Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers looked nothing like the team that was crushed on national television ten days earlier, and came within five seconds of their second win of the season. The Atlanta Falcons were not sharp but they were good enough to come away with a two-point victory courtesy of a 40-yard field goal by Matt Bryant.
If Cam Newton is indeed seeing a “mind coach,” then he’d better ask for his money back. Maybe it’s better spent on a media coach. Either way, the young sponsorship beacon was less than polished in his press conference after Wednesday’s Panthers’ practice.
