Patriots seek offensive coordinator

We are active on the side of New England. The Patriots announced Thursday that they will be interviewing for their position as offensive coordinator.

A sweet way of saying that Matt Patricia and Joe Judge will no longer be in charge of the attack in the future, but, obviously, without firing them. It was Patricia who was in charge of play calls this year. The Patriots finished at the bottom of the rankings in many statistical categories, including efficiency in the red zone (32nd), efficiency on 3rd attempt (27th), number of first downs (28th). They scored just 31 touchdowns, down from 48 last season.

Patricia never officially held the title of offensive coordinator, which was one of the originalities of the situation in New England, but it is also what makes it possible not to officially dismiss him from the position and reassign him to another position. in the staff.

Among the candidates would be Bill O’Brien, a former member of the house.

On defense, things are much better, as the Patriots have announced that they have begun to negotiate a contract extension with Jerod Mayo, their linebacking coach, who is starting to be coveted by other teams for a more prestigious position. The Browns approached him for their defensive coordinator job and Carolina even interviewed him for the head coach job. Mayo could therefore take advantage of this to obtain a nice promotion.

Owner calls quarterback ‘missing piece’ for Jets

Zach Wilson, Mike White, Joe Flacco… the quarterbacks have chained themselves this season in the AFC franchise in New York, without giving satisfaction. And Zach Wilson’s credit seems to have dwindled. The words of franchise owner Woody Johnson should not reassure him.

“We have a lot of potential, it’s very frustrating,” Johnson told media on Thursday.

“He had a difficult year, for sure, but I remain confident,” he said of Zach Wilson, before being much less optimistic for his future by declaring himself “absolutely open” to the arrival of a star quarterback. “That’s the missing piece,” Johnson concluded.
