Bench his ass....Nothing sends a better "you're not above the team" message


Bench him for what?? have the tv camera in his face at every turn. Remember it's those in the media who dispise Cam who is making all this ish up and reading their usual, Cam is arrogant and needs to be taught a less BS into everything he does. Remember their ONLY proof of the media has of Cam's so called arrogance is his entertainer/Icon misquote that they took and made so much out of. So far, this kid hasn't done a darn thing to warrant the treatment he has been receiving from so many ego driven A-holes in our media.

It's more like they are the ones who are spinning any little thing about him into something negative to help push that 2nd year slump story they have created already about him.

GET THE PICTURE.

Tell you guys what, if you don't want Cam Newton, how about a trade for Josh Freeman,
straight up ?
We could have and should have beat the Cowboys, and Freeman stunk up the place, even missing hand offs to our Running Back Doug Martin.

He hits our tight end with a man on top of him, yet had daylight to run for the first down. Then he guns the ball on an unsuspecting running back, and causes an jump ball interception.

He telegraphs his throws, and holds the ball too long. He sucks, so let's trade for Cam Newton ?

Leave it to a Bucs fan to cheer us up ;)

And only the retards are dogging Cam around here, the rest of us just don't feel like wading into the idiocy.

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.


I didn't say it was a desirable quality, but benching someone because they're showing some emotion is ridiculous. He didn't break down and cry, he didn't cease to function. His facial expressions are being blown way out of proportion.

how would i handle him? leave him in there and make him go through the maturation he's going to have to go through if he ever wants to reach his full potential. don't ask him to alter his play any, keep everything the exact same.... so really i would do nothing different with him

I know the media is milking the whole "Cam is selfish/arrogant" story. That's how it goes with those clowns. I'm not really bothered with that...

What I'm saying is, Cam needs some tough love. Cam is the greatest player this organization has ever seen, but he needs to learn a thing or two about leadership. I'm as big a fan of Cam as anyone, but there is a reason Smitty went off on him, there is a reason Gross and Kalil spoke to him. Bench him for a game and see how he handles that. It's about sending a message. This is about the team...not a single individual. I don't know a single competitor that enjoys losing, so the whole "that's, because Cam hates to lose" argument makes no sense to me.

All the great ones took it on the chin their 1st few years, and they learned and grew from that experience. Again, I'm sure no one on that team like losing, but guess what...they are professionals. They get paid to do this, just like we get paid at our jobs. You still have a job to do.

I would start Derek Anderson, and tell Cam if he wants to sit on the bench pouting with a dishtowel draped over his head, he can do it for 3.5 hours, holding a clipboard and sitting next to Pickles.

For the last time (NOT!), it isn't the towel alone. It isn't that Cam hates defeat. It is the way he presents himself to his team, coaches, fans (except homers), and media. He comes off like a cry baby. He detaches himself from the task at hand: overcoming adversity. His behavior has negatively affected his own performance, and that of others. Cam has himself admitted it's a problem. His teammates have said it is a problem. Aside from the presser, the cameras caught him on the bench acting all pouty IGNORING his QB coach Shula, who was trying to show him photos and trying to get his head back in the game. There was absolutely ZERO excuse for that. In some respects, that was far more embarrassing than the final score itself. If you didn't catch it, find someone who has NFL Rewind and watch it.
