A lot of great Pats fans at the Skins game. Unfortunately listening to Fan radio on the way home about the the knuckleheads who wore Pats jerseys to a bar to watch the game then ordered buttery nipples made me want to hurl.
But I digress, I watched Derrick Burgess almost every snap he played and he's got amazing speed coming from the edge. If the D accounted for him he didn't have any tricks to get around the big defenders. If they didn't, Campbell was in trouble. I didn't see them run towards him and was somewhat surprised they didn't.
Realizing this was only a vanilla D preseason game, it still made me wonder if this defense should and could stunt? The Pats have had a lot of trouble in the past with teams that stunt and Brady's current shoulder is the result of one.
I can't remember if BB has ever used stunts in past years? This 4-3 is intriguing
and with Burgess and Tully maybe it's time to get more creative?

You mean if the O accounted for him, Burgess didn't have any tricks to get around big offensive linemen?
