Mike Vrabel played for Bill Belichick for eight years in New England, so he knows better than most what’s going to upset his former head coach.

Now the head coach of the Titans, Vrabel did a pretty good job of it during Tennessee’s AFC wild card win over the Patriots last season. The Titans led 14-13 with about 6:35 left and were able to take nearly two minutes off the clock late in the game with back-to-back dead-ball penalties in punt formation on fourth down.

The Titans took a delay of game penalty and then committed a false start. They were set to take another delay of game penalty, but the Patriots jumped offsides.

Is the creation of the Pat's "skunk works" guru - Ernie Adams.

Years ago, I worked with a guy with the same kind of mentality - always looking for the edge, just barley this side of legal
(and sometimes on the other side)

This scoundrel was a golf handicap compulsive. He and his son, (the boy was at UNLV on a full-ride golf scholarship) were masters of the golf handicap hustle. The old man was constantly studying his large ledger book trying to figure out who their next sucker was going to be.
