So, as I'm lying awake last night trying to figure out what happened Monday, I come to a realization: we were flat out out-coached. Not just Monday night, but all of last week and all of the last several years. Let me explain. As much as I hate Belichick, there is no denying that he is a football genius. Here's why. He smart, but he's also ruthless. First the smart. If you are going down to Miami with a patchwork OL, you know you need an advantage. So what do you do? You run no-huddle and utterly gas the amped Miami defense. You play up-tempo, attacking with quick passes, subbing your players in and out with wild abandon. The Miami coaching staff has no answer. Without adequate pass rush, Brady is deadly and our rush wilted. Contrast Sparano. You get Reggie Bush, a very talented runner in open space. Do you use him like the Saints used Sproles on Thursday? Do you let him drift into the backfield or run crossing patterns that would keep the linebackers honest and maybe occupy a safety? Of course not. Instead, you run him up the gut -- run him up Wilfork's gut -- with minimal success. Worse, you do that knowing your OL is clearly a weak link. You cater to your own disadvantages rather than trying to create a mismatch. Now for the ruthless. If you are picking friends, you go Sparano -- no question. He is loyal to a fault and loves heart. But if you want to win a Superbowl, you go Belichick. The guy has no problem dumping stars just as they are beginning to wane. Even better, he turns them into future talent. The guy is a cold-hearted prick, but he's damn good at what he does. Whereas Sparano keeps players for because of their reps (e.g., Spittler), Belichick keeps talent. In sum, I'm sure none of this is new information, just needed to get it off my chest. I like Henne and I think we have a solid team. In my opinion, it's clear the absolute weakest link is the coaching staff. Maybe there are some bright spots there, but I would not shed a tear if Sparano got the axe. He's out-coached on a regular basis (think about our clock management in the last few years). That needs to stop.
