    Saban and Belichick still run similar schemes. Saban has a ton more talent (relative to the competition) and is a lot more aggressive in blitzing. I, too, would like to see more of that but we need to actually get there when we blitz. The number of times we sent 5 or 6 this year and got nowhere close to the QB :(

    I agree that when the Pats blitzed, they failed and left defenders in coverage alone on an island far too often. That is why I say talent is more important than scheme right now.

    So would I (just not every week as I am still in college and don't have the kind of money to do that). Go figure...
