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.
