In response to coolade2's comment:
Bunker... You're speculating about who is running this offense . Putting it all on Brady shows your bias.
My point which seems obvious if you conclude coaches coach and players execute. Coaches call the plays because they see more from above than the QB. Brady makes the decision to throw where so he has some responsibility ... Maybe 40% or so and it seems clear he doesn't see the whole field like he used to. That said how much of that is trying to execute a play that is being defended well because the D is waiting for it...?
Bottom line , where this team goes from here is dependent on everyone evolving to break from many of the tendencies other teams are keying on. .. And start preying aggressively on the tendencies of opponents . Most of that is coaching better and gameplanning.
McDaniels and Patricia have to step up and not be afraid to change what isn't working. No excuse for 4 and out at end of Seattle game , or braincramp pass D in that game. These guys need some confidence to play with some swagger. It's an attitude adjustment to go with the strategic changes.
I really hope this team hasn't been beaten down by these bad beats as much as the fans.
Hmmm..... severely over throwing an open receiver? Underthrowing an open receiver? Intentional grounding IN THE FREAKIN' END ZONE??? Guess it's all good if the completion is made and the play results in a huge gain and/or score, right? If not, it's the coaches. Glad to know that coaching and game planning will resolve all player in game performance issues.
When players don't execute, it's due to one of the following:
- not the right "player" for the given situation(s)
- the player(s) didn't "get it" down right in practice
- the player(s) haven't got the skill sets to make the play work
- the player(s) can't be coached
But, with this being said, where's any credit for the opposing team/coaches? Think that there is a slight possiility that they can either see a trend and stop it? Or, make in game changes to eventually stop something from re-occuring? How about somethung as simple as an opposing player being in the right place at the right time (unfortunately for Pats fans)? Naw! Can NEVER give credit to the other guys, especially the coaching staff!
I got it all squared away now. Thanks!
if you read my post before you started on your sarcastic whiny rant you would see that I stated 40% of responsibility goes with Brady .
Giving credit to the other coaches is the same as being out coached. Thanks for making my point.
So your point is its all on the players or mostly on the players. you're right again ... Maybe if the coaches weren't so overmatched they would be in a position to play better and perhaps win a close game or two.
