I'd give the game ball to MikeMac the Predator but he already stole it!

the best thing to do is zone blitz IMO against tom brady with a 3rd and long

when he gets time....he makes plays.....thats why brady is good.....but notice what happens when he gets pressured....he throws picks and has bad passes

when you blitz him and set up a zone for the crossing route and deep passes it takes away his quick reads and makes him hold the ball longer for the rush to get to him......even if he completes a pass, its still underneath and short for the first down

on 3rd and 5 i have no problem with rushing 3 because blitzing a LB would open up the middle of the field for the infamous brady to welker crossing route

i noticed we didnt play a 3-4......we played a 3-3 nickel package with 5 DBs and 3 downlinemen and LBs
Yep. That 3-3-5 was for a few reasons I think.
1. Even though we are beat up in the secondary we had more speed and talent available there than the LBs.
2. It was easier to disguise coverage and confuse the Pats with the 5 DBs instead of an extra LB.

It was exciting to watch. I know you didn't like the three man rush, but for the most part it was effective combined with the plays with extra rushers. I'd love to buy Greg Williams a beer, and Payton for giving up some cash to make sure he got him.
