Re: Bears GM Phil Emery and Coaching Systems
Belichick is brilliant. I expect more teams to try to adapt his methods in order to find similar success. Staying in a rigid system and forcing your players to fit that system seems detrimental to their individual strengths. Taking those same players and adapting systems to maximize the potential of their strengths is very smart and a seemingly obvious key to long term success.
Could this be why they inserted Matt Cassel when Brady went down and kept on rolling for an 11 win season? Cassel is obviously not the same caliber of Tom Brady, but the team itself did not skip a beat.
Great article, man. Thanks for posting it.
