So no posts about leadership?

I dont recall us overanalyzing Moore's "leadership". It seems if you arent very gifted physically or not overly talented, its assumed you have intangibles. And if you are a physical specimen, then nobody can see intangibles in you. I never seen Panther fans make such a big deal about sideline demeanor, post game press conferences, and etiquette until Cameron became our QB. And Im pretty sure if Moore or Jake put up 2 TDs, posted a 100.1 QB rating and got us our first road win IN Washington their supporters would've mentioned the "intangible qualities" they displayed in the win.

If Jake was a second year player that his team mates never mention as a leader and who sulked by himself when things got tough, I am positive his leadership qualities would be questioned.

I would say what I am saying now. Much room to grow and improve.

Who among his teammates is the leader? Who is stepping up every week on the field of play? Or is this just a team with no leader going thru the motions? Most of those guys are longtime lockerroom faves, not leaders. And I think Cam has more respect in that locker room than is portrayed on this board.

I asked Byron Bell last week. Byron said Gross and Smith.

Let's be real..You know what they are doing is nothing more than hiding their true reasons behind typical stereotypical comparisons.

The media's desire to align Cam to VY was not accidental. Many on here jumping on everything the media says about Cam isn't an accident. Let's not kid ourselves. All the media did was make it easier for those who don't want Cam on this team to defend their argument by towing the media's talking points against him when the team loses.

In the NFL ranks mean very little bc teams can get up for a game and play. Except for Armanti play, the Skins D played great. Their pass rush was excellent and our pass protection was awful. Cam did what we needed to do to win given he had ZERO time.

I asked Byron Bell last week. Byron said Gross and Smith.

What has Gross and Smith led us to the past 3 years? 30 losses right? LOL. Great leaders we have there. Smith throws his teammates under the bus, and NEVER points the finger at himself after losses. Like I said, we have "longtime locker room faves", not leaders. And thats the main thing holding this franchise back. Jordan Gross hasnt done alot of public speaking this year, and thats something you would expect of a leader in adverse times. Nope, its all on Cameron to carry that cross. Gross is NOT an emotional leader. Smith BARELY speaks or does interviews. He is a leader on the field, but off it I havent heard much speaking from him since his comments about Cam and he has enough strikes in history to get scratched off the "proper etiquette" list. I'd respect it more if people just said we dont have any leadership (including management) then dart Cameron to death about it.

I'm just telling you what a starter on the Panthers offensive line said. He didn't even mention Cam when leadership was the question. You don't have to like it, but that was the answer, and it was telling.

LOL,

Actual players tell you who the leaders are.

KT tells you they are wrong. Classic.

Brandon Lafell and Jordan Gross have called Cam "one of our leaders" before.

Bell speaks for the entire locker room? And is it really shocking a 2nd year offensive linemen points to the longest tenured lineman/highest paid player in the locker room as a leader? LOL. He didnt mention Beason either, guess he's not a leader either huh?
