I don't understand why the QB is allowed to sit on the bench and not be part of talking to the other QBs and coaches.

He is PART of the team he isn't THE TEAM.

On JPP, exactly, and BTW that was a player we had th opportunity to draft and didn't.

I don't mean to pile onto Newton, there are plenty of other issues with this team; but, QB is the leader. I saw it last year and thought, ok, he just needs to learn; but, in year 2, that crap in the press conferences and the sidelines to stop.

I manage people. I don't like it; but, I do. The way I act, the way I lead, the way I do things under pressure has a mirror effect on the people around me. Cam has got to get that and understand it. If it doesn't, it's over. Draft someone else.

If we are totally honest with ourselves, who on this board thought Newton could/would lead a comeback?

I would have a problem with Smitty tearing into Cam (he gets upset when he's losing, there's no shame in that) except for the fact that he did his Superman after his touchdown. Like really? You just made it 33-7. Maybe wait till it's a 3 possession game before you start celebrating. That rubbed me the wrong way. I'm glad Smitty gave him a piece of his mind.

I think what youre missing is that Cam and Smitty's on field celebrations dont have anything to do with personal gratification. Theyre trying to pump the team up and get them fired up when they do that. Theyre NOT celebrating (maybe the Cam superman thing was a little). . but they are statements for the team not the individual player.

I realize a lot of you have never been in a leadership position in a sport before . . or played team sports for all that matters, but sometimes there arent any other options that can fix the problem on the spot in the game. You got to get out there make a play and then turn to the sidelines and go "AAARRRGHHHH BAM MUFUGGER! GO ON AND GET IT LIKE THAT BITCHES! CANT HOLD US!" You have to turn to the crowd and say "IT AINT OVER! PUT YOUR HANDS TOGETHER! THIS IS OUR HOUSE!". . . .

Otherwise, the common man will become accepting and complacent with losing or getting beaten. It is an incredibly difficult thing to do and even more difficult when you have a pro football sized ego.

Only coach he could talk to is the position coach.....and he isn't calling the game.

Sure. Because none of the beat writers are reporting this and neither were the sideline reporters for NFL Network .

whatever dude

“I watched D.A. and Jimmy (Clausen), they don’t play in 20-something games last year. And they get up and they observe and learn and get those mental reps,” Smith said, via Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer. “I told him, ‘You can get some mental reps or you can sit on that bench and sulk.’”

Come on man.

The Head Coach is standing on the sidelines. The WR coach, The Special Teams Coach and our sorry ass D-Coordinator.

The other QBs are there.

He needs to be on board with trying to SOLVE the problem not BE the problem.

And IMHO if Rivera does not change that dynamic, and get busy about doing it, this is over.

I don't think we run the option without jstew. Shoulda had a different gameplan. seemed like they were trying to slow down giants and keep eli off the field with our run game. Doesn't work with out stew apparently. Should"ve just been a shootout from the get go. But on the other hand seems like we are always playing from behind. McDeeznuts needs a new system. that or turn it back over to meeks.

Reaching....

So you want Cam talking to McD while McD is calling our D? That seems productive. To our horrible ST coach? About what? Have you seen Rivera talking to anyone? He is a statue.

Chud is who Cam should be talking too.....Chud should be aiding and talking about what is going and what they need to do......but he isolates himself from Cam. Dumb with a rookie.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he handles Newton in his own way, and believes questions about his leadership will be moot when the team starts winning.

I'm sorry, no. Leadership comes when things are at their worst.

I'm nearly certain that pretty much every OC sits up stairs and calls plays....other than that moron Jeff Davidson.

That is the exact reason for having a QB coach. He is an extension of the OC.

Every O play caller isn't upstairs

Davidson didn't even do it both years
