It would be fair to say that the 2022 New England Patriots offense was pretty bad.
That’s why they went and brought back offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien to help fix things.
Starting quarterback (for now) Mac Jones is excited to see how O’Brien can improve the offense.
“I think we’re all excited for this next year, and it just starts with putting your head down and going to work,” Jones said, via Boston.com. “We’ve got a great group of guys, and it’s all about how you come together as a team — players, coaches, everybody. So I’m excited to work with [O’Brien], and I know we all are, and it’s gonna be a great year. We’ve just gotta put the work in.”
While head coach Bill Belichick has deferred in naming Jones the starter for the 2023 NFL season, the third-year signal-caller is proceeding as if he is.
“[The offseason has] been good,” Jones said. “I think it’s important to just evaluate everything. Obviously, a day like today, it takes your mind off football and you get to enjoy the kids. But I’ve definitely been giving it a lot, just like every year, and just super excited to get back with the guys here soon and get to work.”
