    Newton is OVERRATED. Patriots finish 7 and 9

    Look how injuries have increased since the NFLPA started negotiating downwards on the preseason workouts. If the players support that, that’s fine, but really think the net result is negative.

    Cam is the guy case closed Bellichek not going to start a rookie despite all the calls to do so Mac Jones is not ready for the NFL you can only protect a rookie so much those defenses will eat Mac Jones alive he don't have the experience see you next year Mac maybe

    ninjamaster802Пре месец

    I think still newton starting they pay him big! He have 1 year deal! So I don’t see mac jones starting.. because he still train him he still developing... maybe they let Mac jones play in 4th round.. that’s my guess.

    Cams gonna ball out mac is 22 he can sit bak for a year learn everything and get ready to roll in take over next year. Would be nice to have cam retire with a superbowl

  8. Michael Riddell

    Michael RiddellПре месец

    I am a huge lifelong Pats fan and there is no chance Cam "balls out". He has a slow delivery, he is inaccurate, he can't read a blitz, he has poor arm strength, he has lost a step, and he is no longer elusive. On top of all of that, he is injury prone. He simply is not an NFL QB any more, even if they surround him with more talent this year (which they have)

    Cam had one of the worst seasons a QB has had in 10 years last season. He is washed washed

  12. Antonio Caballero

    Antonio CaballeroПре месец

    If cam plays anything like he did last year and Mac doesn't start by week 10, then he's a bust

  13. John O'Neil

    John O'NeilПре месец

    Wasn't Chris Simms the IDIOT who told the world his Boyfriend Kyle Shanahan was picking Mack Jones with the third pick in the draft?? He's an IDIOT (just listen to him!!)!!! If his last name was Smith he wouldn't even have a job!!!

    I think it's Cam, super Cam baby. If it's not him, it's Mac, and if it's not Mac, It will be Jarrett for sure..lol

  19. Edward Nevarez

    I think cam would make a better TE than a QB

  20. Kevykev388

    Kevykev388Пре месец

    I agree. With his overall size he oughta be a deadly redzone threat. There's practically nothing anyone can do to him pre-catch without drawing a flag lol

  21. Honest Abe

    Honest AbeПре месец

    I get critized for trashing black media like Marcus Spears, Stephen A Smith, Emmanuel Acho, Rodney Harrison, Louis Riddick for their poor analysis of Cam Newton. They need to come watch how real analysis is done. Black media needs to do a better job in analyzing black players.

  22. craig walrath

    craig walrathПре месец

    Most QBs don't play a whole season. With one more game it's even more likely that Jones will play a couple of games but Cam is the man and he will have a great season.

  23. Kevykev388

    Kevykev388Пре месец

    @Antonio Caballero and still won 7 games. About 4 more than expected. Can't wait to see how awful he is this year with slight upgrades to WRs and TE. Along with the defense potentially returning to top 10 or top 5

  24. Antonio Caballero

    Antonio CaballeroПре месец

    Cam was AWFUL last season.

  25. Choco Latte

    I hope not. Cam is the guy? How did last year go?

    Cam should go to the Jags, Trevor Lawrence with 2 Power QBs coming out of pistol sets. Good luck trying to figure that out.

  30. Patrick Lemire (Sound On Sound)

    Patrick Lemire (Sound On Sound)Пре месец

    It will be interesting to see how quickly MJ’s supposedly photographic memory picks up the playbook. Cam looked like a corpse after the first month. NE are not going to put up anything like a repeat

  31. Antonio Caballero

    Antonio CaballeroПре месец

    People keep saying that Cam was great the first few games. He did well because they ran power run formation and Cam was able to get wide open passes. After that, teams gameplanned for the run option and Cam couldn't make tight window passes It wasn't COVID, it was teams gameplanned better for Cam

  32. D22 Williams.22

    I'm a big fan of mac jones but I'm in no big hurry to bemch newton

  33. Ben Crawford Books

    Ben Crawford BooksПре месец

    Cam's NEVER been hurt running the football. He was hurt in the pocket. But no one has ever hit Cam and took him out of the game. If anything, he probably put some guys out. He'll be fine.

  34. Papa T

    Papa TПре месец

    Did I just hear Simms say Cam Newton played well last year? Give me a break, Cam cost the Patriots at least two games with his crappy play.

  35. Honest Abe

    Honest AbeПре месец

    @Papa T , LOL, funny how Edelman, Harry, and all the offensive players had career best games with Newton, not Brady passing them the ball. Just because they had more doesnt mean they were any good. The offensive weapons sucked !!!

  36. Magnificent

    MagnificentПре месец

    @Honest Abe Patriots were dead last in the league in separation in 2019 they were top 10 this year...

