I've seen Hoge a couple of times over the past two days and I'm a little confused about his statement that the Pats have had trouble with 3-4 defenses. He notes their losses to the Jets and the Browns, two 3-4 teams, and says that teams "like Pittsburgh" who run a 3-4 can give them problems. He fails to point out that a) the Pats played the Jets a second time with a different result (to put it kindly); b) the Pats crushed Pittsburgh at Heinz; and c) the Browns played a lot of 3-2-6 and even 2-3-6 defenses to flood the zone. I don't mind Hoge most of the time. Can't figure him out on this one, though.
