Best Situational NFL QBs: Where Does Latest England Patriots Mac Jones Rank?


As a rookie, Mac Jones began all 17 games and threw for 3,801 yards and 22 touchdowns while leading the Latest England Patriots to 10 wins and a playoff berth. So, he will need to have done something right.

But not enough – in accordance with a recent report by USA Today – to be ranked among the many NFL’s best quarterbacks making quite a lot of throws or faced with diverse scenarios. While Jones may impress teammates along with his leadership and be considered one of the Pat’s top three players heading into 2022, the report says that – in certain situations – Jones isn’t as effective because the Vikings’ Kirk Cousins and even the Giants’ Daniel Jones.

We’re not suggesting Jones has the athleticism of Lamar Jackson, the creativity of Patrick Mahomes, the pocket presence of Tom Brady or the accuracy of Aaron Rodgers, but surely he’s good at something?

But, no, Jones was not mentioned in any of the report’s 16 categories. As an alternative, the “winners” were …

Perhaps it’s just us, but is not a no brainer that Bill Belichick is glad to have Jones over the likes of Cousins and Jones?
