Sorry, but a leader doesn't talk with his head down at press conferences and refuse to make eye contact with anyone all while spewing disegenious drivel and asking for a "suggestion box" about how to improve.
Remember: the ONLY thing HE can control, is Cameron Newton.
Sorry, leaders dont hide while their young QB takes all the criticism PUBLICLY. Kalil boasted in the preseason about us going to the Super Bowl, where is he or the other O linemen right now? They are hiding. In Flacco's first few years in Baltimore, Ray Lewis took on the role as LEADER. He didnt hide from the media, he didnt let the media dart his QB to death so he didnt have to be accountable, he stepped up and led in the locker room and ON THE FIELD OF PLAY. Half our captains and leaders dont do that. They are guys who are used to losing, but are professional about it. A leader would not accept his team losing 30+ games over a 3 year span, but our "leaders" have done just that. You guys want rah rah guys, and think thats the be all end all to leadership. Tell you what, make those guys you think are that coaches and stop wasting roster spots on guys who cant play anymore, but are locker room "faves".
