Mac Jones says his offense is still trying to learn new base plays

FOXBORO — There have been moments during this training camp when the Patriots offense has looked disjointed. The run blocking hasn’t been there. The lack of pass blocking has often caused MacJones to have to run out of the pocket or to throw the ball away. The entire operation has looked out of sync.

After seeing the changes that have been made to the offense, it’s clear that Jones and the offense are struggling to work out the kinks of the new offensive system.

All offseason, we’ve heard how the Patriots offense has been streamlined in the wake of long-term offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels’ move to Las Vegas. Players said it’s been “simplified” with new terminology that makes plays easier to learn. After two days of padded practices, we’ve seen what the players are referring to when it comes to the changes on the offensive end.

Patriots quarterback Mac Jones takes part in a drill in June.  Jones and the offense have been struggling to work out the kinks with the new offensive system being implemented in this training camp.

On Tuesday, Jones explained that his offense is still trying to learn the new base plays. He’s not even at the point where he’s changing plays at the line of scrimmage since they’re in the infancy stage of this learning process.

“Right now, we’re just trying to run our base plays and see it on film. That’s the biggest part,” Jones said. “Every offense has a system where they can change the play and we do, too. When we get there, we get there, but right now it’s more about the fundamentals.”
