    BEND DON'T BREAK....FACT!!!!!

    In the NFL you can't base your defense on the BEND DON'T BREAK theory.....Any time you get into a close ball game and overtime for sure!!!! You will loose 7 out of 10 times if not 9 out of 10!!!!! Your defense and the DC will still let a team run down the field to the 25 before they buckle down!!! It is just the way it works...Well that is a for sure FG and if a TD is needed it will happen...In the past it worked for the Pats because we had an offense and the games were not that close most of the time!!!!
    Now we have an idiot calling plays and let's face it...When the below avg to avg fan knows what the play is - what do you think the other coaches KNOW!!!!!

    This team needs an aggresive style of defense and a OC that can call a pass play on 2nd and 3 or 4 to go!!!!! And a blitz by our defense on 3rd and long would be nice!!!!!

    At this point BB has lost control of this team and he better real them in and fast!! The New England Patriots are too damn reaxed and not hungry at all!! It starts with coaching and the players better have faith in the staff from the top down!!

    BB - Has 70% I would say that would run through a wall for him..
    OC - I bet not even 30% for him..
    DC - Maybe 50% for him..

    That is a very important factor for any sports team.....

    Huh?

    The Pats have almost always exclusively played a bend don't break style of defense. Picking and choosing their spots to attack(blitz). That IS BB's philosophy. They have most always won over the past decade by winning close games. 2007 was the ONLY aberration on that and even that was more or less through only the first half of the 2007 season.

    Better go back and look up the Patriots stats.....Start by looking at negative yardage plays against opponents offense and then look at sacks??

    Heck I could be wrong???

    We won three SuperBowls using this bend don't break philosophy, the difference at the time was an offense that ate up the clock, controlled the ball, converted on third downs and in the red zone... we don't have that now and that's a fact.

    Was this poll conducted in the locker room or electronically? When you get a chance, if you could post the individual voting results I'd really like to know exactly which players voted for the OC, a position that actually doesn't exist on the Pats.

    Defensive player of the game = Randy Moss

    That pretty much sums up the futility of the Pats' D.

    Re: BEND DON'T BREAK....FACT!!!!!

    how the hell are you blaming the defense... look at the damn facts... Coming into this year, it was the Offense that was supposed to carry this team, and defense was supposed to be bad... well its been the other way around... This defense has been put in more positions to win/lose the games at the end of the games then it should have been. The offense hasnt been able to do many things in the 4th quarter.... The offense DIDNT score any points after the half... That is inexcusable for THIS offense... It is supposed to be better than this... The great Patriot teams were great at scoring when they got the ball at the half... if the pats scored a TD on that drive, it would become 24-7 and the defense is able to play to its strength, which is apply pressure and cover..
    I blame the offense, and brady for missing a few throws that he needs to make..

     How many interceptions have the defensive backfield had since Dean Pees has been the defensive Coordinator ??That's because the defensive backs in his defense have to take a cab to the receiver when the ball is in the air they are so far off the receiver !!!!! That defensive philosaphy
    and Dean Pees are yesterdays newspaper !! The medium range pass (10-15 yds )
    works all day against that defense...We stop the run most of the time just fine but it seens the receivers arn 't even touched untill they make the catch !! Its about time someone should realize how vunerable to the medium pass this offense is !!!

    Well I don't know about all the other fans of the Patriots but if Leigh Bodden gave a bigger cushion up on his side of the field even i could have caught 4 passes off his side.7 yard cushions on every pass play to Boddens side of the defense,absolutely no way to defend the out pattern or the the 10 yard slant!! He very rarely played the bump and run,when he did the other side was in cover zone and thats where McDaniels had his team attack!We want the Hoodie coach back not this soft hearted fool!!

    What?...The Pats D has been driven on late in games by Buffalo, Baltimore, the Jets and now Denver. Get a grip, the Pats D is pretty awful. Up until now they have been hiding behind the fact the offense has been winning time of possession. This Pats team is just not very good...

    He was 25-12 before Sundays game. Just because you thought he was nobody does not mean he was. Mc D traded Cutler for him. He must have thought something of him.

    He might not win so many games all on his own but he doesn't lose them for you either.

    The defense is still learning the method, they're in position to make plays but aren't quite making them, that's going to improve as the season goes on...  but had the offense played the second half equally as well as the defense we wouldn't be having this conversation. 

    At the end of the day the offense is supposed to help the defense is supposed to help the special teams...  it's a team effort win or lose. 

    In this case the offense keeps losing it for us by not taking a more conservative approach in the passing game and by applying a heavy dose of running game.  The Broncos game was determined at the half, all we had to do was come out with the same tenacity and pound the rock for another half and convert short third down plays.
