“If you ask me, do I want to have a backup? of course notNewton said. “When I look at other teams, and look forward to playing other players, there have been men getting away with murders for years because of sub-par play. Do I have the right to say that with my year this year? No. But I’ll be honest and say that because that’s what I do. “
