And by The Belichick Factor, I mean the idea that come playoff time, that the fact that Belichick is a genius and smarter than any other coach out there will lead to him create a gameplan bound to F with the other team. Because of all the talent this team has, The Belichick Factor hasn't come into play much during the regular season. On both sides of the ball, the Pats have just gone out and executed, no surprises. We saw some game planning defensive-wise against the Cowboys, and the Pats have continued the trend of staying in nicks and dime packages, using Rodney almost as a LB, etc. against passing attacks throughout the season. But that's been pretty much it. Offensively, if anything, this team has announced to the other team what it's going to do (ie, spread) and just gone out and done it. It's hard to measure exactly how tangible it is, but the TBF (The Belichick Factor) is something to keep in mind as we approach the playoffs, and we start to hear talking heads say things like "The Jags are the team that can beat the Pats..." blah blah blah.
