So, basically, anyone playing against the Patriots is screwed. The only answer for their offense of 5-yard crossing patterns (with illegal picks left and right) is to intimidate either the QB or the receivers moving through the middle.
I don't think it's a coincidence that the Patriots started putting up 35 points a game just about right after the week of fines.
IMO, just tell the defenders to go low. Real low. After a blown ACL or two, you get the same swivel headed, alligator armed effect.
1. Activate Worilds.
2. Have him go for the late hit on Brady. Ejected? Suspended for the playoffs? WTF-ever, instant hero, worth it. Still have the starter OLBs for the SB.
I'm telling ya, we need an exterminator. Worilds was drafted as a pass rusher. So if he gets there a little late... maybe the crowd noise blocked him from hearing the whistle...
