Babe Parilli vs Rational Pats Fans

    Re: Babe Parilli vs Rational Pats Fans

    I agree that changes with the defense were to slow and it cost us. Did it cost us a championship? I think it did, I believe that if you have the best coach and QB in the league you should win the thing...not every year, but they should never get punched in the face by the jets and ravens (at home) in the playoffs. We were missing play makers on defense and it killed us. I like the change in philosophy and I like some of the players they brought in. Last years draft was a huge success, if it had been close to that 3 of the years previous, we'd of been holding the Lombardi last year.

    Thank You MtHurl.

    Finally a post that everyone should agree on.  We are all fans...even babe, but we all cant see the same perspective.  Not all of us watched the Boson Patriots and so some of us are spoiled, but Rusty is one end of the spectrum and Babe is on the other and most others fall somewhere in between, but this above should be agreed by most.  Is pretty simple, like you said. best coach.qb combo hands down should not go out like we have recently...  Hence the offense morphing back to old times last year and  Moss jettisoned and now the defense change coming this year.  How can you argue that Bill is not changing?

    In Response to Re: Babe Parilli vs Rational Pats Fans : The base of the D is here, just like the offense.  That's what it's meant by saying that as opposed to aging players in 2008 and 2009 with a small amount of young players contributing (only Mayo and Meriweather ) were the ones. Now, he has a whole base on both sides of the ball. So, yes, the rebuilding base, this team young players instead of veterans, is pretty much complete, and that doesn't even count what we know about this 2011 class. He has a base now, where in 2008 and 2009, or even 2010, he didn't have a proven one. Are you not sold on these draft picks?

    I think there is a base, but not a complete one. We are missing key ingredients, but maybe those are fulfilled via FA. It depends on how big a base needs to be, how it's comprised and the mix of young (draft/UDFA) vs. older players (FA's). 

    I'm sold on most of the "base" or younger players still on this roster.

    Where I think we need some help is;
    Safety
    DE (4-3)
    DT (4-3)
    WR
    C

    If we could fill those spots next year in part via the draft and maybe in part via FA, I think we are good.
    Any thoughts on what a "base" actually is? composition of younger players to older ones (and at what positions), etc.?
