The Patriots missed the playoffs for the second time in the post-Tom Brady era in 2022.
While the players deserve some of the responsibility for the team's lack of success, New England's problems can be traced primarily to the coaching staff.
With Josh McDaniels gone to Las Vegas, Bill Belichick took the audacious choice to replace his offensive coordinator with Matt Patricia,
a former defensive coordinator, and Joe Judge, a former special teams coordinator.
The results were predictable, and the team's lack of offensive coherence played a significant factor in quarterback Mac Jones' sophomore slump.
While supporters were hoping for a big-name addition, the organization's largest offseason move was bringing in former
offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien to assist manage the offense. Will the coaching change help the Patriots' prospects of making the playoffs?
It will not hurt, but it is unclear whether New England has enough firepower to compete with the other three AFC East teams.
