Reporting on a cheating scandal can sometimes be difficult, but from a journalistic perspective it is important that the truth comes out. It’s especially hard when a young rookie quarterback who is universally liked is simply trying to make a name for himself. But a cheater is a cheater.
And Mac Jones is a cheating bitch.
Lay month when the Carolina Panthers played the New England Patriots, Panthers edge rusher Haason Reddick called out Jones for his dirty tactics against Panthers defensive player Brian Burns by holding onto his ankle after a play ended. Later in the game, Burns had to be healed off the field with an injury to the same ankle. See what Reddick had to say on the matter below.
“Definitely thought it was a dirty play,” Reddick said. “I actually saw and witnessed the play while it was happening. At first it felt like he was trying trip or kick Burns. And the next thing you know I saw him tugging on Burns’ ankle. I thought it was completely dirty. Hopefully, it’s something the league addresses.”Credit: ESPN.com
As of today, Mac Jones has not been fined and will not be suspended for any games for his dirty play and overt cheating. This also means that Brian Hoyer will not be starting against the Buffalo Bills.
