    This is awesome stuff - I've been reading the Bowen articles as they come out, and they really are good. Especially for people like me that never played the game so its a nice insight.

    This is about 8 million times better than ProFootballFocus, FootballOutsiders, Joyner, ESPNInsider, etc. and all those sites that try to apply metrics (and basically, baseball stuff) to football. Don't get me wrong, those make for an interesting read - but in football, you can't make any judgment without looking at the tape.

    First thing that popped into my mind was:

    "This was not interference on Bethea,but the Darius Butler coverage was?"..........pathetic:bricks:

    Very nice insight here. Gives you a clue about how fast plays happen in the NFL as well. Bethea really didn't even take a step toward the LoS on the PA fake. He just kind of sat back on his feet for a second. Unfortunately for the Colts, that second was too long. Didn't they time this pattern and come to the conclusion that Moss was running something like a 4.3 40 at the time?

    That's exactly right. The Butler flag was horrendous. He had his back turned to Collie and was attempting to make a play for the ball. Bethea was, pretty clearly, trying to grab Moss' arms.

    What is idiotic is that it's a first down and he should have seen that since Moss goes to short motion, he's trying to avoid a jam, therefore a long play is coming, so it's all on Bethea.

    And actually Moss got away with a bump or two there that was just enough to tap Bethea and throw him off tracking the ball. Old WR trick.

    Moss get jammed so often, why dont the Pats do more of this (i.e pre snap motion), even fooling the defense and actually running ?

    Because there's no defense in the NFL that hasn't seen it all before. The key to successfully fooling an experienced D is to use your tricks sparingly. Just ask any competent and self-respecting magician how often they're willing to repeat a trick.

    I made a topic on this after the Colts game. It was ripping on Jim Caldwell.

    How any coach can expect a safety to stop Moss 1-1 is crazy to me. The Colts are the only team not to figure out that the cover2 does not work against elite wrs

    Okay, that's great. But how many teams run the Tampa 2 and play the Pats? Not many. Unless you have crazy pass rushers (like the Colts), it's one of the worst schemes in the NFL.
