Panthers coach Ron Rivera addressed Cam Newton laughing at and making light of a female reporter’s question, saying Thursday that the quarterback “made a mistake.”
Cam Newton’s comments to a female reporter have cost him a sponsorship, as Dannon, maker of the Oikos yogurt brand, said in a statement that it will “no longer work with him.”
The incident occurred Wednesday, according to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police report.
Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Thursday, “I know there was something there, but that’s about it. I have no knowledge of that.”
Of course, the reason wasn’t as obvious as “down goes Carr, taking his team with him.” The Raiders weren’t lighting up the Broncos as it was; they managed seven points before Carr was helped off (and eventually into the locker room) with less than five minutes remaining in the third quarter. They broke down in plenty of other areas against a team they have to get past just to get out of their own division.
They couldn’t run the ball. Amari Cooper and Jared Cook dropped crucial throws. Michael Crabtree’s absence was glaring. Marquette King pulled a double-bonehead move on a poorly planned fake punt Cheap Jerseys Pay With Paypal and a dumb personal foul. Trying to block Von Miller looked comical at times.
A lot of that is just a function of playing the Broncos’ defense — but a lot of that has hounded the Raiders throughout an uneven start, too. They looked jet-lagged, or whatever else makes Cheap Jerseys Sale one lethargic in front of crowds 3,000 miles from home, against Washington last Sunday night. In their 2-0 start, they averaged 35.5 points and 384.5 yards; in their two losses since, those averages are 10.0 and 191.
