Despite leading his team to an unbelievable 12-0 start and chances at an undefeated season still alive, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has been met with a great deal of criticism this season. It’s his stats. It’s his style. It’s his touchdown celebrations. It’s his personality. There’s always something that Newton is being judged for and he’s striking back.
In a less than humble reaction, Newton joined “Inside the NFL” as a guest and text messaged the following thoughts for Brandon Marshall to read about those doubting his MVP legitimacy.
“For you guys that think I celebrate too much … kiss my.
For you guys that think the towel on my head is ridiculous … kiss my.
The way I dress … kiss my.
For all the guys out there that think I’m not the MVP … kiss my.”
Will this hurt Newton’s chances at getting votes from the media in the MVP race?
