A lot of talk about CAM

24 posts in this topic

Much has been made of Cam Newtons demeanor on the sidelines and people have been blatantly calling into question his leadership ability and most recently his manhood (that hello kitty mess is like begging for an a**whoopin). I would like to give you all food for thought.

Few people can truly understand what it is like to have NEVER LOST. I dont mean a single game, I am talking about at life. Try and understand what that means mentally. To be soo much better at something than everyone you have ever been around that you can not understand what it is to lose and face your mortality. What would that person look like. What attitude would he have... I dont know his high school stats (and any stats anyone finds would most likely be inaccurate), but in college his success is well documented.

1st year as a starter=1 loss, 11 victories, national championship

1st year at SEC also knowns as the best collection of talent at the college level= undefeated, national championship, heisman

Follow this up with the number 1 overall pick by a team that plays in what some considered the toughest overall division last year (atleast at the start of the season). And while there were several losses, he still broke a 10+ year passing record and a 30+ year rushing td record, and was awarded with the rookie of the year award. Over those 3 years and im sure his entire football career before them he has numerous awards and records. That is 3 years of unprecedented success. That combination of accolades has Never been seen before. Noone has ever even sniffed that level of success before Cam.

And now the present. His talent is undeniable and still something to be marveled but for some reason he cant understand it is not enough. He can no longer walk (or fly as the case may be) onto the field and ooze excellence. His advantage of height and strength no longer awe those around him. His speed is no longer speed enough...He is humbled, humiliated and dare I say it defeated. I believe that is what we witnessed in that press conference, in the interviews and on the sidelines. Defeat.

But it is not over. Cam is not out. Through his successes he has faced his share of adversity. He has a proven resilience that has yet to fully manifest itself in the man he is becoming. His character is being formed now. There will be some growing pains sure. True Greatness does not come easy, and the journey is just beginning. He will struggle at times, relying less on talent. But his skill will improve.

Carolina is not an elite team, we may not even be good when we look back on this season and as talented as Cam is his talent is not enough. We need his skill . The skill that comes with truly understanding what it means to have people rely on you. Not just because you are so good you hide their mistakes, but because of the man you are. He will learn with time to feed off their respect, to hold them up and draw out their greatness. At that moment watch out because he will achieve a level of success he has never experienced before.

I believe in you Cam. I understand the pressure and I know you will pull us through. Keep your head up.

P.S. Stop throwing interceptions. I mean seriously just stop. No, no, no. Bad Cam.

the problem is cam has never had to overcome adversity in his college career.

To be a great leader, you have to lose sometimes, cause ya have to learn how to come back from making mistakes, have to learn how to overcome adversity, and to lead the team through it.

I'm confident he will, but it is not a quick process.

Patience.

What the fug are you talking about "never lost at life"? He was basically run out of Florida and ended up playing JUCO for a year before he went to Auburn and became a superstar.

You realize he was down by 3 possessions at halftime against Alabama, right? Then he rallied to beat them. Or the fact that he had the adversity of overcoming all the negative talk and keeping his head on straight. Sure, he didn't lose like a lot of QBs have. So what? Adversity is more than just losing, and Cam has always handled the adversity thrown at him really well. Please, be less ignorant.

Cam will be fine. He is the least of our worries.

Give him a decent defense. Call plays that don't require 30 seconds to run. Use the running backs and o-line for which we are paying premium dollar.

Watch what happens.

He wasn't run out, he realized he'd never get a shot because that douche bag Urban had Tebows wang lodged in his throat. Is there anyone who thinks Cam wasn't a superior talent compared to Timmy T?

You obviously don't realize the.importance of what it takes to be a truly great leader.

Off the field adversity isn't quite the same, otherwise i wouldn't have said anything .

Go figure.

quoting an entire essay paper was necessary?

Cam has an unparalleled passion to win and until he can consistently win games he's gonna have that fire

The biggest problem isn't really with Cam, it is that fans actually believe he is Superman.

Cam will be fine as long as he's allowed to sling the ball. Defense needs to go for Turnovers because they aren't stopping anyone otherwise. Green Bay's defense was usually heralded as pretty good during their superbowl year, but they were getting turnovers. They weren't real good at stopping offenses, but good at helping out their own. Same with the saints, same with the giants. Defenses are no longer capable of shutting down all offenses. You have to find ways to help your own. That allows your Offense to make mistakes and puts pressure on the other.

Cam will be fine. He will continue to grow. Growth is important.
