Yeah, all off-season I’ve been thinking that the Pats are operating in “desperation mode”. These are the sorts of moves a team makes when they’re trying to go all in to stay a contender when their window is clearly closing. I’ll be happy when that franchise fades back into mediocrity for good.Jones didn't "fall" to the Pats.
They reached and took a late 2nd round/3rd round prospect at #15 in the first round.
Sort of like paying Nelson Agholor big WR money, and Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith big TE money.
You can pick a turd QB as high as you want, he isn't going to become Tom Brady.
You can pay TEs as much as you want, they aren't going to become Gronk and Hernandez.
Regardless of how desperate you are.
Ok…We’ll see!I love the Pats got him. I actually cheered when they drafted him. His accuracy is straight up horrible. Let him try to scatter bomb his throws in the NFL and see how it goes. His WRs were open by 5 yards in college and always had to wait on the ball that won't work in the NFL. Tua was the most accurate QB in college football history, they are not the same player. Tua was the exception coming out of bama as QB, and even he still has to prove he can be a guy that carries a team on his back. Mac Jones is more of a Josh Rosen.
Agree it is not the type of thing you want to hear. However it is early. There may be negative articles and opinions from early in the careers of Bradshaw, Montana, Brady, etc out there as welli take anything said this time of year with a complete bottle of salt, but if i was a Patriots fan i would be extremely prepared to hear a lot more of this in my immediate future.

Jones has a golden opportunity with Cam Newton sidelined by a hand injury, but it sounds like he has been outplayed by Jarrett Stidham. It's possible that he's not even the backup to open the season, but it's still very very early in the 2021 calendar to make any pronouncements. This was still not the news you were looking for if you hoped Jones would start early in 2021 and revitalize the Patriots passing game.
