Anyone who's read about our former great dynasty (11 in 13), Bill Russell's Celtics, knows that there's more to winning than putting your talent straight up against the opposition. Often, there's deception. Run the same play the same way every time except that one crucial play that decides a playoff game. When Russell played against Chamberlain, he couldn't stop him, only contain him. Russell was 6'9" 220, Chamberlain 7'1" 275. Chamberlain had a variety of shots and often would seem to have one shot that was unstoppable that night. Whether it was the fade, finger roll or hook, with the game on the line, Chamberlain would go to the "money" move that had worked all night and... swat! blocked and redirected to half court for an easy basket and the W. Russell, knowing he couldn't stop him had intentionally overplayed. When the crucial play came Russell knew what was coming and that was all the edge he needed. In a meaningless second half against Miami, was Belichick trying to setup the league? There were scouts from every team. He had gone to Moss (when I say he, I mean BB, McD and Brady. Anybody don't think they're on the same page by now?) in the Jets game despite coverage also. I saw a play in the fins game where the safety's playing half way and actually leans toward, then sprints for the double teamed Moss on the right flank, with a single covered player running a post. If we know for sure, (like Russell knew) that the safety will go for triple coverage, we are playing 10 on 8 otherwise. Seems to me, that sets up a slight variation to the same play leading to at least one wide open receiver. Seems to me a play like that might come in handy in the post season. Thoughts?
