CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has changed his stance on how he views concussions now that hes had one.Newton, who just last month downplayed concerns over the long-term effects of repeated blows to the head, said Wednesday that he now better understands that concussions are real.Speaking publicly for the first time about the concussion he sustained Oct. 2 against the Atlanta Falcons, the leagues reigning MVP said he needs to be more careful in the future, calling the hit preventable. In the fourth quarter with the Panthers down two scores Newton purposely -- and inexplicably -- appeared to slow down as he approached the end zone on a 2-point conversion run.That allowed Falcons linebacker Deion Jones to hit Newton from the side. Newton said he never saw Jones coming.Newton doesnt remember reaching out the ball to score anyway, saying thats when I knew I was messed up.He left the game and did not return.He sat out the following week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as well with concussion-related symptoms.After watching the play on film Newton said, I was like, `just run through the (dang) end zone, Cam.While Newton said he intends to be more careful to eliminate unnecessary hits, he doesnt see his first career concussion changing the way he plays the game.I look at certain quarterbacks throughout the league and say, `Dang, I wish I could do that. Man, I wish I could win football games and make it look so cool like Tom Brady. Man, I wish I had the throwing accuracy or throwing style like a Matt Stafford or Aaron Rodgers, said Newton, who has run for more touchdowns than QB in league history. But my edge is running the football inside the tackle. If somebody tries to take that away from me, for what it is, thats me. Thats going forever be my edge in this league.The 6-foot-5, 245-pound Newton only ran the ball twice in Carolinas 41-38 loss to the New Orleans on Oct. 16 -- his first game back from the concussion. But he said that wont necessarily be the game plan when the Panthers host the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.I know everybody was watching and saying `Well, how many times is Cam going to run? Thats me. Thats who I am. I would prefer to be involved in the game, Newton said.Newton said his ability to run makes defense prepare for extra things.So when you take that away, then the defense is like, `Yes! We dont have to prepare for a (running) quarterback, Newton said. So Im trying to find any and every way to create edges for us.In the past, Newton has downplayed concerns about concussions.After the sixth-year quarterback took four helmet-to-helmet hits in a season-opening loss to the Denver Broncos, Newton said at a press conference he wasnt worried about the long-term effects of cumulative hits to the head.Im not here to worry about retirement plans, Newton said on Sept. 14. Im not here to worry about pensions. Im not here to worry about workers (compensation). Im here to win football games, simple and plain.Newton is thinking differently now.He said he can relate to what Panthers offensive tackle Michael Oher is going through. Oher is expected to miss his fourth straight game on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals because of a concussion.Newton said he is even considering doing something to help educate younger football players and coaches about the dangers of concussions through his work with his foundation.At (the NFL) level, they are focusing on it, Newton said. But in Pee Wee ball, or high school football, that is what turns my stomach because they are being taught by some people who dont really know football.Newton said one thing is for sure -- he doesnt want another concussion.I aint never had that feeling (before), Newton said. I dont want it to happen to me or nobody else.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale Adidas NMD Shoes 2018 .

Cheap Adidas NMD China .com) - The women will also have a new champion at the Australian Open.MIAMI -- The list of coaches with back-to-back NBA championships includes some of the games giants -- names such as Red Auerbach, Phil Jackson, Chuck Daly, and of course Pat Riley. Erik Spoelstra is now part of their fraternity. And he seems completely unimpressed by that. At just 42 years old, Spoelstra is now a two-time champion coach with the Miami Heat, having guided the club to the last three NBA Finals and last two titles. Only 12 other men in the history of the league have multiple titles as a coach. Only seven others have collected rings in back-to-back years -- and of those, six have been immortalized in the Basketball Hall of Fame. To most people, joining such a group would sound like some major accomplishment. For Spoelstra, not so much. "Not really," Spoelstra said, asked if hed stopped to consider the historical significance of his back-to-back titles. "No." Thats why this week, when Spoelstra would be within his rights to continue celebrating Miamis seven-game triumph over the San Antonio Spurs for this seasons title, hes not on a beach somewhere. Instead, hes in his office, where he plans to be for the next few weeks to prepare for the looming draft (even though the Heat currently have no picks to use Thursday night), the start of free agency and Miamis upcoming summer-league appearances. Hes the guy who started in the Heat video room before working his way up to being entrusted with what Heat managing general partner Micky Arison and Riley, the teams president, have spent nearly two decades building. Spoelstra likes to quip that for the first two years, Riley didnt even know his name. "I dont think that he gets enough credit for his abilities to be able to manage us," said Heat guard Dwyane Wade, who has spent all 10 of his pro seasons working with Spoelstra. "He does a great job of managing egos. He does a great job of keeping us level-headed. It takes a special guy to have guys of this calibre to all stay on one path and not jump off. Thats his strength, his ability to be able manage this team. Thats his greatness with this unit." Spoelstra told his team in the beginning of training camp -- and on a preseason trip to China -- that this path to a championship would have to be different. He was right. His team rolled through the regular season, winning 27 straight games at one point on the way to a 66-16 record. But in the playoffs, the Heat had to grind, first through a 1-0 deficit in the second round against Chicago, then a Game 7 against Indiana in the East finals, then seven more games against the Spurs. "Starting in China together, having an opportunity to visit the White House together, having an opportunity to sharre the All-Star weekend together, 27-game win streak, and then we get into the playoffs, after that first round that playoff run felt more challenging," Spoelstra said.dddddddddddd "In some ways it was extremely gratifying." On the way to the 2012 title, he had a black replica of the NBA championship trophy made as part of his motivational tactics to use during the playoffs. And a similar ploy was used this time around. Another black trophy, this time with a slightly different design and theme, was part of the bond the Heat forged for the playoffs, a reminder of the promises players and coaches made along the way. A marker was used to denote on the trophy how the Heat were advancing along the title path. "It bound our agreement of what we would be willing to do and to sacrifice for each other," Spoelstra said. "We made our marks, in order of seniority. The couple middle rounds, we made with blood red because those series were so dang physical. And the last one, out of ultimate respect for our competitor, absolute, ultimate respect for who we were playing, we made them in silver for the Spurs." It took more than a motivational trick to beat the Spurs. One of Spoelstras best memories of his second championship season as coach of the Heat was the aftermath of the teams most lopsided defeat. It was Game 3 of the NBA Finals, a night where the Heat lost to the Spurs by 36 points and fell behind in the championship series. Spoelstra, searching for answers, retreated to his hotel room. The first knock on his door was from assistant coach David Fizdale. The next was from another assistant, Dan Craig. And the third was from Riley, who was bearing gifts. "I was despondent. I was beside myself," Spoelstra said. "I went back to my suite to break down film after the game. Fiz stopped by so we could work it out. Dan Craig stopped by to bring us film and to work it out. And about 20 minutes later Pat knocks on my door, and he comes in with three bottles of wine and he said Coach, what do you need me to do? So we gave him a laptop and he helped us break down film. "It was one of the most special moments in my professional career." Days later, Riley and Spoelstra were arm-in-arm in the back hallways of AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami, celebrating another Heat championship. For Riley, its his ninth overall. For Spoelstra, his third, including the one he claimed as an assistant in 2006. They have no plan to stop now. "Its going to be hard to keep up with what were doing for his whole career," Wade said. "But he is one of the games young greats. And he is on the path of the Pat Rileys and those kind of coaches."
