Wright Thompson does his best to profile Ernie Adams, the unknown commodity in the New England Patriots braintrust. He's referred to as the NFL's equivalent to James Bond's "Q," "Belichick's Belichick," and "asocial." Nobody's quite sure precisely what his job entails -- including the players -- but he's helped build the framework for one of the greatest teams of all time. Teachers, friends, coworkers and classmates share their insight on Adams, but he remains such an enigma that Thompson closes his column by simply asking Adams to contact him.

The Patriots lose a fourth-quarter lead for only the 15th time in 15 years. Also: Seattle's first shootout win, the kick-six, leaping in TB-IND, an aggressive Alex Smith, and the one negative way Aaron Rodgers stands out from his peers.
