Pete's offense philosophy the whole time has been to avoid showing their plan through the entire first half of a game? Meaning let's just have our defense stand us up until we know we have to get it going and easy go put points on the board. Its crazy to think about and extremely risky. The teams that have allowed us to have dominat first halves are actually not very good defensively because they allowed us to score with a scripted beginning game scheme. And the teams who have made us look ridiculous in the first half are actually amazing on the defensive side of the ball. Bill's, rams, niners.
Nothing else explains why we can consistently hang in a game like we arent even playing and then turn around a drive the ball with intent to shove it down their throats and pull out the dub.
Also, we are going to the playoffs with a completely healthy group of tes, rbs, wrs and russ. Our defensive is communicating and playing better together.
I personally wouldnt be surprised if we come out and just start man-handling teams. We have been waiting this whole season knowing the team is capable of beat downs and it would be great to see it. Now is the perfect time. While these playoff teams think they have us down pat to the t...we expose them with fantastic, explosive offense and a controlling defense.
Because pete decided to not tip his hand.
Maybe just a conspiracy, but I think it would be brilliant.
Timing and scheming wise.
