    defense?

     In a few games do you think the defense will be stronger? even with mayo coiming back, is the rest of the defese pulling it's weight?

    Re: defense?

    The D is younger and quicker. Wright had a good play at the beginning. The D did alright today. TBC also had a good sack. They held the Jets to 16 pts. All we needed was some O to get some points. If the 3 trips to the RZ were TD's we would have had 21 pts.

    Re: defense?

    The Defense is NOT the problem. Last yead they gave up an avg of MORE than 19 pts a game and still ended the season 8th in points allowed in the NFL. They are already giving up less than that. 17 pts and 16 pts. I'll take that all season long as an avg.

    Sure I would like to see them attack once in a while when we have a team 3rd and long but thats just me.

    Still, the offense did not score a TD today, You can't hang any of this loss on the D in my opinion.

    The D handed Brady the ball on that fumble and Brady blew it.

    16 pts vs a division rival on the road the D was very good.

    Re: defense?

    The D had a few breakdowns, but I agree with Parish....16pts is a win for the D. They are VERY young and they kept them in the game. The offense didn't execute. Thats what lost the game.

    However, as I noted in another post, I think we got some pressure issues with the D Line. The past two games showed our inability to get pressure on the QB with only our front 4. Here is where the loss of Seymour really shows. He usually garnered two OL's to block him and between he and Wilfork, they usually took 3 OL's which allowed others to get some pressure. I think BB will need to be creative with his stunts and blitzes and generate some pressure from the safeties, corners, and LB's.

    As far as the offense goes, we are going to see A LOT more blitzing the rest of the season. Opposing D coordinators will be following Ryan's game plan. No QB in the league is as good with defenders in his face as without and thats all Brady is going to see this year. The offense will need to either adjust their game plan accordingly or it will be a losing season.


    The PATs are one of the best teams in the league and it is a long season. We have to remember that the D is young / new and the offense is going to be rusty. They'll get better. Nobody should count them out yet.

    17 and 16 points in the first 2 games....Not bad at all!  D is not the problem.

    Re: defense?

    Can you believe that we are now going into week three and no one has the right to complain about the defense. The offense that looked better on paper this year than in the record setting '07 season is not showing up. Maybe we're forgetting that Tom hasn't played football at this level with these guys in a long time and we have to patient. But, do we have the time to be? Look who the Patriots play the next few weeks. The defense needs to keep it, but the offense needs 6's not 3's!!!

    Moss,

    The D only gave up 17 points in week one. The offense gave up 7 with the interception. How can you hold that against the D?

    A ship doesn't turn on a dime. Crying foul and having urgency in week 2 isn't going to change course. They'll get better.

    The pats d played against a suspect O with a rookie QB.  I wonder if Belichick as pats coach has ever lost to a rookie QB before today.

    Re: defense?

    Either way, with the way the defense was looking on paper, you'd think the pressure would be on the offense to put up 40 each game but it's quite the opposite. In fact, you could easily say, "defense is keeping us in the game and giving Brady and company a chance at the end. what more do you want?"

    Bills offense was no laugher, let's not lose sight of that. Yes, on paper the loss to the Jets looks bad because of a rookie quarterback but still. Last year, if you lost to Flacco's Ravens or Ryan's Falcons, you couldn't use that excuse because hey, they weren't play like your typical rookie QBs.

    Before today Belichick was 5-1 against rookie quarterbacks.  The one was Roethlisberger, and later in the year the Patriots beat the Steelers in the playoffs in Pittsburgh, with Roethlisberger throwing three interceptions.  Let's hope something similar happens this year.

    I don't think BB "lost" a game to a rookie QB.  The Pats D only gave up 16 points.  If anything, it is the lack of the Pats O to close out the deal in the red zone.  Very suspect play calling and not enough running plays or screen plays to keep the Jets D honest.  In the end, the Jets called the Pats 'bluff", that being they would just keep trying to beat them with the pass, so the D had no pressure to stop a running attack.

    Re: defense?

    TB is out of sync with the receivers.  We need to shut down the run and get a better LB's.  Watching the Ravens vs. SD hoping we can duplicate the Ravens explosive defense.  Go Pats!
