Kelvin Benjamin is starting to get the due respect that was overlooked during the NFL Draft.  A lot of experts and fans have focused on what he needs to improve on, rather than the amazing amount of talent he already has.  He is an ideal fit for Cam Newton and Bleacher Report has a good column on Benjamin being the top rookie receiver in the league for ’14.

"It makes sense that Newton is so excited to start throwing to the 6’5″ Benjamin, as he’s yet to have a receiver of his stature at his disposal since entering the league; his No. 1 target was previously Steve Smith, who stood at just 5’9″.   -Tyler Horner"

WR has been a hot button this offseason for the Carolina Panthers, and touches on Ricky Proehl’s fingerprint being stamped on this receiving unit…

"“Ultimately, you want great players, but you want great people that love the game and love to compete,” Proehl said. “That’s what traveling does. You understand who they are and what they want to accomplish. Those are things you don’t see from watching film.”  -Ricky Proehl"

“Iron” Mike Ditka made a bold prediction at the Charlotte Touchdown Club, and Panther Nation needs to hear this.  David Newton covers the Panthers for ESPN…

"Ron Rivera will win a Super Bowl with the Carolina Panthers.   Why? Because Mike Ditka says he will. Ditka made the proclamation last Friday at the Charlotte Touchdown Club after being introduced by Rivera, who played and coached for the Hall of Fame coach with the Chicago Bears."

Staying with Riverboat Ron news, Jarrett Bell at USA TODAY Sports speaks to Ron Rivera’s views on coaches and their presence in the locker room….

"The voice boomed from the back of the auditorium, without apology.  It was Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera, who was worked up during a question-and-answer session on Saturday during the NFL’s career development symposium at the Wharton School of Business."

As the Monday sun sets and the Tuesday sun rises, we are one day closer to September 7th.  We are officially 96 days away from doing battle with our Division rival, Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
