    That's false. Top 10 in some categories, middle of the road in points allowed.  No one cares about yards allowed off a lockout in this offensive era. The last stat that matters is yards allowed, very obviously to people with half a brain, Pezzy.

    If the D allows yards betweent the end zones and keeps them to FGs, then great. That's what I want in this day and age. Add in a couple turnovers per game, and even better.

    The NY GIants were "ranked" 27th last year in yards allowed, a mere 4 spots from where NE was "ranked" in yards.

    So, this is basically a difference of 20-30 yards. It's dummies like you that can't see why a G or a NO's has huge leads in many of their games, which skew the the "yards allowed" argument.

    Rex Ryan will tell us how great his D is and it's comically been worse than ours last year and this year. They can't tackle, can't get sacks, can't stop the run and don't get turnovers unless against weak QBs. lmao

    Personally I wish you were right, I really do. I like the Patriots...been a fan for a long time and appreciate what has happened over the last 12 years, but this defense stinks. I don't care where they are ranked...what is considered "good yards"...what is considered "bad yards"..."yards allowed".

    I watch a bit of football - there is nothing in the NFL like our secondary. Nothing. Now there may be quite a few teams that have our anemic pass rush, but nothing like our secondary. This is not a situation where  we can change one guy and make it better, this is a situation where there is MANY personell mistakes in one large unit (it could take years to fix). Resources have been wasted, over and over and over again on this position.

    Now Brady stunk yesterday...he flat out stunk, but get used to losing games on a regular basis if he plays like that again because what we are witnessing in that secondary and defense as a whole is legendary. These are the type of players that get most coaches fired - luckily we have a coach that can cover up a lot of things, but even he can't help this sad sack of a defense.

    Only good in Run D and ints because everyone passes on them ..No need to run when you are having 62 yard completions, now is there?  Worse D  in the league and soon will be at their rightful 32nd rank  Bet the farm on it.

    Re: The cold hard facts.

    Brady has had so many 2 minute comebacks in his career that fan's expect that. Fans expect him to always make the plays when it counts.  Lets face it he is 35 and has lost some of his edge. 

    This game and the Baltimore game are what we are likely to expect against other good teams. Pats have the ball and a first down or 2 would wrap up the game. Instead the O-Line goes to sleep and Brady is 3 and out or sacked. No run attempts to eat up the clock either because they failed to establish the run early or because Josh McD likes to pass just the same as he did in 2007. Then after a punt the D makes the other team look like the 2007 Pats (before the SB) who cruises in for a TD and the win.  

    Along the way - no second half adjustments so any lead vanishes in the 2nd half. Things like wasting your last time out for 12 men on the field show a coaching staff that must be on pain killers so the second half is a blur to them.

    No second half adjustments and the players sucking wind on the field in the 2nd half.

    Sucking wind. Their receivers run right by you. Their O-Line gives their QB all day to pass. Their D-Line and blitzes make Brady look bad. Their DBs stick to your receivers like glue - no one can get open.

    Re: The cold hard facts.

         Seattle should never have had the chance to win the game like that.  We should have been ahead by at least two TD.  That being said, it would be nice to see the defense actually shut down an opponent and win a game for us.

    Re: The cold hard facts.

    The cold hart fact is that the offense, the coaches and the defense all stunk at times yesterday. Unfortunately they all really stunk badly in the last 10 minutes or they may have squeeked out another ugly win.
