Why? What proof did u have that he didn't have good work eithics and his attitude wasn't good outside of the stigmatic attachment to other black QBs he was continually grouped with for no reason other than the superficial?


So not only does he have one good work ethic, but now he has multiple?

This kid really is something special.

yeah, people are just now seeing the things that got me on his bandwagon. sure, the flashiness impressed me as well as him just flat out being talented and athletic, but it was the intangibles that really sold me on him.

i went looking for discussions on his skills as a leader, wanting to find out what people who worked with him and really investigated this kid rather than just throwing out blanket "the dude's a fake" and pointing to his very publicized mistakes. i was fully impressed by what i saw. there was more than i was expecting from any player (kid) coming out of college. if i can find the stuff, i may repost it.it's old and very played out arguments that people are starting to move away from. not worth bringing it up. i will say i fully understand why people felt the way they did and very little of it had anything to do with race. the kid made a lot of mistakes early on and there was plenty of controversy surrounding him. with so much press pointing to him being a problem off the field (granted it was all pretty ill informed) it's easy for people to believe that he might have a lot of issues coming in.

best to move on from that discussion.


I agree with a lot of the stuff u said but to try and pretend that race was being played with Cam is untrue. Cam was so race-baited it wasn't funny anymore...From instantly comparison him to every failed black QB, to labeling him as unintelligent with no proof, to saying how athletic he is BUT..., to accusing him of bad work ethics, again without proof, and using it all as grounds to be leary of him screams of racial stereotyping...I honestly felt the media race-baited Ryan Mallett also.

And I too will leave it at that.:)

He reportedly cheated multiple times, which many people used to say he had a bad work ethic. He was also compared to successful QBs like Vick, Freeman, and Big Ben.
