    Is the 3-4 commentators I've already heard (and I don't watch a lot of highlights) saying that the direct snap to Faulk was us copying the Dolphins.

    Um . . . I guess they haven't watched many of our games the past decade. Morons.

    On a similar note, I was stuck with the Chargers/Dolphins game out here in SoCal today, and they kept running the same wildcat formation (direct snap to ronnie brown, ricky williams in at RB, pennington at WR), I think 4 times in the first half, and the commentators were losing it over how unheard of the formation was. You'd think that the Dolphins hadn't run it a bunch of times just two weeks earlier.

    What about Tom Jackson, who said (and you have to listen carefully because they were going to commercial) that the Pats won with "SMOKE AND MIRRORS". What a horse's patoot!

    Something like 5 minutes before the direct snap was used in the Super Bowl, I was thinking:

    1. If the Pats scored, they'd go for 2.
    2. If they went for 2, they'd use the direct snap play, because it seemed to be automatic for about 3 yards.

    I remember from subsequent discussion that a number of you reported having similar thoughts.

    THAT'S how prominent the play is in the Pats' scheme.

    Heck, I'll take 3-1 without Brady any way I can get it. Smoke and mirrors, blood and guts, salt-n-pepa, it's all good.

    It must be killing people that we are 3-1.

    When I saw the play (no audio) I wondered if someone would comment that the play was Dolphin inspired. Ignorant on a couple of levels.

    The Patriots are 3-1 w/o Brady and the Chargers are 2-3. Who would have thought that going into this week? But I suppose the advantage is to the Chargers because they can just see what the Dolphins do and know that we will copy it. Damn those Dolphins for running that WR Screen! We were going to use it.

    I hope if the phins keep running that play some team does what I think BB should have in that game - when they flank chad out at WR line up an AD type across from him with instructions to ignore all else and just focus on thumping chad inside the 5yd zone. Would roughing the passer still apply in that case? Who knows who cares, if they gonna hang their qb out there naked then take full advantage dammit
