    Belichick, the consummate football historian's historian, must remember that the hook and ladder worked against the Bolts in 1982 during the playoffs. Miami pulled it off.

    Boise State recently pulled it off.

    Paging Chad Jackson for the hook-and-ladder play. Chad Jackson, are you ready to take it to the house?

    Just a thought. If they do it successfully, I'll probably spill my salsa all over the family photos on the walls.

    I know the Pats used it in the laste 70s I think...not bad given you can get someone open and get a receiver close enough for an easy lateral.

    They are not going to need gimic plays to beat this team; ram the ball down their throats and stuff the run, force their QB to win the game, which he will not do.................
