    So LSU back to being sorry

  2. C j on March 11, 2020 at 9:32 pm

    Eric B could still be cams QB coach

  3. malone77 on March 11, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    Still waiting to hear what this could mean for cam.

  4. Promis QS Panda on March 11, 2020 at 9:36 pm

    I shouldn’t have clicked on this video. i thought it would have some informative take on what Joe Brady could bring to my panthers and how that would affect Cam Newton….all I heard was. "White people, white people, white people suck. Blacks are oppressed." Man stfu…

  5. Thomas Coffey on March 11, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    Stephen A not even talking about the question at hand because he cant see past race himself! It’s 2020, cmon man

  6. OXDH AOXT on March 11, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    Steven A I’m always on your side with that argument but Joe Brady earned this

  7. Alchemica Blackwood on March 11, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    Topic: World Chess Championship

    Stephen A: Where da black chess champions be at! Why da aint’ mo black chess champions?

  8. Christian Verni on March 11, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    I thought they were gonna talk ab Cam and Brady and then Stephen A. starts talking racist again

  9. Steelman on March 11, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    They not giving Joe Burrows enough credit. Joe executed and was accurate, decision making was off the chart. Not sure joe Brady had much to do with that.

  10. John Williams on March 11, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    What’s the question again?

  11. Keith Hoefer on March 11, 2020 at 9:41 pm

    Joe brady ain’t white, he’s Irish ☻

  12. Farquad Shmoogle on March 11, 2020 at 9:42 pm

    SAS: Why there so many young white coaches getting opportunities?
    everyone: Where are the young black coaches working their way up to get those opportunities?

    Bc seriously. Look at players that dont make it, or play and retire. Not many black players go into coaching. Look at Kellen Moore. He was just a player 3 seasons ago. But you know, he QBd Boise St high scoring offense, was in Garrett’s system. He learned from 2 high pace systems, and made his own in it. Now, did he get an opportunity really fast? Yes, but you know, he went to the direction of coaching. With a lot of black athletes, the way they seem to go is ESPN, FOX, as analysts. Where are the former NFL black players going into coaching. Starting from bottom, like a special teams assistant coach? WR coach? Arent most WRs in the NFL black? so where are former WRs coaching them? Like Greg Jennings had a good career, but what is he now? analyst. I dont want to hear, white coaches are getting all the opportunities, when black players arent really even trying to coach. If not in the NFL, why not go try to coach in college?

  13. Jr King on March 11, 2020 at 9:44 pm

    Stfu A. Smith

  14. sladesurfer on March 11, 2020 at 9:44 pm

    Sigh race again…where’s the outcry for Asians

  15. MarkiestDëMagnificent91 on March 11, 2020 at 9:44 pm

    SAS I get you on the subject but this dude won lsu a championship, I would get it if he had losing seasons.

  16. Lathan Starnes on March 11, 2020 at 9:44 pm

    Is Stephen is so sure that a black person would be the best man for the job he should inform us all who they are and why they deserve it over Joe Brady and the rest of the OC’s who got a job.

  17. f3k_Muhammad on March 11, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    Had respect for Stephen a Smith but since he starts bringing up the race card this guy is nothing my book

  18. Rogue Gaming on March 11, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    Bye bye Cam. He’s gonna get traded. I love cam but it’s time for him to leave. Panthers are trying to get a fresh start.

  19. C j on March 11, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    Eric b & cam would’ve been like bo Jackson & cam in alburn

    Smh tepper smh

  20. Jonathan Sims on March 11, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    Dont be surprised if Cam and a few #1 (2020 & 2021) are traded and they go after that #1 pick. Just a hunch of a feeling.

  21. Kory Green on March 11, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    College football or the NFL doesn’t need affirmative action. The market will work itself out. I sure wish they would’ve answered the question. What does the Brady hire mean for Newton?

