I'd tell him its ok for him to get tattoos and piercings if he wants to.

so it's still defense and special teams fault the offense can't execute consistently? that was last year's excuse, we should try to make another one up.

I would bring Cecil in as an assistant to the OC. One thing we know about CAM is that he holds his father in high regards.

Can't say for sure because I don't know the details of how he handles himself in the club house and locker room. Nor in the huddle for that matter.

All we see is what the cameras show us, and while it may not be what we want to see, well whatever.

I don't get all into this sitting by himself, towel over the head stuff. Don't understand it, but don't really care either.

Some of the stuff that Cam does is the same stuff that Jay Cutler does and has done since he came into the league. Jay like Cam has been criticized from day 1 about it too. Cam needs to understand that he is constantly under the microscope on the sidelines, and needs to act accordingly.

Just to note...he's pretty direct and to the point in the huddle. He stretches outside it more of the time, gets the play...goes in calls it, clap clap clap clap clap snap

lol bench him for showing his emotion..smfh.

If I were a coach, a grown man of 40+ years and I had to help a 23 year old kid learn to mature, I'd take the active step and call him over to go over strategy or stand beside me and point out things that's going on in the game. Obviously Rivera can't do that, he's busy coaching the game. Chud can't, he's upstairs calling the plays. Who's next? In most cases, it should be DA and/or the QB coach.

And this is basically what Smitty did, except in a Smitty way...

Hate to break it to you, but not all emotions should be shown. That is what makes someone a leader or not. Not wearing your heart on your tear stained sleave when the chips are down.

There are different types of leaders, I don't like the moping kind, I prefer some fire.

Manning 1 and Brady are leaders because of their work ethic first in last out type thing, and also get up in their teammates asses every now and again.

Manning 2 is cool and collected and does not seem to get rattled.

Rivers' teammates will walk through fire for him as they know he hates to lose and you can tell it on the sidelines, and he never throws them under the bus.

Everybody is different, Cam will mature and will be a good leader, he just has to find his way.

No, not at all, just making an observation.

Just saying that Cam is not alone in the way that he deals with losing.

I like Manning 1 and Rivers personally, although Peyton will throw others under the bus from time to time.

It's hard to say what Cam responds to.

I wonder why we've regressed to a completely college offense this year. I thought with a full off season in the film room Cam would be better at reading defenses, calling audibles etc.

This decision to go with the read option as the base of our O is making me wonder if Cam is struggling with the learning curve. Or Maybe Chud is just a dumbass. Who knows.

I personally think Cam would do fine running a pro offense, but he's not been given the chance.

I'd say:

I feel your pain Cam. The defense can't tackle a pillow. The OC is trying to force your hand by limiting your playmaking skills. Marty Hurney has built a one-deep roster. There is no Panther home field advantage. I feel your pain.

This was posted on a Tampa Bucs Blog.

Remember, for Cam they used the Auburn playbook last season, same thing the Redskins are doing with RG3 and the Baylor playbook, they are giving these young QBs the comfort zone of working within a system they know, and as we have seen so far with Cam this season, once the teama start breaking that comfort zone with their own playbooks you will see some regression. Damn, sounds very familiar, new systems, regression, hmmmm.

IF this is true, then shame on Rivera for messing Cam all up.

I feel like all this talk about Cam is being over dramatized within our own fan base... I think we're worrying about nothing kind of
