SORE WINNER: Cam Newton Trolled By Falcons Owner Arthur Blank
Having a signature celebration dance is pretty awesome, and I think most of us would have one if we were anywhere near as cool as Cam Newton. Having said that, it can also be turned against you in your worst of times; which is exactly what happened to Newton on Sunday.
After the Falcons handed the Panthers their first regular season loss in over a full calendar year, they immediately took to dabbing, starting all the way at the top with Atlanta owner Arthur Blank.
That's actually not a terrible dab, although it comes across as a little pathetic when you consider that the Panthers are 14-1 and have had their playoff spot sealed for weeks while the Falcons would need a miracle to make it to the postseason.
Blank wasn't the only one dabbing either. Check out linebacker O'Brien Schofield throwning one out there as well.
Ok guys, we get it. You won a big game and spoiled the Panthers' shot at a perfect regular season. But they're still a Super Bowl favorite and you're...well, you're in second place. It's as simple as that.
If I were a Falcons fan (which I am most gratefully not) I'd find it a little disheartening that the owner and players revel this openly in moral victories despite their team having won just one playoff game in the past decade. The Panthers have steamrolled the NFC South and have been getting better every year since Cam Newton arrived in Carolina. The closest thing the Falcons have to real success is mimicking those who actually have it.
