Advice: Bill Cosby had some advice for Cam Newton. “Do not make the mistake so many young quarterbacks, regardless of race, color or creed, have made. Study, study, study. Make the supreme commitment, because this is not street football, and millions of people are counting on you,” Cosby added. “Make that word key — commitment. Commitment to your behavior as a human being with others watching and you as a role model … and you will be able to guide and lead. Learn your plays, know everything. Your mind is brilliant, and so is your body.” Another Bill Cosby quip: “A word to the wise ain’t necessary. It’s the stupid ones who need the advice.” [Al.com]
