A big difference why I think Pioli is having success and McDaniels did not is that Pioli has molded his team on the field like New England better than McDaniels did. Pioli fit players where they could be part of a greater plan.
McDaniels’ approach to the Patriots’ Way was to wear a hoodie and wield power. It was his way and his way only. That was the beginning of the end of his plan. It caught up to him quickly, once again showing that the New England Way isn’t for everybody.
That second paragraph is comic gold. Props to Bill Williamson.
