2021 will really be a fork in the road kinda year for the team:

K1 will either progress, or he wont.

if he progresses, the team makes the playoffs, everyone keeps their jobs and we all feel good (more or less) on the direction of the team

if K1 doesnt: he is a high end Jake Plummer. Entertaining, good enough to win 7,8 or 9 games with a really good roster but not consistent enough to go far in the playoffs. GM and coach go -- with the new HC given the charge to figure K1 out. all at a time when an extension is looming --

fun times!

All this after year three...

Imagine if the Broncos had decided that year three was the litmus test for John Elway's career.

"I know from our team, there are times when we don’t know exactly what went wrong until we sort out the play,” Belichick said on WEEI. “So it’s impossible someone else could have known. Sometimes what it looks like is not what it is.”

I don't know how you get to that conclusion, or for that matter that you are able to predict that he is talking about the vast minority of plays, but okay, I guess we just read it differently.
I read it as you do, Gandhi, he’s essentially saying “I think these guys are full of sheesh.”

"There are times" suggests a infrequently. If it was frequent he would say "often".
Lol at your mental gymnastics. He’s solely referring to when his guys can’t figure it out as an example to show how ridiculous it is to rely on those with zero insight.
