The Bears were getting beaten up by the Packers on Thursday night. They deserve all the heat they get for the way they decided to let out their frustration.
With Green Bay leading 21-7 with less than five minutes to go in the third quarter, Chicago linebacker Danny Trevathan delivered a vicious and illegal helmet-to-helmet hit to Green Bay wide receiver Davante Adams.
At the time, the Packers were backed up by a holding penalty and facing a long third-and-goal, and Adams caught the ball well short of the goal line. The red zone stop would have kept the Bears’ faint hopes of winning this game alive.
The comment set off a stir league-wide with the NFL, Pro Football Writers of America and the Association for Women in Sports Media all denouncing his comment as disrespectful and condescending. Newton also lost his endorsement deal with Dannon Yogurt.
“I’m a father to two beautiful daughters and, at their age, I try to instill in them that they can do and be anything they want to be,” Newton continued. “The fact that, during this whole process I’ve already lost sponsors and countless fans, I realize that the joke is really on me.

“And to the reporters, to the journalists, to the moms — super-moms — to the daughters, the sisters and the women all around the world, I sincerely apologize and hope you can find the Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys kindness in your heart to forgive me.”
