Zach Helfand:

They’ve gotta go back to the Brady sneak, don’t they?” Then the Patriots audibled. Aw, they’re killing it!” he shouted. Usually means a motion and run out wide to the right!” There was motion, then a run out wide to the right. It went for a touchdown.

I always wonder if someone like that would be useful as a defensive coach. Guessing right so consistently what the other team is going to do, and what they might audible to has to be extremely valuable. Even as I say that, I don’t want it to happen since the value to me is provided by having Romo in the booth.
