Cam Newton is no stranger to taking big hits, he has taken them his entire NFL career, however it seems in 2016 he is not being protected as a QB by the officials much like other franchise QBs are. After an obvious missed call on a hit below the knees that shook Newton up, he had finally had enough.
Newton, in a post-game press conference stating:
"It's really taking the fun out of the game for me honestly. Because at times I don't even feel safe. And enough is enough. I plan on talking to Commissioner Goodell about this. But it's not fun. And I don't know what I have to do."
Whether Newton's plea will help his cause or not, something needs to be fixed or Newton is going to end up getting seriously hurt.
