NFL World Felt Awful For Mac Jones On Monday Night

Patriots quarterback Mac Jones vs. Bears

NFL fans feel awful for Patriots quarterback Mac Jones this week. 

Jones, the second-year quarterback out of Alabama, was benched by Bill Belichick in favor of rookie Bailey Zappe vs. the Bears on Monday night. 

Patriots fans were in clear support of the decision. They booed Jones when he was on the field and went crazy when Zappe took his place. 

It's a pretty sad outcome for Jones, who just returned from an ankle injury. 

Bill Belichick isn't handling this whole situation very well. 

"How the Patriots are handling the Mac Jones and QB situation is an absolute shit show. That’s how you lose your locker room," said Ryan Spagnoli.

"Mac Jones will never forget the fans turning on him last night. He strikes me as a guy who will always hold that against them," said Ted Johnson. 

"I could be wrong and Bailey Zappe could go on to be the real deal but the way the Patriots are handling this QB situation a year after drafting Mac Jones is so bad. Young QBs have growing pains and you have to stick with your guy," said Kelsey Conway. 

Fans have already turned on Mac Jones in favor of Bailey Zappe. 

That's an extremely tough situation for a second-year NFL quarterback to be in.
