"Horton has shared with the Doug & Wolf Show on Arizona Sports 620 that the Pats and Belichick had a tell in Week Two. Before tight end Aaron Hernandez was injured, the Patriots ran the ball whenever Hernandez lined up tight to the offensive line. After Hernandez was injured, it became more simple — the Pats ran the ball whenever quarterback Tom Brady lined up under center, and they passed the ball whenever Brady lined up in shotgun formation."Wow, Ray Horton is a friggin genius, huh? This brainiac just cracked the Patriots offense? Cmon, this dude is so full of shit. And the stats dont even back up what he's saying.
When the Patriots lined up in the shotgun, they threw the ball 38 times and ran 9 times. When Brady lined up under center, the Patriots ran 20 times and passed 13 times.
Those arent exactly lopsided numbers. Not enough to warrant a "tell." When I first heard this, I laughed my balls off. He actually thinks people are going to believe that the Patriots offense is as easy to crack as a Pop Warner team. Thats is some funny shit.
