Interesting read on the Bills. I have to say I respect how they’re going about things to come after us. There’s no secret to what works best against the Pats. GET PRESSURE WITH FOUR. Not all teams can do that, but those who can, or are for that particular game when the o-line was off, can stifle Brady and the offense.
The Pats are well aware of this as well, and if one of the young running backs can become a deadly weapon it will certainly help take some of the pressure off of Brady.
There’s no question with Brandon Lloyd in the mix the Patriots will present challenges all over the field for the defenses they face, in a way they never have before.
“The Patriots are the team we’re all chasing,” Wannstedt said. “That’s obvious. With the philosophy that we’re going to use, I see the whole blitz-zone, the zone-dog stuff, and I don’t know how many quarterbacks are getting fooled anymore. I’m watching tape, and I’m not so sure the way to go isn’t being able to make the quarterback get the ball out of his hands quick and put steady pressure on him. “The great ones aren’t going to take sacks, and that gives you an ability to do things coverage wise. I remember sitting there watching the Super Bowl, and I’m watching the Giants. I don’t know how many times they sacked Brady, but I do know the ball was coming out fast.”
