The major thing I could learn from people close to the team in the aftermath was that there was a spark.
Everyone I spoke with agreed that there was an energy, urgency, and rhythm to the way the offense played Thursday
And there were even moments Sunday against the Chargers when the offense looked excellent in ways it didn't under Mac Jones.
Jones' 2023 is effectively over, according to reasoning. Because of how he practiced,
the coaches were able to sell Zappe to the other players in the locker room more readily
Jones' in-game gaffes became more frequent in practice, to the point where defensive teammates would call them out.
Things changed, albeit subtly, last week when Jones was demoted and assigned to the scout team (as Justin Herbert) in the days coming up to the Chargers game.
Zappe wasn't particularly impressive. Indeed, one coach described his performance as "decent."
