I think Wilson came into the NFL more equiped to be a "leader of men". Wilson had 5 years of major college football under his belt by the time he came into the league. He had been through adversity on the field and knew how to communicate with his teammates in a constructive way.
It was a learning experience for Cam coming in to the league. Thomas Davis had to get on Cam last season because he would always work out alone, away from his teammates. He would be aloof with his head phones on in the locker room. Steve Smith callled him out publicly for his body language.
Cam didn't have the luxury of 4-5 years of college to learn how to be a great teammate. It speaks to the type of person Cam is that he took a hard look at himself and was able to mature into a legitimate leader on this team.
All this to say, RW came into the league more "pro-ready". Cam needed to go through some hard times to become a better teammate and field general. But Boomer is totally baseless to say that RW is more mature now.
I hear ya.
Nonetheless, don't think anything Cam experienced last year was out of the ordinary for a young, very talented player.
You also have to keep in mind, Wilson was trying to win a job, while Cam was the number one pick. Wilson had to do everything perfectly if he wanted to play. Shoot, if they would have asked Wilson to scrub the bathrooms and the other players jock straps, he probably would have. Lol
My point was: Once you get past the media bluster, you'll notice Cam always had a strong work ethic, never threw his teammates, coaches or the media (though they deserved it) underneath the bus, etc.. Despite all this, Boomer tried to insinuate that Cam was selfish. That's just not true. We have to separate the personality from the reality.
No one saying Cam is/was perfect. But that doesn't mean his work ethic, professionalism, and dedication needed to be routinely questioned and overtly scrutinized. Everybody needs improvement somewhere. So did Cam. And it appeared many media and Huddler's were routinely searching for anything to say "Cam needs to improve", though it was part of a normal progression many others had experienced. And I'm not sure if that Thomas Davis reference (if I remember correctly), wasn't a joke?
Note: You didn't hear much in the major media regarding Kaepernick and RG3, though both of those guys were major head cases going back to their first or second seasons.
Cam has been a target from day one, with most of the off the field criticism I find more myth, than reality.
