Dante Scarnecchia praises Patriots for development of Mac Jones

Patriots Wire

Quarterback Mac Jones has been having a promising rookie season. With the New England Patriots sitting at 9-4 and at the top of the AFC East, Jones has been able to steer the ship for New England.

On the season, Jones currently has 2,869 passing yards, 16 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. Buoyed by a strong running game and timely decision-making, he has been able to handle the starting quarterback job. Less than a year after winning a title with Alabama, Jones has now put the Patriots in a position to succeed in their own right.

Jones and the Patriots have impressed many, including former offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia. Appearing on NBC Sports Boston’s Next Pats podcast, Scarnecchia was quick to credit both Jones and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, as the two have found a formula for winning football games, as transcribed by WEEI.

“I think they’ve done a magnificent job of bringing this kid along,” Scarnecchia said. “I think that, number one, of all the quarterbacks in the draft — and I’m not saying this guy’s this or this guy’s that — this guy was a perfect system fit for them. The perfect system fit. To bring him along the way that they’ve brought him along, I think they’ve done a superior job of coaching this guy.”

Spending 36 years with the Patriots organization, Scarnecchia has seen his fair share of solid quarterback play. Now, he will have the chance to watch a new era unfold under center, albeit this time from a different point of view.
