But his yards per pass completion went from 10.5 in the reg blowout to 5.8 in the playoff loss, and they got to Brady 2 more times. Pats went from 4-10 on 3rd downs to 5-14 in the second game. More 3rd downs, and more 3rd and longs I would presume. And the pats did not get a touchdown till the end of the 3rd quarter in that game. I mean, its some pretty damning evidence.


Side note: Dirty Sanchez went from 3 pics to 3 tds in the second game also. And the Pats have a better running game now.

I just posted the game notes of the first half of the Jets play-off game; there's more than meet the eyes.

I found it interesting that Brady was getting sacked at a higher average per dropback when the Ravens and Jets were not bringing extra defenders versus when they did.

Nice! Saw them. So what does that game tell you when looking at the stats provided?

I think Wade's aggressive style is something that plays into one of Brady's strengths. Do you think there is any chance that Wade dials it back and tries to force the Patriots to run more?
There is a misconception in the NFL world that if you pressure Brady he will fold and lose his game. This is only true if those pressure comes from a four man rush.

I'm shocked that folks here think this is news. Didn't we learned that from playing GB? I remember an hour leading to the mnf espn and nfl networks had analysts advising Texans to limit their blitz against Brady base on their own studies of NE.

I can't figure out what I'm looking at, but if I stack these numbers a certain way I'll tell you what you saw.

So back to my question, are we even equipped to run an efficient zone? I do know Watt and Smith are monsters on the D-Line and would more than play their part.

I hope Newton is healthy enough to be more efficient thanHarris the last time.
I hope Jones has a better feel for what he's up against.
I hope Brandon Brooks continues to improve as well.

1) I'm pretty sure most people here recognize that the Texans are underdogs, and will have to play their best game to have a chance at taking down the pats, so you obviously don't know what you're taliking about.


2) Bum Phillips WAS a defensive master mind when he coached, but he's 89 and retired now.


Now beat it, and put your head back in Brady's jock.

Wade is stupid and fat.

Ridley shares RB duties with Woodhead, Vereen and Bolden.

Teddy Johnson was talking about those stats on 790 AM yesterday morning.

I should have clarified about the longer than 3 seconds, and much thanks to Tailgate for adding more details.

One of the Pats fans had a stat showing Brady getting the ball out on the average in some 2.22 seconds.

The number of times he held the ball for over 3.5 seconds is probably few.
And some of that probably on play action where usually you don't complete as many passes, but when you do, it's a long gain, or a TD.

Like I just went back and took a quick look.

We rushed 4 four times in the first quarter, Brady still got the ball out very quickly.

His quick release is pretty amazing, especially when you consider his accuracy. Of course, we're talking a HoF player here while he's still playing, so it's not a surprise.

The only way to deal with Brady is keep him off the field with long, sustained offensive drives. Sort of a war of attrition like the first time we finally beat Manning. Lots of run game, some good defensive plays, and try to win a close one in the 4th.

On offense, somebody who really hasn't stepped up with a big game needs to step up in this one.

Any of these will mean one of these guys made a significant contribution, IMO
Posey - 4-5 catches; 75-80 yds; 1 TD
Martin - 2-3 catches; 55-60 yds reciving; 2-3 rushes; 25 yds rushing (end around)
Jean - 3-4 catches; 55-60 yds; 1 TD; 2-3 red zone targets

Personally, I am interested in seeing KMart get a few more end around opportunities, and also being used as a decoy end around.

I don't think it's vital to this game, however I really think the guy is a play maker, but he still needs to work on his hands, and they need to find better ways of getting him the ball.
