McDaniels role in focus
Those wondering who might be taking a leading role in offensive play-calling might have been tipped off by the attire worn by Patriots coaches on the sidelines tonight.
Quarterbacks coach Josh McDaniels is wearing blue while other offensive coaches are in white. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is also wearing blue. Last week, McDaniels and Belichick were both in gray, while the rest of the offensive coaches were in white.
That's a strong sign McDaniels is taking a leading role in the offensive play-calling.
On other side of the ball, defensive coordinator Eric Mangini is wearing red to distinguish himself from his fellow defensive coaches, who are in white shirts.
More to come.
