Everyone has their 'welcome to the NFL' moment.
Carolina Panthers' offensive guard Amini Silatolu entered the NFL facing one of the largest competition jumps of an early round pick. The team loved his aggressiveness, and ability to block down field -- two things he displayed in his first season. There were also a healthy share of struggles, and opportunities to learn from those first-year mistakes.
When it came to being an example of a future hall of famer's success, Amini wasn't too pleased with his 15 minutes.
Made Urlachers highlights on nfl network ... fak— Amini Silatolu (@AminiSilatolu) March 22, 2013
He took it in stride, and good humor. If you play on an offensive line in the NFL there's a good chance someone of Brian Urlacher's caliber is going to make you look like a fool sooner or later -- he's one of the best for a reason. That being said, there are about a million reasons to love this tweet.
Almost as many as this one.

Here's to an excellent year two for Silatolu, hopefully with less defensive highlights.
