Patriots’ Mac Jones Discusses Pass Selection



Mac Jones

New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones hasn’t had the best 2022 regular season thus far as he tried to get comfortable within a new offensive system that is different from what he played in during his rookie season.

Patriots offensive line coach/senior advisor and presumed offensive play-caller Matt Patricia talked about Jones last week saying that there are three levels of throws and when he wants Jones to make them.

Jones spoke about that on Wednesday.

“I think, as always, short, medium and long, however it comes, it just goes down to taking what the defense gives whether that’s the short, or the medium or the long,” Jones said (h/t ClutchPoints). “If your long guy’s open then you want to give him the ball. If he’s not, then work through your progressions, things like that. But it always goes back to taking what the defense gives.”

Jones has thrown for 993 yards, 3 touchdowns and 7 interceptions for New England this season.
