Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton used a mind-boggling analogy following his team’s Sunday win against the Atlanta Falcons.
“We just lost a great player, but nevertheless the Titanic still has to go,” Newton told the media.
For those of you who might have forgotten, the Titanic is currently at the bottom of the ocean after one of the worst maritime incidents in human history.

Should I tell Cam Newton the bad news about the Titanic or will someone else? https://t.co/TzMOGEFpvH

So, there’s no chance Newton has ever seen “Titanic,” right? Because nobody can watch that movie and think it ended well for anybody involved.
He could have used just about any other analogy, and it would have been better. I believe the usual saying is, “The show must go on.” He should just have kept it simple.
Who do you think had to break the news to him that DiCaprio and most other people didn’t survive the movie? Somebody in the organization has to sit him down and get him to watch the movie before today is over. A team can’t have its quarterback out there making these mental errors. It’s a bad sign of things to come.
