Even in the losses, Mac makes you feel like he's the right guy. I'm a little surprised he's had as many turnovers as he has, but plenty of them were attributable at least partially to bad receivers, bad OL, or some combination.

As his surrounding offensive cast solidifies, I think the turnovers are going to slow down and it's going to become a lot more clear what we have in Mac even as a rookie.

Whether that amounts to a playoff spot this season, I kind of doubt it. But it won't be the QB's fault like it was last year.

While people here are overselling what the kid has done so far (he's been good, but some of the hype has gone overboard), there's no question that, at least for this season, we should all appreciate that he's the N.E. starter, and not Zach Wilson, Trey Lance, or Justin Fields.

Just imagine him with another year in the system and some muscle on him. Not to mention, a bona fide WR.
I think the wrs will be fine. What he needs is an ol that wont get him killed. Thats the reason the Pats havent been able to open up their offense. This lineup played great today. Like to see em keep it. F Trent Brown. Useless. Even when he supposedly gets healthy, let him be a depth player. Onwenu has outplayed him and should stay at rt. Keep Wynn at lt. Let them roll w.the same lineup for a while and get some continuity together. Hopefully Jonnu recovers quickly. We have very good rbs. We will see big production from the tes. And Mac will keep improving. The ol is the key.

I'd rather Mac have a bona fide OL. Everyone looks good against the Jets. But the Chargers DL might just kill Mac if they get open runs at him like he has had to suffer in earlier games this season. Oh and he would have had a bona fide WR already if our WR drafting wasn't akin to having the 'dog' make the picks. Maybe that's what BB did? Who knows but it's a putrefying track record in New England.

Still don’t understand why the niners pushed all their chips in when everyone knew Lance needed at least a year watching from the sidelines.
Honestly? I think they originally moved up for Mac Jones. But they got cold feet because their 'fans' didn't like the 'optics' of drafting an 'unathletic' Quarterback that high. In other words, Shanahan gave into public perception and sold himself on the athleticism and 'upside' of Trey Lance. Boy does that look like a HUGE mistake right now.

This PFT article sums ups the 49er's Folly nicely. All I can say is thank you Kyle Shanahan for either chickening out or making the wrong call or both. Thanks for letting Mac Jones slip all the way down to the Patriots.

Coming into today's game, even with a pass completion percentage of better than 70%, Jones had a passer rating of just under 90, and was 7:6 with TD:INT. He's been good, for a rookie. He certainly hasn't been "fantastic", and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. That's good, for a rookie. It's not him being "fantastic", as one poster wrote.

And that's o.k. He's a rookie. The goal, and expectation, is improvement over time, not "fantastic" out of the gate. And, as I noted,

at least for this season, we should all appreciate that he's the N.E. starter, and not Zach Wilson, Trey Lance, or Justin Fields




And none of that has anything to do with "that guy in Tampa", so go rail at some clouds.

There’s a list of teams we should thank for sure. NYJ, SF, Detroit, Carolina, Denver, Philly, Chicago.

Cut the B.S., your cautiously parsed Mac "assessment," calling him "oversold," etc. has EVERYTHING to do with obsessive Brady worship and hard-on for BB. You've made your allegiances abundantly clear -- Bucs/Brady/Bruce "Easy Chair" Arians. Just own it.
