Bill Belichick, Patriots fly to Miami early — or dangerous signal?

Since Tom Brady left the New England Patriots following the 2019 season, the franchise has struggled to regain its footing. 

The Pats went 7-9 in 2020 and missed the playoffs, adopted by a 10-7 file final season, the place they misplaced to the Buffalo Bills within the AFC wild-card spherical by 30 factors. 

On the debut episode of “The Carton Show,” FS1’s Craig Carton mentioned why the Patriots’ demise is “on our doorstep” and why Bill Belichick must be panicking. 

“Even in the good years, in their last nine years going to Miami, the Patriots are only 2-7,” Carton mentioned. “The Dolphins kind of own them in South Florida. Bill Belichick decided to get on a plane [Tuesday] to get acclimated to the heat and humidity. To me, this is a panic move. This is very anti-Belichick-like.

“Belichick, who has by no means wavered on something in his teaching and preparation for video games, is now taking an enormous change by flying right down to Miami 5 days earlier than the sport.”

The Patriots also have a new offensive plan following former offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels’ departure to become head coach of the Raiders. They’ll split offensive playcalling duties between three coaches — Matt Patricia, the offensive line coach, Joe Judge, the quarterbacks coach, and Bill Belichick, the defensive-minded head coach. 

This comes after reports of second-year quarterback Mac Jones struggling more in this season’s training camp than he did during his rookie season.
