What's the reason Cam is not a captain on this team?

Honestly these "fan boys" you speak of are very small in numbers. Most fans who support Cam can and have been critical of him in different aspects. I know what his capabilities are and his work ethic. With the right coaches who are stern with him when they need to be and an actual pro offense, I believe he can and will succeed.

I too believe he can and will succeed. I also think he needs a more regimented coach who will get on him about the things he needs to improve on.

My son swims competitively for a team in Charlotte. He selected the team he is on over others because the coach usher militant. He knew that a guy like that (who would get in his face when he slacked off or was not doing the little things to succeed) would be good for him. I think the same kind if coach would be good for Cam.

Saying Cam folds in the 4th is pure ignorance. When he left the field against the Bucs we were up by 8. When he left the field against the Bears we were up by 2. Cam performs quite well in the 4th; our D folds.

when the offense left the field against the bucs, they were a first down away from ending the game. instead they left the job undone.

cam spotted the bears 7 points in the fourth. if he hadn't thrown an interception, chicago never would have come back to win.

when the defense is put in a position to try to secure a win, that means the offense is struggling.

there's nothing like ending a game with the offense on the field doing a victory formation kneel down.

how often has that happened since the new regime?

This is why us missing out on a guy like Harbaugh was utterly foolish.

Rivera has no passion about him, nor is he a true leader of men. Coordinator at best, which is what we got.

I balk at the idea he's not a leader. Because I saw him take a avg.to below avg. Auburn team to a undefeated championship season.

Fact only 3 players were drafted off that team and we all know that. Neither Lee Ziemba or Fairly are leaders.

Fact his coach at Auburn is 2 years from being a national champion to unemployed.

Fact the team has fallen apart since he left. The rb was kicked out of school. None of his wr (at Auburn) will make it in the league. They went from Number 1 to unranked after he left.

Point is he took a undisciplined, poorly coach, and undertalented team to a championship. How many of the Qb drafted highly in the last 5 or 10 years can say that?

wait

So can he do it all by himself or not cuz its not getting done and all I hear are excuses. You are alluding to a guy who has accomplished everything he has accomplished in spite of his depleted surroundings, poor coaching, and lack of star power running mates. I am hearing lots of excuses pointing to these very things are exactly what is holding him back.

So its a different game?

Then your post makes no sense in this thread.

Check the stats there cowboy...they are your friend.

Cam has a 47% completion percentage and a 56 qbr rating in the last two minutes of a half. He folds when the pressure is on.....thus why he is flat unable to lead this team to a 4th quarter comeback.

You guys realize jay cutler is a team captain? Nobody likes cutler, especially his team. Captains are meaningless.

Most teams feel obligated to select the qb, the panthers don't, big deal.

Its just a way for some of our fans to slight our QB or reaffirm he's not absolute. Beason was a captain as a rookie, why isnt Keek? He's not a leader of men. See, I can do it too.

Smith and Gross are older. I bet kalil would have gotten it over him too

Maybe, but he didn't so we can play this game all day.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Football_League_team_captains

and lookin at the list, 6 teams pick their captains every week and the Jets don't ave any captains...

7 teams don't have a QB as their captains (The Bengals are included in that, so the 2 "hot name" 2nd yea QBs aren't captains

But most teams choose a QB to be captain

I would LOVE to see what a coach like Harbaugh could do with Cam.

The guy not only runs a great scheme, but he really knows the QB position.

Oh, what could have been.
