Through the first 3 weeks, Mayo had been in on nearly every snap. When Bruschi was taken off the field in coverage situations, Mayo remained on. This changed for week 4. We saw a new dime package where Guyton was the only ILB on the field, not Mayo. I'll have to go back and look, but I also think that Guyton was the lone ILB on the field in the nickel package, 3-3-5, which had previously been the role of Mayo. Just wanted to get some thoughts on that...is that due to Mayo's [undiscolsed] injury? Mayo's subpar play in coverage against Miami? Or was it just specific game planning, Belichick implementing a new package to confuse O'Sullivan and counteract Martz's pass happy offense? If it is that, does it still reflect on Mayo? I'd like to hear what others think - personally, I thought Mayo was fine in coverage in the first two weeks, like other members of the middle of that defense, he had issues in the Miami game, but I'd be surprised if that was the reason for his reduced PT against San Fran.
