The season is a Marathon, not a sprint. To Tampa Bay and Baltimore its was very important to them to win the games. They need to establish a winning tradition. They game planned for the Patriots ... it was very obvious when Cassel audibled, Tamp Bay immediately called another defense. They had to be prepared to do that. Last season we fell 2:50 short of another Super Bowl victory. Yes that game showed some weaknesses that if not corrected will be exposed. However, we sat out 20 guys with assortment of ailments. Do you think if it was regular season game we would see such a Vanilla defense? Do you think Tom Brady would play hurt? It's a long season, lets just put in the time and be ready when the season kicks off against Kansas City.
