Someone put the spice in the vanilla offense
The play that made my weekend was the flea flicker. It was not the only play call that I thought was great, but it was the most non-vanilla call of the game.
I have been really dissapointed in the offensive playcalling to date. However, I thought this game was much better. In addition to that play, the Pats also called a number of successful screen plays to the RB where Brady passed it over the heads of the pursuing linemen/Lbs (that is opposed to the obvious WR screen quick-pass type that, while successfull, is kind of expected at this point).
Brady's accuracy was also a difference maker though. Not only did he connect on the deep throws, but he hit receivers IN STRIDE (Faulk play comes to mind), which has been a real problem in the past few games.
They also worked the play action far better... although they ran the ball well so that may be why I noticed it this week.
Overall, I thought the plays they called were less predictable than the past few games.
