I was thinking about this for awhile and I think for the next few games Cam needs to cut down on his more elaborate/superman celebrations. I know it may sound like an overreaction but I'm looking at this from a psychological perspective. And by that i mean towards the fallout it causes. I think it's safe to say that Cam hates losing and i love that about him. I think he's genuine when he talks about how disgusted losing makes him feel. But I also think he's having a much, much harder time dealing with it than he lets on and the media is not helping at all. That's why I think he needs to calm down on the "superman" and A-stomp" celebrations for now. After the Giants loss the media has been honing in on his celebrations as a target to criticize him. Even watching the NFl.com highlights of todays game they started questioning Cams endzone celebration against the Falcons. I have a feeling that if he does one of those celebrations and doesn't win he will continue to be ridiculed by all forms of sports media and his maturity and leadership scrutinized more than it should be and right now he can't handle the constant character assassination. He can celebrate with his teammates but i think his more flamboyant celebrations should be shelved until the "W's" start piling up and the networks aren't ripping him for them.

As long as he keeps scoring touchdowns and doesn't get penalized for his celebrations, I'm ok with it.

Who the fug cares, The Golden Calf of Bristol got to pray to his lord everytime he scored, how come Cam can't do his signature TD celebration which fans and kids love?

Wishing I could have seen his rush for a first down celebration he's been doing just once more today.

I doesn't bother me. No one will say anything about it if we are winning.

The point wasn't about whether you cared. I love his celebrations but as long as he does it and we lose he is going to be personally criticized and i think "he" feels it more than he wants to admit. This isn't the same as at Auburn where he could deal with the scolding by going undefeated. He's being called out for being a loser and he can't refute that and no one is giving him any latitude. I'm not asking for him to not celebrate but use more subdued ones for now until he can put more W's in the column. It gives everyone else less venom to throw his way and it makes these all the more sweeter when he doesn't need to be attacked for them.

I actually thought about this today when Cam did his thing on the TD run. The thing that bothered me was that some of the lineman were around him (I think Gross in particular was trying to congratulate him) and Cam just went on and did his thing basically ignoring the guys who helped him get there. That bothered me from a team perspective. When Cam does these things it seems to be more about Cam than the team.

I get that guys want to celebrate but when you are in a leadership position such as at QB...try to include your teammates in it if they are right there with you.

Him celebrating has to effect on whether we win or lose. Let him enjoy his TDs like everyone else in the NFL is allowed to do. The guy is under so much pressure and heat all the time. Let him enjoy stuff like that.