  37. Papa T

    Papa TПре месец

    @Honest Abe they had more RBs, TEs and WRs on the roster than they did in 2019 hence more weapons. I should have said there were just more of them. Tom made stars out of no-name guys and Cam is WAY overrated.

  38. Honest Abe

    Honest AbeПре месец

    @Papa T , you are smoking crack. The weapons were much worse with Newtoon than Brady. Top WR edelman was out most of the season. Top defender hightower was out all season. How was this team better with Newton than Brady? And the schedule was tougher with Newton too. You are clearly an idiot !

  40. Jamie Hoxter

    Jamie HoxterПре месец

    Im a Patriots fan this kid played on an allstar college team. Drew Lock, has way more upside. Jones has no quickness no speed no Athleticism. Has quick release & a good decision maker. Bill said brady didnt make the team he just didnt want some other team to have him. Matt will be on the team rather he makes the team or not. Cant wait for preseason. Stidham. Is motivated to stay #2.

  41. Magnificent

    MagnificentПре месец

    @Jamie Hoxter lol, Trask???

  42. tsar bamba

    tsar bambaПре месец

    @Jamie Hoxter I think you're going to be pleasantly surprised. Having NFL receivers is great and all, but he got them the ball on time and in the exact right spot. Made extremely catchable passes that helped the receivers not break their stride, etc. He and Lawrence are the most likely to succeed of the top 5 imo.

  43. Jamie Hoxter

    Jamie HoxterПре месец

    @tsar bamba I'm not happy with the pick. I wanted trask but n later round. Wanted a o lineman. Lost a good starter in Free agency. I like the kid but 1 out 4 qbs taken in top 10 become that guy. Out of the 4 who's going to be better? Look at the Brady 6. Only chad pennington was good til he busted that shoulder. Brady turned out to be unbelievable. We'll see hope I m wrong

  44. tsar bamba

    tsar bambaПре месец

    Jones ran a faster 40 than mahomes. He isn't an improviser like mahomes, but he's not slow.

  45. LulaMash

    LulaMashПре месец

    "What's your over under?" As soon as I heard that, I was thinking, there's no way Chris Simms answers this correctly, I don't think he even knows what that means.

  46. Peter Morrissette

    Peter MorrissetteПре месец

    Over under at 17 starts? I’ll take the under any day

  47. Timothy Norat

    Timothy NoratПре месец

    I think he probably will be. In fact I expect he will have a bounce back year and I think Mac Jones will be a disappointment.

  48. Cjballin

    CjballinПре месец

    All this depends on how Mac does. Chris saying he has to learn football is incorrect. He has to learn a playbook, which he has already shown all the skills necessary to do quickly. His raw ability to read what the defense gives, and make quick decisions based on it is something Cam doesn’t bring, and something that is needed. Best case scenario is that he is too good not to get a shot. It will be interesting.

  49. Cjballin

    CjballinПре месец

    @Honest Abe Cam’s been in the league since 2011 and can’t make simple throws or go through his progressions, your point is?

  50. Honest Abe

  52. Edward Lynch

    I agree. And i dint think id down him. As a panther fan he gave everything to carolina. And almost won a super bowl. He ran into a juggernaut defense and his coaching was awful.

    If Bill don't play Jones, A REAL QB, and tries to ride Scam then they're an 8-9 team at best. Scam is one of the biggest frauds to ever play the position. He's had two good seasons, the rest is average at best!

  60. Honest Abe

    Newton is a HOF'er

  61. Christopher Hermanowski

    Christopher HermanowskiПре месец

    They have been planning this since the beginning of the off season. Think about it bill went to one pro day and that was mac’s. They already had a playbook in plan.

  62. xConceptz1

    xConceptz1Пре месец

    Mike Florio just explained how the NFL is fixed... if you would call a penalty on a hit of a smaller qb, then that same hit on a big qb should be penalized. Brady gets breathed on, 15yd penalty. Big Ben or Cam Newton take a blatantly dirty hit or hit wayyy after the play, nah they’re big guys they can take it. NFL equals No Fairness League

  63. Bryce Peters

    Bryce PetersПре месец

    Because big guys try to overpower defenders. And defenders have to right away to do the overpowering. Brady buckles at the knees before a shot even comes close to landing on him.

  64. Die Lawn

    Only reason Simms is saying Mac Jones won’t play and Cam will all year is cause he got totally played in the draft

    Belichick will coach jones harder than any player hes ever had.. He will make him crawl through broken glass to prove himself to the team he's ready.. Bill knows this kid can take hard coaching and he will have to prove his mental toughness.. Stidham might surprise everyone as the number two who may well be alot better than we expect.. Jones will be redshirted

  88. Bryce Peters

    Bryce PetersПре месец

    We all saw what Stidham can do. He is at best a backup qb that can hold on to lead if the qb goes down mid game.
