Julian Edelman Gets Blunt About Mac Jones Expectations for the Patriots

Edelman has been saying that the Patriots need to run the ball a lot more this year, and that he is sick and tired of being asked about Mac. So, he decided to give the quarterback a taste of his own medicine. “You know what, I’m tired of talking about Mac. Mac is only going to be here for one year, and the only time I’ll talk about Mac is when we win,” Edelman said. “And if we don’t win, I’m going to talk about [Bill] Belichick, and Tom Brady. But all the rest of this stuff is irrelevant to me.”

Julian Edelman must be frustrated after being put in the slot.

Mc Jones is in a good position, but also in a difficult one. Jones was selected to play quarterback for the New England Patriots and was given the opportunity of a lifetime. Former Patriots receiver Julian Edelman knows what Jones is facing, and the Patriots fan favorite didn’t mince words when talking about what Jones is facing.

Mac Jones must perform important functions

With the election on the 15th. Getting one of the top five quarterbacks in the first round wasn’t easy. The odds were much lower when the first three picks were all quarterbacks. The quarterback from Alabama ended up on the Patriots’ roster, who quickly picked him up after the Chicago Bears made a trade for promotion and selected Justin Fields. Jones, who is 6-foot-3 and 90 pounds, performed well as a junior at Alabama last year. Not only did he lead the Crimson Tide to a championship, but he also threw 41 touchdown passes against four interceptions. He also completed 77.4% of his passes. The Patriots drafted him as a long-term solution to the quarterback problem. Last year, after the departure of Tom Brady, former MVP Cam Newton was drafted. The Patriots ended their first losing season since 2000 with a 7-9 record and a failing offense. Newton wasn’t expected to be the long-term answer to Brady, but Jones was. Although Newton was re-signed for 2021, he should be the link between Brady and Jones.

Julian Edelman says

. COMPARED TO: Miami Dolphins changed Mac Jones’ life with over $12 million When Edelman talked about what Jones wants from the Patriots, he didn’t mince words. Speaking on ‘s Michael Irvin Podcast on Thursday, Edelman said it won’t be easy for a rookie. Coming out in the middle of the first round with a quarterback is uncharted territory for Bill Belichick and the Patriots, and Edelman said he needs to be ready. When you play on Bills teams, (freshmen) usually become linebackers, Edelman said. It’s usually the corners. We usually have the 28th. A pick or two, we get a defensive player. That’s how Bill builds the team. But if you come in and become the quarterback that Bill Belichick chose, I mean, come on, man. All eyes will be on Jones. New England fans are used to wins, and another 7-9 season will not satisfy them. Jones, according to Edelman, will be under heavy pressure. He needs that eye, Edelman said. He needs that trust. What are you going to do? It’s not easy for this guy to play in New England, especially after Tom Brady, if he gets the chance and beats the other guy. It won’t be easy. It’s tough in this town. This town is bad, and it’s a working class town. The people of Boston, the people of New England want victories. We are used to that in all sports. There will be a lot of pressure on him.

Edelman said Jones could be thrown into the fire

. COMPARED TO: Julian Edelman lashes out at former NFL freshman after announcing his retirement Newton, who has already spent a year in New England, is expected to be the starter at the position when the season begins. Edelman thinks that could change. He thinks Jones is a real powerhouse and can make an immediate impact. He probably worked hard, Edelman said of Newton. That’s his modus operandi. Cam works hard. Now we have to see if he can work smart in the right areas, and if he does, give himself a chance to succeed. But he will also have to defeat the child, because the child is already there – little Mac Attack. This guy is a first round pick. It’s a true first round pick.
