    If you don't know, Nick Caserio is the Patriots' WR coach. In other words, he gets to coach Moss, Welker, Stallworth, et al.

    So--anybody know what that actually means on a day-to-day basis? :)

    Not sure, but I'm nominating him for most improved coach from last season to this. He's really done one helluva job. :rolleyes:

    He hangs around with Dante Scarnecchia and Pepper Johnson, drinking huge amounts of coffee while watching the soaps in the clubhouse.

    Heh.

    But, seriously, though: what does a WR coach spend his time doing, especially with a WR crew this good?

    A position coach is responsible for developing talent at a given position. Just because Moss is one of the best WRs in the league doesn't mean that he has nothing to learn.

    As far as the WR coach is concerned, I would say these are some of his responsibilities:

    • Get the WR specific part of the game plan to the WRs
    • Tell each WR what he can do to get better
    • Keep the WRs from developing tendencies that opponents could pick up on film
    • Go over film with WRs, explaining why a certain decision was or wasn't correct
    • WR drills
    • etc, etc

    Edit: I understand this is a good WR crew, but they would be nothing without the direction of a decent coaching staff (WR, OC, HC, all of it)

    I'm guessing there are still flaws in their games. Tom Brady still refers to his coach back in San Mateo who he gets help with on his fundamentals.

    I played WR in college basically day to day you work on

    WR splits (this means how you line up each play and the distance between you and the hash marks, the sidelines and other WRs) this varies greatly on run vs pass vs 2 wide sets, etc.

    Release drills, getting off the ball and avoiding the jam.

    Blocking Drills!! We did this basically every day, hated these

    Hands Drills

    Route running, adjusting routes based on def, down and distance etc.

    "Chad, please watch Randy, Wes, Donte & Jabar and do whatever they do. Troy Brown is over with the defensive backs if you need any instruction. I'll be in the cra p p er if anybody needs me!"

    In addition to what was said, he probably spends a lot of time watching film to determine the tendencies of opposing teams safeties & corners, figuring out what kind of plays they are likely to fall for.

    Did a heck of a job getting A. Smith's number.

    You think a wide reciever coach gameplans?

    I mean, I don't know, but I would guess McDaniel handles that, with input from the other coaches, I am sure.

    I would guess Cesario's job is too make sur ethe WR are properly conditioned and familiar with their jobs in the OC's gameplan.

    I doubt he does the entire game plan, but if he says "Hey Josh, I think this noob safety of theirs will fall for play action every time, come take a look," McDaniels would probably take a look. WR coach probably has some input on what he thinks the strengths and weaknesses of a secondary are considering he probably spends a lot of time analyzing them.
