Cam Newton is getting killed for not diving on a fumble late in Super Bowl
Cam Newton didn't dive on a fumble late in Super Bowl 50 and he's getting killed for it.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- The end of Super Bowl 50 is not shaping up as a good look for the Carolina Panthers. Cam Newton didn't want to answer questions following a mistake-ridden game. Ron Rivera punted on 4th down with the Panthers trailing by 14 and 2 minutes on the clock.
And Cam was spotted appearing to not have any interest in diving on a loose football late in the game.
Cam really is Superman. And that football was kryptonite. https://t.co/YgT6geKDA7— Aaron Nagler (@AaronNagler) February 8, 2016
People are not impressed with Cam's decision. Some might even call that a "business decision."
Cam made a business decision ... At the super bowl?— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) February 8, 2016
Odd time for Cam Newton to make a business decision.— Adam Kilgore (@AdamKilgoreWP) February 8, 2016
How does Cam Newton not dive in for the football? It's only do or die time.— Larry Holder (@LarryHolder) February 8, 2016
Not everyone is killing Newton for the move ...
People acting like Cam didn’t dive for the ball because he didn’t care enough … yeah, no— Bill Barnwell (@billbarnwell) February 8, 2016
But the majority of folks are wondering why he wouldn't go leaping on a fumble late in the game.
When you see the play it feels like a legit question.
"Cam was scared to throw it. He looked blind," Harris said. "He couldn't figure out where to throw. That's what pressure does, man."
The Broncos brought tons of pressure on Newton, so much so that by the end of the game he looked almost like he was willing not to dive on a loose football.
