Cam: Don't like dancing? Keep me out of end zone

Cam Newton keeps scoring and keeps winning. And other teams can't find anything else to whine about other than his celebrations.

Newton had a particularly lengthy dance after scoring a touchdown to put Sunday's 27-10 win in Tennessee out of reach, which angered Titans linebacker Avery Williamson. Newton's response to Williamson was to hilariously bust out a few more moves in response.

Every game, all season

"I'm a firm believer if you don't like it, keep me out (of the end zone)," Newton said after the game, via the Charlotte Observer.

Marcus Mariota didn't have a problem with the celebrating, noting that football is supposed to be a "fun game" and that's Newton's personality. Titans coach Mike Mularkey felt differently.

"He did it all game, which I guess that's acceptable," Mularkey said. "It's not taunting, but in my mind, it is."

Cam is in the MVP discussion, a notion that won't fade after he completed 21-of-26 passes for 217 yards and a touchdown on Sunday. And that probably won't end the discussion of his celebrations.

"(Cam) can get under a guy's skin without saying a word to him," receiver Ted Ginn said after the game.
