CHARLOTTE - The first time Panthers wide receiver David Gettis reached the end zone as an NFL player, he broke into a Superman pose.
The first time Panthers quarterback Cam Newton reached the end zone as an NFL player – nearly a year later – he broke into a Superman pose.
"It was a joke at first because people noticed it on the team, but I think he did it better, so I can't really complain," Gettis said."All of a sudden when he starts doing it, everybody around the world starts doing it. That's fun to see for me as a fan of the game.
"He's the quarterback. He can do whatever he wants to do. It's his team, and I'm just happy to be a part of it."
Gettis can't wait to be even more a part of it. He had to watch Newton's remarkable rookie season in street clothes, the victim of a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee suffered during training camp.
Gettis recently declared himself "93 percent" back from the injury.
"Right now, I'm just trying to get my full strength back and then just try to get the bulk back in my leg," he said. "It's clearly there, but it's a little off, so I'm still working on strength, just trying to finish out the little parts to make me 100 percent.
"My job right now is to get healthy and not be just the same player but a better player than I was before I got hurt."
