Panthers rookie wide receiver Jared Green learned quickly that his father is smarter than he is.
He laughs and says, ''There's a small percentage of kids who learn that, but I learned pretty early.''
Of course, not every child has a father who's a Hall of Fame cornerback that played 20 seasons with the Washington Redskins like he does.
Darrell Green, who went to seven Pro Bowls, has tried to install many of the qualities it takes to win in his son.
But the younger Green has to take a much tougher road to make it in the NFL.
Unlike his father, a first-round NFL draft pick in 1983, Jared Green went undrafted out of Southern and faces an uphill climb to the make the Carolina roster.
