    The short pass play calls worked to perfection today.

    Under McDaniel's playcalling, the Patriots offense scored 24 points vs. a team that had been allowing an average of 9 points per game at home, and Brady had a 97 passer rating vs. a defense against which opposing quarterbacks have a total passer rating of 63.8 (which is #2 in the NFL, behind the Bears.)

    There are deep routes being run, but the receivers aren't getting separation down field. If guys could get open deep more, Brady would throw deep more. I'm glad he's not trying to force the ball long as much as he seemed to earlier in the year.

    C'mon NEM, McDaniels has had two good weeks in a row. He hasn't reverted to the power run game. Clearly the strength of the O-Line is pass protection and let Brady pick the defense apart.

    The pass set up the run. Dave Thomas has stepped up as well as Gaffney. Faulk was very valuable.

    I love what they are doing now spreading it out versus what they did earlier in the year.

    Now it's still yet to be seen how they will handle a team that blitzes alot or has a great defensive end or outside linebacker. And how they will do versus fast lb's.

    You have to be happy that they seem to be getting the passing game in gear going into the playoffs and people are getting healthy.

    Congrats to McDaniels.

    Actually, we had great success with sideline routes that widened the field.

    Those were used a lot indeed.

    I was especialy referring to the crossing route where Caldwell was stopped short of a first down.

    Maroney's TD run was a great call.
    Would they please stop throwing those quick outs to WR's, esp. on 3rd and 3+. Never works. Overall a very successful game plan.

    I thought overall the playcalling was great today. I think our only problem in the fourth was that we didn't have the talent to match up with Jacksonville with a clock eating running game. It wasn't McDaniels' fault that Brady overthrew a wide open Troy Brown which would have given us a first down and probably ended any chance for the Jags to come back. It wasn't McDaniels' fault that Caldwell dropped a short pass or he and Brady didn't connect on a play before where he was fairly open.

    Sometimes when the offense doesn't work, it is actually the players fault. I'm sure there were a couple of play calls that McDaniels probably would like to have back, but quite a few of the problems I saw in the fourth quarter because Brady overthrew a receiver or a receiver couldn't bring in the ball.

    You're obviously baiting with that comment! ;)

    The Pats' offense put up 24 points Sunday - the most by a visiting team at Alltel this season. We had 3 TD drives of 82, 78 and 68 yards against one of (if not the ) most physical squads in the league IN THEIR HOUSE.

    All that and a 'W' gets McDaniels a lot of praise IMO.

    The latest puppet Coach hired by Belichick to run the Pats spread offense and implement the "beat them with smarts", not expensive athletes philosophy, has done a fine job.

    He has gotten the team to 11-4 and counting with a totally new WR corps and rookies and sophomores dotted through out the Offensive roster. He has Coached up the athletes to put up 345 points, 23 points a game, and developed a deadly red zone efficiency, as ordered.

    He has also duly conserved tinfoil, used bubblegum, and thread, as instructed;, and turned the cap surplus over to Bill to spend on extravagant and unnecessary expenditures like a prize Defensive line and lots of defensive stars.

    These are all unnecessary and actually unfordable, when you have "suitable" offensive stars. Just ask Paymeaton and Polian. When they do their budgets there just never seems to be anything left for the "stop 'em" guys...

    Very little to complain about in today's O game plan, controlled the line of scrimmage and time of possession. I suspect that all of this is purposeful, and extremely confusing to D coordinators who we will play in the upcoming tournament. Overall, McDaniels and the O did a very good job,against a good D team in their house.

    This was a very well thought out game with some of the best execution of the season. Wright filled in well at nose, Rodney's hits were heard from miles around, and Brady's found a new favorite in Thomas. Great game, well earned and now we're on a nice roll to meet Tenn. Happy Holiday's everyone!

    Nobody wants to discuss your crap later. Why would you want to savor this title, its not as if you are a fan who has pulled for it. IF you actually document calls that you don't like and then use them to make a point you are either sick or so caught up with yourself its ridiculous. Oh wait it's both.

    Yes, yes I know you were a fan b4 I was born blah blah blah. Go fing the sleigh tracks on top of the nursing home.

