Much of the attention regarding the multiple hits to the head of Panthers quarterback Cam Newton last week has centered on whether the concussion protocol was properly followed. But for Panthers teammate Greg Olsen, the bigger issue is the hypocrisy that four fairly obvious hits to Newton’s head in the second half last week against the Broncos weren’t called, except for the last and most egregious one which was negated by an intentional grounding penalty. “I think any time you talk about player safety, that’s obviously important,” Olsen said, via Bill Voth of Black and Blue Review. “I just don’t think you can talk about player safety and have what unfolded. You can’t talk out of both sides of your mouth.
