The New England Patriots have officially listed their play-caller for the upcoming 2022 NFL season. Many thought that head coach Bill Belichick would take this position now that Josh McDaniels is out. Joe Judge and Matt Patricia did the job during practice.
Dov Kleiman from NFL Network reported that Patricia will call plays in the upcoming season. Yes, it’s finally official. This will be a new challenge for Patricia because he spent most of his season on the defensive side of the ball. Patricia is more than confident about his new role with the team.
“One of the things I love about coaching is teaching,” he said. “I love teaching the game. I really do. And I think that when you teach and you become a coach, especially here — coach (Belichick) does a great job of this: This is something I learned my first day in the door — you learn about all facets of the game. You learn about offense and defense and positions and technique and fundamentals. You put yourself in a situation where really you’re comfortable coaching anybody on the field at any time. Whatever side of the ball it is. And that’s different here. That’s not like that everywhere.”
Patriots play-caller has great bond with players
Head coach Belichick will work with new assistants this year. He wasn’t into titles, but the team had to make a decision. Patricia is an excellent coach and he will sure help the team win games in 2022. Patriots players are excited about the new coaching staff.
“I think obviously Coach Belichick’s done a great job kind of explaining exactly what we want to do as an offense, and Matty P has seen so many different defenses along with Coach Belichick, so it’s like they combine their knowledge of how to attack the defense,” Jones said of Patricia.
The Patriots quarterback will do his job regardless of who is calling plays. He promised to deliver great performance and improved a lot in the offseason. Patriots coaches noticed great improvement in Jones’ performance and that’s the only thing that matters right now.
