Outside the gimmicks -- Panthers are good

They dab and dance. They give footballs to kids after TDs and rip down banners to defend their home turf. They shoot music videos in the locker room, and their QB wears sequined shoes and designer pants. Reality TV show?

Panthers coach Ron Rivera on Cam Newton being named the NFL MVP: "This validates him, and deservedly so. He's done the things that we've asked of him, and he's developed into a player that a lot of us believed he could be. But for him, there's still more to come."
