Mac Jones had a down year in 2022 and his frustrations could be seen boiling over multiple times during games as he became frustrated with the offense.
The New England Patriots quarterback found himself in head coach Bill Belichick’s “doghouse” after he reportedly reached out for help regarding New England’s offensive woes this past season.
NBC Sports analyst Chris Simms spoke about the situation during an appearance on WBZ radio’s “Zolak and Bertrand” show as he stated that “credible” sources gave him the impression that Jones became “frustrated” with the Patriots’ struggles. Simms revealed Jones had made calls to Alabama for help and Bill Belichick found out about it.
“I do think he was a little bit in the proverbial doghouse with Belichick a little bit because, yes, I was told that he was calling around and trying to ask, ‘Hey, we need some ideas for the offense.’ And word got back to Bill and that was why he was in the doghouse a little bit.”

One would think Jones reached out to Bill O’Brien, who spent the last two seasons as the Crimson Tide’s offensive coordinator before accepting the same position with the Patriots.
Jones regressed in most categories during his second season, throwing 14 touchdowns in as many games. Many situations on the field caught him yelling “Throw the f—– ball” at offensive play-caller Matt Patricia during a loss.
If Jones wanted Bama’s help, he has it with O’Brien now.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
