Pacquiao vs Bradley Free: Roach says “We know how to handle Bradley”

Roach said to the Manila Bulletin “Manny is in a very good place. We have a big game plan and we know how to handle this guy.”
Why on earth is Roach always talking about “we”? He’s not the one that’s going in the ring to get slugged in the head by Bradley, so why is he always saying “We”? I never feel good about people that say “We” when I’m the one doing the work. It just makes me mistrustful of them. Anyway, I don’t get Roach at all. The guy always talks about his grand vision for Pacquiao. He’s always got these schemes that sounds if he’s a genius but then Pacquiao goes out there and looks as crude as a beginning novice in the ring, getting by one speed and power alone, but looking primitive. It just makes me wonder what are these so called plans that Roach is always dreaming up but I’m never seeing in action.
It just looks to me like Roach waves a red handkerchief in front of Pacquiao’s before the fight like he’s a little bull and then he sics him on his opponent. I don’t see any real strategy in Pacquiao’s fights. I just see him going straight at his opponents, trying to overwhelm them with speed and power. Sometimes it works out well for Pacquiao and other times he fails miserably, yet still wins the fight somehow. But I think Roach sounds pretentious with when he talks about having an unbeatable game plan to beat an opponent like Bradley, because I don’t see any game plan with Pacquiao’s fights other than Roach letting him loose on them.
