Can Mac Jones Live Up To The Mammoth Expectations?
The New England Patriots bounced back after a terrible 2020 season and have reclaimed their spot in the postseason. However, Mark Dondero from WEEI believes there could be some concern that rookie quarterback Mac Jones' ceiling may not be as high as we think it is. Dondero didn’t say anything that outrageous. We haven’t seen the Patriots really open up the playbook this season. Josh McDaniels game plan has been obvious, run the football and protect Mac. However, I don’t think that has anything to do with Mac’s ceiling. I respect Mark as a broadcaster, but he’s reaching here. Though Mac Jones was the most NFL ready quarterback coming out of the Draft, he’s still a rookie. I also think that we should accept that Mac Jones is probably not going to develop a new skills set. However, what we’ll probably see is, Mac will improve his current skill set. Jones is not going to be successful in the NFL because of his physical skill set, he’s going to be successful because of his mind.
