Mac Jones Has Blunt Response When Asked About Apologizing To Brian Burns

Head coach Bill Belichick taught his players well. The New England Patriots head coach is a man of a few words. He doesn’t discuss ongoing situations and no, you will never hear him talk about private matters. Guess who embraced the same approach? Patriots rookie quarterback Mac Jones seems to be a man of a few words, and he doesn’t like apologizing, too. Got the hint? This will turn into a really hilarious story.

Belichick’s first-rounder got into a situation with Carolina Panthers’ Brian Burns. During his session with the media, one of the reporters asked Jones if he considers apologizing Burns for the ankle injury.

“I already addressed the situation,” the quarterback said.

Reminds you of someone? Yes, he definitely sounds like someone close to Belichick. The head coach provides such responses when the media tries to dig into a particular problem. Similar to Belichick, Jones is “looking forward to playing the next game.” You can bet on this one. This seems to be Belichick’s favorite response. “On to the next game.”

Mac Jones doesn’t consider apologizing

The rookie quarterback spoke about the ankle situation during his appearance on WEEI’s “Merloni & Fauria.”

“After I got hit pretty hard, I didn’t really know exactly what was going on,” Jones said. “I thought [Burns] had the ball and it was my job to try and make the tackle. That was pretty much it. I didn’t mean to hurt anybody or anything like that. I was just trying to tackle him and make the play.”

Panthers players weren’t too happy about this. Their head coach shared similar opinion. They all believe that Jones pulled out a dirty play. The NFL doesn’t consider fining the rookie, so it wasn’t really a dirty play.

It was a tricky situation and Panthers players lost the game to their opponents. New England is on a good winning streak and this increases their chances to make the playoffs. It will be a wild season as the team faces strong opponents later in the schedule. Hopefully, everyone stays healthy and strong to finish the season with success.
