The Broncos’ defense was ALL over Cam the entire game, and even with 2 minutes left and a 24-10 lead, they didn’t let up. The 26-year-old was hit hard late in the fourth quarter, and stormed off the field, almost pulling his helmet off as he made a show of his anger. His frustration was evident, but, understandably, he’s also being slammed by viewers for the unsportsmanlike display.
This continued after the loss at a post-game press conference, too. Cam showed up in front of dozens of reporters with a sour look on his face, giving short responses to every question asked at a practically inaudible volume. And then, after just a few minutes, he stormed right off the stage in the middle of his Q&A session, putting an end to the presser prematurely. Yikes!
Of course, we understand how hard and frustrating this must have been for Cam, but part of being a quarterback and team leader also means having good sportsmanship and being able to lose gracefully. There are ways to be emotional about a loss without completely freaking out in front of millions of people! Hey, the guy is still young, and clearly has a long career ahead of him, so we don’t doubt that we’ll see him back in the big game again at some point in the future. Hopefully things work out better for him that time around, right!?
HollywoodLifers, do you think Cam was unsportsmanlike during the game? What do you think of his tantrum?
