Thanks, Doug!

That has a hell of a lot to do with situational play calling - thank you Doug!

*How the hell is Matt Stafford 3rd?!

Another question might be, why wasn't Tom Brady on the list?

I worry that a good part of that genius left with the departed assistant coaches. It's going to be difficult to continue be creative in play design, at least at last year's level.

I better get another dog.

My first thought was because Brady doesn't get put in a lot of 3rd and longs - while that wouldn't affect the conversion percentage, it would affect passer rating because of yards. I also imagine NE doesn't have a whole lot of 3rd and longs in the red zone, and passing TD's would further inflate passer rating. On top of that, a good amount of NE's 3rd down play calling may be to simply set up their inevitable 4th down attempt.

It would also explain why Alex Smith's dink-and-dunk 'watching paint dry' QB play isn't on the list either, despite having the highest overall passer rating last year.

Not that I'm complaining.

All personnel turnover provides fans with a glimpse of a person's true value. Since we won a ring finally, we can relax as we observe this year's play calling.

Welp, I'm back in Kumbaya territory! What a time to be a Birds fan!

I'm currently reading this at work, with a couple of Cowboys fans in conversation behind me about how they are being undervalued, and are sure to make the playoffs this year. The WR they drafted (in round 5?) is their savior, and they don't need Sean Lee anymore because of their new rookie.

To quote an old commercial:

"Fellas, it just doesn't get any better'n this."

Just for good measure, give them the David Akers line about the draft picks not being alive last time they were in the SB. That will warm up the crowd!

I'm actually enjoying taking the quiet confident role. Very Ip Man-esque. Makes me feel superior.
