Stop making excuses for our bottom-third QB... His vision & decision-making ain't cutting the mustard.

It is amazing that "negative take" people always think they are realistic and logical. When in fact, Negative Nancies and Homers are the opposite sides of the same coin. Nancy is overly negative and Homer is overly positive - no discernable difference. At least Homer is happy in his/her delusion.

This is beyond simplistic. It's not one way or the other.

There’s really no scenario where you have this many guys that are either talented or heavy $ investments and everyone gets enough targets every week for people to feel like each guy is producing enough. Unless Mac is throwing for 500 yards a game, it’s just not going to happen.

Nothing for Both TEs... COMBINED?!?!

And Dorothy Parker DOUBLING Bourne's snaps while producing... NOTHING?!?

That is Un - ****ing - Acceptable FAIL from Billy, Phatt Matt & Mac. Period.

I wish the plays that did go to those guys were more successful/efficient- the back shoulder ball to davante, the flat route to Henry…
But I don’t see it as anything remotely close to what you’re saying. Given that jakobi and Agholor both had about 100 yards themselves and were able to consistently beat man coverage, and kendrick did a good job as well, I don’t care much about the distribution of yardage among our weapons.
I think just more so as a broader point, I don’t believe it to be worth it to worry about the “production” of each guy this year with there being so many pass catchers. Targets and such can be volatile. Sometimes your route is the right read, sometimes it’s not. Sometimes your position/role is a big part of the gameplan, sometimes it’s not.

I would agree that Parker hasn’t been too successful when called upon so far and I’d be happy giving some of his snap share to kendrick going forward.

IF Mac was like Bledsoe even thought he had his flaws I would be very happy I don't think he is. Bledsoe was a decent to good QB Mac right now is average maybe closer to below. Mac is closer to the bottom until he proves otherwise.
Drew could pass the ball.

Um, and, ski...

In the Starting Line-Up
From Lazar:
New England's offensive performance was undoubtedly better than a week ago, and the ability to successfully beat man coverage is a massive step in the right direction.
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick gave a detailed answer to a question about the team's lack of play-action attempts through two weeks, explaining that play-action doesn't have the same impact against teams that blitz at a high rate and use man coverage more frequently. As you'd expect, Belichick's reasoning is sound. With the Pats putting on tape that they can beat man coverage, maybe that leads to more zone and an uptick of play-action.
Overall, the coaches tape was much kinder to Patriots quarterback Mac Jones than our live viewing. Yes, he had two turnover-worthy plays and a few reads he'd like to have back. But Mac consistently made competitive throws against man coverage and read leverage/help well.
