In today's presser with Panthers HC Ron Rivera he compared QB Cam Newton to his former teammate RB Walter Payton (via Twitter)
Rivera compared Cam Newton to Walter Payton in terms of attitude & personality towards football.
I can't think of a better compliment Newton has received to date. The best part about this quote to me is the fact no one has the perspective to effectively argue with him. Certainly no other Bears player has coached Cam Newton in his life. The guy has the perspective to make such a comparison. He and Payton were team mates for a number of seasons.
- LB Jason Phillips will remain the starter at WLB
- No injury concerns from the Redskins game..Woot Woot!
- S Jordan Pugh is recovering as expected from a concussion. Sounds like he should be available this Sunday
- LB Omar Gaither is improving. I'm thinking until he's a full practice he'll be sitting this Sunday.
