The list goes on and on.
We didn't outsmart anything. In fact, it was the height of simplicity. We had a Pro Bowl player and we used him. I don't think New England burns a lot of calories worrying about why the rest of the league doesn't focus their passing offense on two tight ends and a 5'9" slot WR.
