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

FOXBORO — There have been times this training camp when the Patriots’ offense has been disjointed. The execution lock has not been there. The lack of pass blocking has often caused Mac Jones to have to run out of the pocket or throw the ball away. The entire operation has been 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 fix the problems with the new offensive system.

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

‘It just goes faster’:With new plays, the Patriots are excited about a streamlined offense

Patriots quarterback Mac Jones participates in a drill in June.  Jones and the offense have been struggling to resolve issues with the new offensive system being implemented at 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 changes plays at the line of scrimmage, as they’re in the early stages of this learning process.

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