VIDEO: 49ers’ NaVorro Bowman kills Cam Newton’s Superman Dance



There is no question that San Francisco 49ers ILB NaVorro Bowman had a career season in 2013. From being a tackling machine to capping off Candlestick with one of the greatest plays ever witnessed at the historic site, Bowman was by far the 49ers’ best defensive player. And while his season ended due to a torn ACL/MCL, he did make a huge splash during the 2014 playoffs.

Watch Bowman sack Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton and then do the unthinkable shortly thereafter as he imitates Newton’s “Superman” dance and then follows it up by pounding his fists together as if to say, “Dead!” Watch it here on
