Blueprints and other BS

Posted on: January 21, 2008 7:53 pm
Every time a team comes close to the Patriots, whether its for a half, a quarter, or the whole game, all we hear about is how its a blueprint to beat the Patriots. Teams have come close, but no one has succeeded yet, and for it to be a "successful blueprint" doesn't it have to be successful? The thing is, the blueprint I keep hearing is pretty much play amazing on both sides of the ball, get really lucky, and you might have a chance. I have seen have some success against the Patriots, but they have pulled each game out by the end.

The problem with the idea of a "blueprint" is I don't think I have seen anything work against the Patriots in multiple games this year. A few running backs have had decent games, but when they gear up to stop the run, it hasn't worked. They see this "blueprint" that has been "exposed," even in games that no one else does, and they work to correct it. Bill Belichick is a great coach, and he sees every problem to work on in practice, to make sure it isn't a problem anymore.

This team is good enough that they can play poorly in the AFC Championship game and still win. I'm willing to bet the Patriots team that ran over most of the league shows up in Arizona. Who's willing to bet against me?
