"A NFL pocket? Yeah, I think that's a great point, Gary, because you often hear the high floor assessment of quarterbacks. And not always are the high floor quarterbacks actually high floor quarterbacks. I mean, we heard that about Sam darnold a few years back, right? So, but I think where the Patriots were able to make that assessment accurately, I think that's where bell checks friendship with Saban comes in because he was able to have a thorough in depth understanding, perhaps more than any other NFL talent evaluator about the things that Jones had behind the scenes, the things that don't necessarily show up on tape to make him confident that he had those other compensating abilities that processing speed the ability to get the ball out or to withstand pressure. The things that you just described Gary that if you don't have mobility, you absolutely have to have in order to play right away. So I think Belichick was more able perhaps than others to get that information because he's so close with Saban. And thus was confident in his assessment of Jones as a high floor guy. But it's not necessarily an easy assessment to come to in a lot of different circumstances. And a lot of those player comps are so problematic, right? In general, because they are, they disinform the scouting process, right? Because if you're saying I want to Mac Jones, where does the scouts start? He starts at the beginning of the process, looking at quarterbacks and trying to basically overlap them onto an archetype. And I think what's interesting is two things. One quarterbacks coach told me that, you know, throughout the pre draft process, you can see how teams react this way. And there's a general. I'm not going to say unintelligent, but heard mentality, where the quarterbacks coach said, if something is popular right now at the moment, like if Mac Jones is popular, I'll take Mac Jones best throw. I'll coach my quarterback to do it and then it is pro day he'll do it 8 times in front of scouts and then that just completely messes up their whole value block. And they're just like, nope, this is Mac Jones. This is Mac Jones. We have to take this guy. And the flip side to that is another quarterback's coach. Well, movement trainer, Bobby stroop, who works with Patrick Mahomes said, could you imagine? Like when Patrick was getting coming of age, Peyton Manning was the archetype. If everybody tried to teach Patrick Mahomes, how to be Peyton Manning, Patrick Mahomes wouldn't exist. There would be no Patrick Mahomes, and that would have screwed everything up. And so the problem with these archetypes is like you can't even say you're looking for your next Lamar Jackson because what are you doing then? You're overlaying your expectations onto a quarterback that is not Lamar Jackson. And that is just problematic from day one. Yeah, and to that point, Connor, I think the best expectation to have is the quarterback that we take and we develop is going to win games in the way that his skill set and this quarterback is best suited to. And that is what the Patriots have done with Mac Jones. The M mq NFL podcast is Jenny Bret Connor ore and me, Gary Grammy.

