One thing I have noticed. Everyone puts an magnify glass to this kid's every move. It comes with the territory I guess, being the number one pick and all. I always thought that people made a big deal about his press conference. The same people who complain about his press conferences are the same ones who would freeze up if they were on stage. This brings back memories of me having a public speaking class in college. My first speech I was so nervous(alot of cuties in there). I started just being funny and it helped a lot lol. Anyway, back on topic lol. You can tell he is definitely trying to work on his press conferences. He is a football player/ He doesn't need to be a historic speaker. Anyway , 3-3!

Thank you. He is getting paid to produce on the field, not give good press conferences.

 

Why some insist on ragging on him for something he said in a press conference is beyond me. Pretty much every athlete will sometimes say stupid things in front of the cameras.

And he didn't even say anything stupid, he was just speaking colloquially. . .in a colloquial setting.

This is not rage, nor a critique of the man's public speaking skills, but the kid is hilarious when he starts trying to wax poetic in a presser.  His metaphors are all over the place.  When Cam gets started on a sentence after he uses the words "like" or "as" I get on the edge of my seat straining to hear what delicious gold is gonna flow out much in the same way I'm leaning towards my TV during one of his escape acts from the clutches of a certain sack. 

 

"Its absolutely unbelievable!"

Nobody is raging on him.  Poo's just funny.

I couldn't make it through the whole thing honestly. These reporters are just awful. They either ask really stupid questions, or they're simply trying to bait someone into answering a controversial question to create a story. No such thing as real journalism anymore I guess.

1 of the best press conferences I've seen from Cam.

Can we stop with the cliche's of "Cam's growing right before our eyes", etc., every time he has a good press conference?

 

Cam has for the most part said the right things. It's just the few things the media blows out of proportion is what most of us inexplicably seem to remember (whether deserved or not). 

 

Cam's been saying the right thing at press conferences since his rookie year. He's a team player that's always been accountable for his actions on the field, who wants to get better, while at the same time being humble. 

 

And no, I didn't watch the long video either. Lol

I like how he cut them short on the comparison between him and Bradford.  Also, thought it was a crappy of the question about how Bradford was making 50 million and Cam was making 20 million.
