In response to kjfitone's comment:
Every one is supporting their team cliffy. We just don't see blasting a HOF QB and holding him responsible for the losses when he is carrying one of (if not the) worst defenses in NFL history and has been for years.
That's right I am calling out the QB.. He's just as much to blame as anyone else. Nobody is above anyone else on the team. You completely missed my point so I will make it more simple for ya. Brady and many other guys had a bad game, they have had them in the past. I said it here but I won't go on and on and on and on and on about how badly they played or that the offense or defense can't get out of its own way. Time to move on and support the team. If you don't support the team it's cool to but don't consider yourself a fan.
Dear Dummy, err, I mean Pezzy,
Go look at where the Saints, Packers and Giants Ds "ranked" when they won their SBs.
I'll take an opportunistic D and concede yards any day of the week in this era. You're simply daft thinking this is 1984 or even 2004. Get over it. If you want to write a letter to Tagliabue telling him how you miss the old days or write to all 32 owners telling them how you don't like what their agenda is, go ahead. Have at it. I don't disagree, but you and I aren't changing it.
Paul Tagliabue is LONG gone, son. The Chuck Rule was a point of emphasis in the comp. committee meetings since 2003. Goodell agrees that offense is the key to driving ratings and revenue and for him to get investors in Europe. The owners agree because they know what gets people to come to games and to watch on tv, especially females. Points. Action.
It's no differrent than roids and homeruns for BUd Selig and why he turned his head for so long, knowing those guys were pumping roids. It's good for business, so it's good for ol' Rogie Goodell.
Deal with it. I am a tradionatlist with this game myself, but you're as dumb as a door knob pining for a clutching and grabbing kind of Ty Law/Rodney Harrison D in 2012. Our entire D would be penalized for 200 yards per game if they played that way now.
Law, Harrison, Bruschi, etc, couldn't cover jack squat right now in this league if they were in their primes. It's comical to hear them so arrogantly babbled about what is good D and what isn't. The game has changed. They know it, too.
Every NFL team has to deal with this issue of offenses being favored, so it's how well you deal with it. Unless, of course, you're a moron franchise like the Jets who think it's stll 2004 where you can have a game manager at QB and build a good D with big bucks and cross your fingers. LMAO
The one way for this D to be even more consistent in terms of being good throughout an entire game is for BB to get more pass rushers. He needs to get more up to speed so he can increase his rotation. This will help the back end a lot. A rookie mistake by Tavon Wilson doesn't mean the whole D stinks. But, I'll wait YET AGAIN until December when BB has this D playing well, hopefully at full health, so they're ready again to be opportunisitc and follow his gameplans to a T, waiting on Tom Brady to not mess it up.
You're childish behavior, amongst others here, is beyond annoying to this point.
Go sell that to fans or teams with good and great defenses over a period of time. Like, the Steelers, Bears, Ravens of 2000, Dungy's Bucs, even Dolphins of the 70's. No one paid to see the Bears on offense, epecially when Payton was just about done as a player. They came to see "da Bears" defense. The Steel Curtain was IT for a long time. Who was the record breaking/shattering QB's of the Ravens and Bucs when they were on top of the football world? I don't recall either of their feature backs winning the rushing championship either. These defenses could actually score, which creates excitement. These teams didn't have offenses running up an avg of 35 PPG.
Offense is nice, but paying fans want to see their team win, any way, any how, at all costs. Only folks going to NFL games to "be seen" don't care, as long as there are a gazillion points scored. Heck! They don't even care if the opposing team scores 1 point more than their own (home) team! And you think team owners want to market to that?
