Panthers fire back at Rick Reilly for Cam Newton dig


ESPN's Monday night appendage, Rick Reilly, tried to make some more exclusive news from his Twitter account this week.

"Cam Newton is really quick, until it's time to get dressed," Reilly wrote. "Took him 54 minutes last night. Then did media. Team waited on bus for 40 mins."

The tweet sounded like a grumpy media member upset that he had to stay up too late. No one seemed to notice Reily's missive. Well, except the Carolina Panthers. This response is from a Panthers PR staffer.

Newton said this week that he has a rare skill set. That's true. He also has a rare ability to attract criticism, even when it's not warranted.