"Threaten 100 rushing yards and or multiple rushing touchdowns every week. This is also guys like Patrick Mahomes, Justin Herbert, dak Prescott, who utilized mobility to create that time and space, and that allows them to unleash arm talent that puts incredible stress on opposing the fences. But then, last spring, along came Mac Jones. Jones was the most polarizing player in the 2021 NFL Draft, a class defined by 5 headlining quarterback prospects. Last spring, if you pay attention to social media, which we shouldn't, but we do. Forty-niners fans were threatening to all but maybe mess up the carefully folded t-shirts that Levi stadium's team shop if the forty-niners took Matt Jones third overall. Ultimately, Jones fell to 15th on draft night into the patient arms of the Patriots. And with two weeks ago in the regular season, even coming off back to back sub par performances, it's indisputable that Mac Jones has had the best season of all The Rookie quarterbacks selected last spring. Hello and welcome to the MM QV NFL podcast. I'm Gary Grammy. I'm Jenny rentes. And I'm Connor. And this show is going to be all about Mac Jones. Or more accurately, mostly about Mac Jones, and very much about what Matt Jones is early success in the NFL means for Jones for the Patriots and for the future of the constantly evolving process of quarterback evaluations. And we're going to start things off by trying to get a better sense of the man himself. So Jenny, you've done a little bit of reporting on Jones for a piece that's going to be coming out soon. And just give us a sense of who he was at Alabama where he was obviously a longtime backup and then a one year starter. Yeah, I think that's a big part of his development was that he was at Alabama for four seasons. He was behind Jalen hurts and then to a toggle. So he had to buy his time. He had to wait, Butch Jones, who was on that Alabama staff, praised Mac for not entering the transfer portal for waiting it out for waiting his turn and soaking up as much information as he could in the meantime, but also inherent in that was probably a recognition that he did need some time to develop and that Alabama watching other quarterbacks play was as great of a place to do it. I think the other part of that is there were multiple offensive coordinators and offensive analysts. A lot of different voices and input. He got to see a lot of different styles, different wrinkles, learned from different voices. I mean, obviously Nick Saban is the voice at Alabama, but his offensive room has been kind of a landing spot for a lot of different offensive minded coaches who were once at the highest level or taking a step back. And so I think for quarterbacks to go through there, it is a really great place to develop because you're exposed to a lot of different concepts, a lot of things that are popular in college now, sure, but also pro style verbiage and pro style ideas. One thing that really stood out to me was that one of Mac Jones teammates in the quarterbacks room described how because they had so much skill and talent at Alabama. A lot of the focus was adding different window dressing to kind of the same core plays. And that reminds me a lot of the Patriots not necessarily the talent mismatch because we all know Alabama's talent versus other college programs is a lot bigger between any difference between NFL teams, but the idea that you would take concepts, but run them out of a different formation or a different personnel grouping or vice versa. To exploit Mitch map mismatches and set up mismatches. So he was learning and growing as a quarterback with these basic ideas that are fundamental to both Nick Saban's team, but also Bill Belichick's team. The other thing that stood out was that in college, there's obviously a lot of restrictions on how much time coaches can spend with players in the off season. And so at Alabama, they would have summer classroom sessions with their coaches, where they would do installs. And then it was up to the players to lead player led workouts on the field by themselves to practice what they learned at those installs. And again, by the time that Mac was a full-time starter, it was his fourth year at Alabama. He had started some games, the previous season when tua was injured, but 2020 was his first year as a full-time starter. So he took the lead in those summer workouts. And it wasn't just, hey, let's run some routes on air. Let's practice this kind of throw. It was let's literally run what we learned in the classroom. And let's mimic things. Let's pretend what happens if a blitzer is coming off the edge, or how would we make a certain adjustment against different coverages? Even if they weren't actually playing against those coverages, he would ask his teammates to imagine certain scenarios and practice against them. And I think it's a pretty high level of mastery of the offense, but then also being able to lead his teammates so they could get in that kind of work. And one of his teammates said was almost as if coach Saban was on the field or their offensive coaches at the time was sarkesian. And none of them were there, but to have that ability to lead those workouts to the level of detail that Mac did. I think is another layer of the preparation that he had. So I think we talk about all of these things because when you're evaluating quarterbacks in the draft, you want a guy that can come in and contribute right away. And I think in recent years, as the NFL has been more willing to embrace movement and athleticism and using that in offenses, which is a great thing and was watched delayed, but I think there's also been this idea that for a quarterback to contribute right away in today's NFL, they need to have that ability when things break down to create plays off schedule with their legs. At the very least, if the concepts aren't working out, you know they have some inherent playmaking ability. And I think what Mac brings is while he doesn't necessarily have that ability to create with his legs, although I will say he apparently was would always win the post practice sprints among the big skill players. So that included quarterbacks, tight ends, linebackers, at Alabama. Now, I'm sure those other positions were running more during practice and may have been a little bit tired, but yes, you know, he has some mobility there. But the idea that a quarterback could come in as a rookie and would have other attributes that would allow him to start from day one beyond mobility. I think has been an interesting concept for teams around the league to see this year. Yeah, I mean that's kind of it right. He is a first reaction player in a league where there's been sort of an expanding of mines as far as getting guys who can also make those second reaction plays, which I think is a possibility for Mac Jones on some snaps, but not a not a strength, not something you'd underline as something he does terribly well in his game. But I do want to throw it to Connor just for a few moments. Don't take too long, Connor. Connor, of course, wrote the magazine cover story for the December issue, which was all about how basically coaches and teams are harnessing the second reaction ability of this sort of new almost just incredibly talented upcoming class of young.

