Patriots Coach Asks Fans to Stop Blaming Mac Jones

The New England Patriots are  troubles completing deep balls, but offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels wants everyone to know, it's not Mac Jones' fault. 

While some rookie quarterbacks don't win over trust overnight, McDaniels says he has full confidence his rookie QB can get it done and make all the throws. McDaniels met with the media on Tuesday and had this to say about the Pats first couple of games:

I trust him completely. Believe me, there's not a whole lot we're holding back for him. "I think it's importaevery gamnt to have the ability to throw the ball vertically (and) horizontally in e, and most pass patterns have that element available to them. I think there's a lot of things that go into that. You want to be able to test those areas of the field as you move forward, but I also want (Jones) to make smart decisions. I want him to protect the football, and I want him to be aggressive when it’s time to be aggressive.

So far the Pats are 1-1 with Jones as the starter and he's completing just under 74% of his passes and has 476 yards and one TD under his belt. Look for the Pats to keep throwing the ball and Jones to develop into one of the best passing QB's in the game.
