with no pats game tommorow (and also stuck with oak@miami and SF@STL here in the bay area) coupled with the thurs loss,iam trying to look ahead to next week, what the pats need to do to win the game ? here are some debatable thoughts should we start the game in no huddle. i think help this banged up defense, the offense has to step up which sounds funny without brady but probablyis the reality.i want jmcd to start and/or play with the no huddle a siginificant time -try something different. We need to switch from the ball control to airball early to score early. -try something else other than the draw that too with faulk in the RZ -on defense, this is the biggest test for dean pees. he hasnt solved the wildcat vs the fins or even when other teams ran it with against us a few times. one possible thing they might try is to play like they would play vick or vince young. pats have had usualy good success against mobile qb's so maybe there is something the the pats try. -speaking of defense , we have talked a lot about the bend dont break defense switching to attack mode. i dont think its BB's style and i think he will continue to be patient with it. might change some matchups and coverage schemes but i dont think the base changes. although if iam not wrong i did see mayo blitz one or two times early against the bills. -double/triple/cover fasano. -make up the ST crap on thurs. its a good time for a kickoff return or decent punt returns. Apologize for comparing past teams but we usually win close games. Whenever we have lost its been blowouts majority of the times. thats why the indy and jets games are hard to swallow since its new territory. We need to start win the close games a little more regularly. Here is to start in miami of a 6 game season.
