View Full Version : Things aren't always as they appear (for all the Fewell bashers)

Watching nfl replay and when the Pats scored right before the half and a lot of people on these boards roasted Fewell for only rushing 3 well......
when the defense came off the field Fewell went right up to JPP and said, you got to keep rushing the qb i got enough guys in coverage

The point is he concerns his formations and strategies from the back end. It's a perfectly valid way of running a defense. But it's not the Big Blue Wrecking Crew way. I think he'd be fantastic on any number of other teams. I just want spags back (too bad the saints snatched him up)...

When we were able to stop the Patriots offense it wasn't because of our vaunted pass rush. Our secondary stepped up and made things hard on Brady.

Not too many teams do that against elite quarterbacks, and that had certainly been a weakness of ours for many years. I don't know how Fewell did it, but somehow he did.
