Steve probably didn't say anything because what Belotti said wasn't that insulting. Steve asked a question and Belotti gave him his opinion. The End.

 

In fact, if you listen closely Belotti compliments Cam as well. Says he seems to have come around this year and that he is a big, strong, tremendous athlete and things come natural for him. He then also tells Steve "I'm just saying this but you would know because you are out there playing (with him)".

That's not a compliment; it's the NFL, everyone is a big, strong, tremendous athlete. It's just more code-speak for "he's talented but he's lazy." Calling an NFL player talented or athletic doesn't mean squat to them, because it's as obvious as day, but questioning their work ethic is as big a taboo as there is in the league because that's an easy way to end up blackballed (see: Vince Young.)

Questioning someone's work ethic and intelligence isn't an "opinion".

 

It's an ACCUSATION.

I see Smitty go up to Cam and say "great job" several times a game. I'm not really worried about what he does on the radio.

i like to think that primetime game on thursday did a lot for national perception, especially during the post-game interview. i don't think it's possible to come out of that disliking cam (unless you're a fan of an NFCS foe, in which case

just something I remember seeing on reddit from Thursday re:national perception
