Patriots sign Cam Newton

Recommended Posts

If he is healthy this makes them contenders.  Conference still goes thru KC but Cam is a good QB when he is on his game.

I seen this coming a month ago because there was no way Belichick was tanking or thought he could win anything with Stidham.

Who ends the relationship first?  Cam or BB?

Odds are it doesn’t work but if Cam buys into what BB says they just may win the division. The media really hates Cam but some of it is deserved.  The female discussing NFL routes was a really dumb move.  BB will be able to take most of that on the chin with his notorious off put attitude.

I don't see this working out. Cam seems like a mismatch for the Pats. How they go from a cerebral pocket-passer in Tom Brady to a mobile health risk in Cam Newton seems like a complete 180. Belichick of course is good at game-planning to the strengths of his players, so maybe he will find something, but it won't matter if Cam gets injured.

Unfortunately, I can see BB and Josh McDaniels making this work very well with Cams skill-set... and I hate it.  :flaming:

 

But it all depends on Cam buying in and checking his ego at the door.  And if Cams' history tells us anything, he won't be able to do that.  So ultimately, I agree that this won't work.  Either Cam gets injured early, or his ego takes over once he starts having a little success.

 

Either way... gonna be an interesting season for the Pats and their haters!

I see it working out, Belichick is the GOAT and Cam is miles better than Stidham. I would take Brissett over Stidham.

No other team signed Cam, which tells you everything you need to know about him. In my opinion, he doesn't have much left if anything at all.

It could work well, but I have some doubts about him getting along with Mcdaniels.  We'll see.

If it works this could give them a lot of time to find a long term replacement for Brady.  Honestly Cam is still pretty young so he could be that replacement as well.

Also, can we talk about this 1-year contract is only worth "up to" 7.5 mil?

 

Like... how little of that is guaranteed?  And if he reaches ALL the incentives, he ONLY gets 7.5 mil?

 

Maybe someone with more knowledge can elaborate, but didn't Rivers get 20 mil guaranteed, and Brady get 15 mil guaranteed?  With incentives to make like 25 mil?

 

Cam has gotta be feelin some kinda way right now...  :hissy:  he's already going into this year with a bruised ego.  I can't imagine it's going to get better when he's forced into the "Patriot Way"...  talk about a ticking time bomb...  :bomb:

It could have workout better for them if they got JB in a trade... Cam just doesn't have much left.....Besides, Stidham is going to be the starter anyway which leave Cam guessing why he is not the starter...

You think Brissett is a better option than Cam?      I think BB knew better than that.   Cam could be good for the Patriots.   In that division, he is probably enough to win it.

The Pats have been switching over to more of a defense and running game kind of team over the past few seasons.

I agree. Pats seem very desperate. Cam is not a fit at all, very injury prone and an inaccurate passer. If this season does happen, the Pats are going to be awful and I will enjoy every second of it!

He didn't sell his soul to anyone. No one wanted Cam. He is well past his prime and injury prone.

They're getting nervous.  Settling for malcontents now.  Too bad Brisett's contract is so rich.  We could have gotten a nice pick otherwise.

We’re not in a better situation ourselves. We have a guy coming off of 20 interceptions. This Cam in NE may work out. He need to sit the year he got his shoulder surgery. He was rushed back to play. Cam also made it to a SB. Something Rivers has never done. So some of you need to watch the way to comment on a topic.

I think Rivers is washed too but Rivers at least played the season and was healthy. He is also a great fit for Reich's offense in many respects. The NE offense is pure hot garbage. Cam has none of the players he had in Carolina to be successful.

The coaching is far better in NE. Rivers also had far better talent to work with over the years than Cam. I’m not saying Rivers is washed, but I don’t think Cam is done either. Cam also was a league MVP. Again that’s something Rivers has never won.

If we are comparing careers, Rivers has been the better QB over a much longer period of time and for the most part free of serious injury.  It is sad but Rivers at 38 has more in the tank than Cam at 31 that is why nobody wanted Cam until June 28 and Rivers had a job for $25 mil as soon as FA began.

 

In terms of coaching, Rivers is a far better fit with Reich than BB is with Newton especially given the putrid talent around Cam.

Again Philip has the numbers, years and familiar with Reich. Glad you said that. He doesn’t have the MVP and SB appearance. We now have one guy coming off 20 interceptions making 25 million. Add in the fact our backup is making 15 million. They just got a guy who was a league MVP for vet minimum. BB has the first ranked defense out of that putrid talent. Ballard is building a roster as well. I hope Philip can come though. Just waiting for it to be proven. NE to me got the better deal as it stands.

Who cares about the past? Newton's MVP /SB season was 5 years ago and he has been injury prone and a shell of himself since then which is why no one wanted him until June 28 on an incentive laden deal. I think Rivers is declining as well but not nearly as much as Newton has and he has the better fit with his coach and the better overall roster. NEs pass defense is very good but they lost 2 of their starting LBs and their overall front is not very good. And their offense is complete junk and that is what Newton has to work with.

