This season, Mac Jones has already had his fair share of “welcome to the NFL” moments. Despite this, he has remained resilient and is working hard to correct his rookie mistakes. Despite the fact that the New England Patriots give their players off on Tuesday, Jones has been putting in extra work with head coach Bill Belichick on that day.
During his press conference on Wednesday, Jones talked about his Tuesday meetings with Belichick and why they’ve been so beneficial. He believes that Belichick’s strategy will help him develop as a quarterback. “We try to meet with the quarterbacks and stuff and figure out just situational stuff,” Jones said, according to NESN . “I can’t go into specifics on that, but it’s very helpful.” Just watching football, hearing it from a great coach like him, and getting advice from the guys in the room who have played for a lot longer than I have, just listening and trying to see what they see and pick up on things, and it definitely helps start the week off right, I guess you could say. ”
“It definitely helps just kind of start the week off right, I guess you could say.”

Mac Jones also stated that he is aware of the areas in which he needs to improve, but that he has chosen to keep that information private. “I think that’s just private stuff that we talk about,” Jones said, “but there are things that are obvious that I need to improve.” “I know what they are, and I’ve highlighted them in my improvement journal, or whatever you want to call it, so I know what they are, and there’s a lot of work to be done, and that’s part of the problem.” ”
Jones is in desperate need of a rebound game this Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after throwing three interceptions against the New Orleans Saints in Week 3.
