Wow. The worst thing to happen to RGme was getting drafted by Snyder.


Probably.

Maybe if he had gone to a more solid organization, he'd be better off.

Still don't think he'd have had longevity though. His body is just not suited for the NFL.

ok so I've been really busy and totally out of the loop on the NFL if the Panthers aren't concerned can someone give me a quick synopsis on why this is happening?

 

From what I gather owner and RGIII are best buds. Shanny doesn't like RGIII and is using the notion of "we want to keep him healthy" as a cover for "fug this spoiled brat I don't like him." 

 

is that it? this just seems really weird and odd to happen, maybe I'm looking into it too much

Ok so can the media please stop comparing RG3 and Cam? It's not even close. Cam has never been close to being benched in each of his 3 seasons.

 

They actually stopped, since it seemed to offend RG III. Funny how that is.

 

Also, I find the handling of this so typical of the Chosen QB syndrome those in the media place themselves into. They manage to spin the situation to make it appear as if it's everyone else's fault but their chosen qb. If everyone around the QB goes and the problem still remains, as in the case with Blainr Gabbert, they will let the QB fae into the sunset so they won't have to admit they were wrong.

 

I don't believe RG would have ever been on the radar of those in the sports media if it wasn't for Cam being drafted the year before Luck did. Those folks wanted a QB they could compare their real chosen qb too, RG became Luck's measuring stick.

 

As I've said before, everyone knew RG was damaged goodd before he entered the NFL, just like they knew Blaine Gabbert's inability to handle pressure and accuracy issues.

RG3 better watch it. If he continues to struggle, Snyder won't be so buddy-buddy with him.

To a certain extent.

RG3 has truly taken a far greater fall with the media than Newton did. There is hardly any grace left.

Would it not be fair to say he's brought a lot of it on himself?

A part of me still is a fan of RG3, but he has greatly pissed me off over thr last two seasons, mainly because of his primadonna ways that he maintained while the media continued to slob him off, and simultaneously, Cam was getting trashed for nothing.

Now RG3 has been exposed for being self-absorbed, a poor teammate, and pampered... some would even say fake - everything Cam was accused of being with no evidence to support it. And now, Cam is everything all of the other young QBs wish that they could be.
