Like this one:
Garrett has all of these concepts in the play book.
He also runs rub routes something NE has done for years.

I'm not saying Garrett will be another Landry. I think this team has a lot of players that are either not smart or don't take things as serious and Garrett wants them to. He needs to adapt his system to fit what he has on the field until he can get players that get it.
My fear is his trigger-man will be gone before he gets players on the field that know how to run his system.
Coaches don't adapt their system to the players, at least in the long term.
They aquire/release players to fit their system.
"It's little bit like the description of pornography from years back. It's hard to define it. But you know what it is at the end of it. It's hard to define it. I think you know who is more physical. Often times you see that in the fourth quarter. A lot of time the team on the other side feels it. We pride ourselves on being a physical football team. It's important to us. It's an important time of the year to lay that foundation." - Coach Garrett
