In light of a recent concussion, many are supposing the Carolina Panthers and quarterback Cam Newton would take a hard look at making sure it doesn’t happen often – which wold mean Newton would have to run less.
But Newton isn’t to change for anything, running between the tackles is what he’s built for – let the chips fall where they may.
“I look at the game different. That makes defenses prepare for extra things,” Newton said, per NFL.com.
“So if you take that away, the defense is like ‘Yes, we don’t have to prepare for a quarterback.’ I’m trying to find any and every way to create edges for us, whether that’s me running around, that’s me blocking. I’m just trying to win football games.”
