And, as expected, you missed the entire fuging point of the post just like I knew you would.
Did I ever mention the towel? I don't give a fug about the towel, he puts the towel on whether he just ran a 72-yard TD or threw an INT. He does that regardless if it's a good play or a bad one.
Did I ever mention Tom Brady, Drew Brees, or Matt Ryan? I stated that I think he'd be the perfect QB if he could catch 'Eli Syndrome'.
I think I made it pretty clear that I believe the media did a damn good job of disparaging Cam's image (mostly due to the massive amount of butt-hurt he dished out his rookie season), but good job overlooking that part.
I love Cam's attitude, and I never said he had character/attitude issues. I think he's funny and entertaining as hell. The ONLY thing I mentioned was how he lets negative plays effect him far more than they should, you can tell that by his demeanor just by watching a game. Prior to the second half of 2012 his entire game would drop off if he had a series of bad plays after another. That's not a slight on Cam, it's a genuine analysis, from a genuine Carolina Panthers fan (which you've stated more than enough times to count that you're not) as a room for improvement.
Please take off your Cam love goggles long enough to read this post and comprehend it in its entirety. Once again, I love me some Cam (probably more than you do, since he IS the QB of MY team afterall), but I can also look at him objectively.
Have u ever seen me start any Cam Newton treads showing my "love?" I've been a member of this site sin 2011 and never have.
My team is the Gaints but as I my Sig states, Football is a sport and I LOVE sports. I root for all football teams when I'm not rooting for my own. I don't LOVE Cam I LOVE Eli Manning. I have trememdous respect for Cam because I see a kid who simply ignores the artificially created hate surrounding him and simply be himself, which is obvious a problem with some.
When someone tries to make the argument that Cam is immature, i'm looking for something that sets him apart where I can say, yes that is something he really needs to work on in his character or it can be a detriment to his team. I really need to read some concrete evidence of such immaturity that shows him as that. What u're saying about Cam is still clearly coming from a subject place, even if it's an objective observation. Rationalizing it with saying you sit and analyze "Cam's demeanor" during a game, doesn't make it less subjective.
I sit and watch my QB also. Come to think of it, Eli is not much different than Cam. He sits on the side line and looks all zoned out when the team isn't playing well. He gets quite pissy when his team loses and quite happy when they win. My QB must be just as immature as Cam then. Come to think of it Cam's demeanor is a reflection of may 50% of the QBs in the NFL. Considering none of the side-line "imaturity" has stopped Eli from winning 2 SB rings in 8 years of his QB career, I seriously doubt that's an issue with anyone. Especially since he's still like that even to this day.
As a fan of the sport, I guess my pet peeve is how much you folks sweat the small stuff about your QB to the point where you make it easy for those who hate Cam to pounce on everything he does and spin them into "character issues," when they are clearly are not. Case in point: this NFLN guy pondering on why Cam went back to school and how much of it is a "distraction" and what he should be doing instead. If it catches on, don't be surprised if it then gets added to the whole "reason to concern yourself" list and another sign of his "character issues." See how much you're making these folks job easy.
Made it's time for you to stop feeding the trolls in the media also. And stop sweating the small stuff about your QB. U're only making guys like that NFLN Idiot relevant. Maybe it's time to take some of your own advise and catch some "Eli Syndrome."
