The New England Patriots hired Matt Patricia for a few great reasons and he sure has the confidence of a winner. However, head coach Bill Belichick has big plans for Patricia and some believe he may face a big challenge early in the regular season. The Patriots lost Josh McDaniels and have yet to name an offensive coordinator. Oh, wait, they won’t have an OC in 2022. Joe Judge and Patricia will do the job in the upcoming season. Analysts have expressed some concerns about it.
Matt Patricia has enough confidence to win with the Patriots in 2022
Vince Wilfork heard all the comments about the Patriots offense and the way offensive coaches do the job. The Patriots didn’t have a great performance in the preseason and even lost the finale to McDaniels’ Las Vegas Raiders.
“No, not at all, because when I was a rookie, he was on the offensive side already,” Wilfork said on NBC Sports Boston’s The Gameplan. “He came on the defensive side after I got there. I’ve known Matty P as an offensive guy from day one, when I was there, when I was drafted.
“So I don’t think it’s by mistake and I think Matty’s going to do a great job because one thing I know with Bill (Belichick), is they have a lot of communication going on and everybody is always in the mix with everything. So Matty won’t be calling all the plays, it’s always a team effort, from the coaching staff to the players. I have full confidence in Matt, knowing what he’s doing on the offensive side of the ball, because he’s proven himself there with me when I was a rookie.”
Wilfork can see things work for the Patriots. He is confident about Patricia’s new role with the team. He is confident about the gameplan and knows that “it’s always a team effort.” Let’s see how this works for the team. It’s a challenging season for every member of the coaching staff and yes, players have to give their best and win more games.
