Panthers don't want Cam Newton to stop running

Despite previous injuries suffered running the football, the Carolina Panthers don't want to stop quarterback Cam Newton to dial back his style. If anything, they want him to keep it up. Newton has rushed for 2,571 career yards and 33 touchdowns. “No, he’s got to be Cam," Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman said. "You don’t hold back a thoroughbred, you don’t. I don’t know if you watched the Belmont. When [American] Pharoah came around that backstretch and that horse was nipping at his heels, the jockey let him go. He didn’t whip him. He’s just, ‘Go baby!’ And that’s what a thoroughbred does. You don’t change their game. You can’t do it.” Follow me on Twitter: @RavensInsider Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun
