A Fair Look At Cam...

Recommended Posts

I think I agree with the gist of this article in every respect. Folks need to back off Cam a bit and let him grow into his job. I sure as heck would rather have him than anyone almost anyone else I can think of. Here's a link to the Yahoo! story:

I know I am in the minority, but I feel Cam's few mistakes (fumble, not hurrying up and failing to run the play before a review flag is thrown) and his corny touchdown celebrations stem from the same thing... immaturity.

Good news is time will most likely fix the issue.

I worry that we are not the right environment to "fix" Cams immaturity. We need strong leadership on the sideline which I do not think we have seen consistently from our current group of coaches. If he was on an established franchise with a proven track record of developing young players I would pencil him in for the hall of fame. But I think if anyone can ruin Cam it's us.

99% of the reactions towards Cam (particularly on this board) are complete over-reactions.

When he performs well, people are like... "yeah, so what? He's supposed to..."

When he makes mistakes, people are like... "OMG, fire Hurney, kill Richardson, burn down the stadium. AHHH!"

Its obvious he mentally prepares himself for his touchdown celebrations, probably even practices them.

Might be time better spent figuring out some of the important small nuances of the game, such as hurry up and even spike the ball if you have to on an obvious blown call on a 3rd down that went your way.

Watch as he ignores his teammates, in order to celebrate the greatness that is Cam. Never mind the scoreboard. We are talking about advancing a brand here, people.

He doesn't have second year quarterback issues. He is an egomaniac with a ten cent brain. It's not often that you see a quarterback celebrating, by himself, when his team is losing.

So.... how many other QB's are asked to be running backs as well, in this league? He is a hybrid and a damn good one i might add. He is asked to subject himself to hits normally reserved for RB's. Backs/WR's/TE's, celebrate thier efforts ALL the time. You people who bitch about the kid celebrating have an agenda. It's sickening, TBH. The fumble( failing to cover up the ball, in the event your sorry ass linemen get blown the fug up) and not snapping the ball, when Olsen told him that Smitty didn't get the foot down are SECOND YEAR QB ISSUES.

Looks like Tolbert is smiling and enjoying the dance. Gross had just given his congratulations. Go crawl back into a hole you fuging tool. I'd be willing to bet that you're PFFL, by the way.

He isn't a back, a wide receiver or a tight end. He is supposed to be the leader of a team. A leader shouldn't be celebrating, by himself, when his team is losing. Honestly, I'm glad he is your starting quarterback. He will do just enough with his physical talent to convince half of your fan base that he is the answer. Slowly, more and more people will start to question him and your fan base will be split in two. We've been through that in Atlanta. It's nice watching someone else deal with it.
