Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has created plenty of mystery as to who will replace Josh McDaniels as New England’s offensive play-caller.

But Joe Judge confirmed last week that he’s working with the quarterbacks, which means Judge is largely responsible for continuing Mac Jones‘ progression from the quarterback’s first season.

Jones spoke to the media on Monday, following the team’s first OTA practice and had some positive things to say about his new position coach.

“He’s done a great job coaching us. He’s seen a lot of football. Obviously, he’s been around football for a long time, whether that’s as a head coach, special teams, playing the position himself, so he has knowledge that is very beneficial to me as a quarterback,” Jones said, via Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald. “Obviously, I’m going to learn with him. The goal is to kind of teach each other, move along, and take what he knows, take the experiences that I have, and combine them, and work together as a great team.”

The 15th overall pick of the 2021 draft, Jones completed 68 percent of his passes for 3,801 yards with 22 touchdowns and 13 interceptions as a rookie. No matter who is calling the offensive plays, the Patriots will need Jones to be better in 2022 to make a deeper postseason run.

  1. What else would we expect him to say?

    Glad to hear he’s at least arrived to OTAs in really good shape. That’s a great start

  2. As long as Jones does the complete opposite of what Judge tells it will be beneficial for him.

  3. Mac Jones was already better than Daniel Jones last year. As in WAY better.

  4. All you have to do is look up the numbers. DJones has never had a year close to what MJones did last year. Denial is a river in Egypt.

  5. The Patriots will put the offense in Mac’s hands. They must have seen growth from him to take the training wheels off.

  6. As long as Judge leaves those QB sneaks from victory formation on 3rd and 8 from your own 5 at MetLife stadium.
