BOSTON (CBS) — Ron Rivera is entering the first year of his head coaching career without Cam Newton as his starting quarterback.

Hired in 2011 in Carolina, Rivera joined the Panthers at the same time that Newton entered the league as the No. 1 overall pick. The duo rode the usual ups and downs of the NFL together up until 2019, when Newton had a lost season due to a foot injury and Rivera was fired in December.

Now that both men have moved on — with Rivera going to Washington and Newton signing in New England — Rivera expressed confidence that Newton is ready to get back to his proper form.

“Don’t bet against him,” Rivera said on 670 The Score in Chicago. “I really wouldn’t.”

Rivera’s now the head coach in Washington, where the franchise is backing Dwayne Haskins as the QB of the future. That prevented the Redskins from seriously considering Newton in free agency, but Rivera has seen plenty from Cam this offseason to believe he’s on the right track.

“I haven’t talked to him recently, but just based on the stuff that I’ve seen and the people that I’ve talked with, he’s headed in the right direction,” Rivera said. “I mean, he’s probably about as healthy as it gets from what I’ve seen on video. So I think he’s ready to bust out. I really do. I would never bet against the young man, that’s for sure.”

Rivera added: “First of all, you got to know who he is and understand what he’s gone through. And he’s a guy that always tried to do things, I think, because he’s felt the pressure. He’s felt the pressure of being the No. 1 pick. He’s felt the pressure of having won the Heisman Trophy and being the No. 1 pick. He’s felt the pressure of being a black quarterback, with all the stuff that’s been heaped on him. And he’s really had to find his way through it, and he’s done a great job with it.”

Somewhat inadvertently, I became a minimalist. Not solely with the style of clothing and accessories that I gravitate toward - though I do love clean lines, classic silhouettes, and neutral colors - but also with my space and the amount of "stuff" in it. For the last three years, I've primarily worked from home (which is a one-bedroom apartment that I share with my fiancé in Manhattan), wherein certain clothing no longer made sense. While I've always maintained a clean and relatively clutter-free space, I routinely became distracted by the little messes that would pile up around my workspace, from papers to clothing. My focus derailed and shifted into a full-on deep clean of my apartment on more occasions than I'd like to admit. On days when I had meetings or went into an office pre-COVID-19, I found it increasingly challenging to get dressed. Many of the standout styles in my closet lost their luster. The majority of my "investment pieces" felt fussy for the occasions at hand. And newer items I purchased were trickier to style than I imagined. As for the basics, well, they were worn out. For someone who has worked in fashion for the past 10 years, this felt like an epic failure, to say the least.

I decided to restrategize and started with a major home and closet clean-out. In turn, my approach to shopping shifted, too. Admittedly, I've been an impulsive shopper and felt buyer's remorse on one too many occasions. But I've managed to curb the habit, which ultimately has made getting dressed easier both on the days I put on "real" clothes and when I work from home in a cute workout set or sweats. Since COVID-19 began, I dug in deeper. I revisited my wardrobe and developed new guidelines for myself in terms of the clothing and accessories I keep and how I shop for something new.

Keep reading for some of my most significant changes and renewed approach to shopping, from my "wish list" strategy to a more thoughtful consideration of the brands I support and my methods for curbing impulse purchases.
