Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports
The New England Patriots are gonna go defense coordinator-less this upcoming season after their former D.C. Matt Patricia left to be the Detroit Lions head coach...

who left to become the head coach of the Detroit Lions last month. The Patriots will turn over primary defensive play-calling duties to linebackers coach Brian Flores, a source said,” Robinson reported. “The move mirrors New England’s grooming process of Patricia, who was given defensive play-calling duties for the Patriots following the 2010 departure of Pees, New England’s former defensive coordinator. Patricia’s title was not officially promoted to defensive coordinator until 2012.”
Toal Bill Belichick move here. I mean, I'm sure he's calling the plays anyway, right?

He does this sometimes to take the heat off new coordinators in their first year or so. The Patriots once went a season without a named offensive or defensive coordinator.

Sorry Angola inmates. U can stop pooling your concession credit and protesting the ouster of your warden in favor of Patricia to defend you from escaping. He is going to Detroit.

So they have a coordinator, but they’re just paying him as a linebackers coach.

The Pat's defense is the reason they're not Champs. Bill better find him some DL that can stop the better teams and someone to rush the passer since they showed in 2017 they have neither.

Maybe so, but if the pass to Brady was two feet to his left, we are talking about another new England championship.
