FOXBOROUGH — Just one word can be powerful.

Saying, “Help,” lets someone know a person needs assistance.

“Sorry,” can immediately heal some wounds.

“Stop,” could save someone from harm.



Yes, just one word can be potent.

The same holds true for football and the Patriots.


Tremendous Insight

I generally don't like Bedard, but this is one of his best efforts in recent memory - though the lede is pretty cheesy.

I think this style of offense is going to be key against the Seahawks next week. They need to get Red Bryant off the field in favor of Irvin and no-huddle run it down the Seahawks' throats as fast as possible.

Pretty good read. I was curious about the Belichick/Kelly connection. You see a lot of New England sports related pictures in the Oregon play calling thing. I hear Kelly is pretty fond of the Celtics as well.

I wonder how effective this can be week to week. Some of the calls from Sunday's game could be heard on TV, so it wouldn't be too hard for Seattle to match up words with specific plays. I wonder if they just switch out new words week to week or use the same group of words and just change what plays they represent.

It's also great to see BB's relationship with all these college coaches. It must make draft prep so much easier when you're on such good terms with all these guys.
