Adam Gase challenged his players to execute perhaps every formation in Miami’s play book. And they did it well. There was a time earlier this season when Gase felt the need to scale things back. After all, Miami was committing so many pre-snap penalties and running the wrong routes and failing to pick up blocks and barely getting the snaps off in time and, well, you get the idea. But it turns out that challenging his players to show the Patriots defensive an incredibly wide array of formations was genius. The players responded. In the first quarter, Gase stacked four wide receivers to the left in a diamond formation, with Julius Thomas out one-on-one to the right. Gase did an awesome job in this game of creating favorable matchups for Miami. He also confused the Patriots by showing them things he hasn’t shown. No doubt Miami has been holding some of these things back. On a 47-yard pass from Jay Cutler to Kenyan Drake, the running back was matched up out wide up with a linebacker. If you saw how quickly and how far past the linebacker Drake ran, it was embarrassing. This is one of the things Gase does best when he’s got it rolling. Drake, as Lane Kiffin would tell you, can do some Reggie Bush-like things, both as a runner and as a virtual receiver. Gase used Kenyan Drake, Jarvis Landry, Jakeem Grant, MarQuies Gray and Anthony Fasano at running back, fullback and H-back. He used Landry and Grant together in the backfield. He even lined up Laremy Tunsil as a blocking receiver on one play! On a touchdown pass to Landry, Jay Cutler faked a toss to Drake, who was lined up at receiver, then rolled to his right to hit Landry in the flat. Gase has some really good red zone offense ideas. Gase found a way to work Grant into the offense. He utilized misdirection, play-action, pre-snap motions and designed bootlegs to perfection. Gase utilized every level of the field to create open opportunities for receivers. And he set up his play calls with smart sequences. Gase passed on 4th-and-1, using a play-action bootleg pass to DeVante Parker. If anything, this game can lift the spirits of some who criticized Gase’s play-calling this year. And to be fair, Gase has criticized himself at times.

I like what he has been doing with Gray as a fullback...And making teams keep an eye on Grant will open some things up.

I was not a fan of Wake going in to coverage. And we still try and fail on 100x bubble screens.

You could tell Brady was off even before the game started. Our house of doom for him is clearly in his head.

I was thrilled to see the different formations and play calling. RB out of the backfield, can we say we have one now? Drake looks like he can be an every down back.

Yes he was definitely off. And not having Gronk and Edelman
helped too. Still it was nice to see Brady frustrated.
