Indeed, some young copy of Tom Brady. And it’s obviously too early to say he’s the next Tom Brady, but he plays a lot like him.

Jones has proven to be the most efficient quarterback from the NFL draft class 2021 so far this season. Statistically, Jones too leads his peers – 2,850 yards pass and 16 touchdown throws. Jacksonville Jaguars beginner quarterback Trevor Lawrence takes second place with 2,369 yards and nine touchdowns.

Mac Jones is the best QB beginner. The reason why? He throws a catchy dog ​​85% of the time … That’s the best thing in the ENTIRE league.

Interestingly, Jones has thrown a catchy dog ​​in 85% of cases this season. Forget that in 2021 he surpassed the NFL draft class by a mile, this statistic ranks him the highest among all NFL quarterbacks. Against the Tennessee Titans in Week 12, Jones had 71.9 percent of the finish – his third straight game with at least 70% of his passes.

Meanwhile, the Patriots won six games in a row, with an attack led by the first-year quarterback. Favre praised Jones’ achievements to date:

“He is an intellectual player and he will not beat you with his feet, but with his mind, hand and pocket. He has all those tools. And the team, honestly, plays extremely well in all phases and we know that they are well trained, but a lot can happen from now until the end of the year. “

Another stunning statistic to note is that Jones has a 65% + completion percentage in 10 games. That’s more than any other elite quarterback and two games ahead of stars like Tom Brady and Dak Prescott. Did we mention that he is a novice quarterback?
