In response to NoMorePensionLooting's comment:
May I ask this...
If Romeo Crennel were here right now would our current D be playing better? worse? same? Would our many draft picks on D be playing better? worse? same? Do we dare ask are we picking D players that aren't working out or are we failing to coachem up right?
If Weis were here would we be running more? less? same? Would Blount be used like he should be?
If JM was Weis in 03...04...would we ever have heard of clock killen' Cory Dillion? JM tried to get rid of Moreno....a bust....a guy now who know most in the league would kill for.
Ive been saying this for years, and it isn't a knock on BB as I am certain he doesn't coach the team by himself. Losing trusted and experienced coordinators has an impact on player development. It has an impact on guys getting coached up on an individual basis during the actual game. On a players ability to perform in the clutch, which imo has been our only problem for years now.
I happen to like Mcd, but I don't know what Matt Patricia actually does here. I see BB coaching the defense every game. I don't think Obrien did anything innovative with the offense, he just sat back and relied on the greatness of Tom Brady, and I blame BB for that too.
What is more ridiculous, saying that coaching( which is directly responsible for player development) has suffered because guys who coached with BB for 10 plus years are gone, or that BB suddenly forgot how to recognize talented players after 30 years of managing them?
We were probably the most talented team in the NFL before the injury bug decimated us. Is that statement untrue? We have been one of the most talented teams in the league top to bottom for the last 13 years. Either some of us are forgetting, or have another agenda to push.
