You were reading my mind. TT thrived in that spread and our OLine enjoyed the hell out of it as well. There were games last year where you could SEE the OLine getting into a groove and start to wear down a D front (the second Miami game comes to mind) but Gailey got away from it. OLmen like nothing more than kicking ass in the running game and when they do it sucks the life out of a D. I hope Gailey will stick to it and let those guys establish themselves more each game.

Do I have ESPN? Yes. I just don't recall very many draw plays last year. Even less play action attempts. Just a lot of "exactly-what-you-would-expect-plays."
On the other hand, The Patriots used play action EXCESSIVELY. It seemed as if Brady would add a fake handoff to every play, just for the heck of it. They always kept Ds on edge, well, except the Giants D.
I didn't follow the Pats so much, but we used the Shotgun as a run formation a lot. Watch any game from last year, we were pulling guards, and running out of shotgun. And why would we use draws if no one was afraid that we WOULD pass.

Because you can have an amazing individual performance even within the confines of a team loss. This isn't a difficult concept to understand.

That's certainly true. OJ twice went over 200 yards in a game in 1976 and the Bills lost both games. Including his then NFL single game rushing record of 273 yards.

That was the only game with Levitre at center.

I also hope a healthy O-line with Glenn added in could be much more conducive to running the ball more and consitantly.
