Fred Toucher: The team has completely tuned out Bill Belichick, and rightfully so!
In another disappointing game for the New England Patriots at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, they faced turnovers from both Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe, contributing to their 10-7 loss against the New York Giants. The Patriots, now with a 2-9 record in the 2023 season, had a chance to tie the game, but rookie kicker Chad Ryland missed a crucial 35-yard field goal attempt, securing the defeat.
Mac Jones had a tough day, going 12-of-21 for 89 yards with two interceptions and a low 27.8 passer rating. Due to his struggles, he was benched after the first half. Bailey Zappe took over in the second half, leading one touchdown drive but finishing with 9-of-14 for 51 yards and an interception.
During this morning’s show, Fred Toucher expresses strong criticism of the New England Patriots’ handling of the quarterback situation, particularly focusing on Mac Jones. He argues that Jones’ performance and the coaching decisions reflect poorly on Bill Belichick, stating that Belichick is no longer an effective NFL head coach. The hosts discuss the possibility of Belichick being traded to another team and question his coaching abilities in the current NFL landscape. The conversation highlights frustration with the team’s recent performance and coaching decisions.
