A lot has been made about why Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton did not dive down and to try to recover his fumble late in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl 50, but nobody has had a hotter take than Seattle Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark.

The rookie took to Twitter after the game to give his perspective on the play. As you'll see, he didn't hold back.

Newton's fumble essentially sealed the 24-10 win for the Denver Broncos, giving them great field position while holding a 16-10 lead. Less than a minute later, the Broncos put the game away by scoring a touchdown and tacking on a two-point conversion to take a 14-point lead with just over three minutes to play.

Now, the NFL's 2015 MVP is catching a lot of heat for it.

Clark and the Seahawks went 0-2 against the Panthers this season, including a 31-24 loss in the divisional round. While the first-year player out of Michigan realizes Newton is as talented as they get, Clark does question the quarterback's toughness.

That video would've been enough to catch your attention by itself. However, Clark continued his take with a few additional tweets.

Clark will get his wish and face Newton again next season, as the Panthers are scheduled to visit Seattle in 2016.
