When San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick mocked Cam Newton and his Superman touchdown dance in the playoffs after scoring against the Panthers, Newton did not have much to say about it in the postgame.
On the set of NFL Network's "NFL AM" show in New York Thursday, Newton said a little bit more -- playfully.
"He hurt my feelings, and I think so highly of Mr. Kaepernick," Newton said with a big laugh.
Cam said there "will be" some sort of response to Kaepernick at some point but that people would have to wait and see what it would be.
Newton then lavishly praised all the current young quarterbacks in the NFL, including Kaepernick, Andrew Luck, RG3 and Russell Wilson. "I don't have no hate in my blood for nobody," Newton said. He added that he was "envious," but in a good way, of Wilson getting Seattle to the Super Bowl in his second season.
Newton is in town for the Super Bowl, and as part of that is doing some promotional work for Pizza Hut. Here's the link to Newton's appearance Thursday morning.
