FOXBORO — Dante Scarnecchia has not viewed any of the Patriots’ padded tactics in particular person.

But the offensive line guru has surely browse about all the complications the workforce, and his old O-line in unique, has experienced modifying to the new outside zone operating scheme, which is now getting paired with a bootleg, enjoy-motion passing sport.

His reaction?

Loosen up. It’s not worry time just nevertheless.

Scarnecchia thinks Monthly bill Belichick will know after joint practices with the Panthers and Raiders and the team’s three preseason online games if the plan is a deserving pursuit or if the Pats really should just continue to keep it in their again pocket.

“I would say this, in fairness to all people, I just believe this is the wrong time to evaluate it. The pads have arrive on, but they are not actively playing authentic football however,” Scarnecchia advised the Herald on Monday, in advance of the offense the moment-once again looked like a prepare wreck . “Whenever they enjoy the Giants, we’ll have a better idea wherever this point is. Even at that issue, it is not fully truthful to say they just can’t (do it).

“I consider there’s a (3-video game) approach at hand, in which we’ll have a far better notion in which this matter is likely. … What does not search fantastic in coaching camp early, has no bearing on something.”

Scarnecchia would know, possessing received five Super Bowls and coached the Patriots offensive line for 18 yrs under Belichick. But what if the offense however seems clunky at the close of the thirty day period?

“Bill’s hardly ever been 1 to say, ‘we’re likely to operate this no make a difference how it seems to be,’’’ he explained. “He won’t do that. I can recall him indicating many periods, ‘we’re likely on to anything else’.”
