    Loss of Mayo To Be The Straw That Broke The Camel's Back?

    http://www.boston.com/sports/blogs/goingdeep/2013/10/thoughts_on_the_loss_of_jerod.html

    The defense has come so far since Talib's arrival. We've already lost Wilfork for the season, and now Mayo.  Kelly and Talib are injured starters.  Are these factors enough to cause the defense to go into a tailspin for the rest of the season or will BB conjure up his magic and "the next guy" will be enough to continue the progress?

    I believe the O will begin to earn it's pay going forward easing the losses on D.

    Pretty soon we're going to be talking about run stopping cornerbacks or some such nonsense.  I don't really believe they can play at high level with nothing but subs.  I've already been surprised by how they have overcome the missing players.  I think Mayo may have been the straw.

    The D will be OK..it's a big loss, but we have no choice but follow the mantra we've followed since BB got here...NEXT MAN UP...

    You'll see, we win the division and get to the AFC Championship game...

    Duh!  That's a given.

    It's the Playoffs we are worried about.

    Fortunately we're pretty deep at LB and I think that Fletcher has the poise and experience to fill in really well, In fact I think he might be better than Mayo in pass defense. If you watch him on ST he seems to have almost as much speed as the gunners. Mayo was a tackling machine but we'll get through this. The loss of Talib would be much more critical.

    Injuries are piling up. Could they make a deal for someone decent and bring them in before the trade deadline closes

    When did the AFC Championship game, and the games preceding, begin to not qualify as playoff games?

    We won't make the AFC Championship with the D as it stands now.  It will be a 1 and done deal, sadly.

    Well, you bolded the print that said "we win the division and get to the AFC Championship game.." and you responded with "duh, that's a given." 

    Poor Bustchise.  Not only are you dumb, but you'll be on suicide watch when the Pats do indeed make it deep into the playoffs despite our injury woes.  You can keep dreaming, though.

    Like Wilfork, Mayo is overrated. He can't cover and, in the running game, gets walled off by blockers. The Pats won't miss a beat.

    You guys are overvaluing Mayo, not saying he's not important, but the Pats have a deep LB corps. Collins and Hightower will have to replace Mayo's production.

    Vince isn't as important as he once was, either. In a 4-3, Vince was not as useful as he was in a 3-4.

    Talib and Kelly, on the other hand, are guys we need to hope the best for.

    wasn't he the one who just rode the excercise bicycle all the time? I don't think he even made the field for a real game. Pass...lol Laughing

    true, seems like this year was the first year I noticed him getting pushed off the line more often.  On the other hand, during our SB years, didn't we have at least one big DL like a Ted Washington type?

    this is true, since they impact the pass rush and pass defense directly.

    My belief, the Pats have a weakness at pass rush that Kelly provided with a great interior push and Talib was a shutdown CB who took the other team's best guy out.


    With Talib gone, BB will have to keep his safeties back for help. And the deep bomb Brees threw to give the Saints a 1 point lead wouldn't have happened if the Pats had a good enough push to knock Brees on his buttocks.

    He had the ball for a good five seconds and he didn't move much.

    In a word, no. 

    Three guys we need healthy come playoff time: 

    Talib, Gronk, Brady. 

    The rest of the pieces we can make do on, and yes, that aspect is the greatest strength of Belichick.
