I would rather he just be the next Mac Jones, and keep that level of thought process. Its probably good that Cam was sandwiched between, so he takes over for Cam rather than Brady.After watching Lazar's video analysis, I can see why scout and analysts rated him downward. Not a single highlight reel throw in a 40-minute video! No super-tight window throws. To some it means receivers must be open for Jones to complete a pass. What Lazar described was manipulating the defense and doing quick reads and rapid decision making and throwing to the open man. And in a couple of the plays, throwing the man open.
Brady has been called a system QB and dink-and-dunk passe from the beginning. No one except Pats fans and a some analysts saw that decision making, accurate throws, and reading the defense, not 70-yards-in-the-air passes, was what made Brady so good, what is between his ears. That was the real basis of his success, and analysts aren't going to change their minds now. They still don't make the connection that Brady's biggest attribute was his brain.
Jones isn't likely to be the next Brady, but he has a better shot to be the next Patriots franchise QB than I thought, and I already thought very highly of him. Time will tell, and I hope he sits until 2022, but I have high hopes.
