    Mac Jones supposedly took a big step forward

    https://www.bostonglobe.com/2022/05/...iots-practice/

    Other reports having him coming to work beating the coaches for film study as well. His arm strength is supposedly greatly improved.

    LOL! Read the same stuff about Stidham...right before they replaced him with a washed-up Cam Newton. And anyone will look good against that Cheats defense. They have no more talent on there anymore except for Barmore.

    Off-season happy talk.

    The Pats are yesterdays news.
    We don't even have pictures
    Just memories to hold
    That grow sweeter each season

    He's a good quarterback, he'll win them a couple of games this year when they need to him to step up.

    Re: Mac Jones supposedly took a big step forward

    This is suredly some happy talk, but the Bills lost to the Patriots once last season and the Patriots still have the games greatest coach behind the bench. Coordinators don't matter. It's his playbook. And not one of you can deny that Jones will have improved going into this year (he was thrown into Belichick's offense as a rookie last year, if nothing else, he'll feel more comfortable). Add some arm strength. The Patriots are not going to be a walk in the park. It's amazing how some Bills fans have gotten so arrogant over the past year-plus with the team still having won nothing.

    He is. I still see him being more Grogan than Brady. And Grogan was a very good QB. He needs time. He'll be better than Daniel Jones, to me, judging on last season. Criticize me for setting the bar low, I know. But look at where those two QBs were each drafted. The Patriots got more bang for their draft spot.

    He's Chad Pennington with a slightly better arm

    Chad was an above average QB. Not sure if Mac warrants that descriptive yet.

    God I hope not. Pennington had a noodle-arm, but he was frustrating as hell to play against. It was 5-7 yard quick outs every time. He was almost impossible to sack because the ball came out so fast every time. It was like a ball control passing offense. It wasn't dominant, it was boring, but it was efficient. It limited our touches and our O was so bad back then that we couldn't take advantage of the chances we had.

    If Belicheck can do something similar with Jones, it'll be a good way for them to keep Allen off the field and increase their chances of winning.

    People forget- the Patriots were in the div race with us until the very end of the season last year. In the regular season, they won 10 games, which is just 1 less than what we had. They're not the Brady-era Pats that are going to win 12+ games a season. But they aren't pushovers.

    No, I will not stop posting because you don't want your delusions ruined with facts.

    Last year’s outcomes are meaningless going forward.

    Yes and no. Teams don't completely turn over in the course of a season. Mac Jones won 10 games as a rookie. We are better than them but they are not a bad team. They can catch us if we aren't careful.

    Can be said of a 8 win team.

    games have to be played, players need to perform. Last years result is a nice story.

    I was about to say. Pennington's albatross was that he never played on a good team.
