New England Patriots: The Defense is in Good Hands With Bill Belichick
The defending Super Bowl Champions now will have Bill Belichick as a head coach and defensive coordinator. The New England Patriots lost Brian Flores as he moved on to become the new head coach of the Miami Dolphins. Belichick reached out to one of his friends in Greg Schiano. Schiano was brought on and shortly after that, he changed his mind. Schiano stated that he wanted to be closer to his family. This now at the moment leaves Belichick calling defensive plays for the first time since 2011.
This will not be much of a challenge for Belichick. He has coached the defensive lineman through the game. He has also told former defensive coordinators, Matt Patricia and Brian Flores when to blitz. All of the personnel that Belichick would consider bring in all have a job. He only has one on the staff that could possibly be ready and that’s Bret Bielema. Bielema is a former coach for the University of Arkansas. Steve Belichick the coaches’ son doesn’t have enough play calling experience. The other one is Jerod Mayo who is just a first-year coach so he needs more experience.
We all know that Belichick is a smart guy. What he figures is he will let those three guys gain more experience. So that he feels he is not rushing them into the position. There might be an off the wall chance that Patricia could be able to come back. That will only happen if he fails as the Detroit Lions head coach. He beat Belichick and the New England Patriots last year.
It has been a while
The last time this happened in the 2010-11 season the Patriots were fine. The team went 27-5 and only averaged 20 points per game. That was above average defense. Of course, they made only one Super Bowl in which they lost to the New York Giants. The Patriots will be fine with Bill Belichick calling and letting his assistants gain more experience. Patriots’ fans do not need to worry!