"Will skew things a little bit, <Speech_Male> but they have not been good <Speech_Male> against the run. It seems to <Speech_Male> be a good matchup <Speech_Male> for <Speech_Male> the Patriots in that regard <Speech_Male> and that they want to run <Speech_Male> the ball and be physical <Speech_Male> with Damien Harris and I assume <Speech_Male> or Monday streams <Speech_Male> and might be active <Speech_Male> this week <Speech_Male> to give them a dual <Speech_Male> threat. What do you <Speech_Male> think about that <SpeakerChange> side of the <Silence> ball? <Silence> Well, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> you know, I <Speech_Male> think that that's an area <Speech_Male> that <SpeakerChange> they <Speech_Male> can exploit <Speech_Male> what the Chargers <Speech_Male> bring to the table. <SpeakerChange> I think <Speech_Male> the Chargers are <Speech_Male> not <Speech_Male> real strong at the linebacker <Speech_Male> position. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> You know, one thing about bringing <Speech_Male> its daily is he <Speech_Male> will be very multiple <Silence> with his coverage look. <Speech_Male> So, <Speech_Male> you know, I think <Speech_Male> that the running <Speech_Male> game is a factor. <Speech_Male> I've always <Speech_Male> liked Damien Harris. <Speech_Male> He just seems to get <Speech_Male> nicked up. <Silence> But I think <Speech_Male> he's a <Speech_Male> he's a physical <Speech_Male> inside runner <Speech_Male> who's got some juice <Speech_Male> to him. So he's not <Speech_Male> just a big body, even <Speech_Male> though he's what, I don't know, <Speech_Male> two 20s in that <Speech_Male> range, is he? Yeah. <Silence> He's a pretty big <Speech_Male> dude. <Speech_Male> But I've <SpeakerChange> always <Speech_Male> liked him. <Speech_Male> I think Stevenson <Speech_Male> could well be up <Speech_Male> this week. You're right and have <Speech_Male> a nice one two punch <Speech_Male> of physicality <Speech_Male> and toughness <Speech_Male> inside. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> To sustain offense <Speech_Male> and keep <Speech_Male> Mac Jones <Speech_Male> in a position where <Speech_Male> they can be <Speech_Male> proactive with their <Speech_Male> pass game as <Speech_Male> opposed to being reactive <Speech_Male> and long yarded <Speech_Male> situations <Speech_Male> where the defense tends <Speech_Male> to have the tactical <Speech_Male> advantage. <Speech_Male> So I would <Speech_Male> expect the run game to <Speech_Male> be a factor. I think the <Speech_Male> charges are somewhat <Speech_Male> susceptible to <Speech_Male> that. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> would not surprise me at all. <Speech_Male> And I think they want to <Speech_Male> play that way. I mean, you would <Speech_Male> know better than I, <Speech_Male> but <Speech_Male> there's no way they <Speech_Male> want Mac Jones dropping <Speech_Male> back 40 times <Speech_Male> by choice. <Speech_Male> They don't want <Speech_Male> that to happen. Unless, <Speech_Male> you know, hey, look, <Speech_Male> if for whatever reason <Speech_Male> charges jumped out <Speech_Male> 24 6 in the <Speech_Male> second quarter, everything <Speech_Male> changes. But <Speech_Male> I don't think they're <Speech_Male> going into this game with <Speech_Male> the idea <Speech_Male> that Mac Jones is going to <Silence> toss it all <SpeakerChange> over the yard. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Yeah, absolutely. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> I <Speech_Male> haven't seen a ton of film on <Speech_Male> the Chargers, Derwin James <Speech_Male> with him coming <Speech_Male> back from injury this year. <Speech_Male> Any difference in <Speech_Male> his play any difference <Speech_Male> in how <SpeakerChange> Brandon staley <Speech_Male> is using <Speech_Male> him as oh yeah, <Speech_Male> he's and I <Speech_Male> think staley <Speech_Male> has said this, but the <Speech_Male> film shows that <Speech_Male> he is the most <Speech_Male> critical piece because <Speech_Male> they play him at four <Speech_Male> or 5 different positions. <Speech_Male> So he can <Speech_Male> do a lot of different <Speech_Male> things. <Speech_Male> And they'll <Speech_Male> use him that way. So <Speech_Male> I guess in this game <Speech_Male> it would depend on <Speech_Male> situational <Speech_Male> football. What the <Speech_Male> situation is <Speech_Male> in terms of how do they choose <Silence> to use him? <Speech_Male> I think <Speech_Male> if <Speech_Male> the Patriots <Speech_Male> continue to play a <Speech_Male> good amount at a 12 <Speech_Male> personnel with the two <Speech_Male> tight ends, you'll <Speech_Male> see him at times match <Speech_Male> up, but you'll <Speech_Male> see him at times <Speech_Male> beyond <Speech_Male> and on the ball defender <Speech_Male> and the run game. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> you'll see he'll be <Silence> used in multiple <SpeakerChange> ways. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Interesting. <Speech_Male> All right, <Speech_Male> Greg, well, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> that was a ton of information. <Speech_Male> I <Speech_Male> really appreciate it on <Speech_Male> behalf of our listeners <Speech_Male> and the readers at Boston <Speech_Male> sports journal dot com. <Speech_Male> I greatly appreciate <Speech_Male> you <Speech_Male> coming <SpeakerChange> aboard and <Speech_Male> lending your insight. <Speech_Male> No, Greg, <Speech_Male> I enjoyed, you know, <Silence> you know how much I love talking <Speech_Male> football. <Speech_Male> Yeah. <Speech_Male> Absolutely.

"There are very there are very few like the patriot scheme where it's like, man, if we get that, that's gravy, but really we want what you do from the pocket is Paramount for us. And in terms of Jones, I think, and I'm curious what you think. If you are that type of thrower, like, say, you know, the Brady, the breeze, the Mac Jones, where, you know, you're going to be under center and in the pocket. You have to find a way to make those special throws to be special as a quarterback. And I think in my opinion, part of the outstanding opinion on Jones, and we just don't know. We don't know how is he going to evolve physically? Is his arm going to get stronger? Is he going to be able to make those type of throws when it counts? And we don't have a whole lot of examples right now. But I agree with you when that he his arm strength looks fine when he has time to gather himself a little bit and definitely step into things when he doesn't sometimes it gets a little bit iffy, but is he going to develop that part of his arsenal to move into an elite status where now I think his ceiling is probably from what we've seen, good, good, solid starting quarterback in this league. I'm just curious what you think about that. There's a lot to unpack based on what you just said. Let's start with the idea of having to be a second reaction improvisational player. Because people flippantly now throw that out as if you can not play quarterback in the NFL if you can't run around. And I think that that's too easy to say. You have to look at the process of playing the position. You know, it's very easy to look at Tom Brady and push him aside and say, oh, he's just the greatest of all time. But what's the process that got to that point? How come Tom Brady at whatever age is, 44, 45, I lose track now. I lose track of a lot of things now, Greg, but, you know, how can he still do what he's doing without any meaningful second reaction improvisational ability? So there's a process that gets you to that point. That's what has to be discussed. And where that process starts is a full understanding of your offense and a complete understanding of defenses generally and the specific defenses that you're going to play against because the Brady's the breezes and I know I'm speaking about Hall of Famers, but it's the process. Those guys win 99% of the time before the ball is snapped. They know where they're going with the ball. They're not surprised. They're not getting a free rusher that all of a sudden, wow, where did he come from? You know, so I think Mac Jones ultimately is that kind of quarterback. Is he a non athlete? No. Is he going to make a career out of running around? No. You know, we saw this past week against the jets where he didn't make a few plays where he left the pocket. Can he do that on occasion? Sure..

