Most of the players are complacent and lazy and electing a competitive guy like Cam as a leader would force them to up their game. They prefer the status quo.

Maybe it is just me but first and second year players have not done enough to earn being a captain. You can be a leader without being a captain. A man who has been a marine for 2 years should not be a general but he certainly can be one hell of a leader.


I looked into this not long ago. Only 1 other first round QB wasn't team captain by their second yeah in the league from the last 4-5 years of drafts.

Cams teammates dont view him as a "leader" like Smith and Gross, they just ride his back every week.

such an important thing when we are 2-8 and dont have a prayer for the playoffs


Lol Like Team Captain is such an important thing. This thread is stupid. Cam is undefeated against the Redskins team captain.

Under Gross' and Smith's leadership weve been sub .500 the last 4 seasons. Both of those guys are weak leaders and now their play is a shell of what it was. Both either come back in 2013 in reduced roles or are cut to make room for our new leaders on offense.

The usual crowd beating that tired anti Cam Newton drum.

You guys know that there are 52 other players, and a few mediocre coaches to complain about too right.

Cam gets nitpicked even on weeks he played well. While the D on a week they wet the bed in OT no one wants to discuss.

What has gross down to be worthy of a captain he doesn't demand anything from his teammates and fellow offensive line except for the usual there is always next week.

What about Steve smith? With all of the issues he's had you can make the case that he's the opposite of what a leader should be.

And Charles Johnson?? Pleeeeeeease anybody that follows cj on twitter knows he is no damn leader calling your teammates out on twitter is fuging immature and childish.

Cam isn't a captain on this team because of the losing mentality widely accepted on this team. The same mentality Cam spoke about when he first got here. This will only change when we get a head coach that makes players accountable not condoning their fuging twitter rants.

Other than being the QB, what qualities does he have that show he should be a captain?
