Coaching's impact on poor secondary play

Do the names Brian Flores and Josh Boyer ring a bell?

Probably, if you're a diehard Patriots fan.

Those are the names of the Patriots safeties and cornerbacks coaches, respectively.

The guys on Sports Tonight wonder if those are two coaches who simply haven't gotten it done for New England and its secondary thus far.

Or is it Belichick the GM not being able to bring in or bring up enough talent? After all, aside from Asante Samuel, what member of the Patriots secondary has recently left and done well?

There seems to be no good answers for why the Pats secondary continues to struggle through the years . . . except that the players just aren't good enough.
