He got hurt for like a week but it wasn't so bad as to take him out of the competition entirely, seems like a stupid take. They seemed to be having a pretty legitimate shared rotation for maybe one week at the beginning and then it was all Cam.He said Stiddy would start, doesn't seem like he knows what he's talking about.
Also did I miss this big injury that took Stiddy out of competition. Cam was the QB1 the moment he signed. I know he missed some time but Injury or we had nothing to do with it.
“The bottom line is (Jarrett) Stidham got hurt, Cam got in there and they are paying him no money whatsoever,” Esiason said
Pats Twitter has been this stupid all off-season as well. No one is saying we're better off with Cam but the fit is obvious.
It is but isn't that why we're focused on being a physical, bully of a team. As opposed to asking Stid to work with that very group?He is certainly entitled to his opinion and he does know football. However I think this is as unpredictable as it gets. I think the problem is not with Cam, but with the WR' and TE group that has been assembled to support him. Its an extremely inexperienced and unproven supporting cast that make "first year Cam" a risky bet.

I notice a lot of these "bad fit" takes boil down to saying Cam won't be as good at what Brady did in this offense as Brady was. Well yeah duh... but the NE offense has always been about molding itself to highlight its parts and Cam will most certainly do things in this offense Brady never did at all. Apples to oranges to an extent.

Cam came from a system is Carolina that ran versions of the EP. Bill definitely isn't tossing away his blueprint, just adapting. And yes Newton's price & circumstance had a lot to do with why he here's but the fit is obvious imo. Esp when you look at the roster and it's strengths/weaknesses.is the fit obvious?
Bill has inserted a run first/ career 60% passer to run a passing attack that has thrived from quick read/ high efficiency/ low risk passes within the confines of a highly choreographed system.
Maybe Bill can teach an old dog new tricks
Maybe Bill has simply decided to toss away his blueprint for success and let Cam free wheel for as long as the QB’s body holds up to the inevitable pounding this style of QB subjects himself to.
From my lofty vantage point, the only fit I see is the one year/ low budget contract that secured NE a stop-gap starter during a cap crunched season
While you are surely right re most media, I’m pretty sure CC has been a Brady & NE supporter for most of the last two decades.Colin Cowturd writes that the Pats are a 5-11 team and BB is tanking the season on purpose. Lots of media guys with axes to grind from the past 20 years are now bundling wood around the stake they intend to set on fire this season.

Newton is known acting up if things go south. Were still in the honeymoon phase right now and all you see and hear from Cam is love for BB and the Patriots. Lose a few game in succession due to mistake prone QB play and Boston fans will turn on you like a snake. BB starts looking at other options for QB at practice. I will not be shocked to see Stidham starting at some point this season.
The QB that has to follow Tom Brady is almost in a no win situation.
