In the "believe it or not" department we have the 2011 Pats secondary. Backups, castoffs and assorted wide receivers getting torched by well...castoffs back ups and assorted QB's we really hadn't heard of til midseason. Why this madness? Why not a secondary made up of well...guys who play secondary?
Screw it...let's go with coach's plan, we use guys who used to play different positions in our secondary...Now...how come our DB's play so soft? 2001...The greatest show on turf gets the living spit kicked out of them one receiver at a time. Remember when? So so sprints off the line and scrimmage and gets creamed by...Troy Brown...? I guess we have a pattern here.
Why don't the 2011 DB's hit their guys? Why don't they play them tight? Why don't they like...interrupt the pass routes by the opposing receivers so that they don't keep giving up effing completions!? I thought that was the object...right? Smack'em around a bit...once in a while? A chuck here or there?
I have the answer...if I'm right, it will all make sense eventually.
Belichick is playing off the opposing receivers INTENTIONALLY. It's all a set up for the play offs. He is in the process of generation 16 GAMES of film playing soft zones and other girly stuff just to F with Ravens, the Steelers and the Pack. You know? Possum. He's laying back and when the AFC championship game comes along Hedibo (do I need to know how to spell his name?..He's never gonna get cut?...ever? Your'e kidding me right? They have gone through 23 defensive backs since the lockout and Ahedibo is gonna make it? Right. ) and Moore and Sterling and the former QB who holds the record for most yards at Kent State who now plays what? DB that's what! The kid from Hofstra? That A10 powerhouse? Leads the league in pix? Thank God we got Underwood defending passes..even though he's never done it before. No bad DB habits to be found with this Underwood guy.Old defensive systems ain't cloggin up his mind now are they? Clean slate. fresh as an effing daisy.
No, it's all a trick. These DB's are gonna turn into a wrecking crew in the playoffs. Curtis painter is going to be home watching the Pats play the Pack in the Super bowl and he's gonna say this.."What?! Me and that other back up/cast off/loser guy I play with burnt these suckers during the regular season...what happened? They have turned into freakin' animals! That Hegibo guy just destroyed Jennings on that crossing rout! We ate him alive! It must be Belichick playin' possum agin."
