He hit on Mac Jones at least, so that can make up for the last few years of fairly poor drafting.
Win or lose though, I consistently come away impressed with Bill's gameplans, and how he effects the game as a coach.
The thing that has always amazed me about Billicheck is his ability to adapt. Many coaches, even some of the greatest of all time define their philosophy earlier in their career and refuse to adapt to the situation. They eventually saunter on for years until they're relics of a time gone by. Or they'll clumsily pigeon hole players into their systems that have no business playing in said system.
Bilicheck is defined by his lack of a set philosophy. No two Patriots teams look alike. He won't hesitate to switch things even from a week to week basis. I've never seen a coach that is as willing to switch things up as he is. He definitely isn't the best drafter in the world but his ability to coach is second to none.
