Here's What Ron Rivera Said About Facing His Former QB Cam Newton This Week


Colin Cowherd: “Now you got Cam coming up, and the advantage is you’ve watched a lot of Cam footage in practice and you do know his tendencies. Do you feel like as a coach, ‘I know what Cam does and I know what I can do against him’, do you feel like that’s an edge for you?”

Ron Rivera: “I know the last year and a half he spent a lot of time in the New England system, I know it’s going to be a little bit different. I know looking at Carolina, they do some things different. So, really it’s going to be how he handles his situation with what they do. I am looking forward to it. I’m a big fan, I’ve always been a big fan of his because he’s always been the right type of guy, I’ve always believed that, for what we tried to do back then. I really do believe it will be interesting. I’m happy for him, happy he’s got his opportunity again because he went home to Carolina where he started his career.” (Full Segment Above)

Listen to Washington Football Team head coach Ron Rivera join The Herd with Colin Cowherd to discuss what it’s going to be like to face his former quarterback, Cam Newton, as it will mark the first time the two will square off with each other since their decade-long run of success with the Panthers.

Newton and Rivera came into the league the same year in 2011 with the Panthers, and left the same year in 2019 as well, after going 76-63 in 9 seasons, including an NFC Championship in 2015 when Newton won the league’s Most Valuable Player Award and when Rivera won Coach of the Year for the second time.
