If Delhomme was half the athlete Cam is we would've won that damn SuperBowl...

If Rivera was half the coach Fox was we would be 5-1 right now.

I agree completely. Delhomme lacked 99% of the natural athletic ability Cam has, but he was always a fiery positive influence on the team. The team rallied around Jake and everyone was better because of his leadership. With Cam, everyone is worse. Granted Cam is still very young, but he comes across as a childish, self-centered baby. I'd take Delhomme at his best 7 days out of 7 compared to Cam.

RG3 seems to have a good personality, leadership-wise, as does Luck. But I want to see how these guys react when they are faced with adversity, and when every word out of the media's mouth is questioning both their abilities and their mental states. That is tough for any young person.

I'm not trying to equate Cam with anyone else. Everyone is unique. In my eyes though, all these guys (Cam, RG3, Luck) have the raw material to be effective leaders. Just remember that leadership is something that must be molded and shaped over time. We don't come out of the oven ready to go.

Should be noted....there were various stages of Delhomme's leadership. The guy we saw emerge late 2003 and lead this team over the next couple seasons wasn't the same leader that walked out the door.

That on field leadership we love and covet isn't always a constant in a player. It can emerge and it can fade.

People have followed Cam before.....a gutted roster could work wonders. We brought in a new coach but we have and had a lot of "old" in this so called new era post Fox.

I know I will catch hell but that hasn't stopped me before....I think the Smitty era needs to end as well. He did great things but we need a new beginning and represents a lot of things....good and bad. Soon he will be more attitude than player....

Delhomme was, this team would be winning more game.

Curious how.many other can even admit this.

I have got news for you.

The coach makes the team and what he does or does not get out of his players...period.

You take Tom Brady away from Bellinchek and that system, not is good.

Montana away from Bill walsh, not as good.

Unitas, Bradshaw all the rest.

There a few exceptions but not many.

Righ head coach + the right QB to lead his schemes and right D captain to lead the defense = Wins.

I'm really sick of these 'if Cam this and if Cam that'. The reality is the only person's opinion that matters right now about Cam is the person writing the checks. Why waste energy on this.

Delhomme was a good leader and I loved his passion on the field. But Cam's leadership isn't making the o-line block like crap nor is it calling the read option every play.

He isn't instilling confidence in his teammates.
He isn't inspiring to play at their highest level.

Say what ya want about the coaching, but Cam is having a negative impact on the rest of the team.

Spin that however you want.

Cam is suffering from the same problems he had as a rookie.
As long as he continues down the path he is currently on, he'll never be a good quarterback with the game on the line.

Do the Panthers have other problems, yes, but that isn't what this thread is about. So redirecting blame elsewhere does nothing but ignore the problems that the face of this franchise has.

Yeah what ever happened to that fiery leader Jake Delhomme?... Oh yeah, he got ran the hell out of town.

Coincidentally a faction of imbeciles want to do the same to Cam after only a season and a half.

You morons deserve nothing more than decades of Jimmy Clausen clones.

who wants to run him out of town?

He isn't instilling confidence in his teammates.

Neither did one of Jake's game ending back breaking INTs. If they cant motivate themselves after a 1-5 start, they dont deserve to be here. Half his teammates will be gone in a few months anyway. Then we really get to see how Cam leads HIS team.
