Lol@ the one's who hate the kid, trying to justify this bullshit. As far as this "big city's do this all the time" line, stfu. I live in Jersey, the times, the post and the inquirer out in Philly, poke fun and make witty puns, but they don't sabotage their own effort. This is just tasteless.

As I said in the other thread. The Observer did not create this cartoon nor does it employ the cartoonist as a staff member. They carry a contract to publish cartoons from this particular cartoonist along with around 500 other publications.

Incorrect. Not only can you see "Charlotte Observer" next to his signature at the top right of the cartoon, Kevin Siers lives in Charlotte and is listed as a staff member of the Observer.

exactly. why isnt the CO running satirical comics of drew brees sucking at 0-3 or, oh i dont know, any of our other rivals. michael turner's dui would be a good start. if anything - attack the piss poor coaching. not the players who try as hard as they can.

I honestly hope cam gets pissed the fug off and lights up ATL. he needs to go the fug off.

it starts with this dumbass comic, but where does it end? classless move, CO. classless

LMAO... Yall are seriously over-reacting ... That pic is funny tho.... Yo Matt Ryan has won every year since he has been in the league... Dude gets blasted.... Cam hasnt won... He is not untouchable... The guy has unbelievable talent but what has he done ? .... Its early in his career so he has time but you guys act like he cant be judged.

Again, like the article I posted from NFL.com, we didn't see this from Bradford or Eli in their second years.

Well they weren't aspiring icon/entertainers trying to use td celebrations as a marketing ploy and pretending to be flying with their arms spread eagle pregame. Now I'm not wording this as such to rile people up but its what our QB does bottom line...along with getting the team a lot of press. Closest thing comparable is Rogers and he actually did get flack for doing that belt crap plenty before he even won a playoff game.

I'm not defending the cartoon because as someone put it it is childish bs but that childish bs comes with the territory of our situation whether people like it or not. They will turn his self-imaging campaign around on him. It is kinda fugged up being the local media but get over it. I think there is a large amount of fans that don't yet realize what its actually like to have a player like this on their team.
