Panthers QB Cam Newton

(on what he did differently today to improve his completion percentage)
“Clear weather. Last couple games playing in tsunamis and things like that, but we had a beautiful day in Nashville today. But you just have to make the most of it.”

(on connecting early with TE Greg Olsen)
“He was wide open a couple of plays, made a tease on the sideline, and he said ‘I don’t think they put me in the game plan.’ I said, ‘OK buddy, I’m going to keep getting you the ball, or whoever the ball if the play allows me.’ He also had an unbelievable one-handed catch, and he does that in practice.”

(on the reaction after he gave the football to a young fan)
“I heard somebody say we aren’t going to allow you to do that, but if you don’t want me to do it, then don’t let me in. I just like doing it. It’s not to be boastful. From the crowd’s response, they like seeing it. I’m not doing it because I got sacked. I’m not doing it because something bad has happened to the Panthers. I’m just doing it because good things have happened and I hope to keep doing it. No disrespect to anybody. It’s just a Panthers thing.”

(on if his celebrations are an example of how he loves the game)

“Absolutely. We put a premium on scoring touchdowns and performing in away games. We get so much response from fans in away games like this. Seeing the response with the Roaring Riot, seeing black, Carolina blue and Carolina white jerseys in the stadium and keep pounding throughout the game chants, it makes me happy as a player. Nobody wants to be on a team that don’t nobody like and we didn’t want to let those guys down. Anytime we score, we label it our own Sunday giveaway. We make it a priority for a person who is celebrating to give them an opportunity to share something that we have. Giving a football to a fan just makes Sunday football any better.”

(on whether his celebration was excessive)

“It’s just fun. It’s really an Atlanta-based dance and a tease. I’m a kid a heart. My youngest brother played a big win this past week, first playoff game, and he always tease me, ‘Hey brother, you gotta’ do something cool.’ He told me, ‘Dab on those folks,’ and in that tone too. He’s only 16, but he’s got an Adam’s apple. I try to make my game kid-like so people will see that I’m enjoying what I do. The birth of my lungs, while I have the ability to do what I do, I’m going to try to make the most of each and every opportunity. Like I said, I can’t repeat it enough, I’m not doing it to be disrespectful to nobody, more so just doing it just to shine light and get people a smile and having fun doing what I do.”
