Defense never gets the credit.  Its always man did the offense play bad.  No, Carl, the defense had a brilliant game plan that was executed well which made the offense look like dog doodoo.

Both Defenses were beyond outstanding. The difference...McScrewIndy scrapped his game plan and went heavy with no pulling in the second half while McLost kept staring at his play call sheet looking for his DTDW package.  :D

Speaking of DTDW. I wonder of we will see more of it in college with the success of BYU(I think that is who it was?) using it in goal line situations?

I disagree a little bit, the Rams spread out a bit.  They usually love their tight formations.  But Goff was so confused by the coverage, and blitzes... He took one of the worst sacks ever when he could have thrown it away.  The Patriots game plan for that game belongs in the Hall of Fame it was that good.

The more it gets used, the more the defense will be prepared for it.  Like the wild cat in the NFL.  It is not used with near the success that Miami did when they first used it.

No, no. 

It was all Brady.  A band wagon homer just explained to me that Belichick only wins because of Brady. 

I suggested that Belichick would have won a bunch of championships with a number of great QBs: Montana, Marino, Manning...

He laughed at me.  It was all Brady.

Didn't you know that coaching only matters when you lose?

That drop in the back of the end zone was on Goff.  He saw Cooks way too late.  He should be catching that ball at the 2 yard line in stride for an easy TD.

Goff was off target the whole game.  What's "open" in the NFL is what's "covered" in HS.  The whole game, Goff was throwing passes late or a foot or two low or behind his receivers.

The Patriots were disguising stuff pretty well.  They'd show something, let Goff and McVay make a call to attack that, then switch the defense up with under 15 seconds on the play clock to take away the very things they were baiting the Rams into attacking in the first place.

Is it me or right before halftime with 2 to's and the pats on there own 2. Dont you make them try to run a play out of the endzone by using the 2 timeouts essentially on 3rd down they would have to run a play?

I don't know why they didn't use both of those time outs there.  Especially with Suh and Donald.

Yeah.  That's why they won 10 games with Matt Cassell, the guy who wasn't good enough to start at USC, the year Brady blew out his knee and missed the whole season.

Belichick had good Browns teams with Vinnie Testaverde starting for him after he'd went bust in Tampa.  The Browns.  Vinnie Testaverde as the starting QB.  And Belichick won there.  Put that together...

I was a very early adopter of "Brady is a HOF'er", I was saying he had a good shot after winning #2, when he was still really more of a game manager and they were winning more with their D.

And yet I'm not even dumb enough to think it was all Brady.  Did BB need a VERY good QB to win titles?  Of course.  But did it "have" to be Brady?  Uh, no.  BB would have won multiple rings with any of a number of QB's.  I think the coaching is what makes the difference in the long run.

Put Brady with Indy or with Payton in NO, and he has one ring, just like Brees and Manning got there.  Put Brees or Manning in NE, and I bet they have a bunch of rings too.

BB is the difference.
