Cam Newton: I’ve Sacrificed So Much

Cam Newton venting his frustration has been a regular occurrence in his first season as the Patriots’ starting quarterback.

He was in a despondent mood once again following New England’s humbling 9 – 38 Monday Night loss to the Bills.

Cam Newton was replaced by second year QB Jarrett Stidham with 8 minutes left in the third quarter. In spite of this, Bill Belichick said Newton wasn’t the issue.

The 31 year old revealed postgame that he’s been working so hard, he hasn’t seen his kids in three months.

In the gargantuan battle to fill Tom Brady’s boots, Cam Newton has been waking up at 4am and not going home until 11pm. Considering he’s also battled with Covid-19 this year, his lack of reward is understandably frustrating.

“That’s been my schedule for 90% of the time I’ve been here, so you can kind of understand the frustration I do have when I don’t have the outcome, because I’m sacrificing so much. You’re talking to a person who hasn’t seen his kids in three months,” Newton said.

“Obviously, the contract is what it is. Submitting myself to this team is something I’ve been doing since day one. Being accessible. Yeah, it’s frustrating. It makes you mad.”

Newton finished with 5-of-10 passing for 34 yards against the Buffalo Bills. He also rushed four times for 24 yards including a 9 yard touchdown.

“It makes you angry knowing that to be a trusted teammate you first have to submit to authority and submit to what the coaches are asking you to do. I feel like I have done that. I’m not in the place of blame. I’m more or less venting right now because, yeah, I’ve sacrificed so much this year,” he said.

“I mean, it hurts when you have the outing that you have tonight, just to go home, then start it over for a whole another week.”
