New England's Offense

Postby Cowboys 4 life » Sat Nov 24, 2007 2:00 am

They are cheating! Just kidding.

As I watched the Hawaii game tonight I was reminded of an old offense that has since been done away with in the NFL. The Run and Shoot. I looked up what it entails and it seems to fit the offense Belicheck is using. The only thing I see that is different is it seems the WR's have a set route to run on a given play instead of the flexibility to adjust their route based on the defense. This would actually lessen the confusion in this offense.

I love watching Hawaii, June Junes always has an exciting offense. Nice win over Boise last night, should move them up a bit. One more win over Washington and they might actually get a big bowl game. It would be nice for the nation to be able to see Colt Brennan air it out, not just the west coast.

Doesn't really address your point, but I do like Hawaii! :-b

Im not sure what N.E. is doing but its unbelievable i know that. I think most of it has to do with the fact that they have

1. Great O line
2. R Moss
3. Brady
4. R Moss
5. Welker, Watson, and Moss
6. Brady

You got it in the correct order.
Brady has more time to find the open guy than anyone. The line has been incredible, with the exception of the first half of the Indy game.

^ You are right that Brady does have a very good O-Line, but he also knows how to move in the pocket and avoid the sack. If you put a statue, say Drew Bledsoe, behind that same line there would be more sacks. The O-line makes Brady look good, but Brady also makes the O-Line look good.

football games are won and lost at the line of scrimmage. Those fat guys up front are the key.
Bottom line is that Brady has time to let Moss troddle down the field, get open, and make his circus like catches. The other key is that Welker cuts through the middle, takes a beating, but gives Brady the short stuff.

Dallas's fat guys are also very good, giving Romo time to find TO, after he breaks off coverage.
