"You're gonna have to serve somebody..."

Jones, a first-round draft pick from the University of Alabama, shared that he learned he was the starter in a team meeting. He described it as a tough day because it came at a time when many of his teammates were being released.

Asked whether he was surprised, Jones said on the radio program: "Not really. Like I always say, I prepare to be the starter. I got a chance to get a lot of reps. Nothing really changes. Just trying to be a good teammate, trying to learn the plays every day, fix what I messed up on and listen to [offensive coordinator] Josh [McDaniels] and all the guys in the quarterback room and take the advice."

Dang, I like this kid. :)

As opposed to most posters on Patsfans who were surprised.

Why would he be? He beat a quarterback who doesn't belong in the NFL, as evidenced by no team signing him, even as a backup. Mac played well, too...just glad the team didn't completely lose their mind after partially losing their mind in re-signing Newton.

I;m not so sure hes not fibbing a little. I think it was Jalen mills, Bourne who said that the day after cam was cut mac wasn't quite the same. He wasn't as relaxed as he was before, and his throws weren't as accurate, that he seemed to be felling the pressure of being named the starter.

Not doubting you, but do you have a link? Would be curious to see what they said

This is why I started the "all things Mac Jones" thread, so everything about him could be put in one thread and not scattered through the forum and easily lost.

I really hope you weren’t thinking that would be the career long Mac Jones thread? I was hoping that opportunity would fall to me with my “ Mac Jones Is Fat! ” thread, that I’m starting once I’m done here.

I appreciate the intent but mega-threads become a sewer of bickering drowning out actual football posts. I prefer more threads of limited scope.

As a long time viewer, but new poster, I appreciate the education!!! Only one thread per player. People get butt hurt if you don't follow that RULE.

What else is he gonna say? "Yeah it blindsided me completely out of left field, so I kinda have to cram playbook sessions with my girl in our yard now, hope it works out lol"
