Newton: Being a Back-up to Brees and Rodgers a 'Blessing'.

For a guy that has plenty of reason to feel like he belongs at the NFL Pro Bowl ,Panthers rookie QB Cam Newton instead keeps it humble:

Cam is actually the third string quarterback on the NFC squad, but you won’t hear any complaints from Cam: "I’m watching and learning. What better way to learn than firsthand? I don’t really don’t mind, especially to these two MVP candidates. I’ll be second string to that, man," he said.

So he drinks water at a rap party and now gives appropriate props to the veteran Pro Bowlers. Newton is human and will make a mistake off the field at some point, at least a minor one. It might take a few years though because I really think this kid is genuine. This is not some persona he puts on for the field and the camera. At least that what it apeears like to me...but then again I have been accused on not having a grip on reality...;)

Oh, and I can't forget that Newton never fails to tow the company rope:

"The Carolina Panthers, coach Rivera, Marty Hurney and Jerry Richardson, they have everybody’s interest at heart and they’re going to do what’s the best for this team," Newton said. "That’s something I do know and I can attest to. This team, this organization is going in the right direction to be an elite playoff team and contender year in and year out."

Okay now that sounds scripted but it's still sweet music to my ears....
