Jordan Gross On Cam Newton and the QB:
"you know I had him over the house last monday (or wednesday), and I told him that I had a lot of preconceived notions about you. I said, You just assume that if a guy is the #1 pick, wins the heisman, has advertisements and endorsement deals... that he's gonna have a sense of arrogance to him. I told him this to his face, because thats kinda what I thought. I wasnt sure about the draft pick. I liked it because of the potential, but I didnt know what kind of guy we were getting. He's really won me over. That qb position has been for the last few years ....stammers... (Jay: Less than desirable) Yeah, Im a Matt Moore fan. I thought he had talent there.... I think Jimmy did ok last year...(Jay Weezie: no you didnt) but definitely we have room to work. Im hopeful that Cam can come in here and do that. He's showed up in great shape... which says alot because you cant buy getting in shape. You can only do that by working. He's throwing balls... anything we asked him to do, he's done it. We had him out there flipping tires and hitting tires with sledge hammers... tough stuff that a primadonna. He came in a kept his mouth quiet and had fun with the guys and worked hard with the guys. He just did everything you would want him to do... and I dont think thats something you can groom or act out. I even had him out on Lake Wiley on the boat, and pulled him behind the boat with the O-line guys, so he's really fitting in well."
