I don’t think it’s uncommon. We’ve had those types of things in our offense before. This is a little bit different, but we’re not trying to reinvent the game or anything. We’re just trying to take advantage of a particular player’s skill, and that’s no different than something we would do with a tight end, or a receiver, or running back who has a skill set that we want to try to take advantage of.” After watching the Patriots use Tebow as a runnin

Tebow offense on the radar

The contrast in the New England Patriots' preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles was striking.

Bill Belichick on His Defense Against the Eagles

As Friday night’s game between the Eagles and Patriots progressed, I was noticing that the Patriots secondary looked the same as last season with not only a blown coverage over the top for a touchdown, but also just huge gaps in the secondary. The big play I’m talking about was, of course, the one from Michael Vick to DeSean Jackson who beat our number one corner Aqib Talib and...

Post-Kneegate reactions

Well, that was an ordeal. After around 2 hours of sheer, unbridled anxiety triggered by Patriot's fans equivalent of the Zapruder film, things have (for the time being) returned to semi-normalcy after multiple reports have come out that Golden Boy's knee is going to be just fine.

Robert Griffin III: Motivated Worker or Self-Centered Diva?

The Redskins regime under Head Coach Mike Shanahan on paper resembles Bill Belichick's Patriot system. Unfortunately, the organizational climate in Ashburn, VA is far from that of Foxboro, MA.
