Interesting. I thought they did too much blitzing and not enough covering in the 2nd half. Felt like they were constantly bringing 5 or 6, but it's kinda tough to get to the QB when he's taking 3 step drops and unloading.
That's kinda what I thought too. I think that we telegraphed our defensive gameplan. Everyone was saying that the Eagles and Ravens found the blueprint to beat the Pats by blitzing the hell out of Brady. Well, we tried that in the first half, they knew we were going to do it, and they gameplanned to beat our blitzes.
I thought we should have dropped more into coverage in the first half, then brought the blitz a ton in the second half. Their coaches and players knew what we were going to do and used it against us.
Also, Troy P would've made a big difference in this game.
