Globe story today: Will Patriots keep the blitz coming? - The Boston Globe Earlier in the week, there was also an ESPN story about the Patriots turning their D loose: Wilfork: Game plan let us be aggressive - New England Patriots Blog - ESPN Boston I thought this might be of interest on this board because there's always a lot of talk about read-and-react vs. turn-them -loose. The Patriots tend to be the former but this week they were the latter. I'm curious about what some of the better X-and-O folks here have to say about this change. A one-off thing to suit the plan v the Steelers (my guess) or something we'll see more of? The players sure seemed to respond well to it.
