Nothing went smoothly for the New England Patriots on Sunday. They lost their game against the Washington Commanders, a team that seemed to be tanking at the NFL Trade Deadline. Team president Jonathan Kraft appeared to be caught on camera saying “we’re not good enough” about his team. Then a rumor circulated on X about Patriots cornerback Jack Jones.
It was reported that Jones had “liked” a post in which an account called Pats & Sabres 2.0 / Silver Pants Truther tagged him. The post read:
“Yo @presidentjacc you really shoulda just pleaded guilty at this point”
This was in reference to Jack Jones offseason court case. Charged were dropped in exchange for pretrial probation and community service. Obviously, an athlete responding to a tweet (even by liking it) does not go unnoticed on social media.

For his part, Jack Jones seemed to deny this occurred. While not addressing specifics, he posted: “Y’all say anything I ain’t gone lie” after talk of his response spread.

So did Jack Jones like this tweet? If so, what did he think it meant? Jail is better than playing for the New England Patriots? Or better than barely playing (he didn’t play until the second quarter and his snaps were noticeably down)? Tough to say, but another distraction is not something Jack Jones or the New England Patriots need.

Fun Fact of the Day
New England Patriots are currently 2-7. It is the first time since 2000 the team has started 2-7, but it is not the worst start in franchise history. That honor belongs to the 1992 New England Patriots, who began the season 0-9. The team finished 2-14 and selected QB Drew Bledsoe with the first overall pick in the 1993 NFL Draft. In fact, the Patriots had three worse starts than this one over a four-year span in the early 1990’s:
