Dynamic Patriots Rookie Has New Nickname

New England Patriots rookie Marcus Jones receives all the attention he deserves and he even got a new nickname. Yes, Patriots players like to come up with nicknames for younger players. Jones met expectations early in the season and fans are more than excited to see him play in Year 2.

The Patriots are coming off of an ugly loss to the Buffalo Bills. They suffered a 24-11 loss on Thursday and fans are disappointed. Jones was one of the better players in the night. He earned words of praise and NFL experts praised his explosiveness. Head coach Bill Belichick made a good deal in the offseason.

The Patriots rookie earned his new nickname

Belichick gave Jones a chance to play offense in Thursday’s loss. We can easily say he got the best of this opportunity. The Patriots rookie took a slot-receiver screen 48 yards for a touchdown. Patriots players didn’t score other touchdowns in the game and coaches will probably give Jones more playing time in the next few games. According to Greg Bedard from The Boston Sports Journal, the Patriots can rely on Jones and Tyquan Thornton. These two can make a powerful duo and help the team win even more games in the regular season.

NFL analysts would bet on this duo in the same way they bet on the Miami Dolphins Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. Is Jones really a “Baby Tyreek”? That’s what Bedard said. Of course, Jones needs more experience and playing time to develop his full potential. He has a long way to go and Patriots coaches better use his explosiveness on the floor. Jones could be the Patriots return man and big-play man on offense. He can easily develop into one of the better rookies in the NFL. Belichick found a true gem and the list of opportunities is endless!

The Patriots may have lost the game to the Bills, but they are more than motivated to make the big game this season. They look good on the field except for the very few mistakes players made. Some analysts would criticize coaches for their scheme. Everyone has to pick a side, right?
