    Out-fargin'-standing! Reiss hits another one out of the park with the depth and personnel discussion, including noting that of the more banged up teams, only one is going to the Playoffs at this point.

    *I consider the Jest to have clinched a Wildcard berth as they prepare for the Jokeland Faiders to stumble into New Jersy.

    "It's not just tennis -- No. 1 against No. 1. It's the whole compilation. Somebody can have better 1-2-3 players, but their 11 [on the field] might not be better than the combined performance of someone else's 11."

    this quote made me think of the bengles

    Great piece, thanks. Someone should email it to Daniel Snyder with the title, "how to build a Championship-winning team".

    I found this interesting...
    ""One of the big things is working with every player, and the assistant coaches do a great job," Belichick said. "You have your guys who are obviously playing, that you try to win with every week, and then there are guys who may not see any playing time and may look like they're a long way from playing -- and you coach them all the same. With good coaching, practice reps after practice reps, you hope they continue to improve, and then when they have to go in and play, you hope they go in and play pretty adequately.

    "We've seen that many times on the offensive line, the secondary, and that's a real credit to the players who are working hard and stay prepared, and to the coaches who take it upon themselves to put just as much into guys who aren't playing as ones who are."


    It's obvious that some players who aren't playing (e.g. Thomas) have been paying attention more than others.
