    Cam Newton doesn't care if you think he was moody and sullen after the Super Bowl. And if you were expecting him to apologize for his actions, think again.

    Speaking for the first time since Sunday, Newton didn't apologize, didn't clarify, didn't backtrack on his brief, pouting press conference. Instead, he doubled down on his belief in himself. Here's a roundup of writeups from reporters at the Panthers' exit interviews at Bank of America Stadium:

    Cam Newton making no apologies for postgame press conference. "Show me a good loser and I'll show you a loser."

    Cam Newton: "If I offended anyone, that's cool." But said he would not conform for anyone.

    Cam: I don't have no more tears to cry

    Cam: "I don't have to conform to what anybody wants. I am my own person."

    According to two reports out of Philadelphia, Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy and former NFL back Curtis Brinkley are being investigated after an incident with off-duty police officers.

    CSNPhiily.com, which got a look at the police report, says McCoy and Brinkley were at Recess Lounge at around 2:30 a.m. on Sunday when they got into an altercation with three off-duty officers that began "over the purchase of champagne." Brinkley grabbed the bottle, setting things off between the men.

    A law enforcement official told CSNPhilly.com that two of the officers suffered broken ribs; television station WPVI reported those men had to be hospitalized for their injuries.

    Neither McCoy nor Brinkley were arrested, but both men are being investigated.
