    Patriots Defense Will Take A Few Weeks To Hit It's Stride....

    No one panic, we got a lot of new players on that defense.  It will take a few weeks for everyone to get right but I think we'll be a much faster defense than the last couple years, we ran down the running backs on a lot of those sweep runs very nicely.  The key is Mayo, hopefully he doesn't miss time, because right now he's clearly our best defensive player.    

    In the long run going young on defense will be the best thing in the world.  Seymour, Harrison, Vrabel, and Bruschi weren't getting any younger or faster.

    Our D gave up 17 points, not bad considering Mayo was out. This D won't hit it's stride til week 6.

    yup. new scheme and mostly new players. they will be fine, and will get a boost once brace, pryor, and chung are ready to contribute. i was a bit surprised that woods barely got on the field though. i think he will see more action in the next few games. lets just hope that mayo gets back in there soon...

    like i said in the other thread... forget about panicking... lets b excited...
    i saw secondary including corners making some big hits, and actually around WR's and tackling for once...
    Hopefully mayo injury is not serious... pats will be top 10 D by the end of the year...

    I said it will take until roughly mid-season for them to gel.  They will peak at the right time; just before the playoffs.  That said, they weren't all that bad, even though they did make the Bills look a little better than they probably are.

    They took T O out of the game and had excellent pressure on Edwards late in the fourth quarter. I will take it for now, with an optimistic view of further gelling in the next couple weeks.

    WHat's amazing is that Wilhite had coverage on T.O. for the majority of the plays. I'm telling you people, this guy is going to be better than Asante Samuel by the end of this year.
