Cam Newton showed his lack of leadership by the way he spoke to the media in the previous weeks. Is it the team that can't produce, Cam, or both?The Carolina Panthers haven't had one single game with a rusher with over 100 yards. The defense ranks 19th in both rush and pass defense. Plus, players on the defensive side, like Chris Gamble, have been sidelined with injuries. These are just a few of the reasons why the Carolina Panthers have problems this season.What has Cam Newton done? Cam hasn't addressed this to the media nor his locker room in the right way when he said, "I'm going to leave this room and bring in a suggestion box." Quarterbacks like Tom Brady and Peyton Manning take ownership in tough situations.I've got five suggestion for Cam.1)  Forget about the past because you can't win all the time.2)  Take responsibilty for your teammates, even when it's not all your fault.3)  Show better body chemistry like you did at Auburn to make your teammates feel supported.4)  Let your team around you make some plays.5)  Don't talk about the defense after a Bears game.If these suggestion don't work, you could improve moral by inviting your teammates to a Halloween party. You guys could dress up as real NFL football players. Sweetheart's Scary StuffIs this guy Cam related to Olivia Newton-John? If so, guess he could dance his way out trick-or-treating and be a T-Bird from Rydell High School.Anywho, all this talk about this suggestion box. I love making suggestions and love it even more when they are followed. Therefore, I'm making a few to you, Stuart.And it goes a little something like this, let's do it...1) Stop being judgmental. Cam is not Tom Baby Brady nor is he Patty Cake Peyton.2) Well, there is no "I" in team, however, there is a "me". (yes there is, look closer)3) How can you have the audacity to tell this Cam character to take responsibility for his team, you don't even support YOUR team... Mr. Party Crasher!4) When you have a player with the name Chris Gamble, aren't you taking a chance rather he can play or not?5) Take a note from our friend Disco Devin and just chill out !Sincerely,Sweetheart
