Bill Belichick took at shot at his quarterback Mac Jones saying he did not have enough arm strength to attempt a Hail Mary at the end of the game, but that did not sit well with Mac Jones.
On Monday, Jones appeared on “Merloni, Fauria & Mego” and said he did not agree with Belichick’s assessment. He was asked if the throw was too far and he quickly responded No.
“No, I think we obviously have a plan in that situation. You have to think about everything in that situation and that’s something that he did and that’s his job and he’s done that for a long time. Whatever the play call is I’m gonna run it and do it the best I can. If it was a Hail Mary, it was a Hail Mary.”
Right now everyone wants to blame someone for the mental breakdown. I am not sure who should take the blame but it was a boneheaded play. Players have to know that you have a shot at overtime. I am not sure I totally agree with the call, but the call was not a bad move. The throw backs were the bad move. So if you were to blame someone I would have to blame Jacoby Meyers, because he has been in the league long enough to know better.
