If you watched the highlight video of the Patriots-Chargers 2006 AFCDC these pictures will show you a little of what it was like to attend as a Patriots fan. Good times. Good times indeed.
Behold the greatest non-Steeler road playoff win of the Patriots dynasty. I was actually at this game, sitting about 14 rows behind the Patriots bench. After it was over the Patriots fans partied long and hard in the stadium while the Chargers fans fought eachother outside. It remains my greatest live fan experience, with the 2009 opener (Brady’s greatest career comeback) as a close second. Nothing can beat attending a road playoff upset win.
Tom Brady is the best by far. It’s not even close. Drew Brees has got to be right there. Tony Romo’s a good player. I’ll take Philip Rivers there. And Peyton, he’s right there. No order except for Tom being the best. He does things that other guys can’t do. His pocket presence is better than those guys by far. He throws a better ball than just about all those guys. He’s a winner – better than all those guys.
Sporting News picks the Jets to win the Super Bowl over the Cowboys. Ahh, this Pats fan is finding it nice to be back with the underdogs again.
Known for using a clever blend of coverage and pressures, Crennel’s system is deeply rooted in a “quarter-quarter-half” cover scheme that has the ability to suffocate offenses if executed properly.
The field is split into quarters with the strong corner (typically the left corner because most offenses tilt right) and the strong safety each responsible for covering a quarter of the field. On the weak-side, the boundary corner and free safety play a half-field coverage to create a double team on the split end (X-receiver). With the corner playing a “cloud” technique (corner is aligned three-to-five yards off the receiver forcing an inside release on all routes to ensure that the safety is able to stay on top of the receiver down the field) to disrupt the release of the receiver, the scheme can make it difficult for the quarterback to find open receivers.
