Two Dolphins defenders said the team acquired game tape that included audio of Brady making calls, The Palm Beach Post reported Monday.
However they did it, the Dolphins made good use of the information, sacking Brady four times, knocking him down three other times and limiting him to 78 passing yards.
"I've never seen him so flustered," linebacker Zach Thomas said.
He said the Dolphins spent extra time studying Brady's calls, which usually set up his pass protection.
"We watched a lot of tape, even (audio) tape, to hear his signals and things like that," Thomas said. "We had him a little confused."
Two players said the Dolphins "bought'' tapes that included audio of Brady. Asked about purchasing special tape that included audio, coach Nick Saban indicated Monday that the players might have been confused. Saban said the Dolphins simply used past telecast.
Why wouldn't every team do this. Bill is going to die an old and lonely man, buried in his oversized sweatshirt.
