As I believe a number of coaches, including our new head coach have said, you got to be yourself. Why? Cus you can only be the best you, you can't be the best someone else....
Also so many teams have tried to copy the Patriots, including former Patriots... and all have completely failed (so far), the only one with success has been the Texans head coach (and you might be able to argue the Titans head coach, but that's still a clear work in progress especially since we just stole their top offensive coach).
We're not using the Patriots scheme, we're using the Walsh, Shanahan (father), Kubiak, Shanahan (son), LaFleaur scheme.
Or maybe I'm just overloaded with reading comparisons to the Patriots especially with the McDaniels rumors.
