Mac Jones explains why Bill Belichick blasted him in New England Patriots training

New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones has taken the blame after receiving the hair dryer treatment from coach Bill Belichick at practice. The 24-year-old claimed that "it was my fault" after being on the wrong end of a Belichick blasting during a two-minute drill. The coach ordered a drill to be done again after the offense failed to get the ball into the end zone on the drive, and not just score a field goal.

"That was fun, I guess, but it was my fault. I think it was just a miscommunication between all of us. But it was fine. It was a good learning experience.

So that’s what we need, though, so both teams can get the situation, try and practice it and then do it again to get it right.” The incident won't do Jones any favors with the 24-year-old yet to be officially named as the starting quarterback. Although on the team’s unofficial depth chart Jones is listed ahead of Bailey Zappe. This isn't the only controversial incident that has taken place during the Packers-Patriots joint practice session.
