Panthers QB Cam Newton says TD celebration was for ‘Black Power’

After Cam Newton scored a rushing touchdown in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s win over the Patriots, the Panthers quarterback stood with a raised fist in the end zone.

Newton, who stood during the national anthem before the game, said Wednesday he might have some sort of protest in the wake of President Donald Trump’s divisive comments last weekend.

Newton’s touchdown gave Carolina a 30-16 lead early in the fourth quarter and the Panthers held on for a 33-30 victory. Newton, who threw for 316 yards and three scores while rushing for 44 yards and the 7-yard touchdown, explained his touchdown celebration following the game.

Trubisky can complement those backs better with his athleticism. He has the mobility to extend a lot of pass plays. His short-to-intermediate accuracy meshes with Wright, those backs and tight end Zach Miller.

There’s no longer any possible upside with Glennon. It was ridiculous the Bears didn’t put in Trubisky for some reps after the Packers opened up a 35-7 lead early in the fourth quarter. Heck, the Packers even got Aaron Rodgers’ backup, Brett Hundley, into the game, for mop-up work. That probably tells a lot about the difference in each team’s quarterback acumen.

So if the main issue with Trubisky was that he hadn’t played enough football, why wouldn’t you, you know, let him play football? Because it’s Fox and because it’s the Cheap Jerseys MLB Bears, a legitimate follow-up question is if not then, when?

Glad we asked, because Week 5 presents the perfect timing. The Bears won’t enjoy it after that kind of defeat, but they do get an extended “mini bye” before the Monday night Cheap Jerseys NFL home game vs. Minnesota.
