Cam Newton is still a Falcons fan
 
Carolina quarterback Cam Newton probably left himself open to some criticism when he had some kind words to say about a division rival.

“I’ve always been a Falcons fan and I’m still a Falcons fan except for those two times a year (when the Panthers play Atlanta),’’ Newton said.

Before anyone goes comparing Newton to San Francisco’s Colin Kaepernick, who took all kinds of heat after he was seen wearing a Miami Dolphins hat, let’s put this in perspective.

Newton’s comments came while he was making an appearance in Atlanta for his foundation. Newton grew up in the Atlanta area, so it’s only natural he followed the Falcons as a youth. Besides, Newton would have given the Falcons bulletin-board material if he said he despised them.

Newton previously has said he plays with a chip on his shoulder whenever he faces the Falcons. Atlanta may be Newton’s second-favorite team. There’s nothing wrong with that as long as he’s doing everything he can to beat the Falcons when he plays against them.

Got to realize they are still fans of the game and have been since a young age, if anyone of us were lucky enough to make it to the NFL, no matter what team you played for you'd still be a die hard Who Dat

Still, it will be funny to watch the headlines now if Scam Newton has a bad game vs falcons

"More" on Cam Newton being a Falcons fan? Really Yasinskas? You actually took the time to follow up your stupid initial blog with a second one? It's what makes ESPN great, I suppose, :rolleyes:.