    Thre are certain people on this board that cannot give credit where credit is due. Their own ego's are bigger than their love for the Patriots.

    Those "all seeng - all knowing" egotists don't see that Josh is never that far away from BB when calling plays. Charlie use to be in his own area when calling plays. So, if you want to keep taking shots a Josh then you are really taking shots at BB.

    Yeterdays game was well planned and well executed againts a very good defensive team. Was it perfectly called and executed? No, but very few game plans are.

    I use to feel sorry for people who can't help themselves but to be nit-pickers.But, now I just hold them in contempt.

    If anyone thinks that this is directed at them, all I can say is, if the shoe fits wear it.

    One way or another adjustments were made to the offense this week, adjustments in the form of better choices of plays, better mixing of the attack, better use of both the personnel on hand and the better use of variety to keep the opponents' D on their heels.

    Very few teams possess the overwhelming talent on offense to run plays at will and simply blow out the opposing defense. The current Patriots are no exception. For the Pats to succeed on offense they need to be creative in both their designing and calling of plays and their use of the correct personnel to do the job.

    Anybody who thinks the Pats play-calling has been flawless this year has been drinking too much high-sucrose soft drink. I have yet to hear even Tom Brady say: "Well, we sure kicked ass today and we are all set in our offensive set-up; no one can touch us." Ha!! Quite the opposite. Tom knows better than most that in order to win consistently in the NFL takes *constant* effort in both the creative design and the successful execution of that design. Failing either is a loss at the end of the game. "We need to work harder," is all I've ever heard Brady say.

    The Patriots game plan every week on offense. Always have in the BB era.

    Run against the Bengals, pass against the Vikings etc.

    I would say they usually know what they want to do and the execution has been the problem.

    Whatever it is they think they can do against Miami usually doesn't work and you'd think they'd have that defense figured out by now.

    I for one feel it is obvious from this year's (and last year's) offensive scheming and execution -- with the latter being in some part a factor of the former -- has been less creative or effective than it was under Charlie.

    BB's history has been defense, and he has clearly shown himself to be a real genius on that side of the ball this past decade, and possibly longer. I do not think BB's offensive skills have been on the same level, although I think he has improved over time, especially in his use of personnel for specific types of plays.

    I don't call that nit-picking; I call it tying to improve, which is a necessity in the NFL. I saw on the Colts' board, referenced by another poster on this board, that there are calls from Colts fans for Dungy's firing. That's what happens when a good coach doesn't make the needed adjustments to get the job done.

    Our offense is top ten in yards. And scoring. And Football Outsiders' ratings - despite losing all it's WR other than Brown. Why does McDaniels still suck for some of you ? I think he's done a really, really good job. And scoring 24 on a top five defense yesterday did nothing to change that.

    Digger, that's not really necessary. If you don't agree with the man, you can say it without resorting to such negative ad hominem. Really, it drags down the whole atmosphere. NEM's got a point; he's an "old dude" who feels he's got a right to say it now because he may not be around to say it later. If you don't agree say so with civility and more people will tend to listen more to your point. Ad hom just weakens whatever good point you have to share.

    I really that numbers mean nothing to most of you and "how it looks" is what matters but this is our best offense except for 2004 when everything was intact. The fact that this is the case with what happened at WR is impressive - the fact that the fans are disappointed with it is perplexing.

    I vote for #2. Some teams run the same basic offense each week. You don't see 3 TEs, then 2 RBs, empty backfield etc.etc.etc.

    The Patriots have a lot of new people on offense.

    I think the Pats have tightened it up by simplifying some things and running more focused practices.

    The game plan is formed during practice by BB Brady and the OC.

    The extent to which the OC pulls some magical sequence of plays out of his ass during games is exaggerated to a ludicrous extent by some posters.

    Neither is he at fault for lack of diligence in learning the game plan by the players.

    If the players are dedicated now to keeping up with a very difficult learning curve week to week, the game plans will be there.

    Considering that isn't definite yet, judging the relative creativity of McDaniels vs. Weis is still premature IMO.
