Re: Has anyone seen this?

Do remember watching the game with my kids! The effort was a joke! The increased level of effort to get after Newton when he got in was very evident and even more of a joke! The AFC D-Line went full bore after Newton! That was frustrating to think it was all play it safe no one gets injured than with Newton in they try to kill him!!!!

If I recall NO's S Peyton was the NFC coach...he didnt seem the least concerned about it...but if it had been Brees he would have gotten all over the OLinemen and the other teams coaches Im sure!!!!

I think everyone noticed what was going on at the Pro bowl. I certainly did. I guess he better grow up. It could only help the Panthers.

Without ? Newtons divaesk demeanor grates on others. Not sure if it is first impression at its worst or just the way he sees himself. To steal an old phrase "it is what it is" and perhaps over time and maturity the divaeskness will be tempered!

Seems like maybe if Cecil would cut the cord...completely...perhaps his son could get focused on becoming a man and less focus on becoming a iconic figure. Perhaps???? It just seems like he is/has been managed/directed and lead around by the hand by Pops to much!?!

(another name for divaeskness could be Kobebryanteskness...Newtons divaeskness will be more accepted if he can funnel his talent into winning football and titles...than divaeskness becomes more kobebryanteskness...Winning solves most every flaw...winning kobebryanyeskness is ok to the public and other players losing divaeskness is not)

He really needs to grow up!  That's actually embarrassing to read.

Re: Has anyone seen this?

There where a few things that stood out in the pro bowl last year. NFC pulling an onside kick is one. But I did see an intensity ramp up when Cam came in. In all honesty, if the players did in fact go after him for the way he acted I am bothered by that. I can not help but to think it may have been more productive to talk to the kid and tell him to tone it down. Not play harder against him while his offensive line acts like bull fighters letting pass rushers waltz by them.

I am not one to defend bad behavior. If Cam acted like a tool during the pro bowl, then he should learn from this and not do it again. But sometimes people read things wrong. for instance,

I remember seeing a video of a fan in England calling to Busta Rhymes, and he quickly passed the fan without saying anything and began to get back on his bus. The fan spoke out and called him an @sshole. He stopped and said "I am in a rush because I have to use the bathroom."

Sometimes things look far different from what it looks like. Maybe the "now's not the time" was really "I am about to crap myself and need to run before I do"

All that aside, apparently this writer is no fan of Cam and had written bad things about him in the past. Releasing this a year removed from the Pro Bowl seems a bit forced. Must be really slow in the sports news world.

I could't care less what a few unnamed players at the pro-bowl think.  I remember seeing someone say on Twitter last year that they couldn't believe Cam walked into hotel and was alone.  No entourage.  They tweeted he came back down  from his room and ate by himself at hotel restaurant.  I get the impression Cam is not a night life party kind of guy.  Most of the guys in the NFL are and probably think Cam is weird.  Ray Lewis denies he was dissed.  I would hope given Ray Lewis' history with the law that Cam would stay away from Ray Lewis.  Fact is I tell my kids not to hang out with the wrong crowd and unfortunately most NFL players are young rich immature and subsequently the wrong crowd.
