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 More
Patriot Maven tackles various issues, such as the long-awaited emergence of Jonnu Smith and the fate of Chase Winovich in this weekend’s question-and-answer session with fans.
So a couple 'graphs in, one Miguel Benzan (@patscap) asks,
" Is this the game against his former team (Tennessee Titans) in which Jonnu Smith breaks out?"
SI runs down the same thing the rest of us do lol... he's being used as a blocker, he has a shoulder injury, but damn you don't pay the boy 12.5m apy to use him as a blocker... etc., concluding with...
In Week Twelve, the Patriots will be facing an aggressive Tennessee defensive front. As a result, the 6-foot-3 248-pound former Titan might be poised for a breakout performance as a ball carrier, or as the red zone target for quarterback Mac Jones.
"Might be"...."or".... we're at a magic 8 ball level of WTF with Jonnu
My gut says this is something we'll look back at and say "ohhhhhh," but right now it's a mystery.
