We are just weeks away from the start of the NFL season and there are many questions surrounding the New England Patriots. The team has two routes they can take and that is with the Quarterback position. Obviously, as you know, the Patriots have an opening at the Quarterback position. Are they going to go with the former MVP, Cam Newton, or the rookie, Mac Jones? That is the million dollar question right now.
As we approach week 1 and just seeing the Patriots play their first preseason game a couple nights ago, it only makes sense that the team goes with the rookie, Mac Jones. All eyes were on the Patriots Thursday night and how many reps both Quarterbacks were going to get. Although Newton only got to play two series, the offense seemed more efficient and there was more of a sense of urgency when Mac Jones was playing.
To me, it felt like the play calling was more open and there was a lot of trust with the rookie. I believe everyone in the organization, coaches, and the players all want Mac Jones to start. However, there is one coach that gets the final say and that is Bill Belichick. Unfortunately, I don’t think Bill will give Mac Jones the start week one and he will go with Newton.
I want to see Cam Newton succeed but it doesn’t seem like he can with this team. It feels like the playbook is minimized when Newton plays and the team does not trust him. However, Newton has done nothing but respect the organization and has been a real leader in the locker room. So, I think Bill feels he owes it to Newton to play him week 1.
I don’t know what to expect when the Patriots host the Miami Dolphins week 1 but what I do believe is Newton has a real short leash. Fans and players will not tolerate bad play this season. If Newton struggles right from the start, do not be shocked Jones is in the game by, as early as, week 2.
