A Rusty taking a shot at Brady....how original. How about a Defense that doesn't suck Like it has for the past 8 years.
Sounds great....only one tennie tiny problem....this Team is built as an offensive jugernaught not a defensive powerhouse.
If you want to put all the CAP money on defensive side of the ball I got no problem with that. However you can't have a QB taking up 21 Mil in CAP space. You will need a average, hold the fort QB, and a killer defense.
As long as Tom is here this will be an offensive team, just the way it is.
people just cant seem to grasp that. they blame the defense, when its an OFFENSIVE team!....what do you think is going to happen when an OFFENSIVE team's OFFENSE plays like dogsheet??
Exactly. I'll be the first to admit the D didn't battle well enough in the 4th qtr, but I also realize Marquice Cole is the dimeback/STs CB here for a reason. He's not a guy you want on Boldin or anyone of that caliber. Talib and Jones out didn't help.
However, the litany of excuses for the offense, going on SIX YEARS, tracing to SB 42, is absolutely out of control in this town. It's barely talked about on sports radio, we have the 3 Knights runnnig around here trying to block some of us from discussing it, etc.
Our offense has been AWFUL in all the big playoff losses since 2005. It goes that far back. It really does.
In an offesnive era, where BB ups the odds by investing in that side of the ball the most, which is the right move (look at all premier franchises of late, NOs, GB, Balt, NYGs, etc), BB can't go out there buying every Tom, Dick or Harry at 10 mil per to appease Tom Brady's ego.
The pouting from Brady has to to stop, too. I don;t want an abysmal offense from him and then seeing him strolling around the sidelines demanding a turnover or more holds for FGs by our D.
The stuff from SB 46 is a joke. The guy had 4 opps to get them into at least FG range and he blew at least 2 of those because of HIM. No one else. BB didn't make him throw that INT or throw poorly to Welker.
If anyone has let this organization down in the postseason in recent years, it's #12.
Start there, folks.
im not going to go as far as to say brady let the organization down, because he still brought them to the playoffs and to two super bowls since 2007....but he has played poorly and deserves a good portion of the blame as far as why they have come up short.
