It takes a certain type of person to withstand the pressure of being an NFL quarterback.

It takes even more to deal with expectations once proving yourself to be among the elite.

Unfortunately, there have been some not-so-impressive leaders under center throughout NFL history. Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers is looking like the next signal-caller in line.

Back in September, according to the Associated Press via, Panthers' receiver Steve Smith stated:

"I said, 'Get up and learn from this,' " Smith said. "I watched DA (Anderson) and Jimmy (Clausen) observe from the sidelines the last 20-something games and try to get mental reps. This is an opportunity for you to get some mental reps. Don't just sit on the bench and sulk. I know you feel bad, but that isn't going to help us."

It's the second straight year teammates have questioned Newton's demeanor on the sideline.

This is just one example no fan wants to see from their team's quarterback. Along with Newton, let's see who else made the list.
