It's been an ugly training camp for Mac Jones and the New England Patriots offense so far. Luckily, the second-year quarterback still has a few weeks to get things figured out.
When asked about his and the offense's struggles this week, Jones made it clear he's "going to figure it out." History backs him up, too.
Jones wasn't a clear-cut starter from the moment he stepped on Alabama's campus. He had to wait his turn behind Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa, but he never lost focus, became a star and won a title with the Crimson Tide.
The second-year NFL quarterback is confident he'll now get things figured out with the Patriots.
“I’m going to figure it out,” Jones said, via Mike Reiss of ESPN.com. “I always have. I always will. At the end of the day, you’re going to have your ups and downs with anything new, but I’ve learned a lot of different systems and the guys around me have too. We know what football looks like, we know what a good play looks like. . . . It just needs to be more consistent. We all trust in each other at the end of the day. When there’s 10 people that look into my eyes, I know they’re going to trust me to do the right thing on game day.”
If Mac Jones can't figure it out, the Patriots are in trouble. Plus, Robert Kraft has already made it clear that Jones is under immense pressure this upcoming season.
Will Jones get this all figured out, like he said he will? We'll find out in a couple of weeks when the 2022 season commences.
