Today, instead of his usual press conference, Bill Belichick took all the reporters into a meeting room and showed archival footage of the Great Lakes Naval Station team of the early 40s, commenting on differences between historical football and today's NFL. Then he showed film from a 1941 game between the Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions, featuring a part-time running back and punt returner named Steve Belichick. Raise your hand if you wish you had been a Pats beat reporter today. Yep, me too. This is pretty damn cool.

Short-yardage passing had a good year, except at the end of the Super Bowl. We look at the return of quarterback runs, the rise in pass-happy strategy, and 2014 success rates for offense and defense.
