Very Nice Press Conference by Cam

I've never had a problem with him after losses. I never want him to accept losing. Does he need to get a little better at internalizing that frustration and putting on a better show for the media sometimes? Yeah, he does. But I always want him to feel what he shows in those pressers after a loss - pissed off and unwilling to settle for failure.

Exactly.

Speaking classes are one solution. Winning more is another. I'll take the latter.

Has anyone noticed at the end of the presser when he mentions about "things being said" it looked like he was directing that to someone. Joe Pearson? Had him clearing his throat and a death glare. lol

Don't get me wrong, I'm not intimating that he isn't smart or well educated. He just doesn't seem manage extemporaneous speaking well and as a result it makes his interviews and press conferences seem strained.

Lol. The irony. And you had time to think that through and then proofread it.

At least you threw in the big word you just learned. :thumbsu:

Cam has a slight stutter.

When talking in front of a room full of people, lots of people have slight stutters.

I want to give a quick story about being well spoken in those types of situations.

I like to think that I am at best moderately intelligent and at worst just not a complete fugging idiot. IRL I am a pretty confident person who is fairly gregarious and I am not shy about being in front of people.

In high school I was a pretty good basketball player. Good enough for WRAL (local news station here in Raleigh) to come out and do a feature on me. The local sports anchor and I got together to do an pre-taped interview for the evening news.

Welp, they put a camera about a foot away from my face and throw a microphone a couple of inches away from my mouth and ask me some silly little simple question. And all I provided was a long, protracted, awkward silence. I just could not form any coherent thought. The news anchor cut and said "Don't worry. Just relax. When we edit it you will sound fine" It didn't help much. He asked questions and I pretty much sputtered out sentence fragments for the entire interview. Luckily the anchor was a man of his word and once edited it was at least passable for the evening news.

As I went through college and did more and more interviews I eventually got better at them. But people underestimate how hard it is to go out there and form intelligent, thoughtful answers right there on the spot. Thank God my interview was not live or else people would have wondered how I was passing any of my classes in high school.

So basically, being well spoken is overrated. I try to listen to what people are saying, not how they are saying it. I have met well spoken idiots and shy geniuses. The content is more important than the delivery.

Jerry Richardson is a horrible public speaker, so much so he goes out of his way to do as little as possible. I think he sets a great example for Cam.

It speaks to a bigger problem that some of our fanbase just cant accept our QB for who he is. When Jake, Jimmy, & Matt were our QBs a lot less attention was paid to their press conferences and people really didnt care. They accepted them for who they were despite their lack of talent and judged them on performance ONLY.

We all know what the real issue is. Not worth getting into another worthless debate over it resulting someone getting banned.

Lets just enjoy finishing the season strong and our franchise QB beating the golden boy brees in his smelly ass dome.

Speaking with a camera on you is nerve racking. Easy for people who have never done it to ridicule you. Just like everything else, lack of insight doesn't stop anyone from sharing their worthless opinion.
