Cam Newton and Colin Kaepernick’s Faceoff is Fodder for Funny Memes (LOOK!)

cam newton & colin kaepernick-faceoff

*Ok Cam Newton and Colin Kaepernck, what the heyall is going with you two seemingly giving each other the side eye.

This now very viral photo is the cause of mucho conversation and speculation on social media as it purports to show a rather intense encounter between the Carolina Panthers and San Francisco 49ers QBs. After all, they say a picture is worth a thousand words. The problem is, we don’t really know what they are saying.

Oh, by the way, if you’re wondering, the stare down went down on Sunday after the Panthers thrashed the 49ers 46-27.

Several photos appear to show a frosty moment between Newton, the reigning NFL MVP, and Kaepernick, the backup QB who’s turned the sports world upside down with his protest of the American flag and national anthem.

Monday night, Jason Whitlock, co-host of Fox Sports1’s “Speak for Yourself’ interpreted what he saw as Newton and Kaepernick feuding about something

Whitlock’s guest, Shannon Sharpe of FS1”s”Undisputed” basically said, yeah, maybe.

After all, it wasn’t that long ago that Kaepernick was seen as the QB of the future; not Newton. While Kaepernick has risked his career protesting social injustice, Newton has steered clear of racial politics.

“Before Russell Wilson and Cam went to the Super Bowl, (Kaepernick) took his team to the Super Bowl,” Sharpe noted. “He was kind of that shiny new toy: African-American quarterback, he had tattoos, everybody embraced him. This was the new fad. This was the guy who was going to revolutionize the game because of the zone-read.”

The bottom line is that no one knows what was said between the two players, and pictures can be misleading.

Their visit could have been completely friendly.

But, as we said, social media is buzzing bigtime over the incident and having big fun with what might have gone down between the two QBs. Check out these memes:

OK, let’s see what Whitlock and Sharpe have to say about the snap. Keep in mind, Whitlock is squarely in Cam’s corner and Sharpe is riding with Kap.
