In response to TripleOG's comment:
These post game breakdown this year have been great to use and go back and look at things not visible from the Tv game. He does a good job breaking these downs. He is mostly on page with what I saw except I didnt realize at the time how hard the catch was that Amendola made at the 1. He think the pass could have been much better. My bad. I had previously thought the pass was catchable.
Other than that, he points out which plays he thinks falls on who. He does howeve point out that the Pats offense requires WRs to read defenses and so its hard to really know who was supposed to be where and all that. Good Read and sheds some light on WHY we looked so bad and also gives positives going forward. He credits a lot of it to the Bengals have a very good defensive unit.
The second paragraph gets into the wrs needing to read the defense sh!t. This is the disconnect people...
YOU CAN'T HAVE 2 variables on the same PLAY... !!!
Brady reads something. WR reads something. YOU'RE ASKING FOR FAILURE.
SIMPLIFY the system. everybody do a pattern. Make it depend on the scheme of the play call , like cover all these guys but, there will be another guy open...
that is how Denver's offense operates... Instead of giving the QB the excuse that ...oh sh!t, that wr was supposed to zig there and he zagged ... Lame.
Denver's defense doesn't run anything like what you said.
There isn't a single offense in the NFL without variable routes. They all run that way. NE's is a touch more complex, but it's no more complex than the other teams that run it like the Giants and a handful more. It wasn't too complex for the 2000 Pats who won Superbowls, or the 1990s Pats, or the 1980s PAts.
IT wasn't too complex for the 1980s Giants, or the 1990s/2000s Steelers too.
In fact, this "cr@p" offense you are hanging out to dry has won more Superbowls since its inception than any other system, including the simplest: the Walsh West-Coast.
All teams have variable routes .... otherwise you are running your WRs into coverage ~50% of the time. The kids just need to learn it.
