Still, it was a little unbecoming of a leader to act like Newton did in front of the media, so he’s paying for it today.
But that’s not the guy Peyton Manning saw after the Super Bowl. In an interview with "TODAY," Manning revealed what he and Newton said to each other on the field after the game, and Manning said Newton was "extremely humble." Here’s Peyton’s full quote and then the clip below it:
"Sure I tell ya, Cam couldn’t have been nicer to me. He was extremely humble. He congratulated me, wished me the best. I told him just congratulations on his outstanding season and just what a great future he has ahead of him. He’ll be back in that game, I can promise ya. So, I’ve been on that side of it. It is tough — it is not an easy pill to swallow. But he was very nice to me and I really appreciated that."
