Cam Newton Tweets He’s Ready For Game Day, Tells Media His Excitement Level Is “On 1,000”Stew Milne - USA TODAY Sports

New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton is more than ready for his fresh new start in Foxboro.

On his Twitter this week, Newton tweeted out a photograph of Gillette Stadium with a message in his trademark font that simply read “ready for gameday.”

Speaking with the media on Thursday, Newton had the following to say about his mood heading into the season opener.

“Excitement level is on 1,000,” Newton said. “I’m excited, happy. Just to get back into the rhythm of game week — the preparation, the little nuggets that you can often forget.

“You have to remember, I’ve been away from football, really, for a full year. I haven’t really had this whole process for a long time now, so being around, taking notes, watching film, finding out about different players each and every day, locking in. [I’m] excited about the game plan and more excited about just trying to get in a routine with the newness of the playcalling, the coaches and even the players.”

Entering his tenth pro season, but first with a new team since his drafting, Newton was asked if he still feels nerves before the first game.

He provided a gem of an answer Patriots fans will surely love.

“I don’t get butterflies,” Newton said with a smile. “I give ’em.”

“I’ve been playing in a lot of games in my life, a lot of opening days, to a lot of impactful, meaningful games, and at this particular point in my career I know how to control myself,” he said.

Heading into Sunday, Newton has lost his last eight regular season starts dating back to 2018, but hasn’t started since week two of last season due to injuries, he’ll look to start 2020 off right and break that streak with an early divisional win.
