Cam Newton may be changing as a player, but hes not changing his style.

Newton said Monday that, while he agrees with sharp criticism from former NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia regarding Newtons sartorial choices, Newton wont be dressing any differently.

You go into this game with two touchdowns, four interceptions, you threw what? Three more interceptions? Garcia said after New Englands 33-6 loss, via USA Today. You get yanked in the second half, theres nothing good going your way. Why are you dressing like that to bring more attention to yourself? Id be trying to ask the equipment managers, Put me in your jock-sock cart and sneak me in the back door and Ill show up on the field and do the best that I can.'

You know whats crazy? I agree with him, Newton said Monday on WEEI, via USA Today. And the fact that hes a former player, he has every right to say that. And until that happens, so be it. But thats another opinionated theory, and its fair to say. I know I come off to so many different people so many different ways, and thats fine. You know what, hes exactly right. But Im not changing the way I dress. Im sorry. . . .

I dont know Jeff, but I would say this: I do certain things because of the culture Im from. And where Im from I dont know where Jeff is from, and I dont want to harp on it too long but lets just say hes right.

Nowadays, most people would look at Newtons off-field attire and on-field performance and say, Who cares? And those who do care, frankly, shouldnt. At a time when all of us have far better things to worry about, no one should spend a second obsessing about the things other people do when it comes to their personal lives.
