The Patriots had a terrible day practice on Monday.
According to various reports, the offense looked broken and was getting manhandled by the defense throughout the day.
Team veteran David Andrews answered questions about the team’s terrible offensive performance on Monday.
Patriots defense is running roughshod over the offense. Highlights for that side were “sacks” by Christian Barmore and Matt Judon during a third-down period.
Offense looks broken. Can’t protect. Losing 1-on-1s. Blitzes getting through. No run game. Miscommunication on routes.

Patriots No. 1 offense today has been distressingly bad. Run stuffs. Aborted plays. Would-be sacks. Distress lobs into traffic just to get ball out. Beginning to feel it’s less the new offense and more the post-Scar cycle of OL coaches. They are perpetually overwhelmed.

Mac Jones took the first 20 reps in 11-on-11 drills, staying in even after the Patriots rotated out their O-line regulars. And it's been ugly.
A quarter of those reps resulted in a sack (4) or a scramble (1), and all six completions were within a few yards of the LOS.
