We drafted someone that said he was an entertainer and icon--he's going to celebrate.

I agree. Did anyone see Hangartner grab Cam after his 2nd TD right before Cam was about to do his superman? Cam did the right thing and scratched the celebration and celebrated with his teammates.

Yeah. I wouldn't mind it so much if it was spontaneous---even if it seemed spontaneous. Cam's first down celebration seems just too scripted, and in that sense it just looks kind of lame. You may have seen a Brady, Manning, Montana, Elway or Bradshaw give a fist pump or something of that nature in the moment, but basically their success does/did most of the talking. I don't mind a TD celebration, but first down celebrations should be saved for outstanding plays executed at key moments.

Yeah I wish he was more even like Rivera. I hate that he smiles and enjoys himself when they do something good.

I personally don't mind the celebrations....shows emotion.

But, there is a reason why Cam might want to stop them right now. The media is all over this guy. Everything he does just adds fuel to the fire. By stopping them now, you shut them up to some extent.


The funny (sad?) thing is you actually believe that.

I have no problem with the celebration when we are winning or in a close game where he picks up a crucial first down, the td celebration vs the giants is the kind of thing I'd rather not see.

Again....not bashing for him doing it. Just pointing out that his life might get a little easier if he did.


Yes Cam please show your strength and leadership and cave in who you are to appeal the media of all people.

No. The funny (sad?) thing is that he's right. You'd get two or three solid weeks of "maturity/finally getting it" pieces from the sports media were he to stop celebrating. Peter King would eat a croissant in his honor and give Newton a fluff piece about growing up in MMQB.

Personally, I don't really care one way or the other, but find it a little telling that most who hate it think Smith is badass when he has a stroke after a 4 yard completion.

It takes a great deal of hardwork, self esteem, cockiness, and otherworldly belief in yourself to make it to the NFL. Some guys celebrate and it is no big deal while others are slammed for the smallest thing. Don't mistake it though, all of these guys think highly of themselves. For a guy who analyst said could not be an NFL qaurterback and was not capable of doing anything he did in college at this level, I would rub that ish in their faces every chance I got. Much like Cam is doing. After he hugged Hangartner, he did the Superman. The funny thing is that I have seen over ten players in CFB doing the Superman this year including the kid from A & M and the linebackers from Notre Dame. Cam is such a posterboard for doing things the wrong way.

It's obvious you have never read the rules or your reading comprehension skills are comparable to Haruki Nakamura's coverage skills.

Say what you want but don't cry and whine when I or others offer up a different opinion.

You got it exactly right. I created a post a while back just suggesting that Anderson get a chance to start over Cam and it was moved to the Smack Forum. Of course, this is not a democracy either..... so it is what it is.
