There is little doubt that the coaching woes the Patriots experienced in 2022 were the biggest problem the team encountered as they missed the playoffs for the second time in three years.
The dysfunction displayed by the Patriots this past season was unlike anything we have seen from the Patriots in decades. The problems were as clear as day. Week after week, the Patriots exposed themselves as an undisciplined, unorganized, and uninspiring bunch. At times, it even felt unhinged.
In last Thursday’s Boston Herald, Andrew Callahan and Karen Guregian outlined the shortcomings of the Patriots coaching staff with their story, “Inside the most dysfunctional season under Bill Belichick.” The eye-opening report peeled back the curtain and revealed what we could all see from the outside: a disastrous coaching staff driving a once-proud football team into the ground.
