"well-spoken" is a much more nuanced concept than most people care to admit, and it ties heavily into perceptions of leadership. in fact im gonna type up an effort post about this


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.

You'll not find a bigger fan or someone that wants Cam to succeed more than I do.

But he is not a well spoken young man. He could use a public speaking coach in addition to his QB coach.


Give me a break, Cam isn't running for Senate or being paid to argue in court. The kid is doing just fine in his press conferences, simple and plain.

Cam has a slight stutter.

No but if he wants to start winning over his detractors it wouldn't hurt him to invest some time this offseason in getting smoother in front of the camera when he doesn't have a ball in his hand.

Again, don't get me wrong. I love me some Cam. I'm just saying he could use some polish.

He's been better after a loss actually if you compare him from this year's earlier losses to the latest ones... People are so god damn hung up on a few bad press conferences that werent as bad as people say they are it's ridiculous

I wonder if the Colts Fans find fault with Luck's speaking. Have you ever listen to him?

Cam was vastly improved in losses as the year went on. Not sure how its still an issue.

I would rather him work on his footwork.

Rivera's head was hanging awfully low. He looked defeated. I wonder if he knows his fate already.


+ 1. I thought the same thing

I don't know a lot about analyzing body language but he hung his head, avoided eye contact most of the time, and just seemed a little deflated considering he just won a road game against and division rival. Maybe it's the uncertainty of whether he just coached his last game for the Panthers instead of already knowing he's out.
