With 1 word, Patriots’ no-huddle an NFL marvel

+

I thought this was a pretty good read about the Patriots offense and how they run it. I also know there's a lot of Chip Kelly fans around here so I thought I'd post it. It talks about the Patriots' system that was influenced by Oregon's offense. Also, I know there are some that are still a little confused about why Berry has been playing so close to the line of scrimmage in Dime formations. That is addressed a little here also. Great read for anyone who loves reading about X's & O's. "I think one of the biggest differences [between old-school no-huddle and what the Patriots are running today] is just the versatility of the players," Brady said. "How teams try to defend no-huddle is that you have big safeties that are like linebackers. And linebackers are like small safeties that can cover. Then you have big tight ends that can run routes but also run block. And then you have fullbacks that can make a bunch of plays down the field, so it’s not like back then, it was like these two guys only do this. This guy, your fullback, only isolates on the middle linebackers and runs diagonals to the flat."
