Yesterday’s New England Patriots loss to the New Orleans Saints left anonymous comments coming from friends of Mac Jones. Punt analysts call Bill Belichick a coward. And things have gotten so bad in Foxboro that Michael Hurley suggests fans start expecting free ticket offers in the near future.

Tweet of the Day
Tweet still sounds better than post, so that’s what this will be called. Usually Patriots Football Now will try to have something a bit more uplifting as the “Tweet of the Day” or maybe something not related to the Patriots at all. But after yesterday’s 34-0 loss @Boston_Diehards seemed to speak for the many onlookers:
Mac has no playmakers
No offensive line
He also just isn’t good
All are true
