It's a long article (which is a good thing to me) that really gives you some deep insight into how the Patriots run their offense. It allows a lot more flexibility and adjustments during the game, and is not rigid in its application.

I think it's brilliant, and certainly a new way of doing things than what we've seen for the past 8 years.
Great article. Thanks!

Not that I'm aware. You need an approved issued press I.D. to get inside the doors. You can call public relations but unless you have legitimate press credentials don't expect any favors. The next best thing for fans is they usually broadcast PCs live on houstontexans.com.

Small world. TheSidelineView's John Harris was college teammates with OB.
O'Brien tells Harris after losing they would do fine rest of year and the team lost all remaining games? I sorta wished you had not posted that.

Normally don't give judgements until I see on-field product worth quantifying, but league-wide opinion seems to be we nailed it.

I bet they'll schedule our game against New England in Prime Time.... the student vs the master. They're goi...

That's right... that's right. We don't play the Patriots this year because they're at the top of their conference & we're at the bottom of the weakest division in football.

Pretty much every championship winning coach has an aura about them that makes the outsider think he's a dick or a-hole. Lombardi, Parcells, Belichick, (among others), all considered hardasses. Two that were aloof - Walsh and Landry - were still stand-offish and could stare a hole through players.

Many of them have quick tempers and do not tolerate bull****.

After watching the Lombardi documentary on "A Football Life" the past couple of weeks, his son nailed it when he said Vince had a quick temper and perfectionist attitude. Two great things for a coach but lousy for a father.