"Single week is more and more and more comfortability and success within structure within the offense within the system. And it's impressive. And at this point, I'm not capping and sealing anymore. I think this kid can be really, really good. In the NFL, how good will he be? That only time will tell. I'm done sitting here with the player comps. I'm done sitting here saying, you know, the Patriots offense is gonna win in spite of Mac Jones or with Mac Jones but not because of Matt Jones. I no longer know all we're looking at. We might have something even more. Man, if you back in October of 2020, could see yourself now. I know. Use a third round pick on Mac Jones. I know wouldn't use the I don't need to take him that high. No, what are you talking about? They don't need to worry about him. Mia Colby. I own it. Yeah, no, you do. I respect it. I think, again, I think sometimes the conversation about Mac Jones drifts and you'll have two people arguing opposite points at each other where one person's arguing what he is right now versus another person arguing the ceiling, like, I think if you want to talk about Matt Ryan as his ceiling, that's fine. He's probably more Kirk Cousins right now. He still has room to grow. And that's the other thing too. When I say Mac Jones still has room to grow. I mean that as a compliment, I mean that as a good thing, I mean that is something patriots fans should be excited about. Mac Jones having room to grow means the guy you're seeing now is going to get better. But I think some people see that in it sets them off and it pisses them off by what do you mean Matt Jones is gonna get better? Like he's already so good. Why does he have to be better? Like, no, that's how I need this works. Rookies get better. You know, who was really good as a rookie and then just plateaued was Andrew Luck. And you know, you want to have dirty little secret of like mid 2010s NFL interlock wasn't a very good quarterback..

"It <Speech_Male> might be looking to make a <Speech_Male> change.

Just your <Speech_Male> initial impressions <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> on <Speech_Male> max overall <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> game. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> whether you're seeing kind of <Speech_Male> continued <Speech_Male> growth and movement <Speech_Male> in I am the <Speech_Male> right direction, yeah. <Speech_Male> I think the passing <Speech_Male> game in <Speech_Male> general <Speech_Male> has slowly but surely <Speech_Male> gotten better. I mean, <Speech_Male> hunter Henry's <Speech_Male> getting better. Kendrick <Speech_Male> born's getting better. <Speech_Male> Agile, <Speech_Male> I think he's getting a little <Speech_Male> bit better. Johnny Smith <Speech_Male> is, you <Speech_Male> know, I don't know, lost <Speech_Male> at sea at this point, <Speech_Male> but, you know, <Speech_Male> hopefully they can, you know, <Speech_Male> throw them a life preserver <Speech_Male> and reel them back in at <Speech_Male> some point. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Mac Jones, I thought <Speech_Male> was better in this <Speech_Male> game and you know, <Speech_Male> the <Speech_Male> game plan called for him <Speech_Male> to get rid of the ball really <Speech_Male> quickly and most instances. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> that's <Speech_Male> going to minimize <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> some of his stats. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> look, he had the interception <Speech_Male> and had a couple other <Speech_Male> throws. And I think <Speech_Male> I think <Speech_Male> Mac Jones has to <Speech_Male> realize that <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> it's not <Speech_Male> that he's trying to be a <Speech_Male> hero. I think he's <Speech_Male> just he's trying <Speech_Male> to make a play all <Silence> the time when, <Speech_Male> you know, <Speech_Male> John, he asks <Speech_Male> like 5 or 6 in <Speech_Male> completions a game. <Speech_Male> What's three <Speech_Male> more? Still <Speech_Male> probably be over, <Speech_Male> you know, 70% <Speech_Male> 68%. <Speech_Male> Like he's <Speech_Male> already at like <Speech_Male> 77% <Speech_Male> every game, completion <Speech_Male> percentage, <Speech_Male> just throw a couple <Speech_Male> into the dirt and <Speech_Male> move on. Yeah. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> but I thought <Speech_Male> I thought he was <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> great down the stretch. <Silence> I thought that the plays <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> the <Silence> <Advertisement> touchdown <Speech_Male> to <Speech_Male> hunter Henry in the <Speech_Male> corner of the endzone was a <Speech_Male> great play by Henry <Speech_Male> and Jones where they <Speech_Male> really had to read <Speech_Male> what the cornerback <Speech_Male> was going to do <Speech_Male> and how Henry was <Speech_Male> going to react. <Speech_Male> And then also <Speech_Male> the third down conversion <Speech_Male> on <Speech_Male> the final drive when they <Speech_Male> basically ran <Speech_Male> out the clock. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Almost the same type <Speech_Male> of play, <Speech_Male> except <Speech_Male> Henry went the other way <Speech_Male> because the cornerback <Speech_Male> was playing them outside <Speech_Male> leverage. So I <Speech_Male> think <SpeakerChange> yeah, I <Speech_Male> think good stuff, I <Speech_Male> think the offense is <Silence> making progress. <Speech_Male> <Silence> Not <SpeakerChange> so much for <Speech_Male> the defense. <Speech_Male> Yeah. Well, all right, <Speech_Male> Dallas in <Speech_Male> town will have more <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> later in the <Speech_Male> week as kind of look <Speech_Male> into that matchup. <Silence> But that <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> going back to what <Speech_Male> you said about the defense, that <Speech_Male> might not be fun. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> again, we'll <Speech_Male> discuss the cowboys <Speech_Male> later in the week.

