Cam Newton was recently on the I Am Athlete Podcast. And he had some good things to say about Bill Belichick. Newton said Belichick is the “most misunderstood person in all of sports.” And then added “He’s a cool dude who understands the game.” This wasn’t the first time Newton went to bat for Belichick. Back in January Newton went on the Greg Hill Show and also told that audience how cool Belichick is. And this is something that Belichick needs. There’s always criticism about Belichick’s bad attitude, his shortness with reporters, and lately he’s been taking heat for pushing Tom Brady out the door. So there’s no doubt that Belichick needed someone like Newton to campaign for the Patriot Way. Obviously Newton wants Belichick to bring him back next season. Therefore it’s about keeping his job. Yet this is something that could be valuable to Belichick. How many players have been outspoken on his behalf? And we know Belichick doesn’t believe in self promotion. So Newton and Belichick might be a good fit when it comes to building a culture. Because sooner or later Newton will convince people to buy in to what New England is selling.
