    Every defense has tendencies that can be exploited by an offense. But the defense can use that to their advantage too, by reversing the tendency at a later, critical time in the season. Even though Jackson properly read the tendency in this case, I'm pretty sure BB didn't draw up Josh Barrett playing halfway down route 1 and not filling the vacated zone.

    McCourty and Barrett actually were confused right before the snap. Barrett had to switch up with McCourty going inside to outside. Barrett wasn't even set when the ball was snapped, and from then he was trailing Jackson as he almost got picked by McCourty's guy.

    More evidence that this inexperienced group needs more time to jell in this shortened pre-season season. As a Pats homo, I hope they have the requisite football smarts and physical talent to continue to develop.

    In other words, give an offense enough drives and eventually they figure something out.

    Duh

    I'm glad that two seconds of self-adulation outweighs revealing valuable secrets for the next meeting.

    The question is, should the Pats let the Bills beat them to keep the Jets out of the playoffs, or should they throttle the Bills 54-6?

    Re: Fred Jackson says the Bills knew what defense the Pats were using late in the gam

    If you look how Belichick calls defenses over the years. He often dials back the playbook early in the season only to open it up as the year goes on. I think 2005 is the extreme example where they totally opened the playbook in the second half vs. KC that year.

    Especially with three starters/significant players out, they needed to dial it back. I don't even know if they blitzed once that game.

    There's really not much of a secret to beating a matador defense. ;)

    The Bills offense knew Brady was going to throw that pick-6 and Mccoutry was going to tackle Jackson at the 1 yard line? They are scary good :D

    Bill Parcels admitted he did it back in the day... we forgot to mention the prequel to Spygate and
    of course the Many Other Spygates that go uncaught and unnoticed :eek:

    It's the NFL. It happens all the time. It's coaches and or players watching a lot of film. The only reason that we lost is that Brady threw 4 picks.

    On that specific play the Bills knew the Patriots tendencies and took advantage of the Patriots JAG safeties. On other plays they knew the Patriots would rush four and not get any real pressure allowing FitzPatrick time to pick apart the poorly defended 1:1 battles.

    Wow. You're taking that loss a lot harder than normal because you are obviously still in the denial stage. If you seriously can't see that there was a lot more to this loss than the 4 INTs then you need a tutorial.
