    Did anyone notice that at age 43 on the 1 1/2 yard line, Brady lined up under center and sneaked it in for the final touchdown? Also, earlier in the game he had a quarterback sneak with 4th and less than a yard in his own territory.
    I know this is not "who we are", but I would rather be a WINNER than "who we are."

    Ehh, we would’ve scored on that final 1.5 yards, too.



    Of course, we would’ve used 4 downs to get it. But, hey, look at all the clock we could run off.

    Brady=Intelligent

    Helton+Harrell=Hubris before their fall.

    If you look at the 4 remaining teams left in the playoffs, they all have good Oline. It all starts with the OLine. Jimmy Johnson understood that and his Oline was a dynasty. Helton still has not figured that out.
    Fight On!

    I don't know of any NFL team that refuses to line up under center in short yardage. Doing so puts immediate pressure on the guys across from the center.

    Not only the QB sneak but the Bucs came out with an unbalanced line to the right side and he sneaked into a weakside gap because of the DL shift to the power side. Simple read created by a shift and over compensation by the D. Smart coaches give players an edge.

    Not sure why SC doesn’t use the QB sneak. They used it quite often and successfully with Cody. I can’t remember once when he was not successful at getting that little bit of real estate.

    Same kind of SMART, PURPOSEFUL coaching done by Andy Reid to seal the game on 4th-and-1 for the Chiefs.

    OLine stayed relaxed and upright, faking the defensive line into thinking the Chiefs were just trying to get an offsides penalty on the Browns. Fastest guy, Tyreek Hill one-on-one, with 2 other WRs running interference.....easy inside-out pass pattern for the 1st down.

    Gosh. I wonder if such a complex read could be taught by the USC coaches to the QB and OL?

    Did anyone else notice the play of the Bucs center? That guys is NASTY! He had an amazing game. Talk about a guy who plays through the whistle. It was fun watching the Saints defenders crying to the officials all night about how rough he was treating them.

    Yup saw that, never thought I would see that at the Pro level. That looked like a high school video made for college recruiters. If only we could see that again at USC, well I guess not with Helton at the helm!
    Fight On!

    1st down: Penalty--lineman moves
    2nd down: Carr (not Steppe) tackled for a 2 yd loss
    3rd down: incomplete pass (Slovis hurried)
    4th down: FG
