Zolak & Bertrand live from the first day of Patriots training camp, give their immediate observations on what they’re seeing from Mac Jones and Matt Patrcia’s role on offense.
Beetle: Zo do you feel that from what you’ve seen today, that he’s (Mac Jones) improved his release at all?
Zo: Yeah, he looks like Brady from a compact standpoint. I’m talking seat at right here in the middle, two hands on the ball between the one and the zero, boom balls out. Fifth step hits, the feet are quick, chop it, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, ball out. And that’s all in the short intermediate stuff. So, that tells me he knows, first of all, where he’s going with the ball as opposed to maybe last year, where you want to see it real quick and then you throw it and that’s where guys get trouble, young guys have come into the league.
Beetle: We’ve got, I would say, a development on the field. Zo is going to tell you, I told you so. That’s what Zo is going to do.
Zo: Told you so.
Beetle: Called it as he as we say around here, he nailed it. So the Patriots offense is working on some red zone stuff.
Zo: Red zone seven on seven. So this is an offensive drill.
Beetle: There is one particular coach who has relocated himself on the field, has a walkie talkie with a direct line to the quarterbacks helmets and is calling in plays. And the person who was doing that for the Patriots offense is Matt Patricia. Matt Patricia is calling the offensive plays for the Patriots here on day one of Patriots training camp.
