But that was on the potential to be a coach. I agree coaches have let him get out of control.
Yeah, his greatest strength is also his greatest weakness unfortunately... The bolded is the main thing that belichick & the pats exposed him on early on in his battles with them in the playoffs.. They covered up everything medium and deep in essence to make him methodically move the ball down field...they knew he'd eventually get frustrated and try to force something somewhere he probably shouldn't.
