Worth noting the blown assignment on the Henry screen is partially good coaching, though. Cian's article on Arthur Smith's play calling goes in to it:

You realize that this type of thing happens all of the time in games.  The key is to take advantage of it and makes teams when they are exactly where you want them.  The Titans did but it was due to proper execution, not some revolutionary concept this coaching staff came up with that prior ones haven’t.

Sure, it's a game of chess. But coaching is not what led their DB to take a freaking horrible angle and take himself out of the play. It should have only been a 30-40 yard gain. 

 

And good coaching had nothing to do with any of Bakers 3 INTs. One was a superb play by Ryan. The other two were just terrible freaking throws. Those TOs, mostly mistakes by a 2nd year QB, is what blew that game open. Not the game plan. 

 

Not trying to take away from the win, but it was a nail biter for 3 quarters until Baker threw away the game on 3 straight drives. 

 

Samething happened when we got embarrassed by Pitt on Tbursday night two years ago. Great, tight game until Mariota turned it over 2 or 3 times late in that game.

I think what seperates Vrabel from the rest of the Belichick disciples is he played in the NFL & isnt that far removed from playing in the NFL...So not only does he seem to be a great leader of men, he can also relate to them in that way. And he is young enough to go out there and still do some hitting & Guys respect that. And thats why I think Vrabel will succeed where many Belichick disciples didn't.

Exactly this ^^^. Only won by 30 because of Cleveland self destructing. In all reality we probably should have only won the game by 7-10 points 

Isn’t that how you usually win by 30 in the NFL?

Vrabel is a pay attention to details. Details and fundamentals. He is a hard nosed type of coach but the players love him and play hard for him. The video of the locker room post game of the browns shows that. He teaches about each player learning to be a better player. Best coach we have had in a very long time. 

He's better at clock management than other Patriot disciples.  I'm sure that what happened with the Lions wouldn't have happened under his watch.  And I enjoy that he work with the defensive lineman on techniques, it just seems refreshing that he can actually give them pointers on how to improve..

Think of it this way though-if that DB had the attention to detail coaching provided by the coach on the other side of the field that day, maybe he doesn't take that bad angle.  Same goes for at least two of the int's for Baker.

 

Those are perfect examples of things that good attention to detail coaches can remedy.

He's been better than I expected. Thought he'd be a real hothead when he was hired. Wasn't sure how he would manage personalities. I still say its a little early, but he's looking like a good hire so far.

What you said still faults the player and doesn't make our coaching staff look any better. I dont get the point of saying "if their player paid attention to detail". He took a bad angle. Not on their coaches or ours. Angles are damn there common sense in football. For good players. Regardless of coaching.
