2-8-NE 19 (6:12) (Run formation) T.Brady pass incomplete short right to B.Green-Ellis.Run Benny again. pick up 4 yards, get a more managable 3rd down
3-8-NE 19 (6:12) (Shotgun) T.Brady sacked at NE 15 for -4 yards (J.Tuck).Run Benny again, would they have ever expected this? No. Pretty sure they expected a shotgun which is why Brady was sacked
4-12-NE 15 (6:12) Z.Mesko punts 43 yards to NYG 42, Center-D.Aiken. W.Blackmon to NE 48 for 10 yards (M.Slater).
Enough Benny there for you? And how 'bout this (the next one)--interception was a problem, but Benny was hardly ignored:
1-10-NE 20 (:35) (Shotgun) T.Brady pass incomplete short right to A.Hernandez (M.Boley).Run Benny
2-10-NE 20 (:31) (Shotgun) T.Brady pass short left to D.Branch pushed ob at NE 31 for 11 yards (D.Grant). P15
1-10-NE 31 (:01) (Shotgun) B.Green-Ellis up the middle to NE 38 for 7 yards (R.Bernard).
(15:00) B.Green-Ellis left tackle to NE 43 for 5 yards (M.Boley). R16
(14:31) (No Huddle, Shotgun) T.Brady pass deep left intended for R.Gronkowski INTERCEPTED by C.Blackburn
[J.Pierre-Paul] at NYG 8. C.Blackburn to NYG 8 for no gain (R.Gronkowski).4 receivers went 20 yards down field we had a lead and needed to kill clock.It was this type of offensive mentality that lad to us losing another SB WHY DIDN"T WE RUN BENNY AGAIN? But play calling and offensive philosphy in general was nbot a problem? Sure man.
And finally this:
1-10-NE 8 (9:24) (Shotgun) T.Brady pass incomplete short middle to A.Hernandez [L.Joseph].Run Benny
2-10-NE 8 (9:19) (Shotgun) T.Brady pass short right to W.Welker to NE 13 for 5 yards (J.Williams).Run Benny
3-5-NE 13 (8:35) (Shotgun) T.Brady pass short right to D.Woodhead to NE 32 for 19 yards (D.Grant). P17
(7:48) B.Green-Ellis left end to NE 35 for 3 yards (J.Pierre-Paul). NYG-A.Rolle was injured during the play. His
return is Probable.
2-7-NE 35 (7:22) (Shotgun) W.Welker left end to NE 46 for 11 yards (K.Phillips). R18
1-10-NE 46 (6:36) D.Woodhead left tackle to NE 47 for 1 yard (J.Tuck).Run Benny
2-9-NE 47 (6:05) (Shotgun) T.Brady pass short right to R.Gronkowski to NYG 47 for 6 yards (P.Amukamara).Run Benny it was a completion but if not caught the clock stops AGAIN
3-3-NYG 47 (5:22) (Shotgun) T.Brady pass short left to A.Hernandez to NYG 43 for 4 yards (M.Boley). P193rd 3 Run it gasp
1-10-NYG 43 (4:40) (Run formation) B.Green-Ellis up the middle to NYG 44 for -1 yards (C.Canty).Here is a thought, pehaps if had used the power back more often this open book look would not have led to the Ginats stacking the line and Mankins getting blown up by Canty to give up a 1 yard loss. This has nothing to do with Benny's talent, this has to do with the predictability of the offense to this point, but I wouldn't wait for you to admit this is 100% true. Even though you know it is.
2-11-NYG 44 (4:06) (Shotgun) T.Brady pass incomplete deep left to W.Welker.Well lets see we are playing with the lead adn need to use clock to put pressure on NY's offense so how about a 4 wr spread draw play to Benny? I bet it catches the ginats off guard and we get at least 5-6 yards which leaves a more managable 3rd n 5 and keeps the clock going.
3-11-NYG 44 (4:00) T.Brady pass incomplete deep middle to D.Branch (C.Webster).
4-11-NYG 44 (3:53) Z.Mesko punts 32 yards to NYG 12, Center-D.Aiken, fair catch by W.Blackmon.
In order to use the run game more this play by play would have been different. You would have to rewrite history which is why I have not gone through play by play to show you beofre. It is a futile point, buit I did it to appease you anyway.
The Giants offense used the game plan that we should have and it ended up being just enough. They wored down the defense and our offense using little clock played rightr into the Giants game plan.
