The New England Patriots had to trust their rookie quarterback in the last couple of games and it went really well for the team. New England almost beat the Green Bay Packers and destroyed the Detroit Lions. The agent of Bailey Zappe knows that he’d be a really good player one day and he is here to trash those who ignored the Patriots rookie.
Zappe stepped in as a replacement for both Mac Jones and Brian Hoyer. Jones suffered a high ankle strain and Hoyer is clearing his concussion protocol. Zappe understood the assignment and gave the Packers a terrible headache. He was brilliant against the Lions and his grandfather wants Bill Belichick to give him the keys to the offense. It won’t be an easy task and Belichick won’t make such a drastic change at this point. Yes, Jones didn’t play his best football in the first three games of the regular season, but Belichick had a reason to trust him.
Agent Nicole Lynn trusts Bailey Zappe
The agent knew that Bailey Zappe would help his team win games. He called out teams who passed his client in the NFL Draft. The Patriots got him in the fourth round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
“Trying to restrain myself from texting every team who told me Bailey Zappe couldn’t play in the NFL,” Lynn tweeted after the Week 6 win.
Belichick likes Zappe and everything he brings to the field. He may not have a strong experience like other players, but hey, his potential is wild.
“Yeah, I mean again, he learns every day, whether it’s practice, or meetings, or game experiences,” the head coach said. “He has pretty good instincts, but there is a lot for him to learn. There are things today that he learned from and he was able to take advantage of and make a couple plays. He had the opportunity. Again, it’s all performance. It’s not turning the ball over or a strip sack. It’s a good thing.”
Tight end Jonnu Smith said that Zappe is trying his best to improve his game. The rookie did a wonderful job in the last couple of weeks. “He is making a ton of improvements, looks comfortable and settled down trying to figure it out,” Smith said. “He knows he has a lot to improve on. For him to have that mindset, he has made a lot of strides in his game. Hats off to him these past couple weeks, coming in doing a helluva job. I couldn’t be more proud of him.”
