Sorry this is BS. The media lies or is wrong about a lot of things; whether they do it willingly or blithe-fully ignorantly or not. You (the media) can't hold Cam to an unfair standard, then tell him how he needs to act when he doesn't meet that unfair standard
People (you mean media) just don't bring up RG3 doing the same thing with the touch down fumble; or Kaepernick spiking the ball after a TD and drawing a penalty; or Brady kicking a defender that wasn't even on him, etc., cause their hopeless homers. They bring it up cause it's a gross double standard (created by the media). Just judge Cam fairly like anyone else.(I judge Cam based on what I'd want my QB to do, who carea bout teh media.)
Like I said, I'd hope ANY QB does what I wanted Cam to do. Problem with huddle is they keep comparing him to other QBs and keep caring what the media is saying. Forget about the media, forget about all other qbs, forget about it all. Now, would you want your QB to congratulate a teamate that saved their ass? I just don't understand saying no.
When Cam yelled at that ref in the Oakland game, some people (the media) made a mountain out of it. Considering how beat up Cam was getting, he had a right to be upset. (yes he did, but I want my QB to keep emotions in check and not let them get the better of him. I believe he let the emotions get the best of him and affect his play because of what I see, not because it's what the media tells me) The bump was accidental, and Boger (the Ref) knew it. What makes it so ironic? I can't ever recall Cam yelling at a referee before. Ever! But some Panther fans were demanding an apology as if Cam was some kinda repeat Referee offender, and Ax murderer. (or they just want a classy QB, NOT keeping in mind/comparing all other Qbs and listening to the media, just a want for a classy QB) The media will always pick on certain things Cam does and says (until they or the public get tired of it) (or until he wins games, but really who fuging cares?), cause they know draws interest and eyeballs. They don't care. (so why do Panther fans? This statement is basically my entire point.)
Yes, Cam should be called out on anything out of the ordinary he does (except by the media). However, anything that he does that's expected for his tenure or experience, he should be spoken to and expected to get better, but not castigated for it, like it's something rare or he's some leper That's what people have a problem with.
I don't have a major prblem with it whatsoever at this point, because I chalk it up to immarturity which can be fixed with experience. I never said it was unique to Cam, but it matter to me more because Cam is unique to me, being MY QB for 'MY' team. He has the talent. Right now, doesn't bother me, doesn't mean he doesn't have an issue. Doesn't mean I'll sit here and say the issue doesn't exist. I personally think he holds himself back when he gets down in the dumps, and I formed that opinion fom watching him, NOT from the media, and I hope he gets over it which I am sure he will as he grows. I am exited as a fan to see that day come.
Sometimes Panther fans act like Cam is their recalcitrant bad child who always gets in trouble, that needs to be constantly monitored and punished, when he's honestly been a model citizen since he's came in the NFL (actually since Blinn Junior College). The rest of it, is just Media BS, cause everyone has their own personality, and not everyone's the same.
I think Cam has a lot of class as far as off field issues, basically non-existant for Cam. I don't think he is a bad boy and I don't think he has character or leadership issues at all. I do think he needs to not let emotions get the better of him and he does need to realize that kind of vibe rubs off on his teamates. Cam himself agrees, and smitty agrees. And when Cam is called out for it, I'll agree, because it reaffirms what I already think seeing him play, as a fan, rather than give me some new concept on him from the media.
But according to the huddle I can't have this opinion, I can't have standards I want in my QB for my team because other Qbs of other teams aren't that way and the media says it too so it can't be a valid opinion, its just some BS formed around the media. Well, not all fans give a poo about the media and other qbs and these fans can still see some of the same things.
That'll be my last post here, too a bit of effort to explain where I'm coming from lol. Like I have said before, forming opinions through the hate of the media is just as bad as forming them through buying into media crap. Whether you hate the media for what it says or buy into what it says you deserve your own misery and invalid perspective because you care what the media thinks.
mistyped/spelled words aren't that funny...I type without watching the key board and am too lazy most of the time, but I misspell things too because I am not perfect. I guess to people who think they're perfect, this is amusing...
