It was reported last week in Green Bay during the joint practices between the New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers, coach Bill Belichick lit into starting quarterback Mac Jones. Over the course of the offseason and training camp, the relationship between the head coach and the young quarterback has been heavily reported about. Back on Wednesday after the practice, Jones briefly spoke on the incident, but yesterday on WEEI's "Jones and Mego," the quarterback downplayed the incident entirely.

In a fun, kind-hearted way Jones was able to settle the noise regarding this altercation. He mentioned how it was a super detailed thing, and hopefully, this should quiet the scuttlebutt around this coaching moment from the future Hall of Fame coach. This response leads me to believe maybe the two's relationship is changing for the better.

Earlier in the day, Belichick appeared on WEEI's "The Greg Hill Show" and was asked about his perspective of the incident. Like Jones, Belichick did not make much of the coaching moment. Belichick went on to say, "There's things we need to correct and work out. And that is just coaching."

Ultimately, this is probably much of nothing, and it seems like the head coach and starting quarterback duo are doing just fine. As we approach the end of camp, it is clear that Jones will be the guy to take the snaps under center.

Throughout camp Jones has done a nice job adapting to the new offense from first-year offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien. In the same interview previously mentioned, Coach Belichick was on "The Greg Hill Show," where he spoke about how Jones and the whole team have made a lot of progress.

As the Patriots wrap up the preseason against the Tennessee Titans on Friday night, it will be interesting to see how Jones and the offense continue to improve ahead of the regular season debut vs. the Philadelphia Eagles.
