Cam Newton has played only 2 NFL games (as a rookie) and has shown more spark than Alex has ever shown in several years. I'm sick of us coddling Alex and making excuses for his continued under-performance. He needs to be the leader this team needs, but the problem is...HE DOESN'T HAVE IT!! Sorry Harbaugh, I completely disagree with your optimism. Man, I wish you could make me eat my words, but I'm betting you won't.
