Mac's caught this guy's attention... huh.
Mathieu is applying for a Pats job next year obviously, he wants to win another ring, because he is aware with Sorensen and this Chiefs D# they ain't winning **** soonIs that an underhanded dig at his own QB?
I love when he circles Belichick standing on the sidelines with his arms crossed as everyone else jumps around and says, "Even Bill Belichick’s fired up. Look at the excitement and the enthusiasm he’s showing on this play. It is awesome."
Mac even has Peyton‘s attention. Called that throw to Henry in the Browns game awesome- which it was. Gotta love that.
That you LJ? Patriot Maven Mailbag, Part II: Jonnu’s Revenge, Mac in the Cold and More New England Patriots Questions - Sports Illustrated New England Patriots News, Analysis and MoreWhen are we going to discuss Mac and the cold weather coming? Does he need to reach out to Brady or Hoyer can bridge that gap?
I think I saw the headline and it was the catalyst behind the post. I did not open the link however, but I looked at where Mac grew up and wanted to open the discussion up here too.
What gives you the confidence that he will be fine? Have we seen him even wear a glove before?
1) he has the best coach on the planet who will prepare him.What gives you the confidence that he will be fine? Have we seen him even wear a glove before?
Slightly off topic (maybe at least topic adjacent): Watching Daniel Jones play the Bucs last night, it's staggering the difference between him and Mac. That team has offensive talent: Golladay, Toney, Engram, Barkley, even Booker did well filling in for Saquon while he was out. But you watch Daniel at the line, and he just looks... NERVOUS. I know different QB's have different styles. Peyton was basically a flappy bird pre-snap, but you never felt like he was out of control. If anything, it looked like he was intentionally playing up the adjustment angle to throw a lot of false info at the defense. But Daniel Jones was manic, to the point where I felt like he was overthinking plays he didn't have the poise to standard-think in the first place.
There was one in particular where he was dancing back and forth from under center to shotgun, motioning guys out, then stopping them, then motioning them back out. Made maybe seven adjustments on his skill guys, then handed the ball to Booker for a 1 yard loss. Even the announcers said, "All that for THAT run!?"
Then you watch Mac (in his first year, as opposed to Daniel's 3rd), and he's calm, he's composed, and feels like his motions are minimized. He does what he needs to do pre-snap, then gets on with it. His confidence is noticeable, even though he makes some rookie mistakes. And it's not like Daniel doesn't have an experienced OC as well. Jason Garrett, for all his faults as a head coach, got that job because he was a great OC with a good track record developing QBs.
Anyway, just a little appreciation for getting the better Jones in the middle of the first round.
Daniel Jones can make NFL caliber throws but doesn't have it upstairs. Some of those throws he made last night were just mind-boggling. Mac is way better.
7) Mac has Hoyer to tell him any tricks of the trade Hoyer and Brady developed.1) he has the best coach on the planet who will prepare him.
2) he has a great running game and defense to help him
3) he has big hands - bigger than TB12s
4) he is a very accurate, short passer who throws a tight, nose down spiral with good velocity. Perfect for in-climate weather.
5) he throws a very soft, catchable ball. Good for WRs who have cold hands.
6) he may wear gloves. he may not. i'm sure he'll make the right decision.
So....it's not something i'm really worried about right now.
