Sherman said it is a misconception that a complicated defense means its a better scheme. He feels that players have “nothing to fall back on” when things aren’t going well and tend to get lost.

Bill Belichick standing in front of a crowd: When the St. Louis Rams fired Steve Spagnuolo, Josh McDaniels was informed he would not be retained as offensive coordinator. Bill Belichick hired McDaniels as an assistant ahead of the club's 2011 playoff run. Then, he took over as offensive coordinator when O'Brien left for Penn State.  In a similar vein, Belichick could find a place for O'Brien if he wanted to add him back to the staff. O'Brien was an offensive assistant for New England in 2007, a receivers coach in 2008, and then the quarterbacks coach from 2009-10 before taking over as offensive coordinator.

It will be difficult for Nolan to change his scheme four weeks into the season, but he may have to simplify things like Sherman said. That would be a good place to start.
