With a player who’s been relatively arrogant and rightfully cocky all year just lose the biggest game of his life, the media and public seemed to agree that Newton could have gone about the press conference, taking what the media had to throw at him, which were not harsh questions at all, and for lack of a better term, sucking it up for a few more minutes.
New video was brought to light after the talk begun though of Newton’s presser from another angle, which picks of audio of what appears to be that of Denver Broncos CB Chris Harris talking loudly in the same room as Newton was being interviewed.
Harris can be heard making note that they weren’t going to respect Cam’s passing game, which for Newton has become a priority and something he’s taken pride in during his time in the NFL this season especially.
Many now feel as if this was the reason along with of course mounted frustration from the game that Newton simply got up and walked out, mustering “I’m done” under his breath, because lets be honest, the question the reporter had asked before he did leave didn’t seem out of line at all.
Have a look, and a listen:
