Cam Newton: Patriots are a “match made in heaven for me”

Cam Newton‘s first game with the Patriots is less than a week away and there will be plenty of people watching to see how he fares in his new offense.

Questions about Newton’s fit have been bouncing around since he signed with the team in July and Newton said on WEEI Monday that he “didn’t know what to expect” when he arrived in New England. A full accounting of the move won’t happen until the season is in the books, but the quarterback said he feels right at home at this point.

“Honestly, it’s been a match made in heaven for me just knowing I am at a place where everything is pulling in the same direction and everything is geared towards winning,” Newton said. “Coming from a person that has won at all levels, I feel as if that if I do the things the right way, trusting the same people who have gotten me to this point and trust their coaching, I think this is something that when you look at an opportunity in a timely manner, it can be accomplished.”

One of the things Newton was unsure about was how he’d get along with head coach Bill Belichick, but he said that “every type of stereotype that I had about coach Belichick changed the day I talked to him” and that it has been exciting to play for him. More excitement in the regular season should dispel any remaining doubts about the Newton/Patriots marriage.

  1. Wait until you get benched or you toss a few picks and BB rips into you.
    You will sulk on the sidelines with that towel over your head and that will infuriate BB
    That me first nonsense will not work with BB

  2. This feels so much like Belichick starting over with Vinny Testaverte. Both #1 overall picks and big guys who could run and throw.

  3. Been pleasantly surprised by Cam Newton so far but then again, it’s just practice.

    I want to see how he handles adversity against a tough schedule. I’m optimistic that Cam will succeed.

  4. Players always like playing for Coach Belichick. It’s G.M. Belichick that some ex players had issues with.

    Anyone that’s been paying attention to the Pats for the past 20 years knows BB never rips into anybody. MY guess is Cam will be invigorated knowing he doesn’t have to win every game through individual heroics.

    The team will be worth a watch. The haters reactions will be worth the wait.

    Not true – at all – BB rips into EVERYBODY! Not even Brady was excluded. He just doesn’t do it through the media like some coaches.
