    What are the chances we could get something like that out of BA? BA and genius have never been used in the same sentence I am afraid to say.
    I don't believe lining up Hernandez in the back field was a revolutionary idea. Also doesn't sound like pure genius. The real problem for the Bronco defense was they didn't have anyone that could match up with Gronkowski. They also didn't get much pressure on Brady. It's difficult to get pressure on Brady when he is on his game.

    What are the chances that Ben can play more like Brady on a consistent basis? If that ever happens, we will see more consistent scoring offense.

    You don't think lining your TE up at HB, and actually using him to run the ball is revolutionary? It's at the very least uber-creative. And he gashed for about 65-70 yds doing that. The thing that makes it so genius, is that they set that up all season by using the same alignment, but instead of handing off to him, they were sending him on patterns out the backfield annd throwing it to him, creating out-of-the-backfield matchups that are completely different than the conventional RB out the backfield. Their defense didn't know what to do with that. I would say that's quite revolutionary and innovative.

    BA would use him as a blocking FB.

    And as long as BA is calling the shots, Ben and this offense will continue to struggle to score points consistently.

    Again, it's all about execution...

    The Browns ran a similar play earlier this year that failed miserably...

    I'll take your word for that, but did Cleveland spend 16 games setting that play up, by passing from that set everytime during the season, and then throwing a complete curve ball, and actually handing it off to him? Because if they didn't do that, then it's moot point. A simple play that went bad. The Broncos had seen that play on tape maybe a dozen or so times the Pats ran that play over the course of the season. They were setting somebody up. The Broncos had no reason to think the Pats would hand off there. Yeah, it's about execution, but it's also about gameplanning, scheme and playcalling. It's a hell of a lot easier to execute when you keep the D on it 's heels and guessing.

    I'm not saying it wasn't smart...

    I'm saying that handing the ball off to someone who rarely, if ever, carries the ball in a live game is a risk...it's doubly risky in critical situations like playoff games...

    But, when executed perfectly, it looks like a genius move...

    Well, when it's implemented by a genius, it tends to work out that way more times than not. And there is certainly a large contingent of people who consider Belichick a genius. And if you disagree, you can't dispute that at the very least, in comparison to Arians, he's Albert Einstein.

    definitely smart but not genius at all....

    Pats* aren't known for their running game so it caught Denver off guard.

    Hernandez did bobble that QB exchange...he was lucky to pull that back in.

    That's exactly what happened to the Browns...it was a fumble that the opponent recovered...
