Cam Newton Is The NFL's Fashion King
The cream of the crop amongst NFL players is undoubtedly former Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton. The 2015 NFL Most Valuable Player is the king of making us say "what in the hell is he wearing?" But honestly, Newton doesn't care at all. He's a fashionista of unparalleled proportions, but one outfit in particular caused social media to completely forget about his abysmal showing on Thursday Night Football.
Carolina lost to its NFC South division rival Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 20-14, during the 2019 season. Newton and Carolina's offense was abysmal, too. The Panthers QB finished 24-of-50 for 324 passing yards and rushed twice for zero yards. Explosive running back Christian McCaffrey was held to just 53 total yards on 18 touches, as Jameis Winston and company dropped Carolina to 0-2 on the young season.
But after the game in Charlotte, and even before, the buzz among fans wasn't about the one-time Super Bowl starter's play on the field. It was about Cam Newton's outfit, and in particular, yet another head scarf.
Newton loves making outlandish fashion choices. He's worn quite a few over the years, and once again, fans rose to the occasion and roasted the former Heisman Trophy winner. Everything from a "Thelma and Louise" reference to calling him a 2019 version of "E.T." was on the table, and it was pure comedy when the former MVP showed up at Bank of America Stadium.
Week after week, Newton's outfits turns postgame press conferences into a fashion week gala, which makes him the butt of every joke on social media. The fact that "Superman" hadn't won an NFL game since November 4, 2018 at that point, nor had he scored a rushing touchdown since the previous October doesn't seem to matter anymore. But what he wears? Yeah, THAT'S what is important.
Newton looks to replace Tom Brady as head man of Bill Belichick's New England Patriots for the 2020 season, and possibly beyond. Don't expect the Cam Newton outfit parade to slow down, though.
