Just because someone can do something at an extremely high level, doesn't mean they would be able to understand everything that went into being so good and be able to be an effective teacher. After all, people that good usually have a lot of things come natural for them to begin with. That being said, just because someone was never able to do something at a high level, doesn't mean they can't completely understand the intricacies and mechanics that go into it, and then be able to pass that knowledge on effectively.
Tom Martinez and Bill O'Brien are very decorated and praised coaches. Brady himself gives a lot of credit to both of them when it comes to his mechanics and quarterbacking skills. Brady still goes out to be coached and maintain/perfect his mechanics with Martinez. Bill Belichick also plays a role in it, and he never threw a football at a professional level either.
So while this is a football message board and you can complain or praise whatever you want, your reaction to this and the reasoning behind it combined with your vitriol comes off as extremely ignorant. I'm not saying Bratkowski is an all world coach, but I fail to see any logical reason to be so down on the guy. Sure, he's never been a QB or coached the position, but Smith had never been a Head Coach before either. Heck, Bill Belichick's first Head Coaching job went pretty bad as well.
lmao wow ok, whatever you say boss. I can have my opinion and I'm sticking with it. If you guys are happy with Bratkowski as the future OC then good for you all!
