Since the Patriots began its training camp the 11 on 11 section of practice has been staunchly one-sided. There has been a flurry of reports and updates discussing the team’s struggles offensively, particularly in pass protection.

Team insider for NBC Sports Boston Tom Curran went as far as to say the offense has looked “distressingly bad” highlighting poor blocking and lob passes into coverage.

But quarterback Mac Jones doesn’t quite see it the same way and after a better day on the practice field, Jones said that the team is very close to figuring things out.

“Yeah I think every day you watch the film, and it’s that 2 percent like I was talking about,” Jones said according to CBS News. “We’re close and we just gotta get there and buy in and trust it and trust what we’re supposed to do and just do our job.”

New England went through heavy offensive changes since last season, particularly on the coaching staff. Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels accepted the head coaching job with the Las Vegas Raiders and legendary offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia retired.

Former defensive coordinator Matt Patricia and former special teams coach Joe Judge have aided in the offensive duties with Jones throughout training camp too much criticism and questioning.

Through the difficulties so far, Jones vows that he will figure things out in the new offense.

“Yeah, I mean, I’m gonna figure it out,” Jones said. “I always have and I always will. And at the end of the day, you’re gonna have your ups and downs with anything new, but I’ve learned a lot of different systems and guys around me have too. We know what football looks like. We know what a good play looks like and the schematics behind it. It’s not just the result; it’s the process of how looks.”
