When Albert Breer left the Patriots beat in September, Patriots fans lost one of the best football writers they’ve ever – briefly – had. Hard copy or blog, especially blog, Breer was an ace.
As you know, Breer is now working at the Dallas Morning News, maybe the best sports section in the country when it comes to covering football. And he’s blogging like mad on the paper’s website, which brings us to the subject of today’s post.
Breer always had a technician’s eye for football, and his popular Tale of the Tape feature, with its richly detailed analysis, amounted to a weekly clinic for even the savviest X’s and O’s fan. He’s continued that practice in the Big D, and expanded it to include varied breakdowns of how teams utilize their offensive and defensive personnel.
John Tomase gave us Breer’s Pats-Chargers Tale of the Tape the other day, and afterwards it occured to us (actually, it was suggested to us) that we ought to gather up Albert’s analysis of the Giants playoff games (for it surely exists) as a fan’s primer to the Patriots’ Super Bowl opponents.
So, with regards to Breer, is a collection of his works, grouped by each game the Giants have played since THEY LOST to the Patriots.
