By all accounts, Mac Jones had a terrific rookie season, leading the Patriots to a 10-7 record and a spot in the playoffs.
But, according to Lou Merloni, any average rookie quarterback could have done what Jones did.
“I’m convinced Davis Mills would have gotten you 10 wins and into the postseason," he said earlier this week on Merloni & Fauria. "I am 100% convinced of that. And if you don’t, then you don’t think Josh McDaniels and Bill Belichick [are good coaches]. They way he played down in Houston, the numbers, that’s not very far off playing for an awful football team.”
In 13 games, Mills completed 66.8% of his passes for 16 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
