beware nfc south: Cam Newton's extreme plan for being a better QB: giving up sex for a month

42 posts in this topic

NFL players have their fascinating offseason routines to help preserve their bodies, and they’re all a little bit different and interesting in their own right.

Cam Newton’s approach, however, sounds more like a prizefighter’s before a big boxing match. And a bit extreme, if you ask us.

In an appearance on “The Late Late Show” with James Corden, the Carolina Panthers quarterback discussed his becoming vegan, having given up meat years ago but now surrendering fish from his diet — including his beloved Filet-O-Fish from McDonald’s, which used to be his post-victory celebration meal.

Cutting that out surely was hard. But his other sacrifice for self-improvement feels a bit more Draconian to us.

For the month of March, Newton apparently is giving up sex, too. Have a listen:

 

Climax-free March

“I hope this is an adult crowd, and it looks like it is,” Newton said to the studio audience. “No climax.”

So that sounds like he’s giving up intercourse as well as any, ahem, private workouts as well. Bro, whatever works ...

T.S. Eliot once said April was the cruelest month, but we’re staring to rethink that a bit now.

Newton was having one of his better seasons in a few years in 2018 while the Panthers started out 6-2, but a shoulder injury limited him and eventually sidelined him late in the season as the team went into the tank. We’re not sure how a celibacy regimen might help his throwing arm get better, but then again we’re not licensed health care providers either.

But will it actually help?

So let’s get this straight. No gambling in January. Vegan in February. Sex-free in March. Is Newton going to give up smiling in April?

"It makes my mind stronger," Newton said. "I feel like if I go back and I say I did those things, I'm mentally stronger."

Newton is not the first athlete to self-impose this kind of restraint. Boxers famously did this before big fights, and other athletes have done it prior to matches or games as a way of focusing their energies (or something). Former NFL player Garry Cobb said he believes there’s absolutely something to it.

 

 

For Newton, the month of March is soon ending, a little more than a week away from, funny enough, April Fool’s Day. So he’s almost to the finish line.

But two things: Newton’s next game — assuming he’s healthy enough to throw — is August at the earliest. And there have been scores of studies in recent years suggesting that there is no link between abstinence and athletic success. So we say, Cam, let yourself be free! Or just wait the nine days and be stronger-willed than most normal folks out there.

I've already given my opinions on the NFC South coming into 2019. I don't think there's any team better than the Panthers based on what I've seen since the end of 2018 and this off season with all the salary cap issues, contracts, and cuts being made. I'm thinking like a sports analyst, not a fan. Any fan wants their own team to win it all. I only respect Cam Newton for being from College Park. A lot of Georgia natives hate Cam Newton because he's always played for our arch-rival teams.

Isn’t it possible Cam misses the season or has that news been updated and I missed it

The more the media keeps questioning Cam's status, the angrier he gets. Never make Cam angry. This off season for the Panthers and Cam Newton reminds me of Matt Ryan and the Falcons coming into 2016 when Matt Ryan was coming off a horrible year and there were doubters of people saying "trade him" before he had his best season and led us to the Super Bowl.

Except Cam can’t check his emotions like Ryan can.

Also, the majority of NFC South winners historically have been the underdogs who went from worst to first (or a losing record to first).

Every QB in the league has a different style that fits into their system. Michael Vick or Russell Wilson's games are different than Matt Ryan or Drew Brees.

I made it three months.... That poor girl. 

When my wife had our second, she was hurting down there so we went a LONG time without. I didn’t know how to act when we got back to it

It was three months no climax at all. That 3rd month I had to be careful in a strong wind if I was wearing shorts.... 

After the first month you're ready to ravage anything that moves, even fatties. ***** dangerous lol

That doesn't answer the fact Cam can't control his emotions.

So I guess sex is what caused him to throw out his shoulder? I would have thought that would have been more of a wrist injury, but I guess it's all in the technique.

First, who admits this to the media?

Second, I feel sorry for his maid who cleans his soon to be soiled sheets each night
