    did you notice that BB was giving wright, green, and even marquise hill reps yesterday? no wonder we were softer than usual on the run.

    do you think this is a conscious approach BB uses -- in certain games, using the sbus to get them ready for the post season by playing them in pressure situations? just seems to me if you wanted the best chance to win, you'd play seymour every down

    we dont know what the problem was with seymour so its difficult to make a judgement being on the outside... but its hard to believe the theory the pats were not playing to loss and we are calling the team all kinds of things...

    BB isn't one to do something just for squeaks and gigs. Seymour is playing injured, and maybe that has something to do with him not playing the whole game - clearly the coaching staff must have felt that in his injured state he wasn't completely effective, and I'd have to agree.

    As for other rotations - when they went with a primarily one receiver set (Jackson) and ran right over the Jets in the 2nd quarter, that was quite effective. Jackson is a better blocker than I had anticipated - I suppose blocking is mostly just effort and obviously as a rookie he wants to prove himself.

    Again, they aren't just doing these things for the heck of it.