"And I don't want to completely revisit the topic. We talked about it a ton on Tuesday on the Tuesday show. But the one thing I wanted to say about that is I think some people get caught up in I broke down 6 plays in my film review. We broke down one on here where we were talking about his ability to push the ball down the field. He doesn't have to hit all 6, right? That no one's saying that he's gotta be perfect. And that he's gotta hit 5 or 6 of those throws that he had opportunities down the field. But he himself, and I'm talking about Mac now, admitted that there were times where he watched the tape back from the DM against the jets and he was kicking himself. That he didn't throw the football down the field more. And he just has to hit a couple of them, right? Give me one or two, right? It doesn't have to be all 6. He doesn't have to be perfect. He just has to hit more than what he's hitting now. So do I think it's all do I think it's really, really important that Mac Jones turns into Russell Wilson and starts throwing all these deep bombs and left and right and everything like that. No. But he can manage the game, right? He can make sure that the offense doesn't shoot itself in the foot, and he's not Trevor Lawrence or Zach Wilson turning the ball over like crazy trying to push it down the field, but he has to hit a couple of those. When they're presented to him, he's got to make one or two downfield throws a game. And he did that against Miami, I would say. And it just didn't work out because of Damien Harris's fumble. Look, not, you can't hit every deep throw. That's what makes it so exciting..

"And, you know, sometimes I'm a little quick on my reads. And he's basically admitted that this week. And but he came to a rookie quarterback. He's not going to be perfect. And, you know, to basically be like, you know, to have a 19% error rate, that's really good in an NFL game for a second game. So I think he's, I think he's doing a great job. I didn't think he played great in this game. You know, some of his throws were off and other things. But, you know, I think in terms of his progression, he's in a great spot. So it sounds like patriots fans should feel probably a little bit better right now about last week's game than they did right after last week's game. Regarding Mac Jones, anything else quickly, that jumped out at you on the all 22? No, well, I mean, you know, I don't know if we want to get into this now, but just, you know, because there was some talk on Felder Mas and of course it got taken out of context because Jimmy Stewart the producer there tries to be really funny. And, you know, he remember, radio shows are entertainment as Nick would know well. They're not exactly journalism. And so, you know, sometimes Jimmy pushes the envelope a little bit too to create some controversy around the show, especially his people are not doing that. And so, you know, I brought up something that has been something I've thought about from time to time. I'm not saying it's factual. I'm not saying that's the case, but there have been times where I've wondered is does Mac Jones height affect him in the pocket a little bit, where he doesn't see everything that say a 6 foot four 6 foot 5 quarterback..

"I don't see the cliff coming. Yeah, I mean, look, I'm sure we'll get into a lot of Brady talk next week. Oh yeah. You know, so I don't want to go nuts with it now, but look, look, I'm not gonna me personally, I mean, patriots fans can do whatever they want. Me personally, I'm not that impressed with 9 touchdown passes in two weeks against two defenses that have new defensive coordinators who really don't have that good of personnel on either side or it's very young. I mean, the cowboys, Dan Quinn's there, they're not all that good. They didn't have DeMarcus Lawrence and DeMarcus Lawrence was a little bit beat up in that game. This past week is the falcons we all know they're garbage and, you know, had a high draft pick and spend it on a tight end and they have a whole new system there. So, you know, that's pretty typical. I mean, that Brady through 9 touchdown passes. I mean, whooped you damn do, you know, really in my opinion. It's less than by the end of the season. It's less that it's more the decision. The further you get away from it the worse it looks. Yeah, I mean, but I mean, look, the scoreboard is gonna be there. At the end of the look, Brady won the first year without question. We'll see what happens in year two. It looks like Brady's gonna win it. But we don't know. We don't know how the Patriots are gonna look and Mac Jones is gonna look. They could be by the end of the season if the Patriots finish 11 and 6 and win a playoff game in almost pull out a second round game and it looks like they have their franchise quarterback of the future. You know, maybe it's a little bit closer, but there's no question through what one season and two games. It's Tom Brady and TKO. But long ways ago. Okay, I promised we're going to reserve the rest of the Brady talk from a week from now because that's all you're going to hear. But again, it's hard to not notice and it's hard to stay focused on the week ahead, which is the science, of course, Greg with the benefit of game. Don't look ahead. Stay focused. With the benefit of some game film, I know Greg is going to really break down what happened exactly in this patriots jets game. So make sure to look to BS J for that. Upcoming once he gets a chance to break things down and see, could the Patriots have been better? What went wrong there? There are other opportunities. Maybe they could take.

"Boston sports journal, Greg bedard and Greg, I guess the morning after question on the Patriots 25 to 6 win over the jets. Was it a good winner or a bad win? It was a win. I would not say it was a good win. I mean, look, when the opponent are rebuilding opponent, gives you four interceptions before even the halfway point in the third quarter. And you need to basically make some defensive stands in the fourth quarter to win that game. It's not a good one. It's just not. And I don't know why people are trying to talk themselves into it. It wasn't. I mean, a lot of the stuff that they had issues with in week one from past protection, stopping the run getting off the field in key points. I mean, they got a little bit better at that. But in general, there was a little bit of improvement incremental overall, not with the run defense, I thought it was, I thought it was worse in this game. The jets almost averaged almost 5 yards of carry. And really, if they just stuck to the ground, they probably would have been in this game till the very end. But no, I did not think it was a good win. It was a win that it was a win that they needed to get. They got it. What's not right home about it? Yeah. I guess in addition to the things that you mentioned with the run defense, the protection, obviously, was was rough. And the trend Brown injury certainly is a huge deal. They start one tackle. They have to yank him, you know, Durant there early in the first half, just because things weren't going well. It just seemed like Mac was never able to get comfortable in the pocket. I guess the question is, how much of it was on game planning? How much of it was on personnel limitations, whether it be down a tackle or getting to know the receivers where it's just still, you're not able to open things up. I guess as you wrote in your column for Boston sports journal Greg, everyone's got to be a little bit patient. And I think that's the problem is nobody is patient. You want to see them open it up. And it's not just to get to where you were in the best days of Tom Brady where the offense could just march up and down the field and score. I think even seeing what you saw from Mac Jones in week one, gave you enough confidence to think, okay, they can do a little more than they're doing here. And you can see it almost felt like a step back offensively where, I mean, just yards per attempt. Everything was even more conservative than it was in week one. In a game where you've felt like they might have been able to open it up a little bit..

You can go on there. All things can be excuse me. And Tim has breakdowns, film breakdowns of Mac Jones of the other rookie QBs. I didn't get to ask you how you thought Mac was compared to the other rookie quarterbacks, but we can have you on in a couple of weeks once we get some regular season tape under the belt and discuss some of those things as well. But all things QB on YouTube breakdowns, film breakdowns of Mac Jones, the other rookie quarterbacks and all sorts of people around the NFL are flocking to all things QB to watch these kiwi breakdowns. I'm telling you from a guy like Tim, who has worn the helmet and been in those shoes before it's obviously next level stuff as you guys can tell from the last hour or so and we could pick Tim's brand for another hour, Alex to talk to him about the XFL for another hour. So we'll have Tim back on soon and check back in with him after Mac Jones makes a couple regular season starts. But until then, Alex and I will be back on the Thursday show at a preview Sunday's season opener against the Miami Dolphins. I can't believe we're already there, but it is week one, so we will get into the dolphins and the Patriots match up on Thursday,.

I've tried to schedule and looking at it I say this is gonna make the playoffs. And so i believe it's gonna take ten wins for them to make the playoffs. So i'm gonna go ten ten and seven at the bare minimum possibly lebanon states. But i'll be conservative. I'll say ten and seven I think mayfield play well. I know they're not going to rely olmec as much as maybe some of the other quarterbacks but they're going to run the football i believe they're going to be a top five running team and everything they do is going to be predded gonna be set up the running game so they're gonna be heavy play action.

"Absolutely Mac has exceeded my expectations. I mean, you know, I did say after the first practice that he was going to be the starter sooner rather than later. But on field, his physical abilities, the ability to manipulate the pocket like you talked about, has been better than I thought it was going to be. His accuracy has been better than I thought it was going to be. You know, but here's the other thing. I don't even think they've really gotten into what the sweet spot is going to be for Mac Jones, and that's his abilities at the line. That's why, you know, I disagree with some people who make the point. Well, you need to have the starter named and he needs all the reps. They really haven't gone very far in practices and aside from identifying the mic and maybe a few small changes. They have an advanced very far in this. I think that the offense that they are starting with the year, you know, Nick, we've always talked to years past about how the Patriots defense goes pretty vanilla and then they build and build and build to the end of the year. And we never had to worry about it because it was Tom Brady as the quarterback. They were already, they were always going to be advanced and Tom is going to be Tom. I think we're in that situation now with the offense. I think that they're going to start very basic and they're going to start to layer on. And I think that's part of the where cam and Mac or Mac and differentiate himself from cam and he might get the job earlier than we think. Because I do think they're going to start layering that stuff because that's the whole key to this offense. You need a quarterback that can read the defense pre snap, make the adjustments so that the offense gets into a good play. All right, I want to get to some rapid fire questions. We also have the member question of the day, but first, I want to get Bernard's thoughts on Cuban rounds. I mean, just unbelievable. Unbelievable. We're talking cigars. Yeah, and I've gotten a ton of pictures from people are listeners, are members that are bought some Cuban rounds that are smoking them, like, you know, it's great stuff. I mean, these are these are handcrafted. They're all natural. They're affordably priced. Havana inspired Nick, I've been telling you, I take them out, I'll smoke them on the golf course. I'll smoke them on the porch. Like, the thing I really enjoy about these, first of all, they look and feel like luxury cigars and I have smoked those in the past. These are in the same ballpark. They're much more affordable. And the thing that I love about them is that, you know, sometimes you'll have a cigar and it's just like, oh man, everything's like too heavy like dominates everything like your taste, your smell, your clothes, everything like these Cuban rounds, like they're just, it's almost like a really good sort of light beer that's like really well crafted in that. You could just you smoke it, it's not a big deal. It doesn't dominate you. It doesn't affect you for the rest of the day. It just, it's a really good product in your hand when you want to celebrate something or you just want to sit back and say, you know what, I did a good job today. And Mac Jones has probably smoked a lot of human rights because he had a really after every camp practice..

