Sounds familiar.Josh Boyer took a lot of heat from Pats fans back when he was the defensive backs coach and the Pats secondary was trash (circa 2010-2011). He was the CB coach all the way through 2018. The Pats did a pretty good job developing CBs during that time, but on the flip side, they also had several early draft busts in the secondary. All this to say, Pats fans have no idea if he is a good coach either.
Nik Needham-UDFA starter.
I suppose we’ll all find out together because Boyer will have no where to hide this year. Flores is gone, Alexander is gone. It’s his show.
I get the feeling that Boyer is a very good X’s and O’s guy, a good strategist, but not a great playcaller on Sundays. That’s why things changed halfway through the year. Someone took over that responsibility (Flores or Alexander) and Boyer was still the DC but not pulling the trigger on game day.
