Vents after New England Patriots’ Cam Newton loss

FOXB OUG, MASS. – Why Newton hit a positive wire in his first year with the New England Patriots, but after another disappointing performance, in which he was pulled to the middle in the third quarter of the loss to the Buffalo Bills, he discovered it.

Newton was asked about a graphic in ESPN’s Monday Night Football broadcast that showed him waking up at 4:20 a.m. every morning, leaving his home at 4:30 a.m. and not retiring for the night until 11:30 p.m.

“I’ve been on a schedule for 90 percent of the time I’ve been here, so you can kind of understand the frustration you feel when the result doesn’t come, because I’m sacrificing so much. You’re talking.” Who haven’t seen their babies in three months, ”Newton said.

“Naturally, the contract is what it is. Submitting myself to this team is something I’m doing one day already. Access being accessible. Yeah, that’s frustrating. It drives you crazy.”

Newton plays on a one-year deal with a minimum base salary of 1.05 million. The deal includes incentives and bonuses that will ultimately increase its value by about 6.2 million.

On Monday night against Bill, he completed a 5-10-pass through 34 yards, while adding four runs for 24 yards, including a 9-yard touchdown on the playoffs.

Coach Bill Belichick left him 8 minutes 21 seconds into the third quarter, leading Bill 31-9.

“Kame did a good job for us. I mean it wasn’t a problem,” Belichick said of his decision to turn to second-year quarterback Jarrett Stidham. “We weren’t very competitive in the game.”

In fairness to Newton, he threw a full downfield strike to wide receiver Damier Bird on the first drive of the game canceled by Bird. The play sheds light on how the Patriots ’issues move beyond Newton himself, as his season and tight end are becoming the NFL’s least productive this season.

But Newton admitted he could play better.

“It’s very frustrating, knowing what you’re capable of, trusting yourself. It’s not shown when it counts the most.”

Belichick said he has not set his quarterback plans for the season final against visiting New York Jets on Sunday.

Regarding Belichick’s support on the issue, Newton said: “Feelings are reciprocal. I’ll be better every week, in this crime I can be more comfortable last week than I can possibly be. Let’s see where I get it.”

But his frustration was evident late Monday night.

“He gets angry at you knowing that to be a reliable team player you first have to submit to the authority and do what the coach tells you to do. I think I did it. I’m not to blame. That’s less venting because, yes, I’ve sacrificed a lot this year, ’he said.

“I mean, it hurts when you have tonight, just go home, then start it for another week.”
