In the days leading up to their Sunday night showdown with the Carolina Panthers last week, the New Orleans Saints’ defense watched quarterback Cam Newton make big play after big play during an eight-game winning streak.

By the end of the week, the Saints had seen and heard enough about how Newton, the 2010 Heisman Trophy winner, celebrates touchdowns.

Fancying himself to be Superman, Newton pretends to shed his suit like his superhero and waits for the cheers of his home crowd, or conversely, jeers from hostile fans on the road before jogging back to the sideline.

So when Saints outside linebacker Junior Galette came off the edge and sacked Newton to end the Panthers’ first possession and force them into a field-goal attempt after a long drive, he remembered the words of linebackers coach/assistant head coach Joe Vitt.

Galette got up and mimicked Newton by acting like he was ripping his suit off. He then slammed the imaginary suit to the ground and stomped on it several times to ignite the fans in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

"Newton went down five times Sunday night — each on third down to help the Saints get off the field and give the ball back to their potent offense."

Getting the sacks on third down is even more important than if they come on first and second because that kills a drive right away.
