Who do u want him to mature and be like, Tom "it's all about me" Brady, Drew "my stats and personal accomplisments matter to me more than my team when they're losing" Brees, or Matt "get the fug off my field" Ryan? Yeah, wearing a towel on your head on the sidelines and having the media spin it into all kinds of ish is really more immature than the behavior of the QBs they want him to be like.
Maybe I'm a bit perturbed that this young man's every move has been undermined and folks then take it as being okay to project their own immatuity..That's all.
In all honest, I still see the same playful and sometimes silly, mixed with maturity, Cam that entered the draft. But I guess if I was one of the many fans projecting a bunch of my own issues and dislikes onto my QB because the media made it okay to do so, and now realize how stupid it was, but don't want to be humble enough to say I messed up, of couse I would then turn around and claim that in less than two 1/2 months, Cam has matured. Especially since my team closed out their season on a positive note.
Maybe, the maturity issues was less Cam and more some of those fans u're talking about.We all know how folks love to project, especially when it's made easy.
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.
