ICYMI in NFL Week 8: Cam, Sherman, Norman critique officials (The Associated Press)

If it’s a given that NFL officials will be criticized now and then, such bad-mouthing becomes that much more significant when some of the league’s most prominent voices – Cam Newton, Richard Sherman, Josh Norman – rise in unison to complain about the men in stripes. Panthers quarterback Newton, the reigning near-unanimous MVP, was fed up after having his right knee twisted on a low shot from Cardinals defensive tackle Calais Campbell in the third quarter of Carolina’s 30-20 victory over Arizona in a rematch of last season’s NFC championship game. This time, Newton noted the hits to the head while also making an impassioned plea for more protection in the pocket from officials, who he’d rather have make more calls than frequently explain they were sorry for not throwing a flag.
