Things bubbling beneath the surface in Panthertown

While I was glad to see the improvement in the Panther's offensive performance on Sunday (and a marginally better defensive effort), I couldn't help feeling like there are a few things bubbling...

Saints defender after Favre injury: "Pay me my money!"

Apparently, the NFL has this statement (and some others) on tape. Saints are in mega-trouble.

Is Dontari Poe in the Panthers' Future?

24

Memphis DT Dontari Poe put on a show at the Combine. Weighing in at a whopping 346 lbs., Poe proceeded to put up 44 reps at 225 pounds, and ran an astonishing 4.87 in the 40. That is about three tenths of a second slower than Cam Newton--who weighed about 100 lbs. less than Poe at last year's Combine. They're saying the college film doesn't show much on Poe, but this guy is showing preternatural size and speed. What do you think? If he's available at 9, should we try to get him? Why or why not?

Rivera not buying comparisons between Newton and RG3

Good for Coach Rivera; I'm not buying the comparisons either.

RG3 talks about Cam

12

RG3 weighed in on Cam, highlights below: "As a runner, he is a little more shifty than I am, but I'm faster than he is. More experienced in the passing game in college -- not that I'm more polished and he's not polished, just we threw it a little bit more at Baylor than they did at Auburn. Griffin continues: "Other than that, confidence-wise his confidence is off the charts. I try to keep my confidence on the charts. But I'm a confident guy as well. You've got to be that way. If you don't think you're the best you don't perform that way." My thoughts: As far as I'm concerned, Griffin needs to be thankful that Cam had an exceptional rookie season--Griffin wouldn't be getting nearly as much interest otherwise. The reason this bugs me is because I see Cam, Dalton, Luck, and veteran QBs giving other players credit. They frequently say, "such-and-such guy is a great player, very talented, etc." and then go on from there. They certainly don't badmouth each other publicly. Seems to me RG3 would be better served by following suit. Don't really see the purpose of tossing around little digs at Cam.

Ron Rivera wants Cam Newton to take on leadership role

8

Rivera's giving Cam the okay to kick butt in the locker room. That's my take on it anyway. Here's an excerpt: "I think the one thing is his leadership, just keep developing that," Rivera said. "We always talked about how respectful he was to the veteran guys. He didn't want to step on people's toes or get in people's way." Rivera said Newton won't have to worry about that next season. "I told him you'll be the veteran," Rivera said.

Ron Rivera is running out of patience

Coach Rivera is putting the players on notice--show some improvement, or he'll be looking for your replacement.

Cam Has a Winning Attitude

My favorite thing about Cam Newton is that he keeps a winning attitude, even in the midst of a Panther loss. Take, for example, this little nugget of wisdom he shared in Chicago. From the Charlotte...
