I vote that anyone calling Cam "scam" be banned.

Are you German, by chance?

A few things to think about...

If you watched the whole presser, Cam's comments about the script came immediately after he talked about his play needing to improve and the losses from a play here or there. I did not get the sense that his comments were directed at Chud anymore than at himself.

Next, please consider that in the last 24 hours we have heard direct quotes from the ex-GM and our current head coach that they don't know what's wrong and aren't sure how to fix it. In spite of that, our 23 year old, 2nd year QB is supposed to go in front of the press and diplomatically tell them what's wrong while exhibiting perfect emotional control.

So no, I don't think the criticism is fair in any way.

Cam did talk about his failures. But, as much as I hate to admit it....when he loses...he is moping....and I am sorry, it almost seems like he feels like he is a victim. He also mentioned the coordinator in this presser......a big NONO. Cam is not a rookie anymore. He needs to man up. He comes across as self centered with his ridiculous Superman celebrations when he scores. His losing sulking is getting old. Someone needs to grow a pair and be straight with Cam. If I need to be the one...someone hook me up.

Cam's press demeanor needs to improve. Completely agree with that. You can't always look defeated after a loss. It sends the wrong message to the team.

Am I upset that he called Chud to the carpet... no. It needed to be done, and only he or Rivera could do it and something would happen. Rivera didn't do it, so Cam took it upon himself. Ideally Cam should have spoken to Rivera and Chud directly instead of airing their dirty laundry, but we aren't privy to what conversations they've had on the subject and could have felt he needed to take the next step.

Perhaps, but before you can start calling people to the carpet, you got to have your own poo tight. No one is making Cam throw picks or wounded ducks in the red zone. No one caused Cam to make a crucial fumble against the Falcons, with almost certain victory but a yard away. Leaders have to finish the deal on the field. In my opinion, Cam's game isn't great enough to be calling people to the carpet without him voluntarily going to the carpet himself and criticizing his own failings first and foremost.

We might not want to hear it, but true leaders don't sulk out in the open. They project a certain demeanor on the outside (even if they are not exactly sure what's going on on the inside), because they realize that people are looking to them---right or wrong---to get them to the promised land.

Everybody in the media and even some of our fans put losses solely on Cam's shoulders....

Then he says, "fug it, I'll talk as if this is my team to run" with some of his comments....

And people get pissed? If he doesn't say anything at all, he's immature. If he speaks his mind and is honest and forthcoming, he's almost always called immature. You want him to kiss ass? Want him to put on a fake smile and not be honest? Is this what we've come to? Pardon the South Park reference, but when did we lower the bar to saying, "no, don't let these overly-criticized athletes be honest when asked a question"? If coaches/ownership don't want players answering certain questions, then they should screen them and if one gets sneaked in, then they should cut the interview there and say next question or just pull the player away. Short of doing that, if the man is asked a question, and he's honest and speaks his mind, and it's not something you like....figure out WHY he is saying it rather than bitch about the fact THAT he said it.
