Cam Newton Fumbles Game Away In The Red Zone, Pats Lose Fifth Straight

The New England Patriots were well on their way to a game-winning drive in the red zone with just 35 second left, until Cam Newton fumbled the game away. Fumbling on a scramble down 24-21 with with the ball inside the 20 is not what Bill Belichick was looking for. That giveaway locked in a fifth straight loss for the Pats and solidifies this Newton-Belichick experiment as a disaster.

Seems like yesterday when Tom Brady was making these game-winning drives in Buffalo look easy. We gave the Belichick-led defense all the credit and constantly claimed Brady’s late heroics were a product of a failing division. Now, Cam Newton in those same scenarios makes what Brady did for almost two decades seem hard. Turns out you can’t swap any quarterback into New England’s “system” and make them an all-pro. The system now looks more like Tom Brady’s presence as the Bucs trend as one of the best teams in the NFL.

A bad look for Cam Newton, who came into the ’20-21 season looking for redemption. How can any coach believe they can get Cam to show out for them when he can’t get it done in New England with arguably the greatest coach of all-time in his ear? Newton’s agent has a ton of explaining to do when this year’s over. Let’s leave it at that.

Kind of sad watching Newton collapse after the COVID diagnosis, because we were really rooting for him.

  1. Like i have said previously i like Cam not sure why lol but i do i just think he isn’t that good he may end up somewhere but hes not a game changer certainly not now.

  2. Cam Newton is not that good of a quarterback. Even at Auburn he was a marginal QB, but was a big body who was hard to bring down when he ran the ball. That was his game and it doesn’t translate well to the NFL. The fact that Belichick can’t get him to perform just validates this.

    • Matthew, I have never thought much of Scam as a player, even going back to his paid college days at Auburn.

      That feeling was driven home in SB 50 when he fumbled with a couple of minutes to go with the game on the line and chose to not go after the ball, later revealing that he was concerned that he might hurt his valuable self.

      But Belichick certainly knew, deep in his soul, that Scam has no heart and zero interest in putting the team ahead of himself. For damn sure, Tom Brady would have gone after that fumble. Brady at 55 would be more of a qb than Scamis, has been, or ever will be!

  3. Not true to say that a good QB cannot win in Belichick’s system. Matt Cassel went 11-5. Not taking anything away from Brady, but Cam Newton is not even an average NFL QB, much less a good one.

    This whole Cam Newton play was intended to get the Pats a top 10 pick, and its working perfectly. I hope this humbling experience will help Cam as a person. He needs to learn that being a great professional is about more than outfits and making tik tok videos.

    My personal choice for the Pats, get a top 10 pick, trade it for 32 year old Matt Stafford and rescue him from the shit show that is the Detroit Lions. Stafford is a very good QB and would thrive in New England. Probably wins a super bowl there. Why would Detroit do it? They would have two top 10 draft picks they could rebuild with,. They are going nowhere as it is, fire Patricia, hire a real football coach, draft your QB of the future and the best Left Tackle in the draft and build around those guys.
