New England Patriots Super Bowl Champs

Newton May Have Mastered the “Patriot Way,” But Is It Enough to Be the Starter at QB?

If there is one thing that New England Patriot fans can get excited about for the 2020 season it’s the fact that things are going to be different, and change isn’t always bad.

One player that has the fans excited is new quarterback Cam Newton, who was basically left on the trash heap by the Carolina Panthers.

The former number one pick has a resume that has Pats fans ready to go out and buy his jersey already, but it’s probably better to spend some cash at online casinos before you commit fully to Newton.

Part of the reason that Newton was available so late in free agency was injury. The former MVP just has not been able to stay healthy, and that’s a huge key to the success of the Patriots if they are going to commit to having Newton under center.

CBS Sportsline wrote on Thursday about Newton already having mastered the “Patriot Way,” which basically means saying a lot but at the same time saying nothing.

If you want to see the supreme leader in the NFL when it comes to the “Patriot Way,” just look at head coach Bill Belichick.

For years, Belichick has gotten in front of the media and spoken, and it’s amazing how many times reporters walk away chuckling, knowing they got absolutely nothing out of the press conference.

Here’s what Newton had to say recently, and you can feel Belichick’s “Patriot Way” attitude coming out.

“No disrespect to nobody, but I’m extremely ecstatic, but I’m not talking,” Newton said when asked for comment.

“Who knows?” Newton replied.

Newton then ended with a simple “Go Pats.”

If that’s not the “Patriot Way,” then I don’t know what is. It’s the attitude of being able to say things without giving billboard material to other teams, and the quarterback seems already to have that down pat.

So is Newton the player that showed off amazing skills leading the Panthers to the Super Bowl just a few seasons ago?

Or is he a player that is just trying to hang on for one or two more seasons, and one last payday?

If Newton stays motivated, he can be a great player, but early success in both training camp and the preseason is going to go a long way in making Newton the player he was.

He might have the “Patriot Way” already down, but once Newton gets on the field, it might be a very different story.

Only time will tell.