  22. Sam Spence on March 11, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    How does race even get into this? Panthers hired an OC, which isnt part of the Rooney rule, who just led the best offense in college history…he was the most qualified. Black, white, Asian, Hispanic, indian…who cares lol its who ever is the most QUALIFIED, Not the most black

  23. HAWTPOCKET57 on March 11, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    Steven please quit being racist, its not always the color of the skin, NOBODY deserves anything because of skin color, white black brown and so on. Please stop

  24. London Moore on March 11, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    Nice to know Stephen A. didnt wanna talk about Joe Brady..

  25. Edward Lynch on March 11, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    So hes accusing carolina of being racist? We signed eric ried. Lmao

  26. Raymond Grady III on March 11, 2020 at 10:04 pm

    Its still the owners prerogative and decision who he or she wants to hire Steven!! Don’t you THINK??

  27. Jesse Kauffman on March 11, 2020 at 10:04 pm

    I’m so sick about this subject.

  28. Shawn Reed on March 11, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    Panther should trade cam for another first round pick go get Isaiah Simmons and a top OL. Afterword go after teddy brigewater in free agency.

  29. casey stockton on March 11, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    Ugh a race issue? Really? Keep that out of football. Joe is who the Panthers wanted

  30. Shantorey Wilkins on March 11, 2020 at 10:08 pm


  31. Vripper on March 11, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    Cam Newton Comeback Player Of The Year.

  32. Divine _34 on March 11, 2020 at 10:10 pm

    This is not a race isssue period

  33. Luke Willis on March 11, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    “Joe Brady deserves this job. I’m happy for him he did a good job… but they should’ve hired a black person”

  34. The Local Tuna on March 11, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    Thanks for answering the question! Your African American so is Cam? Y’all have opportunity I’m not in the white and not in the NFL or associated with football but you don’t see me complaining or crying about it

  35. N Morris on March 11, 2020 at 10:15 pm

    Cam’s doing better next year

  36. Devaughn Anderson on March 11, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    Can Stephen A not bring up race for once when talking about these coaching hires. Does he want these nfl teams to have a preference to black coaches

  37. Jatutu Ebadon on March 11, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    Stick to the topic Stephen A. Right now you are crying instead of making a point.

  38. Charles Adams on March 11, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    Not likely cam is not the passer borrows was and Brady. Did likely McKee brrows into the passer he was

  39. Jason c on March 11, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    Kind of center minded when there are not just caucasian and African Americans in this world of sports, why doesnt stephen a bring up opportunities for every other race as well if he wants to play that hand. Representing one races handling seems to show he can care less about others. I’m glad to see the Asian kicker in Atlanta do well. So what about Asian/Hispanic/etc whom look to have a chance, look at the ratio in numbers across the nfl, 🤔.

  40. Arthur Moore on March 11, 2020 at 10:17 pm


  41. DoomsdayIsHere on March 11, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    Here we go again pushing the devide.

  42. Genesis John on March 11, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    What kind of Dennis Rodman this man looks like is after the man in a dress became the new low of life

  43. Bass Fishing Freak on March 11, 2020 at 10:19 pm

    All you undercover Bama fans can keep hating on him but he is superman and will be back!

  44. Vripper on March 11, 2020 at 10:20 pm

    Brady should have went to the Giants

  45. UNSC Sprit of fire CFV-88 on March 11, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    Simple the Panthers are trying to build a grate future for the team and they wanted the best OC so they pick joe brady who just won a national championships and got his QB to a heismen trophy

  46. Acamp91x on March 11, 2020 at 10:22 pm

    Stephen A. Stop it.. He deserves it.

  47. Mike McWilliams on March 11, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    I think they mentioned Cam in this clip.

  48. Isaiah Adrian on March 11, 2020 at 10:25 pm

    No wonder ESPN had become a meme and completely unrespected… Completely went off topic and totally unrelated BS and it’s even worse because obviously Brady was the best candidate. 🤦‍♂️

  49. Lorenzo Dawkins on March 11, 2020 at 10:27 pm

    Newsflash: joe Brady didn’t call every play Max 🙄 foundation has been set now LSU just has to plug and play and develop.

  50. Jake Fulton on March 11, 2020 at 10:27 pm

    CMC is probably the only white running back in the NFL out of about 80 total (2-3 per team) probably.. SAS don’t care about that equality
