Cam Newton: I Can't Go Out Like That | I AM ATHLETE with Brandon Marshall, Chad Johnson & More

Cam Newton sits down exclusively with Brandon Marshall, Chad Johnson and Fred Taylor in a rare public conversation about everything on and off the field.
A friendly football discussion of Cam deciding between Chad and Brandon on who the X would be in his ideal offense quickly turns up the heat to hard hitting questions on what went on this past season. Fred says Cam had the hardest job in the league following Tom Brady and relates to the tough position he was put in coming into the New England offense. Cam explains how he found the process of missing the offseason instrumental to getting in sync with his team and a lesson in why the little things are big things in the end. Brandon doesn't shy away from him talking about his up and down play during this past season while calling him out for it on air a few times. Tackling the rumors that Cam is done and seeking retirement- Cam says he's never been the favorite and that fuels him but he quickly clears up that he is not going out like that and there aren't 32 guys better than he is!!
Taking a trip down memory lane, Cam and Fred reminisce about meeting during Cam's early college football days in Florida and Cam telling the story of how Fred set the bar of professionalism and character that he desired to have in his career. The two reference their old friend and teammate "Chico" the late Aaron Hernandez which leads them into a tough discussion of disbelief and confusion with what really went on with him.
Chef Jonathan Lowe fills in for Chef Nancie and makes a vegan meal for Cam which immediately draws critique from Chad on healthy eating habits who then volunteers that he should take over Cam's diet this offseason to get him eating right.
Cam exclusively opens up about his new hat line and in celebration of Black History Month a design tribute to honoring trail blazers starting with Rosa Parks. Keeping his business hat on, Cam tells the guys that his passion for cigars, art and live music led him to open Fellaship, an upscale premium dining experience in Atlanta. Applying what he has learned on the field as a leader into running a business, Cam shares why he loves being hands on with the details and the daily operation.
Changing gears real fast- Brandon asks the guys about men's hygiene which leads into a wild conversation about manscaping and the things guys should and shouldn't do!

    This is great. I always liked Cam and thought he was given a bad deal at the end in Carolina. (kicked aside and released late) If the old owner was there that never would have happened. But his second year I NE, he'll be back to being Superman.

Hearing these these men speak about the power and importance of mental strength, working hard, elite athleticism, and knowing who you are, makes me want evaluate my performance and effort in so many areas of my life. It motivates me to do what I tell my students: ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST. This discussion was so valuable and well moderated. Thank you, gentlemen.

    And to Cam point.... He IS the trailblazer for Mobile QBs!!!! With Vick it was improv off of broken plays and QB draws and before him Slash with the Steelers but is wasn’t UNTIL Cam Newton that you started to see read options full house formations pitch options and triple options etc etc!!!!! Offenses catered for the mobile QB to succeed as a dual threat!!!! Ppl don’t understand they considered that a college offense and felt it had no place in the NFL so it was heavily frowned upon....Guys before Cam had to get it off the pocket breakdown to avoid sacks!!!! The NFL didn’t want to lose the traditional QB so players like Cam and Vick at that time were the RARE ones that they let actually stay QB... Randle El was a good QB in college and was converted to WR just like A LOT of mobile QBs....

    A lot of folks in Charlotte NC care about Cam Newton and his family. Very caring and gave a lot to the Queen City. Remembering where at the walmart Store as a Greeter, meeting so many of the Panthers at the store where I worked. He is so correct. He I'snt just another quarterback. League all to himself. I enjoyed a group of blackmen...just sitting and have a discussion and enjoying it so much. I am a senior citizen, thoroughly enjoyed the conversations.

    ...this conversation amongst these guys has many levels. It's hilarious, and informative. Respectfully, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. To say to say this, regardless of opinions about Cam, he seems to have his Endeavors in order. He knows what he want out of life. Being an entrepreneur is ALWAYS great. Cam "HIT the hammer 🔨 on the nail" when he stated, "AS A CULTURE WE'VE MADE SO MUCH MONEY FOR OTHER PEOPLE. WE DON'T TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES." Truer words have NEVER been spoken. As Florida Evans said on Good Times, "DAMN! DAMN! DAMN!" To all, be blessed and stay safe.

    One thing I do know you cannot judge a book by it's color, really I didn't know Cam Newton, and my negativity of him was immature. Now that I have got a chance to really mature to listen to him, he impressed me on so many levels with his intelligence, his knowledge, his educational mind etc., and I love that he is Cam Newton regardless what anyone thinks of him......Cam I honor you and proud of you being the most authentic individual that you are.

    1:29 Ocho is great for this podcast, but does not understand genetics evidently play the major part. Racehorses are bred to win via genetics and breed, people with better genetics have a better outcome if what they are doing, or their specialty, is what they are genetically gifted in. Ocho seriously said everyone has the same DNA, clearly not true people with different traits or DNA have different complexions in skin color, height, hair type and color, it seems like he never took biology and chemistry. Everyone can't be 7 feet and toned if they have the same diet. Cam hit this right on the spot, diet is important for your longevity in health case and point Tom Brady's TB12 diet is helping him be the oldest QB to win a SB. Your body gets disease by what you put in that doesn't mesh with your genetics. According to hereditary traits or genetics people are allergic to certain foods.

    Genetics is key other people don't eat like me. And others that eat worst can look better back and forth. Food is key. And alot of those foods shouldn't do that for them as such as I can't eat all that or I'd be sick. Blacks are also prone to diabetes and auto immune. It don't work the way to eat all that and do that. I can be quick and strong but I see people only get so much muscle. I'm short. My mom said ain't to fit. My mom is though because I got everyone to be healthy. My dad side obese all of them. My self short dad taller all else short im the youngest tallest but short. I am not fat but I do have weight where I carry fat. Their is alot going into it.
