CAM NEWTON WITH BOB COSTAS

On how he sees the game now vs. his first NFL snap: “It’s more about managing and understanding what you have to do. When I first came into the league, I wanted to make every single play a big play. Having a play-making ability kind of is your gift and a curse. But in this league, you have to sustain drives.”

On his experience playing in the Superdome: “It’s a loud atmosphere, to say the least. These fans are not your friends. They talk to you, they say things, the costumes that they wear; it’s rather interesting to see. But as a player, you have to block all that out because at the end of the day, it’s all about the 11 on 11 that are playing in between the goal posts.”
