Its a great read. I almost posted it earlier today.

This quote is awesome.

-----If Rivera has a frustration with Newton it’s that the quarterback has not been a bigger personality. One day, as Newton looked especially frustrated, Rivera pulled the quarterback aside and said, “You can’t be hard on yourself.”

Newton, he says, looked at him and said: “Yes, Coach, but you know why? Because in that huddle are a group of guys that are Pro Bowl players and guys who have been to a Super Bowl. I want to make those guys proud.”------

Btw 'Sir Cameron Newton: Leader of Men, Lover of Puppies...Esquire' and the Rosey Cheeked bobble head in the video, I found it rather annoying. Interesting nonetheless.

Yeah..I agree. Didn't see the need for the writer to be such a ick...

Some folks really can't help themselves.

Good read

I always said you could question certain things about Cam, accuracy,footwork, but the "it" factor and leadership aren't some of them. With some of the top QB picks in the draft you have to question their mental make up and if they have what it takes to deal with the highs and lows that come with being a starter in the league. Not Cam.

Good read.

Cam's a great young man, that came from a great, supportive family. His mom and pops raised him well. Hopefully, he's able to become an ELITE QB for us.
