In response to RockScully's comment:
The didn't stink at all last year in the SB. So, yes, you and your fellow pinkies like to scapegoat the D. You did it in 2007, you do it in 2012 with putrid offensive output and execution.
13 points and waiting for 4 drives to at least get into FG range to ice the game isn't "stinking" at all, especially after two poor defensive efforts last night by Ds that the media RAVES over.
You're running out of time, Babe. So is Brady. Only you and pink hat morons littered throughout this fanbase don't think so.
Enjoy the delusions.
Shove it troll.
BB is the one running out of all the time he has squandered with bad decisions.
He took a bunch of inherited defensive players to 3 Lombardis and then let the D languish for years with bad picks.
Truth hurts for you BB the GM ballwashers.
Personally, I like the D group he's brought in here. The D everyone was raving about in SF, saw them sit on a decade of top 10 picks or not in contention, taking years to get to a SB only to allow 27 points, which is a lot worse than the 13 that our D would have allowed if Brady wasn't subpar himself.
Interesting stuff, isn't it? If our D allowed 21 points in a SB in one half, you'd have 10 threads started bashing BB like a moron.
Mayo, Spikes, McCourty, Jones, Hightower, now Dennard, maybe Wilson can take a step next year, etc. If he resigns Talib, the pressure will be on your boyfriend to get it together even MORE next year, because we'll STILL be waiting on him.
Sure looks like a good young group of names for years to come to me.
You are so utterly dumb, how many "top ten picks" does San Fran have starting on their defense?Navaro Bowman (who plays like a top ten pick should) was drafted in what? The third round? Ahmad Brooks was a third round pick by the Bengals. Dashon Goldson was a fourth round pick! Donte Witner was drafted by Buffalo. Justin Smith was a "top ten pick"...12 years ago...for the Bengals!! So what does that leave us for selections the San FRan actually made in the "top ten"? Aldon Smith, 7th overrall. As I remember the Patriots were hoping to get him, and here's the thing...we could of! We had so many picks we could of got a lot of players during that 4 year period we decided to just trade back and back and back. Patrick Willis was the 11th overral selection....drafted later than Mayo!
So as you can see, most of San Fransisco's starting defense was either brought in through free agency or built in the middle rounds. The only "top ten pick" was Aldon Smith. This is a defense that was built in a variety of ways - top ten picks are the smallest piece of that puzzle.
We didn't fare so well in our defense rebuild. We have a top ten pick (Mayo) that apperently is still learing to play linebacker, despite doing it since birth - that's the only way I can describe a guy that still can't cover and still doesn't know what gap to go into when he is playing outside linebacker...never mind him whiffing on tackles on the goal line in the most important game of the year.
You mention Mayo, Spikes, McCourty, Jones, Hightower, now Dennard, maybe Wilson. How many of those guys were first round picks? Four of them! How did we do in free agency to build our defense? Because San Fran came away with Justin Smith, Donte Whitner, and Ahmad Brooks. We went out and got Fenene, Gregory, Haynesworth, Ellis, Shawn Springs, Leigh Bodden. How much cash have we spent between these busts and Mayo over the last four years? 80 million total? It might be more - way to use that scary, precious cap space.
As everyone tells you, learn the game. If we had their defense we win the Super Bowl last year, the year before and this year. Instead we went looking for value...shopped at Walmart...yard sales...and we bought the wrong stuff:(
