Reiss speculates: http://www.boston.com/sports/football/patriots/articles/2007/12/24/win_wasnt_showy_maybe_by_design/ Makes a lot of sense. I think BB is using the "blueprint" idea to his advantage. If you know how teams "think" they can beat you, then you know what their likely approach to beating you will be, and then you can figure out to adjust. I've been saying for a couple weeks I think we'll see a lot less 4-wide spread in the playoffs, and revert back to 3-wide, 1 TE, 1 RB once our TEs are healthy. I'm more convinced after yesterday that this will be the case. They're just biding their time now until playoff time.
