In Response to Belichick is failing this team...
[QUOTE]I don't want to hear how great he is (was) either. This defense is HORRIBLE. Period! No debate here. I don't want to hear how the players we have now on defense are anything but average. That includes Mayo, Spikes, Chung, Arrington (and whatever other collectivve group is playing DB this week) Brace (who???) Deaderick (who???), Idehigbo..total garbage and BB is to blame 100%. Add to that the fact that he gives Brady no deep threat other than Ochostinko, refuses to get him a real running attack and makes moronic decisions (cutting Bodden on a Friday) then replaces him with NOBODY! Poor coaching, poor prep with two weeks to prepare and then when you MAY have hafls a chance at winning the game, calls for a stupid onside kick with almost 2 and a half minutes on the clock with 3 time outs and the 2 min warning. Why?? Because BB didn't even trust the crappy defense that he himself has built! ENOUGH!

I can't believe im responding to this thread! Stuff like this drives me nuts. Wha Wha Wha Wha Wha! We lost to a really good team get over it. Thats it! Yes, our defense is not that good right now but i have a hard time believing that BB decided 6 years ago to draft poorly and bring in losers. Drafts are not an exact science. For every one player that turns out to be a stub in the first round you can name five first round picks that flop. Vernon Gholston ring a bell?!
As for Ocho and Hansworth, everyone at least thought there was going to be some upside to bringing these two in. People complaned about Hansworth but only about him as a person not the player. As for Ocho i dont remember anyone saying that Ocho is washed up and he would not be able to help at all.
BB has put together a top level team for the last 10 years. Name another coach/team that has done that? Colts? Manning is out and it looks like the entire team is made of high school players. Jets? Last two years were good but they are struggling this year. Baltimore? They lost to the jags and almost lost to the Cardinals. Plus, whens the last time they've been to the superbowl? Chargers? They are a disaster every year and they should be the best. Saints? They just lost to the Rams. I can go on and on.
I understand everyone wants/expects a Superbowl win every year. The team is 5-2. Will they make it to the Superbowl, who knows. Thats what makes it so interesting. No one thought they could do it in 2001.
If this year becomes too much for you to watch or handle turn it off!
