[QUOTE]In Response to All the haters of our defense... : WHAT A CROC OF BS!!!!! AZnd I suppose that the Saints', and Packers' D was also "lying in the weeds" too, right, Oh Great and Mighty Defense Guru????? I've said all along that this bunch of D players scare the bejeesus out of me. Last night they played the FULL game against a 1 dimensional team averaging less than 20 PPG. They did what they were supposed to do from the 1st play. Suffuce to say that this really impressed me... Good for them, and IT'S ABOUT FREAKIN' TIME!!!!! Now, let's see what they do against Rica and the Ravens, should they beat the Texans. I will say that, should Houston spring an upset (BrokeBacks/Steelers, anyone??), that they would give the Pats absolute fits, with both a running game, a passing game, and a stout defense. So, with you being the Great Defense Guru you profess to be, with such sightful inside info, want to predict scores vs the Ravens or the Texans? How about vs any of the 3 remaining NFC contenders? "BB was playing it conservative all season" Thanks for the Sunday morning humor and chuckle!

Glad I could give you a chuckle, like so many you and others gave me over the season predicting gloom and doom for our terrible defense. All season I suggested BB was saving his D tackles for the post season, this isn't something I came up with after one playoff win, others here will attest to that, I've been saying this all season.
And like a few others here I don't subscribe to fantasy stats as the end all be all, you don't get points for gaining a lot of yards.
If you feel a tad bit foolish because the defense held the Broncos to one TD, held the #1 rushing team in the league to 3 yards a carry, probably set a playoff record for stops in the backfield, sacked Tebow 5 times and intercepted him once looking otherwise dominant exclusively running a 3/4 base defense don't feel bad you are not alone.
You were probably one of the lemmings parroting the national media and other posters all season about BB changing to a 4/3 defense, all the while I insisted he wouldn't.
I know it smarts when you're wrong, but I wasn't thinking of you when I initiated this thread, try not taking it personally.
As far as the rest of the post season goes, if the Pats run the ball and stay unpredictable on offense then we won't lose to anyone. If we lose it will be because we passed 50 times, got sacked 5 and intercepted 3 times... that's not a prediction just a trend.
I have had San Francisco meeting them in the Super Bowl since before the playoffs began, though it won't surprise me if Green Bay gets there but then I don't claim to be an expert on anything, I just post my thoughts, try not to attack genuine Pats fans and admit when I'm wrong, something you should try and emulate.
I sincerely hope that makes you laugh as well, I love spreading joy...
