Would it truly be a Cam Newton press conference if we weren’t still talking about it the next day?
After the Panthers’ 20-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, Newton was asked about the increased touched Devin Funches received on Sunday after Newton’s top target Kelvin Benjamin was traded last week.
Newton said Funches is growing into his new role and added the Panthers have to keep pounding despite losing a key player— except Newton’s analogy didn’t exactly fit.
“Yeah, we just lost a great player (in Benjamin), but nevertheless, the Titanic still has to go,” Newton said.
The Titanic sank in April 1912 after it is believed the ship was punctured by an iceberg underwater. According to historic resources, over 1,300 people were on board, but only approximately 700 survived.
