i think we will find out early in the first third down whether they have somebody spy me like other quarterbacks. >> reporter: aaron matas joins us and despite what peyton said i am guessing cam will be the only one we see run. >> he will run. he will throw, and cam newton will celebrate. newton often crit icized for his on the field dancing but there is a simple way to keep him from busting a move. >> turn his mic off. >> what some see as just having fun, others view as arrogance. >> when they see more of me, i need not, you know, have to explain myself. >> there is one word to describe cam newton's season. >> he has been awesome. he has been awesome. >> but for some reason the likely mvp takes eat for having a good time. -- heat for having a good time. >> dancing, making big plays, i do the same thing. if i was a quarterback i would

cam was the one and only player picked before him in 2011. von says he is his second favorite guy. 18 is number 1, as he is with us and all bronco fans. we have much more coming up at 7:00 to 8:00, broncos tonight special edition, we will see you then. drew, back to you. >> thanks, rod. i am joy watching him play. obviously don't want him to have too much fun sunday but i think newtson great for the game. his celebrations and his fun and joy seem a little forced to me, unlike magic johnson who was pure natural happiness, i don't understand that comparison but he is good for the game, for sure. >> you wonder if you are watching a brand. >> yes, that is what i am trying to say. >> but it is a nice brand. >> you bet. why not? >> fun to see manning dancing in the end zone. >> yeah, right.
