    Here we go folks........A Big game against another:

    "We do,what we do",team and coach.BB and the Pats
    feed off of this type of philosophy.

    I'm talking about teams,with very talented personnel,
    who let "ego",get in the way of their success.

    Teams like Herm Edwards and the KC Chiefs.
    I heard Baldinger on NFL Total Access,breaking down 16 plays,when the Chiefs left their Left Tackle,alone in space,trying to block Dwight Freeney.

    16 TIMES!!!! Why?.....you ask
    Because....."We do,what we do"

    Pittsburgh,when they played us at home?

    BLITZBURG!!!!,,,,,,Why?......you ask
    Because....."We do,what we do"

    Dallas,Giants,Seattle,Bears,etc.......not gonna change......"We do,what we do"

    Now,to Schotty and the Chargers.
    Great talent on paper.....they'll try to run all day with LT,even though they're a 3-4 base,they'll blitz
    their LB's.......all day.

    If this isn't successful in the 1st half......don't matter......"We do,what we do".

    The Patriots on the other hand......don't care,
    "small" ball or "big" ball .......doesn't matter,we'll
    adjust on the fly.

    This doesn't mean we can't be totally "killed",by
    these type of teams,we can.

    But,in a close game in the 2nd half,you can always
    count on the "we do,what we do" teams to run out
    of answers against the "constantly -morphing",
    type of team,like the Patriots.

    This is a subtle and intrinsic advantage.

    good post...impossible to quantify with statistics alone...simply have to have watched the game to see that Dave Thomas one week, Jabar Gaffney the next, Reche Caldwell another and Dillon/Maroney in between is status quo for both the offensive and defensive game planning...

    we really are lucky bastards in NE these days...because...win or lose Sunday, we'll be right back here next year having the same discussions...

    Good post. You explained precisely why a team with inferior (compared to SD, Indy etc.) personnel such as the Jets can compete in the NFL; they have the ability to adjust in-game and confuse the opponent. There is a reason teams that are coached by the likes of Belichick and Mangini pull off so many upsets while teams coached by the likes of Mike Martz and Herm Edwards never can win the big one.
