Charlie Weis spoke in the name of every New England Patriots fan out there. He discussed the current situation in Foxboro and posed one great question. A lot of NFL fans would ask the same thing. New England has been giving us minor panic attacks this offseason. Head coach Bill Belichick and his team have been making the hottest headlines in the past few weeks.
Weiss was an offensive coordinator with the Patriots in the team’s first three Super Bowl runs. He talked about the Patriots offense on Sirius XM NFL Radio’s “Opening Drive” program, and his question was rather tricky.
“My biggest question is, ‘Who is the guy to take the top off the defense?,’” Weis said.
Charlie Weis asked the most important question about the Patriots
If by any chance you don’t know, “taking the top of the defense” is linked to the pass catcher who will stretch the field vertically for an offense. In other words, Weis likes to know more about the weapons at wide receiver.
New England will probably rely on Julian Edelman, N’Keal Harry and Mohamed Sanu. The Patriots traded a second-round pick to get him last season. The team also signed Marquise Lee and Damiere Byrd this offseason. They may also turn to undrafted receiver Jakobi Meyers. He will be in his second campaign with the team.
Coach Belichick has great words for his group of receivers. He drafted a safety, three linebackers, two tight ends, a kicker and three interior linemen. The Patriots signed at least three wide receivers in undrafted free agency, but Belichick will probably go with his current group.
The Patriots head coach believes that his young players will get better in Year 2. He touted Sanu and Harry, while expressing his confidence in Edelman. His team has a bunch of great players, and Belichick believes that his group is really competitive. There are so many ways to construct team, and the draft is one of these ways. However, Belichick didn’t rely much on this year’s draft to cover his receiving unit. Did he make a good decision? Will he change his mind in the next few months?