Ok so who cares about Rivers past. What we both know it’s the guy threw 20 interceptions last season. I’m not defending NE because like you I hate them as well. But they’re in a far better QB situation at the moment. The money proves it and also the players. I think we were the only team to want Rivers as well.

Yeah. I don't like the 20 picks either. I am trying to be optimistic that Reich will reign him and focus more on the run.

 

I really don't think NE is in a better situation. Newton has serious injury issues and has not been a good play for several seasons. I think they signed him more as insurance as they only have Stidham and Hoyer. They easily have the worst QB room in the league. The Colts are better with Rivers and Brissett IMO. Not sure it will be enough to get us where we need to go -the playoffs but Newton for sure is not leading the Pats anywhere.

Since the Colts had the cap room, the money doesn't matter much.   Rivers has been and will be the better QB option.   I think it was a good signing for the Pats.  BB can make the offense work.  Cams completion % issues will be an obstacle.  It's not like Rivers has been trending down through the years.   Last season wasn't great, but 2018 he put up MVP type numbers.

Now Richard Sherman is complaining about Newton having to sign for basically only the vet minimum.  Know where this is headed.  LOL.

 

Not unexpected.  A guy with a 'tude like Sherman sticks up for a guy with a somewhat similar 'tude in Newton, thinking that somehow people like him get treated in a bad way not because they objectively deserve it time and time again, but for some other reason.  LOL.

 

Wonder if he would ever stick up for a guy with a personality like Tarik Glenn?

I didn't hear him say anything about Joe Flacco or Ryan Fitzpatrick.  

 

I was a bit surprised at the amount Cam signed for.   In the Patriots defense, they had all the leverage.  Other teams were not interested in Cam.   The Pats waited it out and offered a lowball offer and Cam took it because there were no options.  If he has a good season and the Pats do well, Cam may make more big $$.   No whammy, No whammy, Big Bucks!

Makes too much sense for the Patriots. We saw this coming eventually. Surprised it took so long to be honest. 
 

If Cam is as healthy as reports claim, he should have no problem assuming the starting job over Stidham.

Desperate?  Paying a guy the league minimum plus incentives is desperate?

 

I guarantee that the Patriots finish with a better record than the Colts.

I see them both at 10-6. Picking up Cam Newton will win the division for them now. With Stidham I had 8-8. Cam's only issue is can he stay healthy?

    • Correct.   i don’t think Luck is EVER coming back. Nor do I want him back nor should the team want him back. He left this team high and dry less than10 days before the start of the regular season. If I was an owner or a coach, I wouldn’t want him back unless there were some major stipulations added to his contract. Such as 100 percent reimbursement for all salaries paid from the time he was drafted if he were to retire again too close to the season. Put a cut off date around March 30th. Anything after that, he has to reimburse as stated above. Then and only then would I take him back
    • He's got plenty of money.   I think the only way he would come back is if he had the itch to play and thought he could win.   Maybe if Rivers and the Colts have a good season the chance at winning would be there.   Very doubtful that he ever plays again.   I'd give it a 10% chance.
    • You are reading it incorrectly.  He is saying that he said he was the first to say that Luck's injury (shoulder) was due to a snowboarding accident and everyone laughed at him.  He then says that he said, 3 weeks before Luck retired, that Luck was going to retire.  
    • Snowboarding is an expensive recreational activity - weed is costly.
    • Reich intends to pit the two against one another in what many would consider Vinatieri's specialty: high-stress situations. The Colts coach explained that he will do his best to fabricate those situations during and after practice. One can be sure that without the added test of preseason games, the kickers' performance during these high-stress situations will go a long way in determining who wins the competition.   “They'll get all of their normal routines," Reich said. "But as a team, we'll create more team atmosphere, team kicking drills that will be heightened and weighted more heavily in the kicking competition."  Though Reich didn’t submit a “favorite” to win the battle, McLaughlin surely has the leg up in that he’s a somewhat proven NFL commodity. Last season, the undrafted free agent performed admirably in what amounted to a four-game audition with the Colts after Vinatieri succumbed to injury. Arriving in Indianapolis in the high-pressure role of replacing the kicker many consider the greatest of all time, McLaughlin drilled 5-of-6 field goals and all 11 of his extra points in those games. His performance in Vinatieri’s stead earned him a one-year contract with the Colts immediately following the season.    Of course, the man they call “Hot Rod” brings an impressive resume to the battle as well. During four years at SEC powerhouse Georgia, Blankenship was a model of accuracy and consistency. He connected on all 200 of his extra points and finished his Bulldog career an 82.5% field goal kicker and the school’s all-time leading scorer.  For his efforts -- and to keep him away from other teams -- the Colts handed Blankenship a $20,000 signing bonus, a hefty number among undrafted free agents. Despite McLaughlin’s incumbent status, Blankenship’s price tag and Reich comments foretell would should be an equal and open competition for the job.    https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/nfl/colts/2020/07/29/colts-vinatieri-era-indy-seemingly-over-mclaughlin-blankenship-battle-job/5536851002/
