Foxford, Mass. – Cam Newton His first year with the New England Patriots has hit mostly a positive one, but after another disgusting performance, the loss to the Buffalo Bills dragged him into the middle of the third quarter, when he was out.
Newton was asked about a graphic on ESPN’s Monday Night football broadcast that showed him waking up at 4:20 a.m. every day, leaving his home at 4:30 and not resting until 11:30 p.m.
“This is my schedule for 90 percent of the time I’ve been here, so you can understand the frustration I felt when I had no effect because I’m sacrificing so much. You ‘re talking about a person who has not seen his children in three months,” Newton said.
Newton is playing with a minimum base salary of $ 1.05 million on a one-year contract. The deal includes offers and bonuses that will eventually increase its value by about 6 2.6 million.
On Monday night against the Bills, he passed 5-to-10 for 34 yards, while adding four russes for 24 yards, including a 9-yard touchdown in a rolling play.
With 8 minutes and 21 seconds left in the third quarter, coach Phil Belichick pulled him in, leading the bills 31-9.
“The game did a good job for us, I mean, it’s not a problem,” Belich said of his decision to return to second – quarterback. Jared Stidham. “We’re not very competitive in the game.”
Honestly for Newton, he threw a perfect downline strike to the wide receiver Tamier Byrd In the first drive of the game abandoned byrd. The play illustrates how the Patriots’ problems go far beyond Newton’s, as their wide and tight ends across the NFL this season are the least productive throughout the NFL.
But Newton also agreed that he could play better.
“It’s so frustrating, knowing what you can do, trusting yourself. It doesn’t show when you count too much,” he said.
Belichick said he has not finalized his quarterback plans for Sunday’s season final against the visiting New York Jets.
Commenting on Belich’s support for the position, Newton said: “The feeling is mutual. I’ll get better every week. I’m been very comfortable with this offense for the last week. Let’s see where I can get it.”
But his frustration became apparent late Monday night.
“As a trusted team player you first have to submit to power and know that coaches have to submit to what you are asked to do. It makes me feel like I did it. I’m not guilty. I’m. Now I’m more or less because, yes, I have sacrificed so much this year, ”he said.
“I mean, it hurts when you go home tonight, when you go home, when you start it for another week.”
