WHY THE PATRIOTS NEED TO KEEP CAM
The Patriots organization seems to love Cam Newton. He appears to be a great teammate and leader. Personally I think they should offer him a multi-year deal with some attractive incentives.
I have some thoughts about Cam Newton and a newly available NFL quarterback. You should read them.
HE'S NOTHING WITHOUT TOM BRADY
When you've had the luxury of having Tom Brady as your quarterback for most of your coaching career, you can't help but look good. Take the future hall of famer away, and suddenly you look look pretty pedestrian. Some might go so far as to say, "you suck".
Although it's been a while since the Dolphins have had a winning record, the Patriots have still had their fair share of trouble beating them. The last time the Patriots swept the Dolphins was in 2016, which is also the last time the Dolphins had a winning record (10-6).
After 14 minutes of miserable football Thursday night, it looked like the Patriots were going to be right back in the game with a pick 6 by rookie Myles Bryant. A quick review took the points off the board and put the offense on the field. What happened 3 plays later was not what any New England fan wanted to see. Instead of it becoming a one score game, the Patriots were down 17-0. This got me thinking (again), "How often do we not score after a takeaway?"
