  • Patriots are now below 500.

  • Stephen A start to get worried.

  • I am, I am.

  • And I say that primarily due to record in the division, that they end with the Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Bills.

  • I mean, you know, they could lose the Kansas City tonight.

  • Obviously, they could win.

  • We know what kind of potential they have.

  • It could go either way.

  • But if they end up getting a couple of games up in the New England Patriots, obviously that's gonna be something that's difficult for them to overcome.

  • Here.

  • Nobody's gonna feel sorry for the New England Patriots, and I understand that.

  • Here's where I feel they should.

  • These guys had to practices in the last two weeks.

  • E.

  • I mean, you don't feel sorry for them.

  • If it's injuries, you don't feel sorry for them.

  • Um, if it's circumstances that everybody has to live under, But I'm talking about every.

  • It almost feels like every other day.

  • The New England Patriots practice facility is closer, yet you've got a situation where they hold Denver.

  • The six field goals you saw how they played against Kansas City, you know, coming into the season, they lost about nine different guys who elected not to show up and play this year, primarily due the Cove in 19.

  • And everywhere you turn like these are not normal circumstances, and it seems to be affecting them mawr abnormally than everybody else and then practiced even pull the Stephen A.

  • Smith.

  • Well, thank you for making my argument.

  • So what side of the argument you Are you worried or not?

  • I am worried because I'm saying I don't know how you can overcome that.

  • Your argument is my argument.

  • I mean, like, this is this is what I'm talking about specifically for a Bill Belichick coach team.

  • If you can't practice in two weeks, basically, that's really bad.

  • What do we always say with Belichick?

  • Why is it that in the playoffs they excel even beyond what you expect in the regular season?

  • Sometimes Belichick with time to prepare, is just impossible.

  • And it's not like the Patriots all over the field have the best athletes.

  • It's not how he draft because he's also the GM or coaches him up.

  • He gets guys who he likes and puts them in specific roles, and that it's not that they're not versatile, but he uses them in specific ways.

  • It's a lot about coaching.

  • So if Heat, it's not like the Bills or the Titans, right?

  • Who?

  • The Titans can come off a certain situation.

  • And they did great.

  • No excuse for the Patriots, but in particular for a Belichick coach team, missing practice means a lot.

  • Also, they have a bunch of people out for coping, not just the nine defections to start the season, because we account that in the beginning of the season.

  • But they got a bunch of, I think, five players out for Covitz.

  • So no practice, covert, all that stuff.

  • Still, they didn't give up a touchdown.

  • They always win when they don't give up a touchdown.

  • They didn't give up a touchdown.

  • Why didn't they win?

  • Cam has to be better like he has to be better and he knows it.

  • And if you're daring Cam Newton to throw it, he's got to be able to throw it.

  • And by the way, again, he's rusty.

  • Not only is he coming off the catastrophic injury in the new system with a new team, also not a lot of offensive weapons, but now he's rusty to.

  • I even mentioned last week, they could even lose to the Broncos.

  • I'm okay if you want.

  • I'm not concerned about the Patriots.

  • If you want to be concerned about them three of the next four games against the Niners, the Bills and the Ravens, you're gonna have to win.

  • And and then you have one against the Jets, The Jets before the Ravens.

  • I'm saying three of the next four.

  • I said, So you're like, Let's assume they beat the Jets.

  • You're gonna have to win one of those three games at least to keep your head above water.

  • And none of those were gimmes.

  • So but the schedule is tough for them in this next coming stretch, the way they play defense and what I like Do I think Cam is capable of beating you with his arm if you're gonna just dare him?

  • Yes, I do.

  • I'm not worried about the Patriots.

  • I'm not sold on camp.

  • I'm not sold on camp primarily due to his injuries and his rust.

  • Even though he's complete 68% of his passes, I'm just not sold.

  • I think if you are an opponent of the New England Patriots, you know that they could run the football effectively.

  • But the bottom line is you're going to Dare cam to beat you.

  • And the fact that practices haven't been frequent and regular.

  • Obviously, it's something that's going to serve as an impediment to whatever success we're hoping can will have.

  • Because again, I will remind you.

  • With all the years that Cam Newton has been in the National Football League, he only completed more than 60% of his passes 2 to 3 times one year he completed, and they're both was in the 60 percentile range.

  • One year he was at 67% with North.

  • Turner's his offensive coordinator in Carolina before he got injured a couple of years ago.

  • That's really the only stellar year he had throwing the football with accuracy this year is that 68%.

  • But a lot of those guys, a lot of those passes a low risk.

  • I mean this short yardage situations and what have you.

  • We've got to see him step up and I think you're going to see teams forcing him to show you what you can, what he could do, throwing the football and I'm not sold that he's in a position.

  • That's why this is gonna come.

  • And that's why I'm worried.

  • That's why this is gonna come down to Cam like who's better at making adjustments than Belichick?

  • Right?

  • So now it's out there.

  • I mean, by the way, and you even suspected coming into this season, teams are going to say, Let's stop the Patriots, including Cam, Obviously from running.

  • Belichick knows that he is going to be prepared for cam toe.

  • Have an answer for that, and I think Cam has to execute.

  • If Cam executes, the Patriots will be fine.

  • My money's on Cam executing.

  • He's been an elite quarterback before.

  • Yeah, okay, that about three practices in two months.

  • So if anybody needs practice time to throw the damn football, it's Cam Newton, right?

  • I'm not saying he can't do it, but he needs that time.

  • I'm not sold yet.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.

Patriots are now below 500.
