Don't'chu worry bredbu, we're still here- Like you, and those like yourself, whom still don't have faith in NE's Secondary, WE likewise, have even far less faith in your limited viewpoints about a far too overwhelmingly great number of aspects RE: the game of football.
Even a bad QB in today's current modern day NFL WILL throw...EVERY game, for something in the neighborhood of 270+ yards and 2 TDs. Add in a totally non-existant pass-rush, and the idea that 15 people could man any NFL Secondary successfully, is absolutely laughable. Now add in zero QB Sacks and zero even QB HITS for that matter, PLUS a 5 yard average against the run up front against Baltimore, and who's to blame again bred...? Bred: "Secondary...passes get completed against them, and they don't even return any INTs for Touchdowns."
^ Good, good well-versed rationale as always bred. Add to THIS, the simple fact that when you spread out your O into a shotgun based pass-happy 1 dimensional game, AND it DOES and WILL negatively affect the following 2 aspects of your team GRAVELY: Defensive Success... Your D is on the field more often against an the opposing O which is not as "iced" after having only 1 possession in an entire Quarter of play, the D is less rested and they have been afforded less adjustment time needed in their own gameplan against subsequent opposing O possessions. Next, is 2nd half success, scoring, and ability to seal the game by your OWN Offense due to this approach. YOU are playing RE-Active football... Please get this: A SIGNIFICANT overabundance in your O gameset towards the passing game and passing attack, Does NOT wear the opposing Defense out, compared to a greater split on the passing game equal to the smashmouth running gameplan combined. You yourself (I'd hope...buuut I doubt it), saw the way Tennessee's Defensive unit was simply SOoo defeated and sooo exhausted (hands on hips...wore theF down) in the 2nd half of game #1... NE had enforced THEIR will on them FAR more in that game. Ya get more points on O this way (fantasy fans rejoice to the gods)...but you hamstring yourself in so many different and multidinous ways that hurts you in the ultimate endgame...On O AND on Defense given this approach.
Bredbru: "Secondary gives up first downs in the air for lots'a yards..."
Laz: "Great, great discussion as usual bredbru...thanx for the hot newsflash and relevant input."
^ Hey bred...IF you can find us some better CBs, just make sure that they come along with an actually existant Pass-rush and complimentary Offense that actually benefits the Defense through their own efforts to wear down the opposition, afford their D some additional rest and adjustment periods, as well as have the capability to even once come through themselves late in a contest in order to solidify and ceal-out the game throughout maintaining dominance in the 2nd half on that side of the ball, and/or simply be in position wherein they're strong enough and have chipped away at the opposing squads D starters- wearing them down enough through the first 45-55 minutes, in order to finish them off come the 4th Q, and/or final drive of the game.
So get back to us with your extended free agent CB list which includes also, a new D-Line, new Outside Linebackers, a brand new Offensive line, a couple of HOF Runningbacks, a new Quarterback whom enjoys being under center, and a correctly tailored gameplan and new array of a few more NE Coaches to successfully enact this scheme, o.k.?
bred: "But I see NE Cornerbacks giving up pass-catches and they don't even score any Touchdowns for the pats."
^ Hey bud, IF it makes ya feel any better, IF NE's Secondary didn't take a pick back to their own 6 yard line, giving the O 1st and Goal from there, We would've lost 31-23 instead... < See?!? Don't you feel better with that additional knowledge, right now? Bet'cha dooo...
