Cams attitude is, has been, and always will be fine just the way it is. The media gives mentally retarded people a bad name. At least handicapped people cant help it. Cam is awesome and these nitpicky little worms with their smarmy little sideways remarks are just secretly jealous of our incredible QB, his charisma and smile, his athleticism and abilities, and they hate the idea of a young confident kid being so successful so early because they were such abysmal failures when they were young and still are slimy sad little failures of a human being and know damn well they will die that way.
Oh how quickly you forget or just want to ignore but remember this from the ever beloved Steve Smith going to the media and starting adding fuel to the fire?
"I watched D.A. and Jimmy, they don't play in 20-something games last year," Smith told Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer, adding that he used some "unchoice words" in the process. "And they get up and they observe and learn and get those mental reps. I told [Newton], 'You can get some mental reps or you can sit on that bench and sulk.'"
And than this from Kalil and Gross:
This isn't the first time Newton's teammates have taken issue with his demeanor when things go wrong. Last December, he was told by Panthers offensive linemen Jordan Gross and Ryan Kalil that he needed to keep his head up when situations aren't perfect.
"They always get on me — I have a bad tendency of showing my emotions on my face. I have to change it, and I'm trying to change it. But those guys constantly stay in my ear, saying, 'You've got to be that same leader from the first quarter to the last quarter' ... It made me mindful it can be somewhat of a detrimental conduct to the team. If you're mad. If you're ticked off. Not saying that everybody else is not feeling the same way you [are]. But at the quarterback position, you have to stay even-keeled
To compare Cam's attitude the last couple years to a fiery Tom Brady, Steve Smith, Big Ben, etc isn't even the same topic.
Considering Cam himself has been very vocal this year about wanting to change the way he had been reacting to tough situations it is blind homerism to think that he didn't have some maturing to do. I'll give him this, I really think he has turned the corner this year and put all that behind him and people will see that but to say his attitude has always been fine when he and his teammates acknowledge it has been an issue is just sticking your head in the sand.
