Now that the Tiger-Cats 2021 journey is complete, I thought I could go off on a bit of a tangent about our former HC . . .
Back in March of this year, as the NFL Draft hype was heating up, and everyone was touting Trevor Lawrence (Clemson) as the consensus, can't miss #1 overall pick, our old friend June Jones, was expressing a different opinion . . . June acknowledged that very few NFL scouts would agree with his opinion, but he was convinced that Mac Jones (Alabama) was the best QB of the entire draft class.
Trevor Lawrence was selected #1 overall, and then 3 other QB's were selected before Mac Jones was selected by the NE Patriots at #15 overall. We probably need to give Trevor Lawrence a pass for having to survive the Urban Meyer trainwreck in his rookie season, but to this point, Mac Jones is the best QB of this class, and it is not even close !!! June Jones, the QB Whisperer knows of what he speaks !!
Final comment about Mr. Jones . . . when he was in Hamilton, I seem to recall that Tua Tagovailoa was on Hamilton's Neg List. June Jones had many complimentary things to say about Tua at that time. Of course, Tua grew up in Hawaii so June had a previous relationship with him, before he ended up at Alabama. I hope that Tua is not on Hamilton's Neg List anymore, because I don't think he will see the inside of a CFL locker room anytime soon.
But June Jones knows a good QB when he sees one.
