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

227 posts in this topic

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?

You know guys there's a pretty good chance that Cam not being a captain says more about the qualities of Gross and Smitty than it says anything negative about Cam.

...folks just look for negatives about Cam these days, sheesh!

Kalil wasn't selected to be a captain either, guess he's not a good teammate or leader?

only the nuthuggers see it as a negative.

all the other posts are reactions to the overreacting.

All I'm saying is that Cam not being a captain doesn't mean he's not a leader. Kalil is a leader and he wasn't selected to be a captain either.

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

Smitty & Gross are "leaders" by default. Its common knowledge Carolina Panthers players bestow the Captain title on the longest tenured players. Its not performance based and its really not a big deal. Tyler Brayton, has been a team captain for us, so that tells me all I need to know about its importance.

Why dont you mention the fact that Gross even after playing in the Super Bowl for us and not missing any games did not become a team captain until his 5th season in 2008. And I dont remember any one complaining about him not being a captain in his 2nd year. Smitty didnt become a captain until 2010, his 9th season. Think of all he did up to that point, all the hard work and play he put in and his teammates didnt bestow him with the honor until he was past his prime. I'd be willing to bet Cam will be a captain on this team before his 5th season. He's so far ahead of the curve compared to those guys it isnt even funny.

Cam will be fine. Its our franchise that I worry about. If they dont put a better supporting cast around this kid and start expecting everyone on the roster to step up, I dont know how this franchise will survive if he leaves in 2 years.

Only one fact to know. That your beloved Cam was NOT voted a captain....even after he set multiple rookie QB records.

This speaks volumes. This team dies NOT see him as a leader yet.
