I’m sorry, I was told nepotism had ruined this team. Please keep up or edit your post to reflect how Bill doesn’t have time to work with the offense because he’s busy compensating for the nepotism on the other side of the ball.The one thing you can say about Bill is he can still rock on defense. This team is 5th in defense by DVOA, 7th in points allowed, and second in the league in TO forced behind Philly with 17. They have had trouble with mobile QBs but every team does. Fields and Lamar are deadly running the ball. This team gets after the quarterback, they are second in the league in sacks, they did have 9 against Indy but they have been after the passer all year. They are doing this with a pretty mediocre set of LBs for a Pats team. It's debatable that Judon is a LB in this scheme. They are also clearly better when Dugger is on the field.
They are playing a lot of good QBs in the second half. Hopefully, they maintain this level of play.
