Falcons linebacker De’Vondre Campbell is taking a stand and ensuring fans they will not end up like Carolina Panthers after their Superbowl Bowl loss.
The Cam Newton led Panthers started were 17-2 2015 and finished 2016 6-10
Campbell didn’t shy away from controversy. He gave his opinion on why Panthers had a down year.
“felt sorry for themselves”
Campbell placed the blame solely on Quarterback Cam Newton for not setting the proper tone for his team.
I tend to agree with Campbell.
The Quarterback performance sets the tone for his team. Newton had without a doubt the worst year as a starter with a completion percentage of 52.9, 3509 passing yards, 19 TDs, 14 Ints and a quarterback rating of 75.8
Far from his MVP Season where he had 3837 Pass Yards, 35 TDs, 10 Ints 99.4 QBR
The question I have for YOU, Falcons Fam. Will the Falcons soak in their Super Bowl loss like the Carolina Panthers?
Here’s what De’Vondre thinks
“I did not like that, man,” Campbell says. “You’re the quarterback of this franchise. You lost. Get up there. Be a man. And talk about it. You can’t get it back. There’s nothing you can do about it except go up there and be a man about it. … He’s the captain of the team. They sulked so much that it definitely affected them last year if you ask me.”
Lets make this CLEAR!!!
Matt Ryan and Cam Newton are COMPLETE OPPOSITES. Ryan takes full responsibility for the loses. Has never soaked in sadness after a big loss like Newton.
So I wouldn’t worry about reigning MVP Matt Ryan not stepping up. He’s the definition of a TRUE leader. You don’t have to worry about keeping him motivated, nor acting like a spoiled brat in a press conference.
You can bet your last dollar the Falcons will be ready to kick the Chicago Bears ass in the September 10 Week 1 opener.
