Trend isn't monstrous, but, it is noticeable.
Brady is aging, but is that why?
The NFL has turned into Kaepernick country?
Big strong, fast running QB's acting like Vince Young against USC?
Defensive trending (boy, that sounds important) is going towards "smaller faster." Nose tackles are intercepting passes and getting "yards after catch"...thanks Vinnie!
The world is changing....so William Belichick starts to run more. He has already made a staple of dropping eight guys on every defensive play..."go ahead and throw..."
Guess what? the rest of the league is acting like Belichick, out of necessity....which leads to the title of this post.
"Ok, Brady's is in the gun!...drop eight guys!"
"Oh no! He handeded it to Blount!"
Hard to stay home when Tom Terrific is pitching....trouble is, if you don't stay home and the big guy gets the ball? Uh oh....
