Titans linebackers on disgust with Cam Newton’s dancing: That was last year

The Titans will host the Panthers on Saturday in a preseason rematch of a game that the Panthers won 27-10 last season.

The comfortable Carolina victory was notable for the Titans taking issue with Panthers quarterback Cam Newton’s familiar post-touchdown dancing. Titans linebackers Avery Williamson and Wesley Woodyard confronted Newton in the end zone after a score, leading other players to get between them and head off any possibility of a fight.

Williamson and Woodyard say that they don’t expect any fireworks this time around. Williamson said he was upset about the score and the length of Newton’s gyrations, but that what’s in the past will remain there. Woodyard had a similar message.

“[Newton] is a crowd-pleaser,” Woodyard said, via the Tennessean. “That’s what Cam does. That’s why he’s one of the faces of the NFL. We welcome that, just not on our territory. But that was last year. We look forward to this year.”

After that game last season, Newton offered the simplest plan to deal with displeasure about the way he reacts to touchdowns. Newton said teams that don’t want him to dance shouldn’t let him score and we’ll see if the Titans do a better job on that front this time around.

  1. Newton dances and dabs when he is up big on a lesser teams….. I wonder how running away from his own fumble in front of the entire world will impact Cam’s behavior….

    Keep on Pouting

  2. I don’t care about Newton dancing too much but it is a bad look. Maybe focus on not crapping your pants in the SB instead of what dance you’re gonna do next.

  3. You know, nhpats, I used to think that your fixation with Cam Newton was an attempt to deflect from Brady’s cheating (#deflectgate), but now I realize even that reasoning is too intelligent for you.

    Your irrational obsession with Cam simply stems from the fact that you’re afraid to play the Panthers. Brady’s Pats have played Newton’s Panthers once and, like you said, Cam ended the game dancing and dabbing while up on a lesser team. I doubt his behavior will be any different the next time.

  4. When the Broncos prevented Cam from scoring, then he became a suck in the post game interview. Can’t have it both ways Cam. If you wanna dance when you win, then be a man when you lose!

  5. Let’s see how many championships has Carolina won?….
    ..(listening)………….(hearing only crickets)………..

  6. Afraid to play the Panthers? That’s the dumbest comment of the day. You’re sounding as if they are the second coming of the ’85 Bears or the Steelers of the 70’s. These teams won championships…

  7. Spare me your anti Cam Netwton Vitriol… He has done more positive activities in his life than all you naysayers who just don’t like black QBs to show emotions… Where were all these pedantic Comments when Money Manzel was hooting and hollering on the field and playing himself out of the league? Discount Doublecheck anyone????

    Yeah, must be hard to hear anything at all with your head up your own hind parts…

    Carolina is an expansion team from ’95 who has already had 2 trips to the dance and multiple playoff appearances, which is more than I can say for New England’s first 22 seasons. We’ll get our much deserved Super Bowl win eventually, and when we do the haters who were SCARED (yes, flexx91, SCARED) to play us all along will all have brand new garbage to whine about.

    ======================================

    There we go, I was waiting on the race card. But when all of us criticize Rodgers and his stupid “discount double check” belt pose as much as Cam, then what do you call that?

    They’re all lesser teams *shrugs*

  11. “……Newton said teams that don’t want him to dance shouldn’t let him score.”

    The Denver Broncos can say with 100% certainty. That this is the best way to stop his stupid dancing. The unfortunate side effect is he becomes a petulant child and throws hissy fits because he didn’t get his way!

  12. as long as he is dancing, he is not focusing all his thoughts and efforts toward winning football games.
    With that god given talent he was blessed with… that’s good for the other 31 teams.
    I would rather cheer his attention craving antics, than his play between the lines.
    Work on your dance moves, and not your fumble recovery’s.

  13. Newton did get sacked 5 times last year in Nashville. And if you start dancing like he did on someone else’s field, of course the other team’s players will get in your face. What was he expecting? Go Titans.

  14. If Cam doesn’t get to score, than he will have a temper tantrum or pity party. Immaturity!
    Anyone but a QB, would get an excessive celebration penalty.

  15. Don’t worry he’ll pay the price. His lack of discipline, judgement, and maturity is the reason why the immense physical talent is wasted. Playing with youthful passion and enthusiasm is an asset; behaving like a child all your life is not.

    If you don’t like it.
    STOP IT !

    I’m pretty sure that’s exactly what the Broncos did to end last season and leave Cam in the fetal position…..
