Trying to think of a QB that people didn't gripe about trivial issues.... Can't think of any.

Jimmy and his girly twitter posts for example.


Valid, and not just about quarterbacks, honestly. Lots of players get criticized for silly reasons.

cam is the most polarizing player the panthers have ever had, and that includes delhomme. other players have been scrutinized, yes, but not to this degree.

Criticism that is fair does not bother me.

It is the people who are anxiously watching the TV every week, waiting on every errant throw, hoping, wishing, praying, that he fails. All so they can come to the Huddle and say "SEEEZ I TOLDZ YOUZ!! HE IS DE WERST!!!!!"

And criticism is fine, Zod knows there are things he has to get better at, but I think it is at times unfair to be overly critical of a guy that is still trying to figure things out and is only in his second year and, oh yeah, is playing pretty fugging good overall.

And I also find it unfair to act as if a guy who is on pace to have around 60 total TDs in his first two years in the NFL is somehow the main issue on this team.

Fair criticism is of course fair. But hoping your QB to fail for self gratification or because he does a Superman pose after TDs is stupid and small minded..

And then because these same people are so anxious for him to fail, when he doesn't they literally create ways in which he did.

I think Cam will get it. We live in a microwave society that doesn't want to deal with the process of becoming an NFL QB. He played one year at a major college. It may take him another season to start putting it all together.

Vapid, worthless criticisms include: TD celebrations, first down pose, towel on head, taking ball from a player to give it to fan, smiling before games, frowning after losses, ignoring tools like Peter King and Rick Riley and causing them to get their panties in a wad, "arrogance", and any comparison to Vince Young.


I have posted several times about the celebrations, poses, etc.

But they are not criticisms of the actual act.....as I could care less how players celebrate on the field. My comments were more about the fact that Cam is getting a ton of heat in the media for many of these "perceived issues"....most of which is unfair. I made the statement that stopping them may be a good answer because it removes the fuel for the media fire.

That is all.

The young man is going to get it. Many of you have a myriad of reasons why you hate the kid. Most of those reasons are based on ignorance or stupidity. Just do me this one favor, once you jump off stay the fug off. I'm not throwing you a life vest when things get better.


PS- You can now make this thread about how stupid Elf on the Shelf is.


You get pie and rep just for the title of the thread!

Haven't seen many jumping, unless you define any valid criticism as such.

more unvalid ones than valid ones.

no point in dwelling on on things too much when talking about a 2nd year player who is producing......takes time for most of his issues.

Anyone who has watched Cam to this point and thinks he's going to fail is an idiot.
