Following the Patriots' 33-6 loss to the 49ers, on the San Franscico postgame show, former quarterback Jeff Garcia ranted about Cam Newton's postgame flasy attire.
“You throw 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?” Garcia asked on NBC Sports San Francisco. “I’d be trying to ask the equipment managers to put me in your jock sock court and sneak me through the back door and I’ll show up on the field and do the best that I can.”
Appearing on The Greg Hill Show Monday morning, Newton was asked to respond and the Patriots quarterback actually agreed with Garcia, but he said he's not 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.”
