Mac Jones is the Patriots’ own version of former Jets QB Chad Pennington

Two weeks down. And so much to get to—you all actually crammed the mailbag up this week.

From Ryan (@malloyrj21): If the season is going unhealthy will Belichick get rid of Mac Jones to avoid wasting his own activity by way of blaming Jones for the whole thing?

Ryan, this is a bit of cynical, even for me. Do I’ve some reservations about Mac Jones? I do suppose he’s, to a point, restricted bodily. But that doesn’t imply I don’t suppose he could be a actually just right participant. And I believe the comp I used to be given sooner than the 2021 draft is an excessively apt one—Jones seems to be to me, via 20 NFL begins, like Chad Pennington.

Some took that as a shot once I introduced it up in the spring of his draft yr. I promise you, it’s no longer. I actually favored Pennington as a participant, and his résumé can lead you the place you wish to have to head with this.

• No. 18 pick out in the 2000 NFL draft.

• MAC MVP and Offensive Player of the Year in 1999.

• Started greater than 10 video games in 4 seasons and made the playoffs all 4 of the ones years.
