In response to TrueChamp's comment:
That's why Brady is the best there ever was, no matter what happens he still has ice water in his veins! I definitely have hated to see Brady lose guys like Branch, Givens, Moss, and Welker, but we had plenty of chances to win with continuity at the position and we couldn't get it done.
I don't think Brady needs multiple great receiving threats across the board, look at how well we were doing with a healthy Gronk, KT, Dobson and Vareen with Edelman, and Amendola. He makes the player more often then not, but I agree he has to be bothered by the fact his defense has killed him for a while now.
BB has not been able to get the D to play consistent for many years. For whatever reason you choose to believe it is what it is. Now the defensive woes have certainly not been the only post season problem as the 13, 17, and 14 pts we have scored in our last afc championship game and 2 SB's have shown us, but the D , melts down in the clutch almost consistently.
IMO coaching cannot be let off the hook here. BB's conservative defensive game plans may not be fit for the current offense driven NFL. I'm not sure what Matt Patricia actually does on this team as I see BB coaching the defense almost every game. I wish we had brought RAC back as I think BB had a trust level with him that he does not come close to having with his current assistant coach.
Obviously this defense looked to be one of the best in football until we lost our 2 captains. Let's not forget that the last 2 years this defense had turned a corner and were coming together well imo.
"Let's not forget that the last 2 years this defense had turned a corner". Really! It was 31st in pass defense last year with most everyone healthy. I'd liken that more to falling off the table into the garbage pail.
