Matthew Stafford is a great quarterback. The media don't want to look like fools later. Why would they go after him?

One of the many great NFL qbs named Matt. It's the Matt era.

No he hasn't. He's had ups and downs, but he would have a lot more ups if the coaching wasn't so horrible. They are destroying the entire offense and rendering every playmaker on it useless, as well as completely stripping them on their confidence in the process... That and the numerous hate articles coming out concern me 1000 times more than his play.

Cam has been terrible Proud. I tend to agree our coaching and playcalling is poor, but Cam doesn't do anything with what he has either. And I'm not sure why you think Newton gets any more hate than crappy white QBs. I mean, you hear about it more here because that's our team. You think Stafford isn't going to hear it in Detroit this week?

I don't see it that way.

His play and stats are relatively the same as last year. I'd expect them to be better if the coaching was worth its salt.

There are tons of white athletes, especially QBs, who have been notorious douchers and/or unsavory characters, and they are not chided and rode like Cam has been for so much less. Big Ben is a prime example. He just threw his OC under the bus, AGAIN on Sunday before they even played... Don't see that leading off Mike and Mike.

Jesus, Proud I don't know what to tell you. I guess Tony Romo's screw ups or Jay Cutler's bad behavior never led off Mike and Mike.

Big Ben has won two Super Bowls!!!

What has Cam done in the NFL to earn that kind of respect? Break a few rookie records that no one even knew existed before he broke them?

That generally involved on-field behavior.

They are using his off-field and postgame quotes to the point that they ignore his on-field performance, good or bad. They're trying to link his off-field behavior, which isn't incomprehensible to begin with, to bad on-field performance, when his on-field performance hasn't been that bad... Definitely not bad enough to justify Vince Young parallels. Yet, they're trying to fate him into that. They've completely flooded every source of media with bad stories about Cam as a person that it has begun to sway people into believing his play is bad as well.

It pisses me off.

Or Roethlisberger, for that matter. He never made headlines.

I disagree, for instance I think Cutler's off field behavior/comments are MUCH more scrutinized than his play.

Look, let's just root for Cam to pull it together.

Both the lions and the Rams have sucked for so long, the press really doesn't expect much out of them. It's News when they win or play well. Otherwise, when they loose, it's Business as usual.

Buffalo was like that until last year. Now the press disects every game of the Bills. Chiefs as well. Chiefs sit Cassel like they did yesterday, and it makes headlines! (Especially when they sit him for Brady Quinn!) That would be like sitting Newton and starting Clausen! (Hang onto the Clausen Jersey guys!)
