Default Beating NE in the playoffs

I'm watching Brady do to the Jets what he did to us. And if everything plays out there is a good chance we will see NE again in the playoffs. We need to plan now.

NE plays a spread offense when they play us. They use two athletic TEs and a scat back in Woodhead and Wes Welker to run their offense. They know that in general there will be lots of pressure when they play the Steelers so Brady rarely holds the ball long. This is how they avoid sacks and pressure on the QB is useless if the offensive game plan is to get rid of the ball really quick. The TEs give Brady a large target and the quick WRs who are very smart and read the blitz on their own give Brady at least one open receiver on a blitz. That's a hard opponent to beat and the Jets are realizing it tonight.

Here are some adjustmentz that I would make.

1. We need to go athletic - especially to be able to run and cover the two TEs. I would take out Casey Hampton and play 5 LBs with Larry Foote as a starter. I would take this gamble and dare NE to run and hope that our athletic LBs can make the tackles.

2. Brady needs to be hit. Even if it's a late hit, and costs us 15 yards, we need him to know that football is a physical game.

3. We need to shorten the game. Somehow, we need the offense to be successful running the ball and keep the clock running.

4. We need new blitzes. If we don't blitz, we're toast. We need LeBeau to create new blitzes. I was thinking that uneven blitzes where we send three guys in on one side would be an idea.

5. Everone in the secondary need to have identical hair styles like polamalu.

Any other constructive thought are welcome

I heard Lee Harvey Oswald is really still alive working under Government cover up. I say we hire him. I'm sure we can get somebody in a suite to by a ticket for him when the time comes, then he'll do the rest.

Boom...boomboom on Brady. DONE. Steelers win 69-3!

I think people are looking a little too much into that earlier Pats/Steelers game. Every team once in a while simply has a TERRIBLE game.. Jets had it tonight, Pats had it in the playoffs last season against Baltimore, we had it a month ago against NE. If it wasn't for a few drops in the endzone it might've been a different story too.

Coming into tonight's game, the pats had the WORST defense in terms of yardage allowed in the NFL. Ben is our greatest asset if there was a rematch in the playoffs. He needs to light those guys up and put up points. If the offense comes through, the defense just needs to make a few stops and we come away with the W.

you wouldnt make any offensive adjustments?

scoring some points before you are down by 4 td's would help.

Maybe we could get a package deal and get rid of a couple of other assholes. We all know who would be next after Brady.

Larry Foote couldn't cover my grandmother and Farrior isn't much better.

They remind me of the Colts in '05. No one thought we could beat them in the postseason either.

im so sick of hearing this. it makes steelerfans sound ignorant.

who hasnt farrior beena ble to cover this season.

you know he is an ILB and not a CB, right?

how come the ravens didnt match him up on ray rice all night and burn us if he is so ineffective and he is so exploitable?

see anyone run on him lately?



seriously... some specific examples would be greatly appreciated, so i can see the light.
