1. Start the game with play action! I truly believe the Colts are going to immediatly sell out against the run as they did the last two games. You have to soften them up. Get those guys out of the box and quick. I'm not saying start throwing downfield immedaitely. But start getting first downs. 2. DO NOT COME OUT EMPTY BACKFIELD IN THE SHOTGUN! The strength of the Colts D lies in it's edge pass rush. All Brady going in the shotgun does is give Mathis and Freeney a more straight path to get to Brady. 3. If the play action starts pulling them out of the box, start feeding the run. 4. No cute stuff. No quadruple reverses, no ten minute to develop counters, none of that stuff. 5. WATCH SANDERS. If he cheats up to the line, have an audible ready to go after him (throw against him). Pats got to find a way to keep him out of the box. Even if the pass doesn't work every time, it will make him hesitate before coming into the box. The guy is just freaking insane. 6. No going for it all on 3rd and makeable downs. I hate seeing nothing more then Brady throwing it 50 yards down the field on 3rd and three only to see a corner and safety meeting the receiver at the ball, all the while faulk is standing alone a yard past the first down marker. Pats need to shorten this game. We need long sustained drives. don't throw away a high probability first down for a low probability prayer. 7. Keep the Colts in front of you. The Pats pass defense is suspect at best. What are the odds Manning is going to have his third bad game in a row? Make them drive the field and try to keep them to field goals, or possible cause a turnover. That long pass yesterday where the Charger defender stepped out of bounds scared me, because I gaurantee you neither Manning, Wayne, nor Clark would have made that mistake. And either Wayne or Harrison would have gotten much more seperation. 8. NO STUPID PENALTIES. We all saw how the (classy)Chargers cheapshotting Patriot players. And the 15 yard penalties that they caused. Manning doesn't need 15 free yards. He is perfectly capable of getting those yards without the Pats help. Lets make him earn them. That's really it. Guys, realize this. We are about to witness one of the great moments in sports. Patriots vs Colts, Brady verses Manning. Isn't this how it is suppose to be. For all there glory, we never saw Elway verses Marino. This is special. Brady has the better defense, Manning has the better offensive weapons. Good luck to the Colts (Even though I don't really mean it). We all know how special winning a SB feels. If you do get it, it is something you will cherish for ever. But if you do, I atleast have a pretty good DVD collection of Patriot Superbowl victories to chear me up!
