The real reason Cam Newton stormed out of his Super Bowl press conference
Cam Newton didn’t play well in Carolina’s Super Bowl 50 loss to the Denver Broncos, so it wasn’t a surprise when he offered one-word answers to the media before getting up and walking off early.
Most figured it was just Newton in a bad mood.
But now we know the real reason why Cam bailed: He heard Denver’s Chris Harris explain close by that their gameplan was to make Carolina prove it could throw the football (which obviously the Panthers did not do well on Sunday).
Here’s what Harris said: "Load the box, force y’all to throw the ball. Can you throw the football? That was the gameplan."
Now watch this video of Cam listening to Harris’ words before walking off.

When told Cam could hear his words loud and clear, Harris told Josina Anderson he was upset the NFL put them in that situation:
Chris Harris to me after realizing later his voice was audible during Cam’s presser: “Damn that’s the NFL’s fault for putting us that close"

Now it all makes sense.
