CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - Carolina Panthers' Cam Newton could use some help with his metaphors
The star quarterback used a Titanic reference on Sunday night when explaining that the Panthers still had to meet expectations, despite trading Kelvin Benjamin.
"Yeah we lost a great player but nevertheless, the Titanic still has to go," Newton said.
Many people took to social media overnight, questioning if Newton actually knew what happened to the British passenger liner.

Just face it, Cam Newton didn't cry at the end of Titanic like you did.— Mike Karafa (@1andOnlyBigMike) May 24, 2012
