This is not the brand of Patriots football we’ve grown accustomed to seeing in Belichick’s 15 years as coach.

As always, a must-watch every week. All positive plays though…what I wouldn’t give for a good old fashioned BB destruction of the OL.

He included one of my Three GIF plays, the big defensive stop on 3rd-and-1.

That’s the way it is every year. You kind of find out what your team is good at, maybe what they are not good at, and work toward the things they can execute and do well and stay away from the things that for whatever reason tend to be not as productive for you.

Must-watch as always!

BB takes a look at Ryan Allen’s first quarter punt, or as I called it at the time, “the best Patriots play of the last three quarters”. Then the McCourty interception which felt like the moment the season actually started.

He also breaks down the pass coverage on one of Hightower’s sacks — something I was really impressed with after reviewing the All-22 tape.

“It means a lot, what it really means is that I have coached a lot of good football players. Those are the guys that win the game, players win games in this league. And I’ve been fortunate to have the opportunity to coach a lot of good players. And so that’s really about them winning the games.”

[W]e had more fundamental and technique breakdowns than we did just bad – an assortment of mental errors. That was true defensively as well. I don’t think it was a game where there was a lot of missed assignments. It was more, I would say, a lack of execution of good fundamentals.

Great long read on BB from Jeff Howe looking back at his long road to being the greatest coach of all time.
