The Patriots rookie is ‘playing his worst football,’ according to an NFL analyst.

Although the Mac Jones hype train is slowing, few are calling the New England Patriots’ rookie quarterback a “bad quarterback.”

Nick Wright of First Things First did just that recently.

He slammed Jones as hard as anyone we’ve heard outside of I’m Just Saying’s Paul Esden Jr., and he showed no mercy.

Wright not only referred to Jones as a “bad quarterback,” but also claimed that Bill Belichick “emasculated him on national television.”

“He stinks,” Wright stated emphatically.

“Except for one game against the (Jacksonville Jaguars), he’s been terrible since (Bill) Belichick emasculated him on national television.”

“He’s been awful.”

He’s playing his worst football at the worst time of the year, when all the other rookie quarterbacks are showing signs of improvement because they were given the opportunity to make mistakes early.”

To sum up Wright’s tirade, Jones is “a bad quarterback.”

“Mac Jones has been a complete disaster.

He’s playing his worst football at the worst time, when all of the other rookie quarterbacks are improving because they were given the opportunity to make mistakes early on.

The “emasculation” Wright refers to occurred in Week 13, when the Patriots defeated the Buffalo Bills on the road, and Jones only threw three passes the entire game.

Jones’ lack of involvement in the game was chastised by many critics.

Jones’ numbers have dropped since then, and the Patriots are now 1-3.

During that four-game stretch, he’s completed just under 60% of his passes, compared to 67 percent for the season.

Jones has also thrown six touchdown passes, five interceptions, and a fumble loss.

Jones’ numbers look even worse when Wright’s 50-10 thrashing of the Jaguars is taken out of the equation.

Even so, is he a “bad quarterback?”

Jones’ ascension to the position of future great quarterback came far too soon.

The same can be said of Wright’s negative and exaggerated assessment.

Jones has had a strong rookie season, and that won’t change even if he plays…
