Cam Newton likes to wear fancy clothes when he goes to work and when he leaves.
Former 49ers quarterback Jeff Garcia is not a fan of him wearing those clothes while being terrible on the field. He had this to say on Sunday after the Patriots got blown out by the 49ers at home.
“You go into this game [with] two touchdowns, four interceptions. You throw — what — three more interceptions, you get yanked in the second half. There’s nothing good going your way. Why are you dressing like that, to bring more attention to yourself? I’d be trying to ask the equipment managers, put me in our jock sock cart and sneak me in the back door and I’ll show up on the field and do the best that I can.”
“This just goes back to a couple years of just watching this guy and seeing him at the podium. But yet what he’s doing on the field does not translate to being that guy. … When you predict you’re going to win a Super Bowl and you go out and do it, wear whatever the hell you want. But, you know, right now, I’m not buying it.”
Appearing on The Greg Hill Show Monday morning, Newton was asked to respond and the Patriots quarterback actually agreed with Garcia, but also stated that he isn’t changing.
“Who is this? No. 5 Jeff Garcia? Well, you know what’s crazy? I agree with him and the fact that he’s a former player, he has every right to say that and until that happens so be it,” he said. “That’s another opinionated theory and it’s fair to say. I know I come off to so many different people in different ways and that’s fine. You know what, he’s exactly right. But, I’m not changing the way I dress.”
