    Why worry when the Pats have the worst pass defense in football for the past 2 years.

    Even more to worry about then the D

    Pats offense against Dallas sluggish and just 20 points.  Pats offense against Pitts sluggish and just 17 points.

    Common factor.  Teams are really starting to move up the safeties and take away Welker and in this game Hernadez as well.  We have all heard about the "game plan" to beat the Pats--- well looks like we are seeing it come to fruition.

    Price had his man totally beat on the play TB had to move up in the pocket and muffed the throw.

    Price or Slater need to be on the field on 3rd down to at least keep the other team honest.

    Are you serious?  Pitts didnt have to punt until 29 secs left in the game.

    Why worry about the D?  They stink - we know it, they know it, coaches know it - so what's the use for fans to worry?  Similar to last year, if we do make the playoffs this year (and I'm having doubts), there's no way on God's green Earth we'll beat a decent team.  Have we thus far this year?

    23 points and 40 minutes of possession is miserable. I can complain about that all day long. If you allow 23 ppg you are in the bottom half of NFL defenses. Let alone when it's 23 on long 7 minute drives.

    I think the D played right up to their bend don't break belief.  They held the other team to only 23, and gave the O yet another chance at the end.  The safety is not on the D.  The O was completely allergic to the football tonight.  ZERO clock management.  ZERO running game.  ZERO passing game.  ZERO  leadership from the 2 headed monster, BB and TB.  We wanted to lose this game, I'm convinced.  That's all I have left to hope for with this team, because it can't be this bad, I'm sure.

    Re: Even more to worry about then the D

    Actually you have to give credit where credit is due.  Pitt realized that in order to stop our offense, take the top off of the D because we don't have a deep threat, move them up and play man to man.  That combined with getting pressure on Brady leaves very little room or time to operate. 

    Their offensive plan was just as great and just as simple, spread the field (like we like to do) and pick on and apart our pathetic secondary.  The biggest surprise is how close the score was when it really comes down to it.

    40 minutes possession is not all on the d. pats had 4 possessions with no score, combining for about 6 mins of possession. if they just held on to the ball for 3 mins each, pitt possession would have been down to 34. a fifth possession lasted 33 secs. it was for a TD that the d served on a silver platter.

    Posted by RidingWithTheKing[/QUOTE]

    Rallied in the second half? The only thing that changed was that the yardage and time consuming drives by Pittsburg ended in FGs instead of TDs. They gave up 133 yards over thirteen minutes to start the half and both drives ended with points. The only thing that is "AWFUL" about this team is the past defense. The offensive philosophy that you hate just gain 423 on 78 plays (5.5 yards per play) and held onto the ball for thirds of the game.

    The offense definitely has some issues:
    1. While I do not think you need an elite back, but you need to know who your running back is. There is no consistency week to week on even within a game. We have had now four different people lead this team in carries and yards over the course of the season. Depth is nice, but don't these guys needs reps to get some rhythm?
    2. The WR group overall is junk. Welker is an elite slot guy. The best in the NFL. Branch is a good complimentary player, but it is begining to look like is best days are behind him. Ocho, Price, Slater and Edelman are not even worth mentioning. Aaron Hernandez is probably the second best WR on the team.
    3. The offensive line is inconsistent at best. I am sure the RB situation does not help. Different backs tend to have different tendencies and I am sure the line likes get into a rhythm with the same guy blocking behind them. They are old at left tackle (not sure how I feel about Vollmer or Solder being their next year if Light retires). Waters was a nice pick up, but given his age and that he retired once, I would not expect more that a year or two out of him. 

    That said they still have one of the elite QBs in the history of the NFL, the best 1-2 punch at TE in the league today, and the ability to score at will when the offense clicks.

    The defense on the other had has had problems at DB for several years now. McCourty does not look like he going back to the Pro Bowl this year and the opposite corner and free safety position are basically just NFL bodies at this point. The defense looks both underskill and poorly coach on the whole. This team has not had an elite defense since the 2004 Super Bowl championship team. I think it is not a coincidence that we have not won another trophy since.

    freeing up welker and tes from double team and from flooded middle and short routes

    Re: Even more to worry about then the D

    the d is what it is. it sucks. it has for years. it does again this year. with the same people, playing the rest of the year, you can hope for improvement later, but would be foolish to expect that improvement. for this crew, giving up 20-24 is par for course. accept that.

    here's the thing, if you still want this team to make it to the playoffs and go deep in the playoffs, really, the only variable that determines that is the pats offense. they just cannot underperform.
