Cam Newton Trying to Make Me Like Him

I’ve got to say.  It’s starting to work.  I think Cam Newton has acted like baby at points this season, and I’m not the only one that thinks that, but he has also done some things in the public that make me think he’s not a bad guy.  Maybe it’s his handlers, I don’t know, but whatever it is, I like it.

First he did this NFL Play 60 commercial that was funny (sure the kid was the funny part but Cam was good too):


Then there came this commercial from Foot Locker that also shows Cam to have a bit of a sense of humor and good comic delivery:


I’ll give him a pass for some of this behavior this season.  He’s a very young guy and still has to learn how to handle the press.  If I were his manager, I’d make sure he kept doing commercials like these to show the public another side of him that people can like and get behind.
