I was never "The Pats need an elite WR" type of guy, but tonight is an example of proving me wrong. The league has changed. An elite WR can be the difference for a lot of teams. The biggest difference between Mac Jones and Kirk Cousins tonight wasn't the two QBs. It was Justin Jefferson.
Yeah cause the Pats had Tom Brady, turns out every needs a lot of things when your QB goes from being the best to the bottom 10.

Shows how bad the offense has been that people are throwing a party for the quarterback and offense that they reached the mid 20s against a team who gave up 40 last week, not so fast for me next week it could be easily back to same old same old.
I predicted a good Mac performance tonight and hopefully a break thru for him for the rest of the season.... because of the D he was facing tonight. I truly hope he builds on this.

But a couple folks here will be feverishly working Mac's shaft because of his stats tonight while being quick to dismiss Zappe who only succeeded because it was against the Cleveland and Detroit D's according to them. Fair enough. Minnesota's D is no better. I know of one shaft master here who won't bring that up tonight.

I think Mac can bring similar results the rest of the season. Hope so.

Can I join the chorus that the announcers were partisan? Tony Dungy sucks.

Mute the sound. Life is too short to get all upset at what’s being said.

Try it. It’s weird at first. But you’ll get used to it.

Or put the radio on and listen to Bob and Scott.
Dungy admitted at the outset of the broadcast that he’s a Vikings fan. I generally like Tirico, though. Garrett just simply does not belong in a broadcast booth.

Agholor drop was bad . Where is the speed.mac placed it perfectly .

Thornton is absent all along. Where is his speed ? Does he just get knocked off in LoS. Seems a big whiff of draft pick for now.

There is nothing wrong with the play calling.

The plays are all there for the taking.

Yeah, he is a difference maker. THE difference maker.

He was obviously the best player on the field for both teams.

The problem wasn’t them being ‘partisan’. That crew was straight abysmal announcing, very boring. Mainly because of Jason Garrett.

Well hopefully he proves me wrong, but I just don’t see anything special with him. Serviceable starting qb that we will need to be elite talent around him on offense and defense, and it still might not be enough.
He's not Tom Brady if that's what you're thinking

Okay, go find an elite QB that's available. I'll wait.

Tua wasn't good until he got two Top tier Wr's
Allen wasn't top tier til he got Diggs
Maybe we should go grab rodgers, he's elite right, or right he's surrounded by trash and it shows.

Of all the dogshit calls or non calls, Hunter Henry's incompletion is at the bottom of the list. It was the right call. Don't make me defend it any further. You've ALWAYS had to survive the ground on a TD. Ball touched the ground, ball was loose after, easy incompletion
sniff sniff sniff. I smell another doom and gloomer troll coming out from under his bridge

Mods really need to do a better job a sniffing out these obvious trolls that don't post for weeks and then pop up. Board would be in a lot better state if these guys could only post in the practice squad forum
You mean Mac Jones is not Patrick Mahomes? Clutch is the whole team. Clutch would have been Myers catching that 3rd down. You think Brady would do it without Edelman and Gronk making plays when they need them or Kelce making plays.
Yeah cause the Pats had Tom Brady, turns out every needs a lot of things when your QB goes from being the best to the bottom 10.
Tom also had Edelman and Gronk

Because I’m not a mac jones fan boy who thinks he’s not a franchise qb? Thanks for the laugh

Can you, uh, point me in the direction of said shaft master?

The anti Mac people coming on here and proving they are some combination of full of **** and stupid.

Mac throws for a career high 382 and they immediately come on here to post how Mac isn’t good.

If you watched this game and thought Mac was the problem instead of the defense/special teams then you’re a moron.

Exactly

After a game like this, all of his haters should really take a week long vacation and sit on the sidelines for a better opportunity to beat their wardrums

but they wont.

I mean look at Tua. Last year fans wanted to move on and he looked average. They get Tyreek Hill now he's a top QB.

Eagles were looking to move on from jaylen Hurts. They get AJ brown. Now he looks like a franchise guy.

It's the league now days.

The defense was not an elite defense tonight. This has been true consistently against better offenses this year.
Not enough qb pressures tonight.

Pats final record could actually be 8-9 with losses to Miami, Buffalo twice, Cincinatti
wins against Arizona, Raiders

This will keep them out of playoffs and put them in late teens for draft picks...not great

we scored 26 pts with all the crap plays. D shouldve held better.Sometimes have to tip your cap to a great player but pats really beat themselves with penalties like running into the kicker. Refs also totally onsided, didnt call facemask on jones, hold on dugger , overturned TD. All turned out to be huge.

It's his own fault. He's filled the coaching staff with his kid, Patricia, judge....guys who wouldn't be coaching on any other team in the League
Yup. And also any talent issues.... well he's the effective GM.

Bill doesn't get excuses at this point. The team has no defensive coordinator and no official offensive coordinator. How you think that's a good idea is beyond me. The only thing I can think of is that cynically Belichick didn't want to appear to being showing nepotism by giving his kid the DC job and is just giving him a lot of leeway on defense while he holds his hand through it, and then Patricia and Judge became available after sucking it up and Bill rather than giving his SB winning DC back the job, wouldn't because his son is there now, so he tested them out on offense and likewise knew he wouldn't look too hot giving two guys who aren't qualified to be OC's the job.
