Army Leadership/Cam Newton Maturation Parallel? You bet

Cam reminds me of young hard charging Lance Corporals, on the fringe of becoming an NCO but still too immature to handle being in charge.

So, what you're saying is that young 2LT Cam Newton writes the gameplans for opponents via Op Orders? Man, this whole time I thought the coaches were a little incompetent. Cam rarely issues Fragos on the line of scrimmage - he must be really confident with his Op Orders.

A game vs. combat. A sack vs. an IED. "My husband can't throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time" vs. writing a letter to your subordinate's widow.

Atleast its obvious that you really are commissioned.

/weeps for anyone under your command

either you misunderstand or i wasnt clear enough. i was going to focus on the failures of the coaches and the game plans and how it affects those underneath them.

I never said it was the same. i said there were parallels used in an effort to explain. guess you missed the part about personal attacks.

I think he was talking about leadership you're taking the comparison pretty far past what i understood it to be.

thank you. this guy obviously missed the point. that's ok. common sense isnt always common.

Actually, that's why I did it. ;)

Steve had people like Delhomme, Kasay, and Sam Mills to help him.

I think it's up to the veterans, regardless of whether they are announced "leaders", to get in Cam's face when he becomes a child who just had his favorite toy taken from him.

As a military vet myself, I don't really care much for comparing sporting events to "war" and the athletes as "soldiers"... at the end of the day, athletes shake hands and go home, soldiers do not.
