    Laz, excellent read and follow on post.  Thanks.

    BBR, absolutely agree.

    There may be a better football coach than Belichick somewhere but I don't know who it is.  Team looks better and better every week.  Imagine - when that young D gets it all together?

    Laz,

    I just want you to know that your insistence upon spelling "truly" with two L's is not the reason I almost never read your interminable, rambling posts.

    Fight the power!

    Cool

    I kept asking who rebuilds on wins divisons? Who wins 11 games, which is normally good enough for a playoff spot, with back up QBs? Who replaces 4 Pro Bowl def players in a complex 3-4 D and wins divisions? Mind you, this was after the draft this year, the beatdown by Balt in the playoffs during a rebuild, and in August and Sept this year, when many fans had their hands on their hips constantly bashing BB's drafts and Defense. Well, well, well. Seattle hasn't been able to win the NFC West in 3 years as they rebuild and that's the easiest division in the NFL. Makes you appreciate the utter genius in which BB is able to try to win and actually supplant talent with new, younger talent at the same time.

    its actually kind of funny because there were only a few on these blogs early in the season that were saying stuff like this...that the pats would be good and that bill actually knew what he was doing...   rusty being one of the ones that never deviated from this view and he got crusified for that and calling people out...and noone in the national media had a clue...

    but now all of a sudden the retooling of the team is coming to fruition and you dont hear that sh*t about bill now about how the pats would sux and bill had to go...... the posers that were saying it then have totally changed their tune....

    udg5...   or should we call you fluffernutter???   get it???

    there are plenty of one and done teams and many quarterbacks like gomer (marino) that win their superbowl but are not in the elite class...

    sorry buddy ... gomer and the paper tigers dont belong in any converstaion with the greatest....   so go back to "advising" gomer

    At the article, their analysis of the defense suffers from a few flaws:

    First, the Patriots have been playing prevent in the fourth quarter a great deal of the time.  The defense has given up an average of 8 points a game in the first half and 7 points a game in the fourth quarter.   The prevent seems to work a huge percentage of the time in New England under BB and Tom Brady.  This year's 6-1 record is no fluke.  If the Patriots played the same defense in the second half as they do in the first half, losing 8+8=16 points a game, everyone would say how good the defense was, but they might lose more games. 

    Second, the Patriots manage to give up huge chunks of yardage in places where yardage doesn't translate well into points.  I'd suspect that the Patriots are 32nd in the league at defense between the opponent's 5 yard line and their own 45 yard line.  This is because they overplay a prevent defense at these distances.  The opponent looks good on paper, with those occasional mistakes.  The defense typically tightens up just before field goal range. 

    Third, BB says that sacks are overrated.  The Patriots get a bigger share of QB knockdowns and hurries.  Those numbers are more spread around, rather than having one sack specialist on the team.  Sad to say, but the Patriots get their share of opposing quarterbacks knocked out of the game because their huge defensive linemen bull-rush.  I suspect that one big QB knockdown (Myron Pryor for example) is at least the equivalent of two little knockdowns.

    Why change people's minds?  Let other people think that the Patriots' defense is no good.  That in itself wins games.

    The Colts went 11-5 with a backup QB???

    Pray tell, when?






    Anxiously awaiting your idiotic response.

    Great post Laz.  I actually read the whole thing :)


    By the way I'm also one of those few who has been saying since the draft (Hernandez and Gronk) that we were going to be great.
