Cam is a great talent, but his attitude is a significant issue. 1. Imagine you were office manager and every time something went wrong, you pouted, went into your office and threw a towl over your head. What would the office climate be like?
It is not hate for me, but it is concern. I did not want Cam, primarily because i was concerned about his character. He could be great, but right now, he needs to be led. We want him to lead.
You could argue that he was better down the stretch. Was that because we were winning, or did his positive attitude cause us to win? I understand his frustration and cannot imagine how frustrating it is to see Hangartner's name on the back of his jersey pressing into your facemask---we need to protect him more.
2 Cam's attitude is based on the pressure he puts on himself. He was frustrated because the playbook was too thick for him. That is why he was holding the ball so long during the first half of the season--thinking too much.
Growing Pains. 3 We want the confident, smiling Cam running the team, not the upset-with-himself Cam.
1. I'd imagine it would be just fine considering he has his towel over head even when we are winning and/or have the victory locked up. He literally does it all the time, probably to keep heat in so he doesn't feel like he's not warmed up.
2. You don't think not running slant routes, quick outs and flat passes had anything to with it. Go watch the tape, just about every time we passed and Cam faced immediate pressure there isn't a receiver visible on the camera, they are all running downfield routes. The only reason it looked better the second half was because we weren't running the read option 15 times a game which allowed DEs to pin their ears back and gun for the backfield.
I don't even know where you came up with this excuse of him over thinking or being unable to handle the volume of a playbook. You have no sources of information for this, no evidence from his play and didn't even steal this from some hack journalist. You literally just made that up and have cemented yourself into being no better than the journalists who publish lies about Cam holding up the team bus or spending thousands at strip clubs. Maybe you should join the media.
3. Yea I'd love it if Cam was smiling like he'd just won the super bowl after every game he lost. Let me know the next time you see Brady, Brees, Rodgers or either Manning smiling like a heroin addict on a new dose of smack after a loss - even better while they are getting their ass beat in the middle of a game. Just because you can sense Cam's dissatisfaction more than other QBs doesn't effect his play on the field one bit.
