Isn't dameshek best buds with smitty or something? I always used to see 89 on his shows lol

I wouldnt say he's buds with him but he definitely respects the 89. He's a funny guy. . . witty and resourceful on his shows.

Dameshek is entertaining and informing.

This is my issue.

How can a guy who is as visibly upset as Newton is after losses supposedly have bad work ethic? That is like crying after failing a class you did absolutely nothing in. It just doesn't go with each other.

Which makes it easy for me to know this is not true. Bad attitude for Cam? Maybe, I can see that. Chud helping change Cam's attitude. But work ethic? I have little doubt Newton is one of the hardest working players on the team.

maybe chud should have called out the work ethic of the entire offensive line and running backs too, maybe we'd be in the playoffs

Uhhh, maybe nobody cared about Rob Chudzinski prior to today.

ESPN intern: "Hey Mort, I've got this guy on the phone who says that Rob Chudzinski is a good teacher."

Mort: "Great, put him on hold. I'm sure the producers of NFL32 will find this to be a riveting story that must be on television."

Do you honestly think that the media would sit on a story about Cam's poor work ethic during the beginning of our season?

Cam Newton's work ethic was and has been discussed ad nauseam from pre-draft through today. The guy made a positive comment about Chud having a good influence on Cam, improving his work ethic, and everyone gets all bent out of shape. My point was simply that no one would have cared enough about Rob Chudzinski before today. It's true. When news breaks, reports go looking for stories and quotes and call the people whose numbers they have to look for reactions. Big frickin deal. The guy didn't insult Cam. Get a grip.

From the OP

"Tucker credits outgoing OC Rob Chudzinski with turning Newton around after his work ethic and commitment were spotty at the beginning of the season. "I think he did a fantastic job with Cam Newton last year, and even helping him recover this year," Tucker said of Chudzinski. "I had heard, even in training camp, that Cam Newton was a different guy from a work ethic standpoint. "

I'm not an apologist that thinks Cam can do no wrong, but if you don't think that this isn't a rip on Cam, then I don't think you read it.

The timing of the story is just strange. Cam has work ethic issues that Chud fixed and the media sat on this story until Chud leaves? It just seems weird to me.
