Cam Newton is the likely starter at quarterback in New England this season, but there haven’t been any official announcements about Week 1.
On Monday, the veteran quarterback was asked by reporters if he’s been told who will be starting under center come Week 1.
Newton had a blunt response.
“Y’all sitting up here asking silly questions to me and I’m looking at y’all with the same thing. I don’t know what y’all want me to say,” Newton said, per the Boston Herald. “You know, you know that. You know he hasn’t said that, so for you to just ask the question, it is what it is.
“So every single day I’m coming out here with the intention to just get better. That’s the only thing I can do. I can control that. But as far as somebody else’s analogy or interpretation for what Week One is, I’m trying to focus on what tomorrow brings, and making adjustments in tonight’s meetings.”
Newton and Mac Jones are competing for playing time at quarterback. Newton is the likely favorite, though Jones has played well.
“I don’t take [your questions] personal. I just want you guys to understand, everything y’all know, I know,” Newton added. “There’s no hidden motives or things like that. I do know those things like that, I can’t worry about. Because each and every day, I don’t necessarily care about who’s starting, I mostly care about making sure I put the best product out there for me, and I know Mac is feeling the same way, I know Brian [Hoyer] is feeling the same way and everybody else, going down each and every position.
“As far as Week One, we’ve got so much to worry about prior to Week 1. And that’s where my focus is right now.”
The Patriots open with the Dolphins on Sept. 12.
