89 started screaming and cursing at Cam last night

215 posts in this topic

I love me some Smitty, but all he's managed to do here by not keeping it between himself and Cam is elevate his OWN status and reputation and give the national press all the fuel it needs to continue to trash his quarterback's.

So if that was his goal, mission accomplished.

If his goal was something other than that, then he did it wrong, period, end-of-story.

The haters are having the time of their lives now. I bet Nolan Nawrocki and his ilk are grinning from ear to ear. "See... toldja. Thanks Steve Smith!"

This whole situation is so jacked up... I didn't see this anywhere else and just now found it in the ESPN article. I searched to see if it was already in this thread and didn't see it, so here it is:

http://espn.go.com/n...back-cam-newton

Gross, a longtime teammate of Smith's at Utah and with the Panthers, said he doesn't have a problem with Newton's demeanor. And he didn't think anything needed to be said about Newton outside of the locker room.

"Cam wears his heart on his sleeve and you know how he's feeling based on his actions," Gross said. "He wants to win as much as anybody, and when we don't, he takes it to heart. I would like any of my teammates, if they're upset about things, to talk it out with us in the locker room, and know that we're all in it together."

Smith knows he might take some criticism for calling out Newton, but doesn't care. Smith said he hopes the lesson will pay off for Newton down the road when he's retired and the quarterback is setting NFL records.

"If this is something wrong for saying that, well, I'd rather be wrong and one day during his long career he goes, 'Ah, I hated to hear that, but maybe that's what Smitty was talking about,' " Smith said.

I don't blame Smitty, but Smitty is a different kind of guy. But, I also understand where Gross is coming from. Either way, our locker room is fractured right now.

Smitty made a poor decision running to the media throwing his QB under the bus like that. I have no problem with how he feels or what he said, but airing Cam out like that aint cool.

I would expect nothing less from Smith... he knows his time in the NFL is winding down, and he knows that possibly barring a trade that him getting a SB ring lies squarely with Cam Newton....

I agree with Smith. His window is running down and needs to get things in control.

You're not gonna win a superbowl when you're QB freaks out and starts crying after a pick.

I'm shocked that you would take this position. Shocked.

It doesnt hurt me a bit.

Cam's ego is starting to go out of control.

Its time Smitty put him on a reality check.

Smitty will never win a Super Bowl bc of poor decision on JR part.

Amazing how the kid who was ripped by the media has a camera in his face where every pout or move he makes is recorded and scrutinized. I guess the media is very much hell-bent to continue pushing their mindset that Cam is another VY. I guess we all are in the eyes of some. UNLESS, they say otherwise.

Where's the camera when all these VETS sulk when they don't play well? Oh yes, it's the usual smearing that is always being done by the our media against a QB they don't care for.

YES, CAM IT'S YOUR FAULT THE PANTHERS LOST. EVERYTHING IS ALWAYS YOUR FAULT BECAUSE IT'S SIMPLY EASY TO MAKE YOU THE SCAPE-GOAT CAUSE YOUR NOT A MEDIA DARLING.

He just needs to realize that the camera is always going to be on him like it's always on Brady, manning, Rodgers, etc. Therefore he cant sulk like a baby during times of adversity or his image is going to stay the same.

And you folks seriously wonder why this team will never make it to a play off.

That was very tacky of Steve...Why not simply become the Jets and throw your QB under the bus so the media can rip into him.

How come we never see stuff like this when sulkers like Tom Brady sit by himself?

Steve talk aout Cam's attitude of sulking...His attitude of not thinking before he speaks seems way more damaging.

But we all know the media will simply reward Smithy for giving them ammunination against. Cam. I'm sure he's securing his tv job when he's ready to retire by play their dirty game.

I take it that you don't remember the issues and shitting on that Eli took his first 4 years or so? People and the media basically called him a sissy pussy for the first half of his career. Winning fixes all things when it comes to national perception.

I'm as big a fan of Cam as the next guy, but your constant White Knighting is really tiresome, not to mention glaringly blind to the facts.

Jake Delhomme used to throw temper tantrums all the time in Carolina and was described as "fiery" and "passionate about winning".
