Some of you guys won't critisize cam as long as he's here

I'll criticize Cam over something valid, not a .5 second clip of him walking past his coach as he comes off the field because he's frustrated... that kind of stuff happens ALL the time.

How about Brady screaming at his coach after he threw a pick? Would you rather see Cam go cool off and then talk to his coach, or scream at him in the heat of the moment? Which is more mature behavior since we're discussing maturity?

With all the attention on how Cam behaves and his post game comments, does anyone remember that Peyton Manning was this way for years? He eventually matured out of it. I think Cam wll learn how to act on the sidelines with a bit more grace, but you don't ever want him to stop getting pissed at mistakes. I want my franchise QB to need, desire, and be unsatisfied with anything less than perfection.

Ok...big Who Dat Homer fan here...but not to talk crap really...I just wanted to comment on Cam real quick. I was one of the guys who was really scared of what this guy could do and was praying our guys didnt over look him. Beginning of the game I was seriously worried BUT THEN...defense tighten up a little and stole a touchdown from him and then you could see it happening...he gets frustrated and isolates himself on the sideline and hides his head and the look on his face just tells the story...it almost looks like he doesnt want to play anymore. When the Saints get behind in scores...you see Brees on the sideline like a machine looking at pictures, talking to coaches, pumping up players telling them "we got this"...I dont see ANY of that coming from Cam and I felt horrible when he was on the field coming out the huddle and the camera was on his face...OMG, I turned to my buddy and said, he no longer wants to be in the game...his face told the story he was so frustrated.

I know he is a rook, and I hope he can grow out of this to become a real leader...your entire team looks up to and feeds off the quarterback; and if your quarterback looks and feels invincible the entire offense will feed off that...this dude can be scary and him getting flustered quick is really his only downfall...he is gonna be a beast.

Hey sulking is fine, but you have to draw the line somewhere. Ignoring the people that's integral to your success and trying to help you get better is something that's taught in high school.

So you're saying that everytime Coach Shula approached him that Cam avoided him?

All game long?

If not, then what's your point?

(P.S. I'm pretty sure I saw them all sitting and looking at play shots a couple of times during the game. Maybe you missed it.)

yep, not used to losing season and playing not so good in the last game of that season. I'd be pissed too. But I do hate the pouting.

honestly, the lip annoys me. Always has, hell I'm doing that on my couch, but I'm not him. I don't see it as a hindrance to his(our) success going forward though. A lot of guys react differently, its only a big deal because we aren't winning. If we are perennial contenders then it would matter, because guys like Brady, Peyton, MJ, Kobe do (did) it all the time.

So he's isolated when he's talking to a coach?

He loves the game and sometimes he lets emotions get the better of him. But I've seen him take vicious hits and gets up smiling and laughing because he loves the game so much. He's no where near the lower character level end of Vince Young. Why you think that, I have no idea. Cam Newton is poised for greatness and has worked very hard to achieve the success that he has.

I can tell you EXACTLY why crescentcity feels that way...

I can't start a thread so I thought I would post my message on a few different threads. Enjoy!

Dear Panther Fan, your athletic, fast, amazing, loudmouth, thug of a wide receiver does need an attitude adjustment. This guy turns on his own team mates for crying out loud. No matter how good this guy is, he would have no place on Sean Payton's team. I starting reading this forum during the game and was sick of reading how dirty our team is. Just because Harper hit him late in the end zone last meeting you think our team is dirty. He did this because your loudmouth wr chopped somebody earlier in the game. I can honestly say there is not a classier team in the nfl. Laugh at that statement all you want, but there is not one of you Panther fans would love to have our players, coach and our brilliant minds in the front office. Just admit it. I read things like, "Saints suck" or " they will lose in the first round" or " their defense sucks". Well, 13-3 is pretty damn good and I would take that every year. You guys certainly would. This Saints team is here to stay ladies, so you better get used to it. What kind of scumbag would talk shiz to a head coach. The Falcons made fools of themselves last week on mnf whining about how we ran up the score. You should be thanking us or the Panthers would be the team linked to Brees history. Well, you guys go out and make fools of yourselves too. Talking shiz, acting like you scored a td when you just completed a 7 yd pass for 1st down. Hilarious!! Well crybabies, enjoy the offseason while we win our second Lombardi. And to all of you who think we won't, just watch. We have geniuses playing and coaching the Saints so just sit back and enjoy the Lombardi is in the nfl south.

Seriously, thou...why does this thread feel like a direct desire to continue comparing Cam to failed QBs like VY and Jamarcus despite the, we aren't judging him because he's black attitude...

The damn kid can't even sit on the side-line with a towel over his head. I mean REALLY???

I sit and see QBs do all kinds of things and have all kinds of attitude but this QB is being watched and scrutinized like a dam run away slave...What gives with that attitude?

How does a thread about Cam possibility ignoring a coach have anything to do with Young and Russell? Amazing you are the only one to see see racism in every negative thing said about Cam
