Oh, and you know this for sure how?
Unless you say you are on the coaching staff...go ahead and talk to this
He is a puppet DC. He is executing Pete's vision. Pete has said more than once it isn't easy for him to to not make defensive calls, and sometimes he still overrules the DC's playcalls. That is how I know this for sure I am not saying Bradley won't be a great head coach or that he is a bad coach here, I am saying that this is Pete's defense and Bradley is just an extension of his vision.
Personally, I think the defensive adjustments have been slow. We were slow to adjust when Green Bay changed up their offensive scheme in the 2nd half. We never adjusted to Kolb on that last drive of his when he clearly was only working underneath. It took a couple of weeks for us to work out some 3rd and long coverage problems that I suspect will continue to pop up. The way we flummoxed Carolina was nice, but Newton is terrible at the short game, so I don't know what we can really take from that game that will apply to the Patriot game. And I put those things on Pete, not Bradley.
