Cowboys player's awful new Mac Jones nickname amid struggles

The NFL is cruel. Fast-changing player opinions are common. Recent events have worsened for New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones. 

After a poor performance against the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday, one opponent called the quarterback "Cooper Rush Deluxe.

" Jones' failures have sparked concerns about his Patriots future. Jones completed 12 of 21 throws for 150 yards and three fumbles, two of which led to Dallas touchdowns. 

This poor performance had him benched in a 38-3 loss. Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated explained the derogatory term on 98.5 The Sports Hub's "Zolak & Bertrand.

" Breer said, "I talked to one of the Cowboys guys after, and I asked him his opinion on Mac, and he called him 'Cooper Rush Deluxe.'"

Compare Jones to Cooper Rush, a career backup with minimal game time, and the young quarterback may not be pleased. 

Rush went 4-1 as a Cowboys fill-in starter last season, but Jones' recent performance casts question on his Patriots leadership. 

The Cowboys player who drew the connection believed Jones could succeed if the Patriots had a good rushing game and offensive line like the 2016 and 2017 Cowboys.
