The Patriots’ Next Diamond in the Rough: Jeff Thomas

Reading Time: 2 minutesWe’re all well aware of how the Patriots have had many late round and undrafted success stories. Most recently was last years undrafted rookie, Jakobi Meyers, who not only made the team, but hauled in 26 catches for 359 yards throughout the season. Another successful late round success story is Julian Edelman, who was a 7th round pick. The Patriots may have just found themselves their next great wide receiver in undrafted rookie Jeff Thomas. Thomas played college football at Miami (FL) from 2017-2019. He totaled 83 receptions for 1,316 yards and 8 touchdowns while in...

The 2021 Super Bowl Champions

Reading Time: 2 minutesAfter Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots signed former Carolina QB and MVP Cam Newton, I believe that they will be the best team in the NFL, with a 13-3 record and a Super Bowl ring. Looking back on Cam Newton’s MVP season where he led the Panthers to a 15-1 record and a Super Bowl appearance, they had a less than stellar offense around Cam, and a defensive-minded head coach. However, Cam Newton found a way to balance running and passing better than any scrambling QB at that time. He doesn’t run too much...

Why Cam Newton Will Have Success In New England

Reading Time: 2 minutesCam Newton was the last significant free agent signing NFL fans around the league were anxiously awaiting. The New England Patriots signed the 31-year-old quarterback to a 1-year deal worth up to $7.5 million. Newton is now the second Auburn quarterback on the roster for this season as he joins 2nd-year backup Jarrett Stidham. It is unknown right now whether Newton will be the Patriots starter at the start of this season, as Bill Belichick will most likely make Cam prove himself to earn his spot. The former 1st overall pick played for the Panthers from 2011-2019. In 2015, Newton won season MVP and lead his team to the Super Bowl. Although they ultimately lost to the Broncos, this successful season shows Newton is capable of leading a winning team deep into the playoffs. During Newton’s nine years with Carolina he threw for over 3,000 yards in every year except 2019- in which he was injured. His large 6’5, 245 lb. frame allows him to fire passes into tight spaces and make deep, accurate throws. Newton is most known for his mobility. He had over 100 rush attempts in 7 of 9 seasons in Carolina, rushing for an average of 600 yds. per season (excluding 2019). The quarterback mobility factor will be new to the eyes of Patriots fans who’ve been watching Tom Brady stay in...

What the Cam Newton Signing Means for Jarrett Stidham and the Patriots

Reading Time: < 1 minuteHot off the press—Cam Newton is now a New England Patriot on a “bare minimum” deal. This doesn’t shock many people as he is the best quarterback on the market for a team whose current starting signal caller is Jarrett Stidham.    Analysis: The worst case scenario with this signing is that Cam gets injured or is no longer a capable starter. With this, Stidham would have the privilege of learning from a former league MVP. Newton would then leave the following offseason with what is likely a very small bag of money. On the...
