Mike Giardi: ‘not surprised’ that someone close to Mac Jones made ‘garbage’ comment
During this morning’s Toucher & Rich, Rich brought up how there are concerns about Jones and how a source close to Jones commented that it’s tough for a QB to perform well in these conditions when he’s surrounded by “garbage”. Mike Giardi, who covers the New England Patriots for Boston Sports Journal, expressed his lack of surprise at such comments from Jones’s camp, explaining that people who are invested in a player tend to defend them, especially when things are not going well.
FOX Sports’ Henry McKenna reported some strong criticism of the personnel on the Patriots offense that was attributed to “a source close to Jones.”
“No matter how good of cook you are, you cannot make garbage taste good,” the source reportedly said. “Even if it was not Mac at QB, what QB would want to play here under these conditions?”
They also touched on the mental aspects of the game, how criticism can affect a player, and the importance of maintaining confidence. The conversation also touches on the team’s performance, coaching decisions, and the team’s current state. Fred hammered the need for a top draft pick to secure a quarterback for the future, as the season seems to be going downhill.
