I can't wait to see Brady and BB whine as various Jets don't get up and draw injury stoppages during this game at key times. Obviously this won't happen under 2 minutes. But we are going to try and get in their head, and get the subs we need. DLs especially will be told to stay down, and not get up when they need a blow.
Pressure was the winning formula as Brady panicked and chucked the ball prematurely - with or without pressure, eventually.
Fear changed his QB psyche.
Inadequate pressure was mainly how we lost the last two.
Jets have no choice but to bring the heat or he'll pick us apart all day.
Brady will find somebody open every time and the longer we stay in coverage the greater the chance of drawing flags for illegal contact.
Either way he'll get the yardage if we don't hit him, pressure him, mess up his head.
The Pats don't necessarily need to run the hyper no-huddle to win this game. They only run it when there's an advantageous matchup. They are perfectly capable of huddling up and running a successful offensive set.
If Jets players actually pull these kinds of stunts while they are doing it, not only will they lose the game but the Jets will get blasted across every media in existence.
As far as I know, the only rule is if the Pats substitute, they must allow the defense to substitute too. Also, in the final two minutes there are additional rules that disallow fake substitutions.
I could be wrong, but I think the Pats do run the hurry up on downs with incompletions.

Since it's a violation of the rules, it's cheating to gain a competitive advantage....no different than spygate.
From last year's league memo
"Those found to be violators will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action for conduct detrimental to the game," the memo states. "Discipline could include fines of coaches, players, and clubs, suspensions or forfeiture of draft choices."
You've obviously watched the Pats more than me, but it just seems that the logistics don't seem to lend themselves towards hurrying up. Everyone needs to get back to the LOS and the ball needs to be brought back. It seems likely that a defense can get a sub package in before the ball is spotted and snapped.
I'll be interested to see how that works though.
This hurry up offense also presents a challenge for Brady. With the intent of getting the snap off quickly he does not have the time to really read and see the D pre snap. Personally I think the trick to cracking it is to be completely unconventional with our defensive assignments. I'm thinking more of a Dick LeBeau style with zone dog blitzes and the likes. If Brady sees conventional defenses he's going to think quickly and make the proper quick read. If he has to stop and think about what he's seeing on D while dropping back then it gives us time to get to him. Now I realize this is Brady so I don't give us much of a chance, just saying what I'd do.....along with alot of fake injuries
You could take the madden approach ... if NE is hurrying up ... 'don't hurry' ... save your breath ... let them march down the field until they are within the 40 then hold them to a FG. Saves the stress on the D until needed for a FG defense, and gets our offense on the field quicker.
Sounds insane ... but it works in Madden .. hahaha.
Bottom line is the Pats aren't unbeatable.
The three times it's been done, it's been the passing game that's beaten them.
If the Jets can get that kind of a game plan and slow Brady down enough, the Jets will win. If the Jets aren't successful in either case, I see the Pats winning this game.
this is easy: every time Maybin is on the field, he needs to hit Brady. Either the clock stops for the injury or the penalty. bingo bango no hurry up, and we get our subs.
