PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Not to look past the Cardinals on Sunday, but the Eagles’ Thursday Night Football matchup against Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers is just six days.
So it was the perfect time for Eagles fan 7-year-old Reese from Ocean County to teach Newton about routes. Newton, of course, laughed at a female reporter for asking about routes during a press conference earlier in the week.
Earlier in the week, Jourdan Rodrigue asked Newton about wide receiver Devin Funchess’ route running, the former league MVP smiled and said, “it’s funny to hear a female talk about routes. It’s funny.”
Rodrigue responded on Twitter.
Newton apologized in a video.
“After careful thought, I understand that my word choice was extremely degrading and disrespectful to women,” he said. “To be honest, that was not my intentions. And if you are a person who took offense to what I said, I sincerely apologize to you.”
