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

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.
