    It's the GM.

    Dowling, McCourty, Cunningham, Spikes, Chung, Brace, Butler, Wheatley, Crable and Meriweather; almost an entire defense of high draft picks taken by this team in the last 5 years, and the D still sucks.

    Jackson, Tate and Price all drafted high in the last 6 years and we don't have a deep threat. And don't even get me started on what a bust 85 has been. Why is this man still here? Oh yeah, he has friends in high places.

    This kind of incompetent team building has already likely wasted away the remaining Brady years. And the buck stops in only one place.

    Absolutely. This one man show just isn't getting it done. This D and lack of a deep threat is embarrassing.

    Re: It's the GM.

    Yes it is very frustrating. BB needs help on the defensive side. Yes they went 14-2 last year and are 5-2 this year but does anybody have any faith in this defense being able to stop anyone when it counts if Brady hasn't lit the place up in a crucial game. Brady is a HOF QB and 1 of the top 3 of all time. He should be retiring with 5 superbowl rings not 3. Get him some help on defense and he will deliver another 2 rings before he retires - but do it quickly please

    Re: It's the GM.

    I am not saying talent evaluation is poor but it has been, if Pioli was still here we would not be having these issues. Sure he was here for the Chad Jackson's and Bethel Johnson's of the world but damn. I am a die hard but we saw the last of Brady and these pats in the Super Bowl in Arizona and BB knew it and when for it all, and unforunately we lost. This team is a shell of itself and it is sad to see the dynasty of greatness start to dim in Foxboro, when Brady hangs them up so will BB, and the dark ages of the 80's begin again.

    Yes I agree totally. Bellichick is a great coach but I feel he is a control freak also and perhaps a borderline Narcisist IMHO - I can do it all myself? This is BS. When I look at the drafts except for the last 2 he fails miserably. The man needs help  on coaching and a legit front office GM with equal power and an improved NCAA scouting team. I feel sure Mr. Kraft must have had a talk with him after losing 2 AFC playoffs in a row. In the off season Bellichick changed all the D schemes and employed an aged defense. The Steelers dominated that aged defensive D line yesterday. The D backfield is a disgrace right now.

    Yes Babe, too bad the Brady years are going down the tube fast. Without Tom Brady this coach is good but only mediocre based on the decisions Bellichick has made in the draft and lately Game planning - which surprised me. This past game with the Steelers made me re-think the ' Trust in Bill' hoopla. Kraft has got to force him to improve the coaching aspect.

    Your a good contributor to the forum Babe. Don't worry about getting creamed on here, that happened to me the first day last week...hahahhaa

    Agree 100%! BB the coach..great. BB the GM-HORRIBLE! The proof is in the results. I don't know what it is with him but enough is enough. If Kraft can't see it or BB can't accept the fact that he can't do everything then maybe the time has come to part ways. This team as ist stands now with win 11 or 12 games in spite of it because of Brady but will go nowhere come playoff time...Another year wasted with the best QB in the NFL at the helm

    Russ ran out of kool-aid last night.  Thank God there was a 24 hour supermarket around the corner.  He's back and he's on fire. 

    1st question from your comments - how many points did the team that won superbowl 42 score and doesn't that run counter to your comment?

    Are you saying Brady threw his teammates under the bus? 

    nugget of the day - the first step to admitting a problem is admitting it.

    Food for thought - In the Patriots SB years, the following players were non-belichick players. 

    You might call them critical to the pats success:

    Vinatieri
    Faulk
    Brown
    Woody
    Rutledge
    Mitchell
    McGinest
    Johnson
    Bruschi
    Law

    Re: It's the GM.

    Spikes and Chung have been some of the only contributors to this D so far this year so I wouldn't lump them in with the rest, but the shear amount of wasted early round picks is leaning on the obscene in the last 7 years or so.
     
    Of all these early round picks from 06-10' (this years crop, to early to tell) we've basically gotten:

    Spikes - a good solid starting ILB but isn't a play maker
    Gronk - star in the making
    Chung -  a solid starting SS on the verge of pro-bowl caliber
    Vollmer - a solid T but not quite a pro-bowl caliber T
    Mayo - pro-bowl caliber LB who was a top 15 pick

    McCourty - has taken a turn for the worse but can still turn it around

    So 5 starters with a 6th that can either become another Butler or a solid contributer depending on how he reacts to the sophomore slump.

    The problem being that we've had 4 1st round picks, 9 2nd round picks, and 6 3rd round picks in that time period. out of 19 picks in the top 3 rounds over 5 years we've hit on about 25% that could jump to 33% if McCourty works out. Even average drafting teams tend to hit at least 33% of their first 3 round picks. Even if you break it down to only 2nd and 1st rounders then you hit on less then 50%. It's scary to realize the shear amount of wasted picks over the last half a decade. All those picks and nothing to show for it. Top 15 picks might not be guarantied but I think they have a higher shot of hitting then 25%. It might be worth moving up to the top 15 instead of collecting massive amounts of picks and trading for value every year

    Re: It's the GM.

    With respect to all, you can't seriously blame the offense for the Steelers loss.  Look at the time of possesion, right there that tells you that the defense couldn't get off the field.  Did they play bad?  I think they're playing as well as they can, look at the line, you got Wilfork and a cast of characters that no other team wanted.  Haynesworth, Carter, Warren, etc.  You got Spikes and Mayo (hurt) as your linebacking corps and you got Chung and McCourty in your secondary.  That's five guys the Pats drafted and the rest are spare parts that probably couldn't make another teams roster.  Be realistic and lay the blame squarely at BB's feet.  He drafted, signed, released and molded this roster.  I'm sure in New Orleans they think Peyton is a genius, Green Bay thinks the world of their Super Bowl coach, etc. etc.  Let's look at it for what it is and honestly say that the man has not done the job around here for a long time.  Blame Brady, you've got to be kidding me.

    Wrong Russ - The 4th & 2 was not executed.  If it was, they would have called it as such.  Regardless, Belichick could have challenged, right?  Oh wait, he couldn't.  That's right, because the team blew their last time out coming up with the play that failed. 

    BTW - maybe the problem is Brady.  Maybe his contract is too big - highest per year contract in the league.  Maybe the pats are strapped for cash.

    Re: It's the GM.

    t is hard to defend what I saw yesterday and have seen before.  A defense that is consistently presented with third and long that allows the opposing offense to convert almost seemingly at will is not a defense on a team that is super bowl bound.

    We have been saying that this defense will get better but is that happening?  No, it isn't, the same issues that were present last season are still present and now the release of Bodden and sending Dowling to IR, must raise questions about the secondary for any fan.  If you say no and present some other analysis based on whatever stat, you are whistling past the grave yard. 

    Will the defense look better on other occasions?  Probably.  However, it is the quality teams like Pittsburgh, the Ravens and the Packers that the PATS must beat in this league to be successful at the highest level.  With this defense, that is unlikely to happen.  That this is to be laid at Belichik's door is obvious, as he buys and cooks the groceries.
