The Spread Offense vs The Cover 2
After watching the game last night I noticed that the Pats offense is unique to the NFL and looks difficult to stop.
I feel that the Cover 2 has a great shot at slowing down the dink and dunk passing attack.
-Tom Brady feasted on the blitz when the small throws became huge gains in one on one situations.
The Bears do not blitz and with the exception of the first half on Sunday they have tackled well and gang tackled.
-The Jets LB core got turned around and on half of the completions were facing away from Brady when the ball was completed.
The Bears LBs have played really well and they are always facing the line of scrimmage.
-The Patriots want to throw it 6-7 yards from the line of scrimmage and do not really have a deep threat.
The Bears in their Cover 2 have 5 guys standing in the 6-7 yards from scrimmage, which will hopefully cloud the throwing lanes.
I think that our defense has a real shot to slow down the Patriots.
