From the horses mouth....
Belichick offers glimpse into his role
"Call [O'Brien] whatever you want to call him, it doesnâÂÂt matter. Whoever is calling plays, if the head coach is involved with the play-calling or the organization of the play-calling, then IâÂÂm going to talk to the person that calls the plays. If IâÂÂm not, then he calls them and you know, thereâÂÂs no input from the head coach, thatâÂÂs alright, too. IâÂÂm not saying it has to be one way or the other, but however youâÂÂre structured to set it up, thatâÂÂs how it's set up. But the way itâÂÂs structured here is, IâÂÂll take responsibility for all the plays that are called. I have the final say on it. If I donâÂÂt want to run the play, then I can call it off âÂÂ thatâÂÂs my right as a head coach."
What's he supposed to say? Of course he's going to say that as any head coach would. The buck stops with him.
But, the real truth is, BB is not engaged with what is going on when McDaniels is calling plays into Brady to choose from.
He doesn't even have his headset on for chrissakes!
Then, HE'S SATISFIED WITH THE PLAY CALLING OR HE WOULD MAKE CHANGES!
You can't go on pretending there is this major problem of throwing 40 times a game and that BB just never says anything about it junior.
Either BB or you is a complete idiot. I'm betting it's you.
