My coworkers neighbor is Jordan Gross's doctor..Supposedly Gross told the Dr. that Cam doesn't speak to anyone but a select few..that he's the ultimate diva

Don't know how accurate that is..but if it's true it makes me sad..it's one thing to be a diva to the media..but to your own team? inexcusable IMHO


That is very close to what I heard from a player

Funny how everyone bashes the media when they say something they don't like but links the same jackasses when the situation is reversed.

How does it feel to be led by the nose and dance on a string btw? Does it feel as foolish as it looks?

Jordan Gross has been one of Cam's most public defenders, so he must be one of the select few.

Also, a coworker's neighbor? I'm glad we're going straight to the source.

Some of us just bash certain people in the media.

we've already tried losing a ton of games with the aw shucks super nice fellers who you'd want to marry your daughter types.

having some nastiness and arrogance could be a good thing in the long run. flushing out the complacency is something that needs to happen.

This. Give me more Newtons and Olsens rather than the same ole few select players from the previous regime we've continually heard to be "murmuring."

I wouldn't care if it was 100% accurate. This forum is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY too hung up on its ludicrous conceptions of how professional players should act and do so with no rhyme or reason on why they feel the way they do. They just assume a QB must be both a humble, team-first guy who cries after every TD and blows kisses to his oline, and yet also a brash, gunslinging prima-donna that instills fear in opposing fanbases.

Cam doesn't have to like everyone on the team, he just has to do his job, communicate with the ones he needs to communicate with, work on his development as a quarterback, and not do anything catastrophically dumb. So far, so good, in spite of crushing losses, piss-poor coaching, unrelenting media scrutiny and a fanbase of retards.

Let the goddamn kid grow up on his own terms, I'm sick everyone making everything he does into a referendum on his diva-ness.

I can only say I have heard the same thing from a player. Good bad or indifferent is up to each individual.


Two things to be thankful for are the rookie cap and new GM. IF Newton turns out to be a team killing shithead or doesn't continue to progress, the new GM doesn't have the same ties to players and the cap makes it easy to say "fug it" and move on if necessary.

Hopefully it's not true (or misconstrued), Cam continues to develop and he's that franchise guy for us.

So, who here is going to be the first to post on Twitter that Rick Reilly is a self-absorbed know-nothing arrogant prick?

Make sure you let us know if you post it first.

I was at the Tampa game and during a TV timeout he spoke to nearly everybody on the offense and was slapping five with everyone. This was when we were down 10-0 in the first half. So maybe the entire offense is part of the select few?
