Do we think they're going to run a system that suits Mac more than Cam, and wait for him to be ready to run it?

Or start with a Cam friendly system that changes if/when Mac beats him out.

I want Mac to start game 1 but he has a lot to learn and needs to earn it...and gain the respect of his teammates. Not starting till then...whenever that is...unless Cam hands it to him with horrendous play.

Cam returned to start and PLAY.

He is guaranteed 3.5 million and the rest of his contract is attached to playing time, pro bowl, playoffs, etc.

The legend of Mac Jones gets better by the day.

If Newton was good enough to be guaranteed the starting job for 2021, the Pats would have given him far, far more than an one year deal with only $3.5 million guarantees. Newton got a high tier back up contract.

Sure Newton intends to start, but he is guaranteed nothing. And Mac Jones could take away the starting position as soon as the preseason if he clicks right away. I doubt he will, but Belichick is going to play the guy who will give him the best chance to win. If he can take Troy Brown out of the starting line up when his skills started to fade, he isn't going stick with Cam Newton if Mac Jones gives him a better chance to win. The only way he would stick with Newton in that situation is if he didn't think Jones was ready to start and starting him could set him back long term.

We would run the same system with each but call different plays.

It very well could be a bledsoe, brady situation. Newton most likely will get hurt and jones will step in

Cam will suck for a month then Bill will put Stidham in because that is what is "best for the team".

Not sure why the QB prospect unanimously believed to have the lowest overall ceiling but most pro ready capability to start right away should be on the bench.

Cam is playing on a prove it contract loaded with incentives to play. Not sit on the bench and drink Gatorade.

The Pats jumped in and resigned Cam so he would not reach FA.

The ballad of Mac Jones
by Triumph

6 foot 4 and arms of steel
The NFL said that he couldn't. be real
At Bama he wore Jimmys number 10
And played like a God amongst men
At pick 15, Cam laughed Ha Ha Ha
Stidham booked a flight and hotel to the Bahama
Eb Dawson could pass for his twin.
But all Mac the legend did at Bama was win.
Throwing. dimes on a rope
Giving NFL fans hope
That they would mimic Terrell Owens
Thats my Quarterback, my Mac, my Jones
He has not played an NFL game
To hear the Homers tell it MJ is the next superstar just the same.
But, Mac is NFL ready, they said
He started against the Jets and 5hit the bed.
So, here we are today, at the rear of the AFC
Homers adamant that Mac is a great one you'll see
Next year

Cam signed the contract he could get. He signed a prove it contract last offseason and he proved he didn't deserve a guaranteed starting job. Cam is now a guy who has to fight for his starting spot. He is not given anything. Not one team in the league would guarantee his starting spot at this point.

He is the odds on favorite to start right now, but he has to play well enough to keep that spot.

The cool thing about incentives is if the player doesn't meet them, you don't have to pay them. It's almost like it's not a big commitment.
