We may be smack dab in the middle of the NFL off-season, but that doesn’t mean we should neglect our football (that is, “American football,” for clarification) fellas every Monday.
After winning a Heisman Trophy playing quarterback for the Auburn Tigers (no big deal), being selected #1 overall in the 2011 NFL draft (pretty sweet) and taking home this season’s Offensive Rookie of the Year Award (also, no big deal), Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has all but been formally proclaimed the face and future of the National Football League for years to come.
NFL, meet your future face. It looks good.
Cam Newton had what many are calling one of the best rookie seasons we have ever seen, reviving the 2010 2-14 Carolina Panthers to an improved 6-10 in the ultra competitive NFC South.
