Bailey Zappe Could Get First NFL Start Against Rogers and the Packers
In a tweet that was posted by ESPN'S Eric Shun, Victoria East Titan graduate, Bailey Zappe could get his first NFL start, according to a source. Here is what EricShunESPN tweeted
If this rumor is true, Zappe will get the start for the week four matchup against Aaron Rogers and the Green Bay Packers. Talk about being on the big stage! New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones might have suffered a high ankle sprain Sunday during the Patriots' 37-26 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. According to ESPN, more information will be known about Jones's condition later today! Currently, Zappe is the number 3 option behind veteran Brian Hoyer. We hope this rumor turns out to be true and if is, good luck on Sunday, Bailey Zappe!
ZAPPE LIGHTS UP THE STAT SHEET IN COLLEGE FOR WESTERN KENTUCKY:
Zappe transferred from Houston Baptist to Western Kentucky in 2021 and that is when things just took off. Just last year, Zappe broke two college football records. He is now the all-time FBS passing yards and touchdowns leader for a single season. Zappe's single-season record for passing yards is 5,997 yards! Zappe also broke the record for touchdown passes in a season recently set by LSU quarterback Joe Burrow during the Tigers' 2019 national championship season. Burrow had 60, and Zappe now has 62! Not bad for an East Titan
SEE THE MOMENT ZAPPE HEARD BELICHECK'S VOICE:
Back in May, his name was called during the 4th round as the 137th pick. Now thanks to a video posted on social media by Adhaam M on Facebook we get to see the reaction of Bailey and friends and family. Imagine getting a call from one of the most successful coaches in the NFL as an NFL draft hopeful. According to NFL.COM, Zappe has a great football IQ, which will help the Patriots' QB room and give him a chance to develop into a reliable professional backup. I have watched this video multiple times and I love everything about it.
