Veteran quarterback Cam Newton is fed up with all the questions he receives from reporters. Fans and analysts have discussed the battle of signal-signal callers. The regular season will start in a week and head coach Bill Belichick will have to make a decision on his starting quarterback. Both Newton and rookie Mac Jones saw action in Game 1 of the preseason. They were great. Things will get a different turn in a week.
Newton can’t say much about the next starting quarterback in New England. Belichick hasn’t said a thing about his big decision. Well, the 2015 NFL MVP is sure fed up with all the questions he has received lately.
When asked about the situation in New England, Newton got a bit snarky. Myles Simmons of Pro Football Talk has more on this:
“Y’all sitting up here asking silly questions to me and I’m looking at y’all with the same thing. I don’t know what y’all want me to say…You know, you know that. You know he hasn’t said that, so for you to just ask the question, it is what it is.”
Cam Newton to get more questions from reporters
Well, Newton made a good point. Maybe he got a little frustrated due to the great debut of his younger teammate. Jones was impressive in the preseason opener and Newton saw all that.
The Patriots selected Jones in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft. He will probably be the franchise quarterback for the Patriots. The former Alabama quarterback was 13-19 for 87 yards and Newton went 4-7 for 49 yards in less run than his younger rival.
Belichick has enough time to pick the right signal-caller for his new-look roster. Drew Bledsoe would love to see Newton lead the team. The former Patriot took a step back and gave Tom Brady the lead a couple of decades ago. But, Bledsoe believes that Jones should sit on the sidelines this year and learn more from his teammates. Let’s see how will Belichick handle this situation in New England. It’s an important season for everyone.
