    If you could add a play to the Pats' playbook, what would it be?

    I'm not talking about mundane stuff. I'm talking about the sort of thing that would have people going "What the he!! was that?" [Obviously, the play should be both legal and theoretically plausible--I don't think having Welker at LT, for example, will work well. ;) ]

    An obvious example of the type of play I'm talking about would be Vinatraitor's TD throw to Troy Brown against the Rams.

    What can y'all come up with?

    I say we let Moss run the Wide Receiver reverse pass as he did in Minnesota. Not very innovative, but I imagine it would be very effective...

    is it me or are you slighty obsessed with punters



    as for the topic of the thread i think a double reverse with Welker and Moss would be fun to watch even if it probably would not work

    Apparantly we don't have a punter that can handle it...

    As long as we keep that direct-snap to Faulk for 2-point conversions, I'm happy.

    I'm thinking this one would work pretty well

    Let's start by slipping a little special Gatorade to Keith Bulluck tonight - the guy definitely needs to "relax" as it is, and this might prevent him from injuring someone

    A fumblerooski goes to the guard, not the running back, and it's no longer legal.

    FWIW, I'd love to see a fake FG with Matt Cassel picking up the ball and throwing it for a TD.

    Extra points, of course, if he threw it to Vrabel. :D

    Logan Mankins is the left guard. Only the intentional fumble part of the fumblerooski play is no longer legal. Trick handoffs to interior linemen are legal.

    I'm resisting the urge to call such a play a "rooski" or, even worse, a "guard counter."

    Wow, I discovered my brain's been turned off! You said Mankins and I read Maroney!

    A Tom Brady direct run from shotgun. Seriously. Here me out on this. Q should be lined up under center in shotgun, it doesn't show up that way.





    A base dime D


    wr wr lt lg c rg rt wr wr

    Q RB(faulk)

    Outside right wr: fly
    right slot wr: 5 yards up, then cross left
    left slot wr: 10 yard out hitch
    outside left wr: fly
    faulk: immediately bolts for the left flat.
    This leaves the right side wide open. You give the play every look of a pass, then 2 seconds after the ball is snapped, the o line would shift to the right giving Brady blocking and then he could pick up some yardage. This would not be designed to pick up huge yardage (maybe Cassel would be better at running this), but it might work on a 3rd and 4, and would surprise the D, which would be the plays main objective.

    Line up with 3 wide outs all bunched on the left side Heath Evans lined up in the backfield, After alot of fake adjustments and calls Brady makes at the line he pump fakes a quick out to stallworth then he hands off to heath evans who throws a bomb to a wide open randy moss who started his route at the left broke in the middle of the field waited for evans to get the handoff then used his speed and elusiveness to get to the right sideline to make the catch uncontested by the cornerback only to outrun the safety which is a give me
    for a clear lane to the end zone.

    I know I know but you gotta admit evans throwing the ball with brady setting up a block would be interesting.

    I saw an SEC school use this fake fg a few years back. The ball is snapped to the holder and ask the kicker approaches, he cuts behind the holder who flips it over his shoulder to the kicker who runs it in for a td.

    I know what one I would get rid of. That horrible double reverse that they keep calling and keep getting stuffed on.
