While no offensive coordinator has been named, the belief is that former New York Giants head coach Joe Judge and former Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia will be involved on the offensive side of the ball. Before being named the Giants head coach, Judge was a special teams coach for the Patriots.
And Patricia has spent much of his career on the defensive side of the ball for the Patriots. Patricia has not worked on the offensive side of the ball since he was the Patriots’ assistant offensive line coach in 2005.
Judge was working closely with Mac Jones, the team’s prized franchise quarterback during the team’s minicamp. Outside of Judge’s special team role, he also served as the Patriots’ wide receivers coach in 2019.
If Judge is the Patriots play-caller, the players should be concerned, like Bedard believes they are. When he was the Giants’ head coach, the team made many questionable calls.
