Those who watched the post-game press conferences after Super Bowl 50 got to see young Cam Newton working on his free-style pout. Great athlete, but outside the lines he’s often 26 going on 14. OK, most of the questions were dumb. But they always are, and this is part of the game. After facing Denver’s D on the field, facing reporters in the press room should be a lot easier, if not edifying. Even after a heart-breaking loss.
There are plenty of NFL years left for the multi-talented Cam. Almost certainly he will one day be where Peyton Manning stood after this Super Bowl. Maybe by that time he will have learned how to act like a grownup.
