so in other words, lebeau just decided to play to his players strengths and let them decide the game as opposed to out scheming, and tricking the opponent with exotic blitzes and x's and o's he drew up on a chalkboard.
you mean he just stepped aside and let his players decide the game with some gool ol fashioned, conventional, physical football?
damn, imagine how good our offense would be if mad scientist bruce could give that a try.
