MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — They are the drives where everything is tested.
Strength. Stamina. Toughness. Execution.
Greg, outstanding article, you describe the detail so well that I could easily visualize the movement of the O line and the backs on the various developments of the play. Football is much more enjoyable for the fans that have that kind of "coaches eye" for the game. You should write a "guide to basic football" that guys could use to facilitate the education of their wives, girlfriends and casual fans who are thirsty for more knowlege of the game.
On that final drive, Stevan Ridley proved he is truly the real deal. On a related note, where is the love for the Hooded One's recent draft classes? Ridley, Vereen, Bowden, Gronkowski, Hernandez, Solder, Jones, Hightower, Dennard, etc. etc... Since he showed Scott Pioli the door and took back the draft, I'd say the Patriots have done pretty well...
