In response to Spetznaz24's comment:
I do not have any confidence that Belichick can build a great defense.
We have had a pathetic defense for the past 5 years. A good defense has a pass rush and good safeties, cornerback. We have neither.
Our defense has suffered a major meltdown for 2 years after Talib went out. There is no depth. Surrendering 8 straight scoring drives to the Broncos is quiet a fear.
How many draft busts has Belichick had on defense? Dozens. Still hasn't drafted an elite pass rusher, cornerback or safety in the past 10 years. Now thats embarassing.
I couldn't agree LESS.
The D, THIS YEAR, looked VERY good until about the 4th significant injury to a starter.
Jones, Collins, Hightower, McCourty, Mayo, Ninkovich, Ryan, Dennard....hopefully add Talib, WIlfork is some semblence of his former self, and that's the start to a very good D. They proved it this year.
Rookie of the year at CB, Pro Bowl ar Safety...what does McCourty have to do, be Ed Reed? That kind of expectation is outrageous.
