Peyton Manning Sound FX

107 posts in this topic

so what is it? he has no problems? or he has no problems? because that's the only option you and a few others are giving.

you will say, if cornered that he does have some areas for growth, but when one is identified you make excuses.

i give up.

All 2nd year QBs have problems......

Cam is the least of our problems though. It ain't tough to understand.

Not sure why you act like putting a young player and offense in general in a position to fail is a unique and radical suggestion.....

Quit focusing on Cam and ask your self why Double Trouble plus Tolbert COMBINED avg 60 yards per game. Why is DeAngelo suddenly averaging 3 yards a carry, etc.

Yet you think all that is being a Cam apologist?!

We aren't losers bc Cam has sloppy footwork or pouts alone. Little issues from a young QB are the norm.....what is going on in Carolina however is comical. Cam can't overcome the scenario he is.....even with an endless ceiling. A poor organization around him can slam the door on his ceiling......and we are a poorly run organization at this point.

i've said over and over and over that no one is getting off the hook.

if this was a thread about how underachieving the RBs are or how chud sucks then i'd be in on that as well.

this is a thread talking about leadership skills of a QB and i don't think he's living up to his potential in that area.

not sure why that is a problem. is it not true?

that being true has nothing to do with the situation he's been put into being sucky. i just see him as being someone who i thought would rise above it. you don't. so you make excuses or deflect it. i guess i'm just giving him more credit than what you are.

Well again, it goes back to one man can't change a franchise......yet that unrealistically is what has been expected from Cam.

You want Cam to be what you think he should be doing..get rid of guys like Smitty. Bc Smitty and his old era bs stands in Cam's way. Rivera sucks so bad he too talks old era now. Once he was confident and embraced Newton's hell no to losing attitude and supported people needed to get on Cams's level.....now he is wiling to throw Cam under the bus out of desperation.

Cam is surrounded by the attitude he came in pointing was overflowing here.

An old saying in the South 'a mule in a horses' harness is still a mule'.

The Panthers have a lot of mules and it takes thoroughbreds to win on the race track or in the NFL.

No amount of will or rah-rah is going to make up for that lack of talent on the lines.

Fix that and many things change.

As for Newton, I expect he will be evaluted just like everyone, and if the new GM thinks he's not the guy, he won't be and it won't have anything to do with race, it will have to do with accuracy, ability to read defenses, can he lead when times are hard, can he close when the games' are on the line.

this is the same for any QB in this league from rookie to veteran and football is all about performance, period. People who think Cam has it tough should go look at what is said about Eli Manning and Mark Sanchez on a daily basis in the NY press.

I think everyone on this board, inlcuding me, wants Newton to be the Superman he poses when he scores. Appears to me he's more Clark Kent at the moment.

I agree with CRA and others. There is a difference in the way the Redskins and Colts built their team for their young QB. Then how we did it.

1. They got rid of most if not all leaders in the former regime. examples (colts - Manning, Saturday) (Skins - Brought in a whole new offense) So their QB were able to step in and be the leader by default. Cam was brought in to a locker room with "ESTABLISH" Leaders from a old regime. Not able to just come in and be the leader because you had 3 to 4 multi Pro bowlers in leadership roles.

2. Cam was getting over analyze before he was even drafted. People were questioning his character, work ethic, and intelligence.

He had to work hard (in a locked out offseason ) just to change people predescribed perception of him. Gross admitted in a interview about this. While Luck and RG3 were praised for everything from how they tie their shoes to their choice of chewing gum. They came in with a hype machine saying how great they would be and sure fire leaders.

Which is real funny because Cam is the only 1 out of the three to lead his team to a national championship, undefeated season, in the hardest conference in college football.

Not to mention only 3 player were drafted off his team and 8 players were drafted off Lucks team.

here's the thing.

i'm not expecting him to change the franchise. i'm expecting cam to be cam. i was hoping that he would at least stand his ground and be the man he was when he was drafted. instead of being the hype guy that can influence he became the guy that needed hyped up.

i wasn't expecting him to change the culture. he let the culture change him. can i blame him for that? yes and no. i can understand that, but it still shouldn't have happened. the team didn't help, but a man's got to stand. i just don't see him doing it like i thought he would.

i know at some point he will, probably next year. right now, though, he's allowing himself to be influenced by the culture. that's not strong character, imo. i was just expecting more from him.

i guess it's my fault that i wasn't expecting some guy who was emotionally tough enough to not let the people around him influence the way he acted. the sad thing for me was it happened right out of the gate. i can understand getting worn down after an extended period of time. i can understand a guy who had never experienced loss being effected by it negatively when they get their first taste of it. i just think he allowed it to put him into a funk that he hasn't been able to get out of.

i don't think he's going to be some VY headcase or whatever. i certainly don't think he's going to turn into some pissy ryan leaf. i think he'll grow out of it. it's going to take him deciding to change the way he acts and thinks, though. you can put all the best influences around a person but it's not going to matter if the person won't take it on himself to change the way he deals with disappointment.

behold, the power of the non-answer

so i guess you don't remember peyton crying about his "protection problems" in his post-game presser after the 2005 divisional playoffs.
