Pretty much just KT this was directed at him.

As for Dellhome more is expected out of Cam, he was the #1 pick and he had a fabulous rookie season, I for one agree with you I think Cam will be fine when he matures a bit, I do however give him some slack because he is young.

so you're trolling him or stirring the pot? if not, wouldn't a private message have sufficed? or is it important to get this discussion going all over again in a new thread?

nvm....have fun with your thread.

You had the option to not post in it, instead you obliged and stuck your nose in.

And if you must know I like the article the fact that it contradicted KT was just a bonus.

I don't think the cartoon itself is racist....

I think the tendency to hammer on a young black QB is tied into race. He is 3 games off a record setting season and his team sit at 1-2 like such teams as NE and GB.

I don't see any criticism of Cam as racist at all. There were high expectations and he ;and the whole team gave struggled). He has some behavior tendencies on the sideline that should be addressed.

Remember, Favre was traded...Elu was bashed in the media...etc.

High profile QB's are always under the microscope and face criticism.

This. Quoting jason whitlock articles isnt helping the OP's case.

In some cases that is undoubtedly true unfortunately. Some of the things said about Cam pre draft would defiantly racially biased. (VY and Jamarcus Russel didn't help the situation any)


My only response to the criticism of Cam is you don't see Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady overly celebrating when the game is out of reach and then pouting on the sideline, this it isn't a race issue it is a maturity issue. Ex. Rodgers champion belt celebration.


When Cam gets his ego and temperament in control he will achieve true greatness, mind you I'm not even saying he needs to be humble (lets be honest that wont happen) I'm only suggesting he needs to choose his spots when to be Super-Man better.

You no doubt consider him an "Uncle Tom".

Even though he is right, using the race card only discredits and draws more negative attention to him.

Can I get a link to Cam drawing the race card in any pressers/interviews?

Thanks.
