(all quotes are paraphrased)
Cam Newton (talking at the Underarmor Game):
"Respect this (points to a football) and the rest will come."
Jon Beason(pre-draft interview):
"Honestly I don't care if we draft a kicker, so long as we get somebody who is willing to come in and give everything he's got everyday to help us win."
"I just love playing football."
"I play as hard as I can every game and every play."
Go back and look at some of the other guys. The safety from the Ravens, Tolbert, etc. They all just love playing football. Ron Rivera is building a team that is full of high motor, dedicated men, and it all starts with Cam Newton.
Why did they pick Silatolu over Glenn Cordy?
Weakness for Cordy -
He could stand to lose some weight
He's soft, and that has no place on the new Panthers RR is building.
You may not like some of our picks, and I'm sure not all of them will work out, but be happy about the type of men that are coming here. Give RR a few years, and we're going to have a squad of ultimate badasses.
