Patriots’ Kendrick Bourne had third Highest passer rating generated when targeted on third down
For years’ New England Patriots’ fans were able to watch Tom Brady connect with Julian Edelman in the most crucial times. Edelman is now a year into retirement, and Brady is a Tampa Bay Buccaneer. Last season the Patriots officially entered into the Mac Jones era, and New England’ fans should be excited to watch the connection between Jone and wide receiver kendrick Bourne. According to PFF, Bourne recorded the third highest quarterback rating when being targeted on third down. That’s a significant stat as Bourne and Jones continue to build chemistry. In this video, I discuss why that type of stat also won’t be lost on the Patriots’ coaching staff. As the 2021 NFL season rolled on, we saw Kendrick Bourne become more involved in the Patriots game plan. Watch this video and listen to me discuss why the offseason was so important for Bourne, and why I believe he’s going to be a huge part of the Patriots game plan this season.
Patriots Could Use Kendrick Bourne The Way 49ers Use Deebo Samuel
For weeks’ Producer Mike has been trying to make the Kendrick Bourne and Deebo Samuel comparisons, and Ray just wasn’t letting it fly. However, PFF NE Patriots put out a tweet today that forced Mike, Ray, and Mario from Hashtag Sports to explore the possibility further. <a href="https://twitter.com/pff_patriots/status/1524464358016782336?s=21&t=3BtkdTr5kyigNKD6CXGbFQ">https://twitter.com/pff_patriots/status/1524464358016782336?s=21&t=3BtkdTr5kyigNKD6CXGbFQ</a> Mike lays out his argument and draws the comparisons between both receivers, while Mario believes makes his argument that Bourne is a real receiver, and Samuel should be considered a running back.
Patriots’ “Mac Jones-Kendrick Bourne connection was one of the best in the NFL in 2021”
Bernd Buchmasser of Pats Pulpit wrote a piece that highlighted that the “Mac Jones-Kendrick Bourne connection was one of the best in the NFL in 2021”
How Surprising Was The Patriots’ Jones-Bourne Connection Having So Much Success Last Season?
Buchmasser is one of my favourite Patriots writers, and if you head on over to Pats Pulpit he breaks this story down way deeper than what I shared with you today. Anyways I really want to know what Patriots’ fans think, how surprising is it that the Jones- Bourne connection was so productive?
