Carolina coach Ron Rivera, who is coaching against Newton in Sunday's Pro Bowl, said earlier this year that the 2012 Pro Bowl week wasn't a good experience for Newton. From what he's seen so far, this one has been much better.
"Very much so,'' Rivera said by phone. "From what I understand he is very more sure of himself. He went [the first time] as a rookie sensation. I think there were some people that didn't appreciate that. He got a lot of attention, and he gets a lot of attention around here.
Does anybody else still get annoyed about that pro-bowl? ^^ I really think Rivera hit it on the head. Then you got Prisco and his cowardly "unnamed" sources
