The washed-up Panthers star Cam Newton is heading to colder, a lot colder climate in New England to redeem himself. Atlanta Falcons followers are both actually comfortable or indignant with the brand new Newton-Patriots contract.
After a protracted wait, Newton signed a one-year $1 million cope with the Patriots with $7.5 in incentives on Sunday.
Falcons followers reacted to the signing throughout Twitter.
Falcons Followers Can Root for Newton?
Now that Newton is out of the NFC South, followers appear to be comfortable and suppose they cheer for Newton.

Others know the drill; actual Falcons followers don’t root for the Patriots. However contemplating Tom Brady is now in Tampa, it’s protected to root him one. The Patriots workforce proper now’s now not the identical workforce that Atlanta blew the embarrassing 28-Three result in.
It’s kinda shitty for me as a falcon fan tho…
“Wow , Cam lastly isn’t a Panther fan… he’s not on a workforce I hate.. so I can lastly be a fan”

Newton By no means Actually Gave Atlanta the Rivalry Feeling
You’d suppose the Falcons and Panthers could be the largest rivalry within the NFC South particularly contemplating their stadiums are closest to one another. That isn’t the case.
Cam wasn’t a rival, he was a simple win for the Falcons.
Newton performed the Falcons 15 instances and solely got here out with six wins. Enjoying Newton and Carolina was nearly a assured win for the Falcons. Out of all three divisional opponents, Cam’s worst stats got here in opposition to the Falcons and the Panthers haven’t overwhelmed the Falcons since 2017.
His total stats in opposition to Atlanta are literally comical with a 6-9 document, 57.6 completion fee, 16 interceptions, averaging 216 passing yards, and sacked by Atlanta 24 instances.

Followers Sad With Atlanta for Not Signing Cam Newton
After wanting again on the stats I’m undecided why Falcons followers are upset about Cam not coming to Atlanta. However, right here they’re considering their experience is related and that Thomas Dimitroff may simply hearken to them as he did with the brand new uniforms (that instruments 17 years).

Scorching take for the day Atlanta falcons ought to commerce Matt Ryan to the Patriots for Cam Newton

Cam Newton Wouldn’t Slot in Atlanta
Matt Ryan isn’t going anyplace. For one, he’s been essentially the most constant and dependable participant on the workforce since his singing in 2008 and in case you don’t consider that then have a look at the stats.
Cam Newton would have by no means signed with the Falcons as a result of he wasn’t going to settling for a backup place and that’s what he would strictly be in Atlanta. Plus, he was means too costly and doubtless excessive upkeep for his or her liking.
To not point out, Newton doesn’t have the identical resolution making within the pocket that Ryan has and we will’t afford Newton’s interceptions in Atlanta. Newton additionally lacks the management abilities and the clutch comebacks within the fourth quarter.
Whereas it is perhaps demanding being a Falcons fan generally, at the very least Ryan has made 30 fourth-quarter comebacks versus solely 15.
The Falcons QB depth chart is strong sufficient with Ryan and Matt Schaub. What wanted to be fastened was the offensive and defensive position together with some assist in the backfield which they haven’t had for 2 seasons. The Falcons didn’t want one other quarterback, particularly with Kurt Benkert again this season.
Let’s give our QBs in Atlanta a bit extra respect.
