    The Patriots’ defensive game plan for Super Bowl XLVI became pretty clear from the get-go: They weren’t going to let Giants receiver Victor Cruz beat them.

    Using a variety of double-teaming concepts in the slot and outside, New England executed its strategy, holding Cruz to 25 yards on four receptions.

    So Mario Manningham and Hakeem Nicks stepped up.

    The moral to the story IMO is Jerry needs to find a way to get Laurent Robinson back here next season. Cant shut down all three of em.

    Sure you can shut all three down, when the QB has no time to throw behind this oline.
