    Tedy Bruschi is confident the Pats "D" will make a Positive Statement Monday Night

    Sounds like Tedy is on The Bandwagon and I hope he's right.
    I grabbed this Paragraph out of Mike Reis' Blog.



    * ESPNBoston.com’s Tedy Bruschi: It’s Monday night, national television, all of America watching. This is a game in which the New England Patriots are going to make a statement. I think the defense is going to come out and play well. Even though they beat the Bills and they’re all saying the right things, I think they know they have something to prove. This is a game when we will finally stop talking about the defense playing poorly and not rising up big games, such as the playoff loss to Baltimore and last year’s Monday night game in New Orleans. I think the Patriots win a three-point game.

    Folks have been slamming Bruschi lately saying he's a turncoat. Now, some folks are gonna say he's a homer :)

    Glad to hear about his positive comments too

    Me too Bubba. That's actually the reason I posted it. He always gets ripped when he says something negative so I figure he deserves a little credit.

    We got game in this defense somewhere they just have to unleash it.

    I think they can play well, but even if they do, I would expect mixed performance for the first3/4 of the season at least...

    This defense is crazy young.

    The Guy that scares me the Most is Fasano. We used to use Harrison on guys like that and I'd like to see them explore that avenue Monday. I don't know if Chung is the right guy for the job because of his size but I'd like to see a shadow on him or somebody laying the wood on him coming off the line just to disrupt the timing. I keep thinking of the Jets game with Keller and guys like Dallas Clarke laying a hurting on us. We haven't been that bad against the run but those 3rd down conversions have been killing us and Fasano seems like the most potent weapon for them in those situations.

    if we win a 3 point game our defense has NOT played well. We have ridiculously good offense. Even a mediocre D would make us two score winners

    So Bruschi is actually taking a backhanded cheapshot at us that Bum!Wink
    I got the feeling he thinks this is going to be 20-17 or 17-14 game.

    That wouldn't be too bad for the defense.
    The Pats are about a 1.5 point favorite right now so at least he has them covering the spread. I'll be pretty happy with a win of any sort.

    How could the Pats be favored this game? I want to believe as much as anyone else that they can beat good teams but this is Miami in Miami. If they win its because they get some turnovers and make TDs out of them or else they lose IMO.

    I'm one of those meatheads that thought Bruschi was being overly negative.  I still think that was the case.  So what gives?  Maybe, just maybe, he realized that himself.  Maybe, just maybe, Reiss has provided some media tips to Bruschi in the same manner that Bruschi has been helping Reiss on the football side.  What this tells me is that Bruschi is a quick learner.  He decided not to turn into a Gasper with football smarts.  Good for him.  I'm sure he won't be a total homer.  I'll appreciate it if he strikes a good balance as does Reiss...except with a little more bluntness.

    I'm inclined to agree. I took the Pats in my pool because I do every week but in all honesty we don't play well down there and before they made the line I expected the Pats to be 3 point underdogs. The line has actually moved in the Pats direction .5 so people are putting their money on them.I think We need to be mistake free on offense especially in the area of drive killing penalties which seem to be a plague on this team. Unfortunately Brady isn't usually perfect when he plays there. That's why Tedy is my man. He's more positive than I am.

    I bet he hates the Dolphins more than we do too. I'll be pretty happy Tuesday if I can say he was right.

    He Better be right. I don't have to work Tuesday so I'm planning on Tanking quite a few as a Combo Birthday/Pats party Monday Night. Hangovers aren't nearly as bad when the Pats win.

    Walter: Sure you'll see some tank battles. But fighting in the desert is very different from fighting in canopy jungle.
    Dude: Uh-huh.
    Walter: I mean 'Nam was a foot soldier's war whereas, uh, this thing should be a f@#king cakewalk. I mean I had an M16, Jacko, not an Abrams f@#king tank. Just me and Charlie, man, eyeball to eyeball.

    Killa- I found a website that generates a new Lebowski quote everytime you click a button. What a great country.

    Their play the last two weeks makes me wonder where that team is that played Cinci hard for one half.

    If they can stop the run I like the Pats' chances. Who here though thinks this team can stop Miami from making seven minute 15 play drives on the ground? As always I'm a fan first skeptic/critic second.

    Interesting comments from Bruschi.  I've also been scratching my head over the Pats being favored and have been since the line first came out.  We'll see.

    Of course he's confident.  This is the Pats.  Against the Phins.  No contest.  Pats win 42-9.

    Tedy always struck me as guy who wasn't afraid to say what was on his mind. There is a chance that ESPN hires guys like Tedy Bruschi because he actually thinks for himself and can offer some first hand knowledge of the game, and not because they want a bunch of puppets who all say the same shite. I realize that is contrary to the popular opinion of this board but I seem to enjoy going against the grain lately.

    The Patriots win by 3 points? No Way! If this is a close game the Dolphins will win it, This has to be a big game for the Patriot offense, they need to blow out the Dolphins immediately and non stop. Run that score up as high as you can get it so you dont have to worry abou tthe defense.
    Mr Brady needs to light up the Monday night sky like it's Christmas. He has the weapons, so lets just see if he can do it! Please play Woodhead, this kid will run hard and score 2 times at least!

    What we will say on Tuesday morning if he's wrong?  I can imagine.

    I hope he's right but.....  They have to play the game don't they?

    Killa, No I am not a fan of ESPN at all. I too think they are the global leaders in unsubstantiated BS, the point I was trying to make is that maybe they hire a high character guy like Tedy in attempt to shred that image. I think other then Tedy only Chris Berman is a guy I respect that works for them . Boomer was very careful to separate himself from his partner Tom Jackson's infamous "BB has lost this team" rant. ESPN's company line is "sources close to the situation" for some reason they get away with never having to produce a credible source for any of the junk they come up with.

    All this is is Bruschi's opinion.  It means nothing.  The game will be won or lost on the field. regardless of what any and all say.  All predictions are opinions.

    The defense wasn't as bad as it was in the first half, by the second half they came together. They played like what I expect this New England team to look like. The defense gets off the field as fast as they can and they offenese stalls and carries them. They'll get better.

    True Champ I have never disagreed with you more. I am a little disappointed in you that you are a fan of ESPN. That place is a tabloid and if you think they do anything but hire puppets you are mistaken. Bruschi im sure does not say anything that he was not told he could say. Bruschi is the only person who gets a buy for working for that crap network everyone else is a hack and they are ALL puppets including Bruschi.
