I agree that BB deserves a lot of criticism for putting a consistently crappy secondary on the field for now going on 4-5 years. He has struck out here both in the draft and in FA. That is something that can't be disputed. It's because of this that Talib was acquired mid- season. It's because of this that we had Edelman playing corner last yEar.
He has been a master of plugging guys in and somewhat hiding this glaring deficiency, up until we get consistently burned on the long ball.
TaLib should help, but BB also should think about how he uses this guy . He is a press corner that is good in man coverage..as is Dennard. Use these guys to their strengths combined with a more consistent pass rush, healthy dose of sending spikes, mayo and hightower and this defense can be good enough to succeed in the post season.
No offense, but we don't consistently get burnt on the long ball. That was the new this year in like 3 games, 1 with replacement refs with phantom PI.
Mark my words: This whole secondary media crap drama will be buried, quick. Hopefully, everyone is healthy come postseason, but don't expect this rhetoric to last.
How can BB pay for CBs when has most of the money invested in the offense at the same cap limit as 2009? Brady wasn't making the money he makes now as he did then. Nor does Mankins.
Please try to use logic.
I know that Patriots have allowed 10 passing TDs of 20 yards or more... I believe that is the highest in the league. I would consider that having trouble with the long ball...
I do not have the numbers in front of me, but they have allowed something like 16 plays of 30+ yards. The most in the league. Averaging two 30+ yard pass plays per game is consistently getting burned. It actually more than the Patriots number one offense produces...
number one in successful 20 yard plays allowed, i believe it was before the game they had 39.
#1 in 30+ yard plays allowed.
and as far as paying for cbs, 1 there is alwys a way to work th ecap. 2 we had room thi sofseaosn. 3. if yo value not allowign 50 yard tds you can put the oney there instead of elsewhere. however that being said, if this works out, this will be abest case scenario.
