Frank asks about the #2 Jersey.

Cam said with the lockout he isn't sure how it will all work out. Says he doesn't HAVE to have it. But #2 relates to him being the second born son.

Asked about his number next year and he laughed. Said he hasn't been putting that much effort to it, and understands the media has to sell something. Said he doesn't have to wear number 2 but he has a reason behind it, his mother calls his two brothers and himself by their numbers and he is the number 2 son. He'd like to have it but its not the end of the world if he doesn't get it.

Interview was over and then Cam asked Moose what can be the difference between a team that goes to the Super Bowl like the Panthers in 03 and a team that went 2-14. Moose says everyone has to accept their roles and want to be the best they can be.

Really ? There are team workouts going on ? Do tell where?

Clausen tweeted this:

Big throwing session in the am w/ @OfficialClowney @Money_G & more

He must be organizing something or this is the answer to a jeopary question:

Name 3 players that WON'T be starting for the Panthers come opening day.

Cam asks Moose about the 2003 Panther's Superbowl run. Asks him:

As a player coming into this league, what differentiates a 2-14 team, versus a Superbowl team?

Moose: Every person on that team has to sacrifice what they want for what is needed. Everyone has to buy into what the team is doing. Says Cam will have to be a strong leader of the team.

That's the interview folks.

listening now...

right now it's all on him to prepare.

asked about what they did to help him with the playbook. said he got a watered down version before the workout that he had to know before hand. spent about 48 hours learning it. forgot some of it in the meantime but came right back to him after he got the real thing last week.

asked about wether he was willing to put in the work he put into learning blinn's and auburn's playbook. he said absolutely and the only thing he needs is time to learn it and he's got plenty of it.

talked about the thing that pissed him off about all the negative attention was seeing his moms face when she heard it. she remembered listening to moose campaign for newton and shared it with newton.

talked about smith. intrigued by the standard he set for himself. lots of respect for him. likes the character and level of dedication he's seen from smith and kalil and other players he's met.

already developing solid relationship with kalil. texting everyday and joking around. great thing to know. kalil's bucking for newton to send the Oline to mexico.

asked what kind of work habits he is coming with and if hispayday is going to ater what he does. newton said a money brings out what a person was before he had the money. said he knows that there is not a team that is consistently good without a good QB and is taking that on his shoulder. wants to consistently work hard and be consistently good. doesn't want to be considered a one hit wonder. kept emphasizing how much he wants to be great and keeps looking at people who have achieved greatness. said muhammad ali is one of the guys that he looks to. not just QBs he's looking at. he is looking at what makes anyone great.

said the secret to getting where he has at this point is having a solid foundation. talked about how fans talked about how fun it was to watch him bring his team back from behind and he said his response would be that it's fun to watch but not fun to play because he's having to constantly try and think of what he can say to rally the team.

always asks himself if he can do what QBs like drew brees and josh freeman can do. also trying to be someone that has things that they don't have. become what the good QBs are and be better. wants to be a nightmare for defensive coordinators, no matter what that is or what that entails.

asked about if he gets the starting job and the chip on his shoulder. was really strong in saying that nothing is going to be handed to him and he doesn't want it given to him. he wants the job and respect to be earned just like it should be for anyone. about the chip on his shoulder and said he does have one, but the biggest pressure comes from his desire to be great which has always been with him.

how does he deal with a coach with a high standard who gives lots of criticisms but few praises like moose had with richard williamson. newton said he is because that started at home and it's something he's always had. his parents and many of his coaches have always set the bar high for him and accepted little beneath that bar.

asked about his jersey number. laughed and said he hasn't worried about it. said a number is a number. it's not something he has to have, but he wants #2 because he's the second son and his mom called him that growing up. he'd like it but he doesn't have to have it.

asked moose as a player coming into the league, what is it that will turn a 2-14 team into a winning team. moose said that the key was for everyone to know their role, accept their role, and be the best at their role possible. said that newton's job/challenge is to help those around him do that.

At the end of the interview, Cam asked Moose what differentiates a team that's 2-14 from a team that's playing for the superbowl, and what they can do or change to get their.

Moose said each players has to sacrifice, and make sure they play their role and play it to the best of their ability.

I really love how he asked Moose that.

Thats was a excellent question. You cant hate this guy. I see what everyone says about his personality. Just from that interview you heard him talk sincerly about wanting to earn respect and work hard for it. He wants to win.

Thank you Andrew Luck. Hopefully you can design the room we stack our future Lombardis in.:cam::cam::cam::cam:
