Yes, "benched" is being used loosely, but all of our other starters were still in there IIRC. I thought I remembered seeing DWill and I know Rivera said Smitty didn't want to come out.

But, Rivera did not say they tried to take him out either. He said "we needed him out there" or "we still wanted him out there... to set an example."

So, if that is the case, then Cam was benched, and I don't think it was for performance obviously, I wanted us to take him out after he got up limping from that jailbreak sack. But, I do think it had something to do with him pouting as well.

I was disappointed seeing Cam on the sidelines at the end of the game instead of being out there with his team taking the ass whoopin' like a man.

Havent you figured it out? He is exactly what many said he was coming out of College, all this kid cares about is playing Superman and being in the spotlight. He isn't a leader, when times get tough he is going to run and put his towel on his head and close his eyes in the Presser

Cam is and has always been a work-in-progress when drafted. He had immaturity surrounding him when he came out of Auburn and I think he has exceeded expectations in this department in keeping his nose clean and not being outspoken or a media lightning rod... very low-key. As for on the field, he also has exceeded expectations with talent and not just being an athletic run-first QB that can't read defenses nor pass. All of that being said, his maturity as a team leader is his glaring weakness.... but he's a 23 year old kid that has done nothing but win since he was in high school. Losing and humility isn't always the easiest thing to accept and takes time to adjust. However, the time of maturation needs to start catching up to Cam or he's going to drown in this grown man's league. The towel on the sideline, pouting, woe-is-me negative energy that he possesses needs to be cut fast. Guys like Smitty, Beason, Gross, DA, Rivera, Chud, etc need to be in Cam's face and positively, yet directly get him in gear.

I have no issue whatsoever with what Smitty did. He's a warrior and has the heart of a champion. Not too many players on this team can get through to Cam properly, but Smith is one of them. I commend him and truly am ready to see how Cam bounces back next week. He'll have an extra 3 days to study what went wrong and a big divisional test against the Falcons. Time for Cam to put on his big boy pants and realize that when you play like complete garbage in primetime at home, you need to shelf the Superman TD celebration and just walk your ass to the sideline.

Josh Norman needed to be benched... he was so bad I started to miss Munnerlyn.

HUGE PROPS TO STEVE SMITH... This is Jay Cutlers problem... The bears dont have a dog like Steve Smith.... It took a backup CB to speak up.

You guys can love Cam all yall want... He has a special talent but dude will never develop into the QB you guys want him to be if he doesnt grow up and be a professional.
