Mac Jones has won just one game in the regular season, but his career-defining line motivates him to do better every time he hits the football field.
Jones had the most challenging game in his career last Sunday. He played against former Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. His team lost the game and it was another disappointing game for the first-rounder.
“Losing sucks. You just have to take it for what it’s worth and more so in the beginning of the season as a learning experience. Nobody on our team likes to lose. You can play well or play not well, but you just need to score one more point than the other team. When we do that I think we’ll all feel good about it and feel good about the progress. Obviously we’ve made progress, but you also can’t outcome-think and focus so much on winning or losing and then you are not focusing on what your job is.
“There are two parts to this story and you just have to focus on the next team we’re playing. And we’re excited and we just have to attack each day with that mindset. It’s all about the operation. You have to have all 11 guys ready to roll. It starts with me, whatever you do the more reps you get at it the more comfortable you get at it. I think we have a lot of room to grow there. The progress has been pretty good, but we want to get in the win column more here and just try and grind it out and eliminate those bad plays that we have identified.”
Mac Jones follows the line
Jones is an excellent option for the Patriots. Head coach Bill Belichick selected him for a reason. He saw something special in his skill set and I guess Jones has everything he needs to win games in the upcoming season. He will definitely be the Patriots quarterback of the future.
The rookie quarterback did good job in the preseason and he was spectacular in all four games of the regular season. He needs more help from his teammates though. Some of the players have to elevate their game.
