He just does dumb things in big moments. Bubble screen on 1st with two defenders surrounding the RB five years behind the line, then audibles to the draw on second and a-really-long goal setting up a long third and goal, then a 50/50 ball (at best) on third when you can take the three and then hope for a stop and then go for another three.

He really seems like kind of a dipshit on the field at times.

Mac has made some good plays but a few of these throws go in the "he's not the guy" category.

As a big Mac guy I hate to say it, but some are just too brutal.

2 things...

Mac needs to learn to throw the ball away -- the Jonnu check down to Harris was a dead play. Just give it up and play another down.
Second, no recognition of the blitzer on his backside. Something had to be open there. Granted, didn't seem like anyone alerted him.
Yes, Ravens were bringing somebody on an obvious passing down.

The most depressing thing about Mac’s stupid decisions is that we know he’s not the most physically gifted guy and his football smarts are supposed to be his best asset. I mean you just can’t throw that.

Trent Brown didn’t get a paw on the right DE, who was right on Mac Jones when he threw the ball up for grabs

Mac never saw him, but Alghior had a step along the goal line on the INT

Ok the defense has really done their job the last 3 Ravens' possessions.

4 plays, 5 yards, FG (after the first Mac INT)
INT
5 plays, 28 yards, punt (after the second Mac INT)
