If The Patriots plan to win this super bowl game I would suggest a real long practice involving the fundamentals of tackling.
But I would go one step further an handicap the defenders in practice and place someone really big as the man to stop. Memories of large running backs pushing for first downs on third downs by these Giants are by far the most impressive weapons the Giants could bring out at the super bowl against the Patriots. If it were me I would be focusing on leg wrap tackling in most situations. I cringe when I remember Brandon Jacobs running with three guys hanging to his shoulders while moving steadily down the field.
Oh yea, The spread offense. Not that it is not a threat but if we remember way back when the coaching staff for the Indianapolis Colts lobbied for restrictions against the blocking of receivers in the NFL , Then we can also remember why Ty Law and Lawyer Milloy never skipped a beat and continued their impressive defending abilities while they beat teams like the Colts and went on to win three super bowls. I myself believe that a time consuming jam at the line of scrimmage and for five yards past is in the rules to create defending opportunity and counter the Patriot rule, Some called the rule of not hitting the receivers after five yards out ,The Patriot rule, Mostly because our defenders were known for blocking receiver's well into there routes as the rules before had allowed.
It was rumored Mr Bill Polian lobbied for better rules to allow more points for more exciting games in the NFL. Seemed like the same time, Oddly enough Tome Brady took over as quarterback for the New England Patriots and started making full use of the new Patriot rule that was to allow higher scoring games.
I would say two keys for the Patriots to win are jamming receivers at the line of scrimmage, And get the legs wrapped.
Of course smart football and clockmanagement, Meaning no hurryup until a hurryup for clock is needed. Running will loosen the coverage.
