    Pats Pass D against the Colts.

    From the posts i've seen you all again are in the World is falling down concerning the Pass D's performance at the end of last weeks game. I really wish you would all buy Tivo or some DVR system to watch and record your game.
     
    If you did you would have noticed, Bill was playing Training Camp with the secondary, mixing and matching and tossing in non DB's into DB rolls. So please hold onto your hats. What you saw in the first 3 quarters is what you will get in a "Real" game not a game against an inept colts team in the 4th quarter.

    I agree completely, this defense is obviously designed for opposing QB's to have large windows to throw through/in. Also Bill likes to experiment with defenses that allow the QB to feel real comfy in the pocket so that they can build a false sense of security.Why? So he can sneak up on them in the playoffs and yell...surprise!!

    Think about it, when defensive coordinators watch film on us they will be so flabbergasted with confusion that they won't know what to do. They won't know what they're watching - is that a defensive back they signed off the street a week ago? Or is that a guy that can't play wide receiver playing safety? Is that a special teams guy? Was that the guy that played better than Revis as a rookie?

    The possibilities are truly endless...

    Well, that's what we are hoping anyway.

    But let's be real, BB didn't expect the colts to come back w/ 3 TDs. Seeing how we've blown some big leads in the past 2-3 years, he left a very small chance that the Colts would tie the game had they recovered the onside kick at the end of the game.

    So, was BB being smart or close to being outright stupid? He was definitely toeing the line.

    He got some players some experience; which is fine. Here's food for thought though - why not "practice" being more aggressive and establishing a "killer instinct".  It was the perfect game to do it. BB, for whatever reason, didn't take advantage of the opportunity to be aggressive at "game speed".

    The Pats were cruising leading 31-3 when they let off the throttle. Now, you may not like it or I may not like it and I'm sure Belichick didn't like it but in the grand scheme of things, this one game (we did win didn't we?) won't be remembered (except by underdogg) and this one game ultimately will not negatively affect what happens in the playoffs.

    Why not practice being more aggressive or to have a killer instinct? Dude you serious? You wouldn't train for a marathon by sprinting as fast as you can. If you're practicing your golf swing, do you just hammer away? Of course not!! This is the hidden secret story of our D. Yeah they may look like they can't cover, pressure, or play with an itntimidation factor and yeah we are dead last in many things, but this is all part of some larger grand scheme that only few can truly fathom...

    Here let me explain...At first glance it appears that along our defensive line we have a very good nose tackle and a solid undersized defensive end, but there's is such more to it! Take Kyle Love for example, it may look like he's getting turned and driven out of plays, but really that's on purpose. If an offensive tackle gets his hands on him and drives him 7 feet out of the play, what really happens? You guessed it! Opposing defensive coordinators won't be able to actually see him - thus they won't know how to prepare for him during the playoffs...

    And take our linebacking core, we have Mayo who they hide very well...until he made that interception - that was our only mistake - that he made a play and now they'll be prepared to scheme against it. All the other guys they have playing linebacker are doing great though, they never make any plays.

    Our Secondary really is the shining light of our team. Generally they are so far away from the ball on every play that defensive coordinators will never get a feel for what we're doing come playoff time.

    It takes some time to figure this defensive strategy that we employ out, but once you really get the jist of it, it's easy to understand how our defense will once again carry this offense through the playoffs.

    Digger makes a good point. 

    remember last year when the pats throttled the jets, bears, bills, and dolphins in december only to go out flat in the playoffs, or when they did that the year before vs. the Jags only to have the same result in the playoffs. 

    With belichick purposefully putting his d in bad positions so that opponents can score, he's effectively eliminating the "overconfidence" angle before this year's playoffs. 

    I smell playoff win this year for the pats based on this brilliant strategy.

    Played great up to 31-3. Terrible in garbage time, but the offense stunk it up too in the 4th Q

    Are you enjoying the Colts' season?  Despite all the grumbling, New England fans are enjoying the Patriots'.  We especially loved watching Tom Brady show Peyton Manning how to play quarterback last Sunday.

    Rusty said the pats o was experimenting in the 4th Q.  I think he meant running the ball.  He didn't elaborate.

    they were just protecting guys from senseless injuries. they would not do that normally, but this year, injuries have eaten into their depth.
