    Pats Draft Rd.1/15: QB Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones

    I just think we're underrating just how hard it is to be really good at processing, being accurate, on time and on rhythm and also overrating how deficient in those attributes mobile QBs are. We're not necessarily comparing Mac Jones to Lamar Jackson or Kyler Murray. Does Jones have an advantage...

    Pats Draft Rd.1/15: QB Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones

    Brady aside, the top QBs in the league are Mahomes, Rodgers, Allen, Watson, Wilson and Jackson. The non-mobile guys have pretty much gone away.

    How Good Do You Think Mac Will Eventually Be?

    I think he can be anything from Teddy Bridgewater to Matt Ryan with a Sam Bradford (hopefully with fewer injuries)/Kirk Cousins type career being a reasonable expectation.

    Packers: Rodgers’ Chances of Returning to GB in Jeopardy!

    The amount of "Brady wins because he always has a defense" people on Twitter shitting on the Packers for drafting a ton of defensive players in the first round in the last decade is humorous, to say the least.

    Grade the Pats Draft: How Did BB/Nike Do?

    Maybe they just think Jones at 15 is better than Fields/Lance + whatever it'd take to trade up for them, but they like the latter players more than Mac. Which would be fine, but wouldn't necessarily translate into "they got the guy they wanted".' I'm not saying they didn't like Mac Jones.

    Grade the Pats Draft: How Did BB/Nike Do?

    How can we possibly know that? Obviously they wanted Jones - they picked him - but he was also the fifth QB taken, what's to say they didn't have him ranked behind all the guys that went before him?

    Packers: Rodgers’ Chances of Returning to GB in Jeopardy!

    I think this is at least partly about Brady. Obviously Rodgers wasn't happy ever since the Love pick, but losing the NFCCG at home to Brady and the Bucs was the final straw. He saw Tom have immediate success with a franchise that apparently caters to his wants at every step and believes he's...

    Packers: Rodgers’ Chances of Returning to GB in Jeopardy!

    Rodgers has been injured in the past and was coming off 4 straight subpar seasons (for his standards). They picked a QB in the bottom of the first round. It's not the best "win now" move they could've made and if they did it without talking to Rodgers I understand him being upset, but it's not...

    I really like Barmore at this spot. Let's go!

    How Good Do You Think Mac Will Eventually Be?

    There's a pretty significant gap between these outcomes. I think you can win with Cousins, but not with Dalton.

    Rousseau looks like a 15 year old kid up there.

    Pats Draft Rd.1/15: QB Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones

    They got a first back for Cooks, though.

    Pats Draft Rd.1/15: QB Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones

    Brady just lacked definition, he looked like he never saw a weight room. Jones looks super doughy and pudgy.

    Pats Draft Rd.1/15: QB Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones

    LOVE Elijah Moore, but I think they'd have to trade up for him.

    Pats Draft Rd.1/15: QB Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones

    I like the pick because there was nothing on the board that really enticed me, it was either Mac or a trade down. He might be the 4th QB taken, but I think a solid argument can be made that Jones was BPA at that point, and that coupled with QB being their biggest need makes this a no brainer...

    j-man, I'd start him week one. The Pats window isn't open yet, but it might be for 2022 if Mac is for real. Let's find out this year.

    Reading training camp reports avidly to have some news on Mac Jones will be fun. So will preseason games. At the very least this pick provides that.

    I'll absolutely take Kirk Cousins at rookie salary.
