The full impact of the coronavirus pandemic continues to be felt throughout the world of sport. On Monday, it was learned that 14 players and coaches with the Miami Marlins tested positive for COVID-19, resulting in the cancellation of multiple baseball games.
And between Monday night and Tuesday morning, five Patriots players, including tackle Marcus Cannon and linebacker Dont’a Hightower, have chosen not to participate in the 2020 NFL season.
However, the sports leagues have continued to move forward, with the Red Sox losing to the Mets on Monday 7-4. Boston has now delivered seven runs in three consecutive games.
Lacrosse comparison of Bill Belichick for Cam Newton: While there aren’t many scenarios where Bill Belichick seems calm in an interview, it’s generally safe to assume that most of them involve lacrosse.
Known for being Belichick’s other sports love, lacrosse is something the Patriots coach pays close attention to. And in a recent interview with NBC during Premier League Lacrosse coverage, Belichick showed his deep insight.
At the end of an interview that covered various lacrosse-themed topics, Belichick was asked to compare newly signed quarterback Cam Newton to a current PLL player. In 2019, he was asked a lacrosse-themed question about Tom Brady.
“Cam Newton looks like Myles Jones to me,” said Belichick. “He is fast. He is big. He would be a tough guy to deal with. “
Jones, 27, is 6 feet 5 inches and weighs 260 pounds. He was an All-American three times at Duke University, and was the No. 1 overall pick for Major League Lacrosse in 2016.
“He could run for them,” added Belichick de Jones. “He could go through those stick controls, and he would have a hard, stick work, a hard overhead shot, so I think those tall, long guys really do have a huge advantage of being able to change the angle of their shots. ” and still be able to get through some guys. “
