There are several roster ties between the New England Patriots and Chicago Bears, but none is as noteworthy as N’Keal Harry’s. A first-round selection by the Patriots in the 2019 NFL Draft, Harry spent three seasons in New England but failed to meet expectations. “I’m trying not to get too caught up in it being the Patriots and it being my former team,” Harry recently told the Pioneer Press. “I’m excited to see my guy. I’m worried about right now, going forward and helping this team win.”Harry’s tenure with the Bears was off to a disappointing start.1 month ago Pats Pulpit

So, let us do just that and expand the discourse a bit to see how the Patriots offense as a whole has changed with Zappe compared to Jones. The question now becomes what this and the rest means in the grand scheme of things and regarding the Mac Jones-Bailey Zappe discourse. For starters, the Patriots offense with Bailey Zappe under center has been a more conservative one. The secret moving forward might just be finding a middle ground between the first three weeks of the season and the Zappe era.1 month ago Pats Pulpit
