    No it's not Mac Jones for the very reason they will run the football. Cam Newton is a better runner. The most important down is first down. Dano is an idiot.

    He first needs to learn the playbook, then we need to see him execute this off-season, now I think we could see a dual QB for the first few games if Cam Struggle's. Right now tho he's the third QB on the depth chart

    @BijinXOXO not for day 1. If Cam totally blows the first couple games he could get benched quick. But I don’t think he’ll bench him day 1 unless Mac is playing like the next Tom Brady in training camp

    The kid hasn't even shown up for his first practice and Orlovsky wants to just hand him the job? The NFL used to develop these guys want to just throw rookies in there and hand them starting's no wonder so many young QBs flame out quickly.

  28. Wayne P

    I'd rather Mac Jones sit behind Cam for a year. A lot of great QBs had a year to develop and learn the system prior to starting.. (Mahomes, Rodgers, Brady, etc.) and let's be real Mac Jones ain't no Luck/Manning type prospect.

    I said 3 years ago that New England was going to have some very lean times in the future and patriot fans said you don’t know what your talking about but I was obviously right. I think the patriots will be at best 7-9 at best mac Jones will be a bust or at best an average quarterback and midway through the season Jarret Stidnum will be the stater.

  32. Bruce Terrell

    Bruce TerrellПре 10 дана

  34. Andrew Martin

    Andrew MartinПре 10 дана

    Everyone will see that even Stidham will look better than Newton in preseason, so we know Jones will be. When you beat out a 5 star recruit last year and then run the table to win the title in a pro style offense, and Newton looked that bad last year, and got worse as the season went, the proof will be in the pudding.

  35. Mac Anthony

    Mac AnthonyПре 10 дана

    bottom line, whoever will be the day-1 starter, the offense will be built around that player... Cam or Mac... they will roll with Cam though because of experience... Cam will rebound this season... folks forget with all that happen this past season with the Pats, Pats managed to still muster 7-wins with no real offensive scheme and no training camp (Cam was signed literally at the last second)... any other team would have easily been 3-13..... hopefully with a full roster, training camp and properly implemented offensive scheme to fit whoever will start this season (most likely Cam), Pats are a playoff team this coming season.... 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🔥🔥

    As a pats fan, I wouldn’t mind if Mac sat behind Cam for a year to learn the playbook and to also have time to improve his skills even more, but I also wouldn’t mind if he beat out Cam and was the starter from game 1. Let’s get to training camp first tho 😂

  47. J.J.

    J.J.Пре 10 дана

    It’s proven to be beneficial when a rookie QB sits for a season to learn the NFL game. Cam is a pro with a tremendous work ethic and Mac will hugely benefit from watching him for a year.

    @G Blair Learning what it takes to be a franchise QB in the NFL. Cam obviously spends a ton of time watching tape, lifting, studying the playbook, getting treatment, etc. Say what you will about his performance as of late but Cam is a consummate professional and Mac will benefit tremendously from watching how he conducts himself.

    If they want their QB to succeed, he needs a minimum of one year with the clipboard. That process is much more efficient in the nfl other than the baptism by fire route that’s been washing QBs out of the nfl in 2 years over the past decade or so.

    it really doesn’t matter if his team is first round talent, it matters if they were dominant against the competition. Trey Lance’s team was arguably more dominant against their opponents than Bama were against theirs. Same with BYU and Zach Wilson.

    Xavier SmithПре 11 дана

    So what happens if you start Mac Jones right away and he fails miserably with all of that talent around him and ends up like Dwayne Haskins. All of this nonsense is about fear that Cam Newton will return to from and have a dominant season now that he finally has elite talent on the offensive side of the ball. Mac Jones should learn the playbook and be given a real opportunity to succeed when he finally takes the field instead of being rushed because racist people are scared that Cam Newton will have a great season.

  102. Jerry James II
