Peter King: Torrey Smith Should Teach Cam Newton Life Lessons 101

King knew exactly what is he doing, he knows who his audience is. If he wanted to chastise Newton's behavior he could've did so without using Torrey Smith's deceased brother to do so. That is disgusting and shows you the fake soapbox his type is willing to stand on.

Agree 110% with this statement.

I said in another thread that fans have nice things to say about King when they meet him in public, and he does appear to be a humble, nice man.

The fact is that King is no different than Florio, Prisco, Gregg Doyel, etc. He is a paid sh*t stirrer.

The only difference is King does an excellent job of disguising his troll tendencies.

His comment is something I would expect to read on a Falcons message board, not from the national NFL writer of the year.

I think Peter is saying Cam doesn't need to say the team is an embarrassment and act like a child because we got blown out in Week 3 by the defending Super Bowl Champs.

I would have lost respect for Cam if he didn't say the team was an embarrassment. They should have been ashamed of themselves, from the coaches down to the water boy.

Vince Wilfork today talked to the press about the NE D hanging the offense out to dry. I want to see our defensive leaders like Beason come out and take responsibility for their actions. We put too much pressure on the O to go down and score everytime and that creates mistakes. Get some stops early in the game and give the O a chance to get in rhythm and figure out the opposing D.

what the hell does Torrey Smith have to do with Cam Newton, christ the media have no sense of reservation - using a young man's death to make a point against a player you don't like is not only immature, it's kind of disgusting

what's sad is if Smith hadn't had that monster game last night, I wonder what the same pundits would be saying about him?

The two situations had zero in common.

What's it going to take? for Cam to lose a family member to be a leader?

Totally disrespectful to Torrey Smith.

Between the media and our resident ass clowns here, there is plenty hate flowing.

I think what King was getting at(but stated poorly)was that Cam should stop loosing perspective after every loss. He didnt just loose the Super Bowl and his attitude should portray that he had learned from the mistakes of the game(not conveyed with his Giants didnt do anything comment)and that there are still opportunities ahead(he looked like he was about ready to declare the season over).

Yes actually they are.

They have already established their mental toughness and maturity.

As much as I love what he can do for the franchise Cam has yet to prove either and putting an end to the pouting would be a great first step.

No actually they're not... in fact an established, fully matured leader should know better so it's an even bigger offense, right?

So first Cam didn't want to be great and had a selfish me-first attitude. Now we knock him when we see him "sulking" because he wants to be great and doesn't want to let his teammates/fans down... so which is it guys?

I don't think he was pouting about letting his teammates/fans down.

At the end of the game it was obvious he didn't want to shake Eli's hand.

Neither one of us can know for sure what he was thinking, but based on everything I've seen and heard from him dating back to the eve of his first start, he has been most concerned about letting his teammates down and he talked in his presser about how he would feel ashamed if he was a Panthers fan.

A person with a "me-first" attitude can't empathize like that.

Can a person with a "me-first" attitude empathize with the notion that "they didn't beat us, we beat ourselves"??????

And yes, I was extremely embarrassed going into the office on Friday morning.

EDIT:

If he hadn't done that foolish TD celebration when the game was basically over and just went to the presser and apologized and said: "hey, we got beat by a better team" none of this BS would be going on right now.

I can even deal with the sulking on the sideline if he would have just shown some integrity. Fact is Cam was perfect in displaying poor sportsmanship and immature behavior.
