It really does seem like he's not watching the game sometimes.
It seems like you're not watching the game.
This running right at Wilfork thing is crap. We didn't run at him, he was cutting through the line & getting to Foster regardless where we ran it. That was an OL problem.
And as far as exploiting weaknesses, again if we're seeing a favorable matchup on a safety/LB, it's going to look like OD having a big game one week, then Andre the next week, then Graham one week, or Casey one week. You're not going to see a big Halo around the guy saying, "We're attacking this guy" like you would on Madden.
Matt is pretty good about spreading the ball around, but when one guy is above the pack, it's not necessarily that guy stepping up. It's us taking advantage of something Kubiak/Dennison/Matt sees.
