Cam Newton Put on Blast
The New England Patriots fell to 2-4 after Cam Newton threw for 98 yards and had three interceptions during the game with the San Francisco 49ers. In the fourth quarter, Newton was replaced by Jarrett Stidham.
Jeff Garcia, who is a studio analyst working at NBC Sports Bay Area, made it clear that he felt like Cam Newton’s outfit choice before the game didn’t make sense considering the way he entered the game. Before the game, Newton only had two touchdowns and a total of four interceptions.
Garcia went on a rant stating his stats before Sunday’s game and went on to talk about how all he did during the game was throw three more interceptions. He mentioned that there’s nothing good going his way after being taken out of the game during the second half. Garcia doesn’t believe Newton should be dressing this way and bringing more attention to him if he’s not going to do something good on the field.
Not Meeting People’s Expectations
The video of Jeff Garcia putting Cam Newton on blast was originally posted to Twitter, but it has been taken down. In the video, Garcia also added that he’s only speaking from what he’d seen and heard from Newton as he’d talked on the podium and how it didn’t translate to him being that guy.
Cam Newton was even compared to Joe Namath, an NFL Hall of Famer, who used to wear fur coats both before and after games.
