Cam Newton Makes Faces In Postgame Press Conference After Panthers' Loss

Cam Newton's rookie year wasn't a winning one, but the Panthers quarterback did enough to be able to smile in most of his postgame press conferences. After Carolina's 36-7 loss to the Giants on Thursday night, Newton wasn't in a smiling mood. At all.

Glumness is fine on its own, but the morose "I'm looking for words that aren't 'This sucked'" bit here is even more out of character.

Cam's frustration is justified, though: the loss was the most lopsided of his NFL career, a 29-point beating that eclipses the Panthers' 30-3 defeat at the hands of the Titans in 2011, and came in the first primetime game of his promising career.

Newton threw three interceptions in the game, the most he's thrown since a loss to the Lions in 2011, in the last loss of a three-game skid. If the Panthers are going to avoid losing consecutive games for the first time since then, they'll need a stronger performance from him in Atlanta in Week 4. If not, expect more :( to follow.
