The Lounge>Cam Newton to the Patriots

Former NFL MVP Cam Newton has reached agreement on a one-year, incentive-laden deal with the New England Patriots, league sources tell @mortreport and me.

Newton now will step into the mix to try to help replace former Patriots’ QB Tom Brady.

I got news for you buddy. Mahomes he's not your every day better than average QB... That doesn't really prove much.

Like I said before Smitty was overrated by me for sure but he definitely isn't as bad you guys made him out to be. You guys were obsessed with blaming everything on him.

Also he was a great mentor for Mahomes as Mahomes and his Dad have said several times.
The nuances definitely get lost whenever the arguments goes on and on, and people get entrenched in their arguments and hyperbole... yeah, people are going to be cool on the internet by saying "garbage QB", but I think a lot of people were pretty accurate on who he was, which was a mediocre to above average QB who wouldn't be able to consistently carry the Chiefs deep into the playoffs. Even a few of the 49ers trolls eventually admitted to that.

I think half of the 'winning' thing is simply Smith not doing what people said he wouldn't do..... and the other half was reaching the AFCCG two years in a row and winning the SB, as the "I told you so" for all of the "defense wins championships anyway"/"people put far too much focus on the QB position" type of arguments.

It actually worked out pretty perfectly in that regard, because had they just picked up some other average-above avg QB, it quickly becomes "well, this guy can't win either".
