Cam Newton will defintely feel disheartened after last night’s narrow loss to Seattle Seahawks. Russell Wilson led his team to a 35-30 win and condemned the Pats to their first loss of the season at the CenturyLink Stadium.
Newton had another productive outing for the Patriots. He completed 30 of his 44 attempted passes. He threw for 397 yards and had one passing TD against one interception. Newton also had two rushing TDs on 11 carries.
Here’s what Bill Belichick said about his team’s performance in the post-game press meet.

Six-time Super Bowl-winning coach, Bill Belichick, was visibly a bit annoyed after Sunday night’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Despite that setback, the veteran coach had no ‘complaints’ regarding starting quarterback, Cam Newton. At the post-game presser, Belichick was questioned about Newton’s development in the offseason.
He replied, “Yeah, Cam’s worked really hard on his throwing mechanics and we’ve seen significant improvement during that time. Cam’s the type of guy, when you point out something to him and ask him to work on it, he works very hard and he really tries to do it the way that you ask him to do it.”
“So, I can’t ask him to do any more than what he’s doing, but he’s definitely made some modifications in his mechanics and his delivery. I think that’s helped his accuracy and the timing a little bit,”
Cam works very hard on his fundamentals, claims Belichick
The 68-year old further added that his assistants, OC Josh McDaniels and quarterbacks coach Jedd Fisch, have worked closely with Cam over the last few months to get him up to speed with the Patriots playbook.
“Coach Fisch and Coach [Josh] McDaniels, as well as Cam, have worked very hard on certain things that we’re doing that maybe he hasn’t done as much of in the past or we’re doing them a little differently, whatever the case might be.”
“But, he works very hard at his fundamentals and techniques and the execution of the passing game. The results have been positive and I’d say significantly better on those certain types of plays that those adjustments need to be made on,” Belichick concluded.

The Pats will look to bounce back with a win in their next game against Las Vegas Raiders at the Gillette Stadium. They will need some momentum if they want to beat high-flying Kansas City Chiefs at the Arrowhead Stadium in Week Four. One thing’s for sure, Cam Newton is back and he’s here to stay.
