so i was given a sound cloud link in another thread to a couple of interviews. Put in a search for the panthers and found this interview with Beason two months ago.

i've said it before in that Captain thread. I will be shocked if Cam doesn't become a Captain this year.  It's good to hear Beason feels the same. He also said that it will help Cam in the maturation process because he knows Cam will take it very seriously. Said he was happy to hear that Cam wanted the "C."  Interesting anyway to hear it from another Captain.

I can see Cam taking this serious and when things go bad he is motivating players then wearing a towel on his head and sitting on the bench,

Cam is acting as the leader of this team and deserves the C.

Google news "Colin Kaepernick captain" results: 549 articles

Google news "Cam Newton captain" results: 1,490 articles

Neither one was a captain last year, only one seems to be required to be captain this year.

If Cam is made captain he should probably get a C stitched onto his towels as well. Or does that cross a line. lol

Again, I just don't see how anyone can elect him a captain when he very clearly wears towels on his head. How have you people not accepted this yet? It is a towel, and it is on his head.

Do you guys not notice the placement of the towel in this picture? I'm so tired of you homers and stuff not caring more about this. This towel is on his head. What about that can you not come to grips with? Don't you see how this clearly is an indictment on his character? Do you really feel as if someone can lead with his towel in that position?

 

 

Sheesh I'm gonna go watch ESPN so I can finally get some real in-depth towel placement coverage and analysis.

 

Clearly, it is not only placed on his head, it is also tucked.

I would not be shocked if he wasn't a captain....with Smitty and Gross there is a lot of vet leadership on the offense

 

I also would not be shocked if he was a captain....he has really grown in his leadership skills and you always want your QB to be a captain.

 

Personally I hope that they DO select him a captain so the media would move on from that topic....less of a distraction for him and the team.

It's all about learning to be a leader during the good times and bad (hopefully there is more good times this season). I always thought the "towel on the head" thing was blown way out of portion. Who cares? It is more about everyone nitpicking. I would like to see him fire the boys up on the side line when we are down during a game but I started to see a lot of that last year. This QB position in the NFL is a big time position and sometimes it takes learning what it takes to lead a group of grown man. I can say that I am proud to have him as the QB and this towel/maturity issue is getting over played. Just let the kid play. I know its the media's job to bring up topics and get ratings but it sure gets old. anyway, Go panthers!

I definitely think he deserves to be named, but I wouldn't be shocked if he weren't due to Gross/Smitty.

Like stated above, I really wish he would get the C so the media will stfu about that.
