    Not a big Newton fan, but he admitted they were outplayed, and sat there for 2 and a half minutes enduring stupid questions. So he wasn't chatty after losing the biggest game of his career. Not sure that qualifies as "storming out" - he got up and left after what I'm guessing is the mandated minimum.

    No horse in the race.

    I enjoyed the game.

    Up until the last few minutes, it could have gone the other way.

    Bingo! That score was no runaway by any means....

    Like you said, until the last few minutes and Caroliny was visibly shaken and had lost confidence...

    The NFL is a game of failure - how you deal with your share of it ultimately defines the type of player you become. If you don't act like a leader when you face adversity, no one is going to buy your act when you try and 'lead' when things are going great.

    ^^Well said^^

    Also, what about Newton not going for that fumble at the end? Physical and mental mistakes happen, but lack of effort is inexcusable.

    are QBs taught not to put themselves in harms way...look at palmer...tried to tackle that steeler who intercepted him and messed up his finger...maybe cost them the super bowl run...was cam trying to avoid injury...this is the top game he will ever be in (may never get back)...you have to give 100% of yourself...even it means you get hurt and out for the game at that point...you have nothing to lose and everything to lose for not trying to get the ball...was he frustrated so much he didnt try to get he ball

    Frustration. Poor position, over the ball so he couldnt dive. Thought the Broncs had recovered. Trained to NOT dive in and get hurt (ala Brees). Could have been lots of reasons but I dont have a problem with it.

    Cam is 6' 5" and about 250 lbs. AlI season he's been advertised as a new breed of QB who, along with having a great arm, can run around and through would be tacklers. He even said himself this week that he's "something we've never seen before". Now he can't be put in harms way?

    Even if that is a rule of thumb, all bets are off in the 4th quarter of the Super Bowl. Pretty sure that's why John Elway dove head first for that first down against Green Bay years ago...instead of sliding as QBs are taught.

    The only thing I've heard that makes even the slightest bit of sense is that maybe he thought it was (or was at least trying to play it off as) an incomplete pass and that made him hesitant. Still lame to me, but I was rooting for Denver any way.

    Cam is being crucified online today. I have always thought he acted immature & full of himself. It is now up to him to man up. If he doesn't make a statement apologizing to the press & the fans, he will be toast.
    I went & looked up Russel Wilson's post SB interview from last year. He took personal responsibility for their loss & gave a classy interview.
