A recent departure from the quarterback room in Foxborough will be returning to it.

Grier, 28, had been waived from the organization’s 53-man roster last weekend to make room for the promotion of offensive tackle Conor McDermott. He subsequently went through unclaimed to become a free agent. Selected in the third round of the 2019 NFL draf ..read more

Photo by Maddie Meyer/Getty Images New England ranks 31st in the NFL in points per game. The New England Patriots hired offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien last offseason to help get the offense back on track. But through 12 weeks, the unit ranks 31st in the NFL averaging just 13.5 points per game. While poor quarterback play has been the main cause of those issues, O’Brien put the blame on himself for the offenses regression. “Things haven’t gone great for [Mac Jones] this year. I don’t think he’s the No. 1 guy to blame. If you want to blame anybody, blame me. I’m the one that designs it and i ..read more

New England Patriots links 11/28/23 - A tale of having no starting-caliber quarterback

Bailey Zappe about to be sacked | Photo by Kathryn Riley/Getty Images Daily news and links for Tuesday Still a lot of quarterback talk this week. The links contain quite a few opinions on how the Patriots can’t possibly start Mac Jones this week, how bad/broken he is, who broke him, etc... There was also a question about last week’s suggested quarterback competition - that Mac Jones supposedly won by starting vs. the Giants - wasn’t really a competition at all. The idea put out there that both QBs prepared per usual, weren’t told of any competition, or that Mac was ill-prepared because of redu ..read more

Photo by Elsa/Getty Images Notes and thoughts on the Patriots’ snap counts from their 10-7 loss to the Giants. The biggest story coming out of the New England Patriots’ 10-7 loss to the New York Giants was, once again, the quarterback position. Mac Jones got the start but after another disappointing half of football that included a pair of interceptions was pulled in favor of backup Bailey Zappe — the fourth time this season Jones was benched, and the second straight with the game still competitive. Neither passer fared particularly well, however. Jones completed 12 of his 21 pass attempts for ..read more

Photo by Matthew J. Lee/The Boston Globe via Getty Images A look at how the Patriots’ 10-7 loss to the Giants impacts their draft position. The New England Patriots continue to be well on their way to owning a top-3 selection in the 2024 NFL Draft. After losing their ninth game of the season on Sunday — a lackluster 10-7 effort against the New York Giants — the two-win team continues to hold the third overall pick heading into Week 13. And not just that: the Patriots, who are tied for the longest losing streak in the NFL at four straight defeats, also increased their wiggle room a bit. Not onl ..read more

Photo by Elsa/Getty Images Jones was benched for a fourth time this season in the Patriots’ 10-7 loss to the Giants on Sunday. After poor performances from both Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe at MetLife Stadium in Week 12, it seems another week of question marks at the quarterback position are on the horizon for the New England Patriots. For Jones, he hopes to turn the clock back in a sense as he prepares for whatever role he will hold this upcoming week. “For me, I do put a lot into it; I prepare very well,” he said Monday on WEEI’s Jones & Mego. “But at the end of the day, I just need to go ..read more