"But I feel really good about Mac Jones and I'm ready to put him in whenever I can. So was this ever a quarterback battle? Or do you think Bill and his head said cam's gonna start week one? That's what it's going to be. We're going to challenge The Rookie as much as we can. But I pretty much know the end of this story. I do think it was a quarterback competition. And, you know, I say that because if it wasn't if Mac Jones didn't keep up his end of the bargain, then they would just redshirt him this year. And I don't think that they're going to do that. I think that I think that the argument that I keep making is, and I don't know if I'm not making the point clearly enough because people don't understand it. But the week one opening day starter doesn't mean anything. It doesn't if you have two guys who are really close. And you have one guy who's a vet who's been in the league like 12 years and it's been in the system for two years. And the other kid is a rookie first round pick who has only been here for a couple of months. You know, they could easily just say we're red shirting Mac it's cam's team. We're not only putting Mac in if there's an emergency. And actually, you know, we're going with Brian Hoyer as the backup and max not gonna dress. Like that would mean that there wasn't a quarterback competition. There was a quarterback competition because in weak, if it's week 6 or 7 or 8, what have you and Bill and Josh McDaniels look at it and they say, you know what? Cam has a progress as much as we thought. The offense is the passing offenses limited. We can't win like this. We need to go to Mac. Then that means that Mac Jones won the quarterback competition. Week one, week 6, it doesn't matter. Week one is an arbitrary made up deadline. It doesn't mean anything. It doesn't. And I don't know why people keep misconstruing this. But if I think Mac Jones is going to be the quarterback to finish this season for the Patriots and in my mind that all that matters and that shows you that it is, it has been a competition because Mac had to win that. You win that trust, and I think he's done that. Yeah, and they say in the NBA, it's not who starts the game. It's who finishes you hear that all the time and you can say that about the football season. One last one for you. You know, you were one of the first guys, if not the first guy watching Mac in mandatory mini camp. And the control at the line of scrimmage. And I always remember you saying he calls out the mic. He makes an adjustment with the protection. And, you know, he looked, I believe it was at Kendrick Bourne agala, and they kind of had this, yes, this is what we're gonna do and the ball was out quick. So going from that very first time when you wrote about that, Greg, so where we are right now on August 27th, 2021. Did Mack end up exceeding your expectations over the last few weeks?.

"Yeah, the member question of the day I thought, and actually, I'm grabbing this from from Twitter where I saw this. And somebody said, scary when you pull from Twitter. Yes, yes it is. So somebody asked me and I'm trying to find it All right, well Jamal for some reason has not been down on the Mac Jones talk and and I love the guy. He's a good Twitter guy. He always gives feedback and he said, Mac, Jones, fourth, or fifth best QB in the draft. Let's not try to convince people, he's Andrew Luck in the Pats, got a steal at fifteen, and I just wanted to reply and I replied to him on Twitter, but I just wanted to say, if Jamal is listening, I appreciate you listening and following, but nobody in this corner is saying anything about Mac Jones, being Andrew Luck. And I think we just had a segment. Basically, detailing bystander luck at this point in time. And by the way, hinder luck. Wasn't that good? Just to let people know, he really wasn't at the end of the day. And I got in a, I got a whole crap ton of stuff for rightness, column for Sports. Illustrated say, he might be at some point in time, but Andrew Luck Is Not Great yet. And boy the blowback. I got and guess what month? He was not good to finish the rest of his short career. So look, nobody saying that Mac Jones is Andrew Luck. He's got a long way to go. He certainly could look a lot better because of his surroundings. Hear sort of, you know, we've talked about it before, we've all had, beer goggles in college and other times and, and Nick's Bar down there and Virginia. Uh, I think I'm, I, I have a serious case of Cuba goggles, and that might be going on at this point in time after the last year. But but kids got a long ways to go. I can't, I can't even tell you right now. Whether you play winning football for this team, I think you can, but we'll see. But first, he's got to win the job. And I think today was a big step towards doing that, but it could all flip on its head tomorrow because the cold here is William Steven Belichick and he just loves to screw with us. He does. And there's this just weird thing in 2021 when you just like, you're not allowed to enjoy stuff down. Not allowed to give credit to anybody. And if if you if you say something nice about a player, oh come on, he's not the greatest of all everybody, just take a deep breath. I mean we can credit the guy off or looking like he he knows things and understand stuff out there very early in the camp process. We can objectively talk about this stuff without losing our minds. Everybody calm down, nobody's same thing. He's Dan Marino or John Elway or Tom Brady. Nobody's saying that it were just talking about observations and what he's been able to handle early on. And it's not the worst thing in the world, try to be a little optimistic and say, Hey, you know, maybe they actually drafted a guy at fifteen, who can play the quarterback position? That would be pretty cool. Nobody saying he's the greatest thing since sliced bread, so it's just more twenty Twenty-One stuff. As I said it's, you know, sometimes it's dangerous. That's what our world. He is Greg Bedard, I am Nick cattles. That'll do it for this episode of the Greg Bedard Patriots podcast with Nick cattles everybody be well we'll talk to you song..

