Is Cam Newton the new face of the NFL?


Super Bowl week we saw Cam Newton flash his million dollar smile. He was voted the NFL MVP Saturday night, and his Carolina Panthers had a brilliant season. He was sitting on top of the world but after being defeated in the Super Bowl his world crumbled. He did his post game press conference with a chip on his shoulder. Defeat is never easy or welcome, but there are winners and losers, and people have got to learn how to accept defeat. Some NFL commentators tried to excuse his behavior. They said he left before he said the wrong thing, but Newton is a grown man and he is capable of not spewing out anything that might torpedo his career. If Newton wants to be the face of the NFL he is going to have to develop a thicker skin. Peyton Manning has won the Super Bowl, and he has also experienced the agony of defeat, but he stood at the podium and answered the hard questions. If Newton is going to be the face he is going to have to learn how to do that too.
