Good decision
This is about the team, not about what the media wants to see

Can't wait to see Brady get hit relentlessly and for those **** heads to leave Denver with another loss.

Really? I think this is a terrible decision.

Preparing for a Manning offense vs. preparing for an Osweiler offense are such different things.

Why not let Belichick waste time preparing for both? Why not lock down Dove Valley, as much as the league allows, and call it a game-time decision?

My thought as well. The 2 offenses are extremely different, why let your opponent know which one to expect?

Any idea who is starting at head referee? Seems to be the most important opponent we face....

How much footage could belicheat have to prepare for Brock?
I see your point, and sounds to me like something that would be the norm in the nfl, don't show your hand early
Plus, they all know the type of injury Peyton has

I think Brock has a broad knowledge of the playbook and it's a matter of what kind of wrinkles would Kubiak throw in that will be best executed by Brock than it would've with Peyton

You can't play that "who should we plan for" stuff with Belidouche, I'm sure he already knew the Broncs we're going to play Brockweiler.

I think this was a consideration, but they probably made the call based on the distraction it could have been by not naming a starter until the game.

They probably felt it was better to go without that distraction.

Belichick is smart enough to know brock will start. We wouldn't be fooling anyone but the media.

There's zero chance this decision could be kept under wraps.

Good. They'll roll with Brock as long he plays well, even if Manning gets "healthy".

As Shannon Sharpe said earlier today there's no reason to try and be clever because Belichik is preparing for Osweiler.

It does not likely change a single thing that Belichick plans to do on defense.
He plays a damn near pure vanilla look against Manning and attacks the gaps and initial LOS to get pressure on Manning and force him to move.

He will probably target Brock in the same way but mix in a little more exotic looks.
