Do you know how to solve it? I'll tell ya..
Commit to a lead back, keep Brady under Center and don't turn it over. We did the first two things fine, but the lattter thing was not fine. 4 turnovers. If you're not turning it over like that, you're maybe up 7 or 14-0 early in the game and it's a different game.
Don''t over-analyze it. I think the approach in the first 2 games with no fumbles, is the right idea. TB's game was a good one. Good front 7 just like Detroit's. Very good. All 1st rd picks. Bowers, Clayborn, MccCoy. Nice players up the back like Barron and Goldson.
That's how you do it. It keeps the LBs back and it makes the front 4 responsible for both the run and the pass, not just the pass.
I think last night was a case of no real scheme or approach against Suh and their nice front 7. Plus, Detroit was more geared
Translation: Their front 4 is superior to our O Line unless we are dictating with some kind of a scheme that offsets what they do best.
Sometimes you don't have it and get outworked. That's what that was. Better it happen now than in the regular season.
But, talking about why we lost in recent games in the postseason? Being finesse by choice and thinking Brady's arm is all we needed. It ain't.
funny how this is so easy for you to figure out but the "greatest" coach of all time can't seem to for 6 years running now...very strange
I think he figured it out just fine in 2011. Did you send your thank you cards to Brady and Welker for you to win that SB?
That was the best coaching job arguably of his career, off the lockout, not to mention key strategic FA signings like Waters, Anderson and Carter.
13 points allowed by a flawed D in that SB would have gone down as the best display of coaching up young players on D since the 2000 Ravens, a lethal veteran D, whom allowed 7 points.
Face it, you're wrong. He won coach of the year in 2010 and could basically win it every year considering the consistency and the quality of coaching year in and year out.
The fact this is the cap era, it's absolutely stunning. Meanwhile your coach misses the playoffs every other year and still hasn't removed the horseshoe from his rectum.
