From what I got out of the original article, he was suggesting that Cam stay humble. He doesn't like the Supercam thing, which I think runs a lot of people the wrong way. I've meant several people who were bothered by Cam's attitude early on. They recognized he was extremely gifted and his potential was endless, but like anybody whose self-admiration is through the roof... secretly, you kind of hope they get lost!
The NFL likes guys who come from nothing like Wilson and make it work. They like that story of overcoming obstacles. But when you act like you are a monster amongst child, it makes people angry.
Cam did a lot of this to himself early on. Yes, he has matured a lot... but memories of his attitude on the field, even if the past is the past, still rubs critics and a lot of football fans the wrong way.
I don't think it's entirely fair because of Kap, who is a complete tool, and considered one of the best QBs by the media. The only difference is, Kap did take his team to a SuperBowl which you can't argue. Jim McMahon again was also a d*** but again, a Super Bowl win.
The fact is, no matter what you want to blame, we haven't even won a playoff game. That's a big deal when you put yourself on a high pedestal. I think if you combine that fact with his level of ego, it will always upset many people. Bottom-line is, when you put unrealistic expectations on yourself, you have to back it up with unrealistic stats. His stats now are solid, but unrealistic and inhuman? That's a stretch. I understand why the media has a hard time with him. I really do.
The first time i saw Cam do the Superman pose, I smiled because it made him seem so statuesque and unstoppable. BUT at the same time, I sort of saw how that might haunt him his entire career if he didn't perform to that unstoppable level day in and day out, which was really unrealistic.
Fact is, if Cam had come into the NFL, stayed humble, and hit the same numbers he is hitting now... critics would consider the limitations he has on this squad because of our injuries, and put him in the top 5 QB spots guaranteed! The fact is, Cam has to be 20x better than the top 10 QBs on the current list, because that is the expectations he has put on himself.
