Broncos players call out selfish Cam Newton: He plays for himself
A few Broncos players were questioning Cam Newton's Super Bowl effort.

The Broncos ended up with the loose ball, which was almost a miracle because it looked like Newton was in the perfect spot to recover it. Instead of going after the ball though, Newton appeared to avoid DeMarcus Ware.
During the aftermath of the Broncos' 24-10 win, plays like that left at least two Broncos defenders questioning Newton's effort.
Broncos defensive back Aqib Talib agreed, saying, "He didn't want it."
No one was celebrating Newton's downfall more than Talib after the game.
"There ain't no Easter Bunny, there ain't no Santa Claus, there ain't no Superman," Talib told the Broncos' official website.
In a separate interview with a Canadian television station, Talib said Newton was probably tearing up in his press conference.
"Cam's probably crying right now," Talib said, via TSN.com.
Trevathan said his team flustered Newton by keeping pressure on him all game.
"Our defense came out there and got after him," Trevathan said. "We never let him get comfortable back there. He made some passes, but he was never comfortable."
Newton was sacked a total of six times in the game. The Panthers quarterback didn't exactly defend himself in his postgame press conference, either. After several questions, he just got up and walked out.
