    As usual, great Reiss stuff. Check the full post for the formation and player breakdown stats.

    Troy deserves a raise.

    So does Mike.

    It would be interested to see when the 1 receiver, 2te, fb, and rb is employed. If it is usually in short yardage or long yardage and what down. if it is usually 3rd down.

    to me appears it is employed quite a but on first and second down.

    Great stuff. I wonder if he could do that for the previous 11 games.

    This is the kind of data
    that clubs routinely assemble.

    How much of it can be proprietary?

    If Mike could get this set released,
    couldn't a lot of it be published on the Pats website
    (or via Reiss' Pieces)?

    Many of us here would simply wallow in it.

    Wowww.... amazing that Brady didn't even crack the top 12! ;)

    Seriously - the real news is that Brown is out there for 97% of the offensive plays and gets only 2 passes for 4 yards. Was he meant to be a diversion by taking some focus off of Caldwell even if he wasn't getting the ball thrown to him?

    And if that's the case, he won't be much of a diversion for long if Brady isn't going to anyone other than mainly Caldwell or Watson - I'd look for Brown to have a big game.

    It's a pretty safe bet for most DCs judging from the numbers that they should double team Watson or Caldwell or both if they can - that should free up Graham as well assuming he's not relegated to blocking.

    And THIS game should be one that's going to see a lot of hurry up offense and attacking through the air - less of a need for run blocking - so I'd expect that both Brown and Graham will have big games.

    First time I have seen it broken down that way, very impressive, particularly how many plays Gabriel (who often seems invisible) was in for.

    Reiss also did this once before, the week of the Vikings game:
