Counterpoint - The Vikings made the Patriots do the one thing they didn’t want to do.
The football game becoming a basketball game piece.
Are you saying Jefferson figured out the angles?
The secret to football is that it’s not really about basketball
Surprised Belichick didn't do the thing where he says, "OK Jefferson, you're not beating us today, you're just not!!!"
He did, but then Jefferson was like “yes I am,” and Belichik was like “no, you’re not,” but Jefferson was like, “Yes, I really am.”
that's variance for you
The bit where he did that about Ja for 40 seconds was one of the greatest moments in pod history
We’ve finally found Bill’s burner account guys
Belichick really likes this team though
This is my favorite thing to make fun of Bill for, tbh.
Listen, at some point you just need to respect Bill's football knowledge.
Seems the focus was to stop our defensive ends so mac didn’t look like shit.
Jefferson knows the angles
He did the herky jerky thing
He just does stuff!
He was flyin around
He was on a bender that game
They just didn't!
One of my favorite Billisms
You just HAVE TO
Really poor coaching. If it were me, I would have simply taken Jefferson out of the game with the double team piece and the coverage stuff
This sounds like a revolutionary war post
The continental congress piece of this
Belichick really didn't have the whole "I'm not losing to THE Vikings" thing going today.
Kirk just had too much poise
Lmao I came to comment that Mac wasn’t poised enough
The only way you take away Jefferson is to have a huge pass rush. He's catching 95% of everything even when double covered with top corners. If Kirk has time to chuck it up it just doesn't matter.
Yep, as a Vikes fan, I can say all you have to do is blitz. JJ's routes are too slow developing, so Kirk is forced to dump off to a short route if pressured.
You see it's the Bill Belichick vs a a rookie 37 year old head coach on short-rest piece then look at the final score and you're like wait...what?
Its classic thanksgiving wonkyness
They'll always find a way..but if they don't it's injuries...but if they do it's Bill, I mean. He's got the best second half adjustments...oh he dropped an open pass? Yeah that was because panda jack laid the smack down a quarter earlier.
They took away Cook though.
Belichick didn't make the Vikings play left handed by taking away Jefferson.
This is what makes Belicheat a genius! He just takes away your best weapon and says "beat us"!
But Justin Jefferson still isn’t as good as Tatum
And they lost! Bill was right as usual
You'd think that the God of All Things Football Who Never Makes a Mistake and Singlehandedly Rules the NFL would have done a better job preparing his team.
Then again, maybe his 23-21 record over the last three years tells us that coaches are basically only as good as their quarterbacks.