"This is the Greg Bedard Patriots podcast with Nick cabins. All right, so another draft in the books. Greg in a lot to talk about a lot to sift through. Let's start with Matt Jones because that's where we began on Thursday night when we did our late podcast that we went live and we appreciate everybody who joined us that night Beyond 1 a.m. just, you know, crazy passionate Patriots fans. Thank you to all of them. But let's start with Mac Jones because I gather and listen, I don't have a chance to really sit down and and listen to Boston radio. So I gather on Twitter that there's a certain show that you are on long time to time that had some kind of beef about Matt Jones and how that came about the idea is I guess. And and you can correct me if I'm wrong but the idea is worth a tree. It's if, if they really liked Jones, they should have moved up and they should have drafted him. There's another story line about possibly Robert. Kraft forcing Belichick to take Mac Jones. Start with how the Patriots. Were able to acquire Mac Jones. They stayed at fifteen. They drafted him at 15. Should they have? Moved up, Greg, should they have done something different? Of course not. I mean, and I and I love failure mass and I'll be on with those guys today and I'm sure this is a big part of what we'll talk about failures straw, man. Argument a couple of packs, a couple straw-man arguments on this one, you know. So this one it's it's not giving them enough juice. So he's got a, he's got a inject, a couple strommen and do this. Number one, is that off. And look, I I could I know that there are people who are saying this, but that that he keeps talking about like that, that some people are saying that the Patriots were smart. They were brilliant for staying put a 15. Now look, I understand, there are plenty of people out there including those in the media who think that when Belichick farts, it smells like roses, like I understand wage. Okay, but I don't know who he who is listening to, who is getting this from about that, that the pellets that the Patriots were brilliant. To stay put at 15,000 um maybe some of the Belichick acolytes in the media. But look as far as that storyline goes, I don't I don't think they're smart. I just think that they they read the board well and and there's a couple of Reason in will get into this will take us into the Mac Jones discussion and the pic There are different things that go into play when you're in the draft, when you're in the draft at that spot, every spot really, you have all this entail on other teams, so, wage. So the Patriots. New, first of all, answer me this Nick is Mac Jones. Considering today's NFL is Matt Jones. The type of passer he is dead for every team in the league..

"But at some point in time whenever Mac Jones is ready, he is going to be able to operate the full facilities of the Patriots offense, which Cam Newton was never able to do last year, I don't care what was around him. Mac Jones is one of the most advanced. I didn't get a chance to ask Bill. This question in the press conference. I wanted to But Mac Jones is probably the most advanced college quarterback in terms of pre-snap checks reads, all this stuff. All the mental song that goes on at the line of scrimmage I have not seen or heard of a quarterback as advanced at Mac Jones in terms of what his level of experience is. And I think that it's just citing to me. It's probably exciting to Josh McDaniels. It's probably exciting to the Patriots that eventually at some point in time. Mac Jones is going to be able to do a lot of the stuff at the line Shack on. Brady could do. I'm not saying everything. I'm not saying that he is Tom Brady, but just to be able to say, all right, we see this defense, we're going to check out of this, this guy is Advanced Beyond almost all college quarterbacks you. You talk to people around the Alabama program, and they talk about how smart he is. They talk about how he's been teaching the Alabama offense, to Bill, O'Brien wage, Down there, so right? Just in terms of all that, that's a great basis and it's something that the Patriots lacked, whether it was Cam Newton or Jerry students. Did them coming from the Baylor offense home and the Auburn offense, Mac Jones can do everything that the Patriots need to have done at the line of scrimmage and that is a huge key component in this offense and they got a guy who can do that.

"This is the Greg Bedard Patriots podcast with Nick cabins. All right. So here we go. Greg. Sorry if my lighting is a little off, I couldn't care less. It's almost 10 of 1 in the morning, but we are here and we are talking about the Patriots draft. And you know what Mac? Joe at fifteen, Greg, your initial thoughts, I would be thrilled if I was a Patriots fan in terms of You know, overall what went down that they didn't have to trade up or anything like that. I think that's number one that they got. I don't want to talk about value because everybody talks about with the Patriots. Like, you know, they they they stayed put and the most important thing is they didn't have to overpay for anything. And the second most important thing is, in my opinion, they got the most pro-ready quarterback in the draft, and they got the quarterback that best translates to what they do as far as an offense. And look, we whole bill tonight. Just got off the press conference with him. Say that cams, our quarterback and went on to say, Whatever time Jerry or Mac are ready to challenge a compete. Then we'll see how that goes. I don't think anybody should think anything that belczak was going to say anything else about the guy doesn't even have the Patriots, Playbook bills, not going to give him anything or give him any sort of Leverage or anything. Where, you know, you hear other? I've got news, he's a guy. I mean, you hear other teams and I've ridiculed them in the past that draft the guy in there. Like he's a day. One starter what, what are you talking about? He hasn't even practiced yet, so that's not a surprise. But I think the big thing for me and I think for the Patriots is this, Mac Jones. Eventually. And I'm not saying from the get-go or his rookie year or what-have-you, I do expect him to compete for the job, fairly early, probably for the season. Opener might take them a little bit longer but at some point in time whenever Mac Jones is ready, he is going to be able to operate the full facilities of the Patriots offense, which Cam Newton was never able to do last year, I don't care what was around him. Mac Jones is one of the most advanced. I didn't get a chance to ask Bill. This question in the press conference. I.
