For some reason, a certain group of the media likes to recycle the old and tired argument that Cam Newton is a sore loser – I have my theories why, but that’s an article for another day.
So it’s not surprising that after UVA’s historic loss to UMBC in the NCAA Tournament, Brock Huard – a member of the Cam hating brigade – would use the opportunity to take a shot at the Panthers’ QB.
First, I think it’s important to note that the quote Cam referenced was first said by Vince Lombardi – you know the man who the NFL Championship trophy is named after, but I digress. No need for me to roast this guy, that’s what Twitter is for.
Here are some of the best responses to Brock’s tweet.
Show me a tweet from Brock Heard, and I'll read his bio and find out he was a backup quarterback in the NFL. Accustomed to losing I guess. https://t.co/HYrFO4Dq3a

As an NFL analyst do you know that Vince Lombardi said that quote first? Do you know who that is? It's a joke that you try to find a way to bash Cam years later and can't even do it right.

You must really dislike Cam. Or why bring him up when there are many others you could use as an opposite example of this guy..,like Brady!

Actually Brock it was Vince Lombardi who made this quote famous that Cam repeated in the press conference but you just keep going with it. Tom Brady also made walking off the field without congratulating Nick Foles famous..why don’t you mention that?

Maybe Bennett can teach you what it's like to be a first class sportscaster, or whatever you do, and gracious professional. Tweet referencing Cam for a quote famously said by someone else says more about you than it ever could about Cam. It's clear who is the loser.

Twitter still undefeated.
