    Okay... how many Ds will actually "shut down" Ryan, Brees or Manning? I think expecting ATL to be held down to 3 points is stupidity.

    So what's a more realistic criteria?

    The top 9 scoring Ds have held their opponents down to 17 or fewer points. ATL averages 24 pts a game (17 and 31). Holding ATL down around 21 would be a good defensive effort.



    I agree with this. I would consider holding Atlanta, NO and Denver to under 21 a good defensive effort...

    All I want to see is for them to make at least one of those QBs look uncomfortable. '

     

    Holding these guys to under 300 passing yards in this league is pretty damn hard. Sub 60 completion percentage, sub 7.0 y/a would be considered a victory to me.

     

    And doing that to one of Brees, Ryan, and Manning may be enough for me....Just need to show that we're at least capable of slowing a top tier QB. Containing all three is would be a longshot for any team except maybe SEA.

    Pats D has done a most respectable job thus far albeit against teams that aren't particularly good.  Atlanta and New Orleans will be tests to be sure but I think it truly is a bit much to expect any team to shut down either of them.

    I think they've been very solid against three crap offenses, which is way more than you could of said at ths the last year. Talib helps...Dennard too, we'll find out soon enough what they are made of in the coming weeks. 

     




    I agree, they have looked better this year then last, but we were expecting that.  I didn't like how Dennard or Arrington looked today.  Happy with the rest of the D.  Still worried about Gregory too.  Next 3 weeks will be the test, looking forward to those games.  We should have a much better feel for the D after those games.  So far so good!

     



    but we were expecting that.  I

     

     

    You were expecting that. This is the NFL any team can win.

     

     

    Great team win today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

     

    The O didn't win and the D didn't win, THE TEAM DID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
