Default Re: 2010 Playoff Highlights -Jets beat Patriots - Avenge embarrassing loss

On 1-10, Jets rushed 4.
JJ Watt (I mean, Shaun Ellis) beat the RG straight away and sacked Brady for a 7-yd loss.
Even though it was quick, this also qualified as a coverage sack.
The 4th rusher, 97, held off a little bit to slightly nudge Edelman (coming out of the backfield),
and hovered around for a hair waiting for the quick pass.
Brady saw that, and tried to go to his next read.
That was when Ellis blind-sided him.

Still, the Pats were able to move the ball all the way to the Jets 7 in 6 plays.
4 runs, 3 completed passes (10, 3, 28)

The Jets rushed 4 twice and brought 5 once.

On the 4-man straight rush, Brady still had a rather clean pocket and found the TE Crumpler for 28.

on 2nd and 5 at the Jets 7, the Pats went play action from their jumbo formation (single back, single receiver.)
They faked a run while sneaking the TE Crumpler up the seam.
Crumpler started out blocking as if it was a run.
Brady threw a good pass, but Crumpler simply dropped it in the end zone.
That was a sure TD.

On third and 5, the Pats went with their 11 personel (3 WR, 1 TE).
The Jets showed 3 and rushed 3, dropping 8 into coverage.
Brady can see this and he was wanting to go through the whole progression
(thinking that he has some time.)
As the RDE went around the LT, Brady felt the pressure and tried to step up the pocket.
"J J Watt" split the double team, however, and sacked Brady for a loss of 9
Brady could have dumped off the ball to Woodhead out of the backfield but he didn't.
The RDE didn't turned back upfield until 3 seconds had elapsed.
Brady ought to be aware of this, but he wasn't.
Not a good play by Brady, and quite uncharacteristic of him.

The Pats settled for a FG.
