Why Mac is the right choice?

Cam Newton is out in New England. Is that a shock? Not really. Jones had outplayed Cam in the preseason, and can you really imagine that Cam wants to settle on being a backup to a young talent like Jones. Sure Newton may pop up as a backup, but maybe a trip to a place like Indianapolis, Philadelphia, or any number of teams without an established quarterback would be a move Cam may want to make. If Jones works out as the starter, Cam will never be an NFL quarterback barring injury. He could go and have a shot at other places, maybe being the starter, or at least that maybe what he thinks.

Mac Jones is the perfect fit in New England.

Jones is a quiet, unassuming, humble man who fits the Patriots way. Plus, the Patriots picked him 15th, which tells me that Belichick believes that Jones is the guy, and if you think he’s the guy, you might as well play him and find out.

Mac played college football at Alabama, and the head coach Nick Saban and Belichick are close friends, and Saban was a coordinator in Cleveland under Belichick. The trust Belichik has with Saban tells me that Saban said all of the right things about Jones.

Can Cam Newton still be an effective NFL starter?

The arm strength does not seem to be what it was before his injuries; with that being said, the lack of talent at the receiver position last year may make it hard to determine that. However, Newton is still effective as a runner and, in the right situation, could have some solid years left. Overall though, can Cam Newton lead a team to the Super Bowl? Probably not, but in his 30s and with the major injury he had, it’s hard to see him playing at the level he once did.

Mac Jones is now the face of the franchise.

Suppose Bill Belichick wants another Super Bowl ring or even a playoff appearance. He has to be right about Mac Jones, as Belichick isn’t getting any younger. So, in the end, I think this is the right choice by the Patriots to be all in on Jones. I will also make this prediction with Mac Jones at Quarterback; the Patriots WILL make the playoffs this season as a Wild Card.
