The New England Patriots have enough time to rest and recover ahead of their Week 12 game against the New York Giants. They are coming off a bad loss to the Indianapolis Colts and players are disappointed. Head coach Bill Belichick and offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien are also disappointed, but both coaches believe that Patriots players will be able to do better in Week 12. Fans weren’t too happy with the outcome in the game overseas.
There is a big question regarding the Patriots starting quarterback heading into the next game. Mac Jones was a starter since day 1, but the Alabama quarterback struggles more than ever. Belichick benched him multiple times throughout the season, but Bailey Zappe didn’t perform well enough to steal his job. Malik Cunningham earned a spot on the roster and pushed Will Grier to No.4 on the depth chart.
Patriots have to try harder in Week 12
Belichick made a few comments regarding the quarterback position. He did praise Grier, but suggested that the third-string quarterback won’t start the upcoming game against the Giants. Will Jones keep his starting job?
O’Brien didn’t reveal anything regarding this decision. The Patriots are eyeing all options on the table and haven’t made a decision yet.
“Speaking to reporters, #Patriots OC Bill O’Brien insinuates that a QB decision is still up in the air. “At the end of the day, Bill (Belichick) will make that decision at some point and we’ll go from there.””
Jones’ position is still in question and so is his future with the Patriots. If Belichick decides to move on from the Alabama quarterback, he will have to find a better option than him. We could all agree that Jones is the best New England has right now. He is a skilled player who seems to be dealing with an issue. He didn’t click with Matt Patricia as offensive coordinator last season. O’Brien took the job this time. Is Jones dealing with the Yips?
