As I said over at the Chip Kelly version of this post, here at Field Gulls, we try to focus some of our attention to the Xs and Os of football and make the game easier to understand. In studying the game, I like to read books, breakdowns, and All-22 analysis, and watching a lot of tape is indispensable.

Here's Patriots coach Bill Belichick doing just that:
