The New England Patriots will make one major change and former linebacker Tedy Bruschi is super excited about it.
The Patriots Hall of Famer and ESPN NFL analyst talked to WBZ-TV’s Dan Roche on Monday. One of the topics included the Patriots and their upcoming season. Bruschi talked about the Patriots’ predicted switch from an offensive- to defensive-dominated team. This is definitely the most exciting thing about the team and their future plans. Bruschi said that Tom Brady’s contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Patriots’ 2020 NFL Draft picks indicate a return to the time when Belichick’s defense led to the team’s success.
“The shift with Tom being gone now is trying to make this a defense-dominated team,” Bruschi said. “They’ll tell you what they feel by what they do. So drafting those great young linebackers, I was excited to see that.”
The Patriots will make a new move and Tedy Bruschi is excited
The New England Patriots traded up to select Josh Uche in the second round. Bruschi said he is one of the young players who are expected to make a change in 2020. Uche will have a huge impact on the game, and Bruschi can’t wait to see him play.
“I can’t wait to watch Uche play, he’s a great young player,” the former Patriots linebacker said. “Defense is going to have the lead the way and I think Bill knows that. I’m excited to watch them.”
Bruschi has a “soft spot” for the defense. But, some say this was a strange point, because it is an awkward match to the advice he had for second-year quarterback Jarrett Stidham and his offensive cohorts. The former linebacker encouraged the offense to watch the ball and advised the defense to dominate.
2020 will be a really big season for the Patriots and they will have to overcome a few obstacles. Tom Brady will enter a new era with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the Patriots will have to trust Jarrett Stidham or Brian Hoyer.
The team added a lot of talented players in the 2020 NFL Draft, and Bill Belichick is satisfied with the result.
