Josh Peter of the USA TODAY has former NFL Quarterback Doug William’s thoughts on Cam Newton. Williams was the first black quarterback to play in the SuperBowl in 1988 when he led the Redskins 42-10 over the Denver Broncos.
“Let’s be real.” Williams said. “This kid has had an unbelievable year. He has his own personality. … I don’t see anything arrogant about Cam Newton. And I think a lot of people would agree with that. The kid is having fun. Ain’t nothing wrong with having fun.”The team loves him. The fans love him. And the city loves him. At the end of the day, for Cam Newton, that’s the most important thing to him.“I don’t think he spends a lot of time with what people think about him if it’s not positive. I think what he’s shown in Charlotte and a lot of other places is that he’s a pretty good kid.”
