A Fair Look At Cam...

55 posts in this topic

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:

What exactly is Cams job? Carry the team and then watch on the sideline as incompetent teammates and coaches piss away all the work he does?

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.

He is an NFL starting QB. They deal with scrutiny, or they get eaten by it. Deal with it.

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.

    • I was watching the Daily Show from last night for a few minutes, and they played the part where the lady in the red dress was asking Paul Ryan to step down.  What got me was how she was excusing Trump for not knowing how to be a politician, and how Ryan and other congressional republicans had led him astray.   They made the point that it sounded a lot like a mom who was making excuses why her son was failing school...   All I got to say is a big old WTF is going on?  You run for President, you have to be prepared to actually BE president, which Trump was not.  The poo show we're seeing is simply a result of people being angry and voting emotionally (during the primaries) for the "other guy" because they thought it couldn't get much worse (due to the Fox News/Obama = the End of the World nonsense).  Welp...
    • Yeah if Hillary got elected and took credit, not a single left wing kook on this site would start a thread calling her out on it.  Yet more proof you are a bunch of morons.
