Maybe I got too excited after the win. I wanted to see what the National media thought of us so I DVRed all the shows. I wanted to see them eat crow and spin it. Most of it was surprisingly humble and positive but NBC Sports rubbed me wrong.
They broke down the game and praised the Panthers for an impressive win. Then they started talking about our future. Eric Kuselias asks the question "Can Cam handle playing second fiddle to the Carolina Panthers defense?". Absurd question, I would have deleted the recording but I wanted to hear the panel shut him down first. Scott Pioli agrees with him. W T F. He says that Cam needs the spotlight(which he obviously gets in Carolina right?) and his maturity will become an issue. Then Rodney Harrison starts in on press conferences and inconsistent maturity. He asks facetiously if Cam is worth $100million.
I know, Rodeny Harrison and all of the media are idiots. I expect that. My problem is: keep your mouth shut if you don't know the subject you are talking about. If you can't express an informed opinion than don't express one at all. This is why other fan bases think our QB is an asshole, because the talking heads tell them he is. The maturity argument was weak a year ago and worse now it's outdated. Cam has done everything possible to present that angelic image the media expects from him and he's still getting ripped.
People knock WFNZ but it's the only media source that keeps up with the Panthers. Every other media outlet lags a year behind.
I'm paraphrasing and I really can't articulate just how negative their comments on Cam were. I couldn't believe the ignorance and I won't be watching that show again.
