You've probably heard about one of the three, and heard of at least one of the others.
A picture and two poems. Those three things in Mac Jones' locker say a lot about the Patriots' sophomore QB, writes Henry McKenna.
Jones isn't a patient young man.
To say it more tactfully, he possesses a rare urgency to overcome obstacles. When he joined the Patriots, Jones didn't want to be the backup, so he seized the job from incumbent starter Cam Newton. When Jones got the starting job, he remained hungry to learn more — ravenous to win more. So the Patriots finished 10-7. He was hard on himself after losses, often publicly tearing into himself in postgame press conferences. And in the locker room with his teammates, he did the same thing, with veterans occasionally picking him back up. He isn't easily satisfied.
