Peyton Manning Says Cam Newton Was "Extremely Humble" After Super Bowl (Video)

February 09, 2016

A lot has been made of how Cam Newton handled his post game presser, but I spent most of Monday searching for photos of a “smiling” and “gracious” Newton congratulating Peyton Manning on his second super Bowl win.

Manning himself co-signed Newton’s gesture, telling The Today Show that Cam was “humble” during their interaction.

“Sure, I tell you, Cam couldn’t have been nicer to me,” Manning said. “He was extremely humble. He congratulated me, wished me the best. I told him just congratulations on his outstanding season and just what a great future he has ahead of him.”

It’s a tired analogy, one where athletes minutes after losing the “biggest games of their lives” are subjected to some of the stupidest questions from journalist and reporters.

Not all the questions are lacking substance, but Newton’s first three questions at last night’s presser had nothing to do with the game, but more on his current mood.

Manning believes Newton will get another opportunity on the biggest stage.

“He’ll be back in that game, I can promise you,” Manning said. “So, I’ve been on that side of it. It is tough — it is not an easy pill to swallow. But he was very nice to me and I really appreciated that.”

Newton will be better because of this, whether he returns to the Super Bowl or not.

LeSean McCoy’s Alleged Nightclub Fight Video Released

All this over a damn champagne bottle?

We reported earlier that Bills star running back LeSean McCoy and Curtis "Boonah" Brinkley were involved in an altercation with two off-duty Philadelphia cops inside club Recess at around 2:45 a.m.

Now there’s video of the altercation, courtesy of Crossing Broad, but it’s really hard to see just what role McCoy played in it.

A source with knowledge of the investigation confirmed John Gonzalez’s reporting of the incident allegedly involving LeSean McCoy at Recess nightclub at around 2:45 a.m. Sunday morning– that former Pitt football player Tamarcus Porter was the aggressor and McCoy, Curtis Brinkley and Christopher Henderson became involved in a fight after Porter and off-duty Philly police officer Roland Butler began to argue over the ownership of a bottle of champagne. A melee ensued and CSN reports that two officers suffered broken ribs, one of whom may have had a skull fracture.

Video surveillance from outside showed both parties being ejected from the club, according to the report. A camera inside the club where the incident occurred “was not functional.”

LeSean McCoy Allegedly Assaulted Off-Duty Philadelphia Cops

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

According to ABC 6 Action News, two off-duty Philadelphia police officers were assaulted by current BIlls and former Eagles player LeSean McCoy.

Both officers were hospitalized as a result of the incident.

It happened around 2:30 a.m. Sunday at the Recess Lounge located at 125 South 2nd Street in Old City.

According to the police report, there was “a dispute over the purchase of champagne” between the men when “[Brinkley] grabbed the bottle.” That touched off an altercation, according to the report. A law enforcement official told CSNPhilly.com that two of the officers suffered broken ribs.

A police report was made at the time the incident took place, those sources added. However, reports say that McCoy, and a friend—former Syracuse running back Curtis Brinkely—were involved in a physical altercation with the two officers.
