    You've got a talented QB who wilts under pressure.
    You've the gigantic Steve 'The House' Moore (a whole 309 lbs!) and an aging John Hannah on the line.
    Irving Fryar forgets to bring his knife to a knife fight with his wife.
    Stanley Steamer is still there but he's done as well.
    You've got a plucky defense with a great backfield and aging folks in the front center.

    You're facing an office that is basically Payton with high percentage passes from McMahon to Willie Gault.

    You're facing a 46 defense that is pretty much the consensus greatest defense of all time.

    What are the keys to this game that Belichick outlines like he does every week? The specific things he tells his players they need to do to win it. How does BB give us a victory in SB XX if we can put him in a time machine and send him back disguised as Ray Berry?

    Take away the strengths: Payton and Gault. Run blitz, pass blitz. Have Tippett move around like LT. Disquise coverages.

    Take away their blitz effectiveness: short passes like Miami did earlier in the year in the Bears' only loss. Start Grogan, put him in the shotgun and split out Collins and/or Craig to spread out the D.

    Probably would get killed anyway, but you might make it competitive for a half.

    Also, after the game, go up to Ditka and tell him he's an azz wipe for giving the one-yard TD to the Fridge and not Walter Payton. A disgrace that we have to relive watching every "Great NFL Teams" promo.

    run a west coast offense, which destroys the 46 defense (and is a main reason why it stopped being used)

    or just run the Patriot Run and Shoot. either would kill the base 46

    The 46 is a Man Coverage defense. have your athletes beat their athletes...or run Screens and Draws.
