    It was FAR better than Josh Allen's rookie year where he threw for 2000 yards and a 53% completion percentage. Jones YPC was even better than Allen's rookie number.

    Get your facts straight folks.

    Re: Mac Jones supposedly took a big step forward

    Jones as a rookie was 7.3 yard per completion.

    Josh Allen, a 4 year pro, same season? 6.8 yards per completion.

    Who, exactly has a noodle arm?

    Anyone who says Jones is not a good QB, doesn't know what they're talking about.

    Skewed stay. Through it for your life will put up a big yards per completion. Controlling a game will give you less.

    Josh? Noodle arm?Josh Allen, a 4 year pro, same season? 6.8 yards per completion.

    Who, exactly has a noodle arm?

    Re: Mac Jones supposedly took a big step forward

    We played NE and big bad Mac Jones 3 times last year.

    We outscored them 90-52, out passed them 753 yards to 374 yards (that's twice as many), and out turnovered them 1 to 5.

    It took a once in a blue moon snow/wind storm to allow them to barely squeak by us with a 4th down red zone stop.

    NE beat 2 playoff teams last year. One was us in the storm, the other was the Titans without Henry.

    I'll be afraid of NE and Mac Jones when they give me a reason to be.

    Re: Mac Jones supposedly took a big step forward

    Mac Jones’ second year is going to be very interesting.

    From his performance his rookie year, he was head and shoulders the best QB to be drafted in 2021. And that from a highly touted QB class. Certainly much better than 2022.

    He is in the best situation of all the 2021 QB’s.....and performed to such a high level that the Pats exceeded expectations.

    He is not on the same level of Josh Allen, but right now, he is the 2nd best QB in the AFC East, and as he gains experience he will probably only get better.


    I hear from ex-NFL players all the time about how they did not know **** when they were rookies, and had to learn how to become a NFL player. Just yesterday I was watching a rerun of the NFL “top 100” players....the QB section, and Brett Farve was talking about the importance of the head coach and how his knowledge and leadership provided the confidence to achieve.


    And this quote was interesting....”....early in my career, when I didn’t know a good play from a bad play. A good team from a bad team, quite frankly. I put a lot of stock into what Mike Holmgren said. And, he was believable."





    Not surprisingly the round table above had probably the greatest HC of all time, Bill Belichick, and the greatest QB of all time, Tom Brady, talking about the game they love and have excelled at the highest level.

    The combination of what seems like a very level headed, calm and smart QB in Mac Jones, with the greatest HC in the history of the NFL, it would be foolish to discount the expectation of Mac Jones taking a “big step forward” this season and many more to come.

    Thankfully, the Buffalo Bills have a unique and rare talent in Josh Allen. And the Bills organization is the best in the history of the team, I like their chances in competing with Mac Jones and the Pats.

    For once, we actually agree. I do think the Bills are currently better than the Pats, and should win the division, but Mac Jones can't be dismissed. I highly doubt he'll dominate us the way Brady did, especially with us having Allen. I could see him being a thorn in our side though, maybe taking a game from us and screwing up our playoff positioning.

    He plays for the Evil Empire and it would be great if we could dismiss him, but he won 10 games as a rookie.

    Mac Jones is not even a top 10 QB in the AFC.

    I hope the Pat's stick with Jones for the long and expensive term, who's running attack made him look more lethal than I think he is.

    Good enough to keep around but not crappy enough for good draft picks.

    Re: Mac Jones supposedly took a big step forward

    I was listening to ESPN radio on the way in to work this year. They were talking about QBs who got paid way too early (Goff, Wentz, etc.) and then Keyshawn, like he's done a few times before, brought up how Josh played well after getting his big money deal but "we'll see how [he] is without Daboll," as if Daboll was so great in the NFL before and made Josh. And not one mention of how Mac Jones lost one of the best OCs in the NFL, and not only that, will probably be getting his calls from Belicheater or Matt Patricia (both defensive guys) or Joe Judge (a ST's coach).

    Re: Mac Jones supposedly took a big step forward

    Miami players and media are also giddy over the way Tua looks in practice. In the spring, everybody looks great.
    I've made up my mind. Don't confuse me with the facts.

    I'm the most reasonable poster here. If you don't agree, I'll be forced to have a hissy fit.

    Tua and Mac are basically the same QB

    He was #13 OVERALL IN THE NFL as a rookie. Look again. Look at the stats I posted.

    Agree strongly with your comments on Daboll (or Keyshawn's). And while you are right about what appears to be the OC/play-calling situation in NE, I said the other day two things: Belichick is still the best ever coach in the NFL and it's his playbook more than the OC on that team. Not every team, but on that team. I think they'll be fine. It looks like they'll slowly slide Judge into that OC space and go from there. You, I, and everyone know not to ever count Belichick out. Will the Bills beat the Patriots? I think so, but it won't necessarily be easy.

    This year, in particular, I will be much more interested in how the other 3 AFC East teams play against each other. The Jets seem to have their first decent coach in a long time and have loaded themselves with physical talent. That team goes as their young QB goes. Miami I just don't see being so great, but I understand they have a couple of special players. Their QB isn't as good as they are selling. And the Patriots are going bout their post-Brady years in a pragmatic manner. I think the Patriots will go as goes their defense. If they can stop teams like Miami and NYJ, then they can have a decent season. I think the people calling Mac Jones garbage are just nuts.

    Re: Mac Jones supposedly took a big step forward

    People writing off the Pats are nuts. That team demonstrated 4X the resilience of the Bills last season. They kept coming and coming and coming and coming. They won SEVERAL games on sheer will alone. They didn't have the talent in the end which does play out -- however, you add some skills and talent to that squad and they are dangerous if they come with the same fierce competitive and consistent spirit they had last season.

    LOL. Knowing you, I'm sure you did your research before posting as devil's advocate. I fact checked you. You are right in the sense that it is a limited body of work. But if a QB was able to produce at that level once as a rookie, you have to think that if the team keeps as much stable around him as they can, they he will only gradually improve. Josh did. Some will. Some won't. We'll have to wait and see, but in a Belichick system I wouldn't bet against him. The same system that allowed a 6th round pick grow and thrive for 20 years.

    Who had the #13 spot the year before Jones? 2020 #13 was Kyler Murray with > 3900 yards thrown for.
