I often have a long post after a game, but I am going to keep this short. The board seems quite busy, and I don't see the need to rehash the other points. * If any team the rest of the way doesn't flood the LOS with press coverage and blitzes on obvious passing downs vs. the Pats, they should seriously consider firing those responsible for the D game plan on the spot. NE has no answer for this. None of the WRs are good enough to consistently get free with only 2-3 seconds to work with and the OL is having some serious problems with blitz pick-up right now. Not only that, but having so many people at or near the LOS also effectively negates the screens and quick hitches that NE likes to run. * Relating to the above post, in hindsight it isn't that much of a surprise that NE would have so much difficulty against Miami yesterday. They basically did just what NY did, except that Miami has far better personnel. * That said, prior to Graham's fumble it seemed to me that NE's offense was doing OK. * Was is just me, or did Miami keep running that "delayed psuedo-screen where the RB lined up off to the left runs toward the middle of the line and is given a toss or pitch" play successfully? I think the last three times that play was used, I called it from the get go based on formation and situation...and is still worked. * I think I overestimated the DL depth. I like Green and Wright a lot as players, but whenever one of the big three goes out, the dropoff is obvious. * You know the blocking is bad when a QB can't even get a throw off on a designed roll out play. * Does anyone know if the Faulk-Brady-Graham play was intentional? It seemed to me that it started as a regualr pass to Brady that Miami defensed well. But if that was the case, why did Brady then throw the ball? And if it was intended to be a lateral from the beginning, why were the players positioned in such a way that a forward pass was a possibility? * The difference between Dillon of 2004 and Dillon of 2006 is remarkable. The guy looks like he is running in cement shoes right now. I guess I didn't keep this very short at all. Sorry about that.
