina Panthers suffered a 31-26 wildcard play-off loss to New Orleans Saints on Sunday and everyone is talking about what happened to Cam Newton.

Sunday, the Carolina Panthers made a mockery of the concussion protocol - yes, that newly toughened concussion protocol that was rolled out less than a month ago following the last incident to expose it as a farce, I might add. "I do believe I am the leader of this team and the team goes as I go".

But once the Saints were safe to celebrate, man, did they ever.

"That was huge", Brees said.

"We have been telling youi that he is the best quarterback in football in the league. Because obviously there's plenty of struggle and plenty of adversity".

"He said, 'do you want to go for it or punt?' I said, 'do you have a play you like?' and he said 'Yeah.' So, I said, 'let's go for it.' End of discussion". Newton then crossed his fingers and toes on the sideline hoping the offense would get one more chance.

Carolina quarterback Cam Newton had to leave the game with about 8:30 left in the fourthq quarter after taking a hard sack from defensive tackle David Onyemata.

"I don't think so". "I'm not going to take the coward way and point somebody else out". The only remaining players from the teams are Vikings defensive end Brian Robison, and Saints quarterback Drew Brees and punter Thomas Morstead. We can't keep pretending this isn't an issue. And the 80-yarder was a thing of beauty late in the first quarter, when the game was still tied 0-0. He later completed pinpoint passes to Hill and Michael Thomas on another scoring drive. He also caught 81 passes for 826 yards, including four for 20 against Minnesota. He missed one offensive play and was cleared to return. Drew Bree's threw for 376 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception on 23 of 33 passing, while Alvin Kamara led the team in rushing with 23 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries.

Then, on Monday afternoon, Jordan posted a photo to his Instagram story of a wine bottle on top of a shipping label with Newton's Panthers address, with the caption, "Who would I be if I don't follow through on my word?" along with several emojis and the Saints' "Who dat" mantra. The Panthers stuck with their plan to establish the running game, the reason they had a almost nine-minute edge in possession time in the first half.

"Without a doubt, they (defense) was like a wall", he said. The Saints under Sean Payton are going to live or die going 100 miles an hour and in big spots aren't likely to play it conventional. And that's what you hate to have as a defense. They weren't even able to come back and beat Tampa Bay during the last game of the season after blowing a lead.

Jordan already had a bottle of wine ready to go in his locker, fittingly with the brand name "Jordan", and he discussed giving it to the opposing quarterback after the 31-26 victory.
